I'm really interested in these as I'm looking for an inexpensive pair of studio monitors for my alternative set up.

I used to own a set of Tannoy DMT 12's II and I loved them.

Also love the mini-jacks for 'aux' input on the back. Pure pro.

Anyone see/hear/touch them in person and have a sense of optimism?

Anyone know what the cone material is?
If it's polypropylene, which looks possible, they will sound nothing like the old SGM. At best they'll sound like an SGM had a love child with a Genelec 1030(ish) which is far less exciting in my book.

Anyone see them at AES? If they’re anything close to DMT 10’s, they’ll be incredible

Speakers are highly dependant on quality engineering and fine details which rely on often incredibly specialised precision manufacturing processes - by hand.

This isn’t comparable to synths at all. I expect the only thing these have in common with the original Tannoys is the brand, appearance and the fact that they’re a concentric design.

Here for the gear
 

I've got a pair of Gold 5 that I have been listening and testing for some days.
I'm not a music professional but someone who enjoys good music quite passionately. I decided to share my impressions for those who wonder since there's not much real life information available on Gold series yet.

I live in Istanbul and all online dealers of the official distributor have Gold 5, 7 and 8 available for immediate delivery. So, I ordered a pair and they arrived next day. I have no idea why these speakers are not available elsewhere. Strange indeed.

What wonders me even more is the fact that they are available and there's still absolutely nothing (reviews) on the internet.

I'm about to get some new monitors and I'm interested in the Gold 8's
