Hi folks,
I just received my brandnew Tannoy Arden speakers!
The speakers are connected to my Mcintosh MA9000 amp. Do i have to ground the speakers by connecting it by the fifth terminal of the speaker to the amp? I use Studio Connection speaker cables.

No, under normal operating conditions you don’t need to ground the speakers. I’ve never used the 5th terminal on my Tannoy’s and they work just fine.

Congrats on the new Arden. How about some pictures.

I am new to Tannoy and would like to know more about the philosophy of the brand. The Arden is somehow mimicking the 70s sound signature that is a little blurry or has reverbs. Also a little rolled off at the top end. My questions is why to make s whole new line with this sound signature while the customers can just manipulate the treble frequencies just like on any other Tannoy speaker?
I did not hear the Arden before and I am going to get the one of the Tannoy speakers but can not decide yet. Unfortunately, auditing is not an option for me.
Not sure if to get the Arden or Kensington, can someone help to choose? I know it is subjective and a matter of personal taste but your help is appreciated.

Hej

Will Arden work in a smaller room like 15 x 13 feet (8 ft high)? Are they picky to place?
Today I have Eatons but I'm considering Ardens due to bass and sensivity.
