If you are talking about the old prestige line I think it is called. I think you should speak with the US distributor. Limiting factors might be cost as well as room size and amps.

Tannoys can work very well in many different rooms. There has been discussion on this very subject recently on Hans Hilberink's Tannoy Yahoo website.
Google the Yahoo forum site, and also Hans' Tannoy website.
I use 12" HPD 315's, with either an SET 300B amp, or, 500 Wpc Class D amps in my 16.5' X 34' w/cathedral ceilings, excellent results with both amps in this setting.
Best of luck, regards,
I have a very similar room dimensions as yours and I use a Tannoy Turnberry SE. I have powered with various tube and SS amps. It is the right size for such a room IMO. I have also heard a Kensington and Stirling SE in similar rooms and all of them sounded extremely comfortable (without much of room treatments except some carpet and curtains around). Canterburry in such a room is borderline case definitely.
After much research and phone calls I decided to not purchase Tannoy's at this time.
I purchased the book "Get Better Sound " by Jim Smith.
I want to thank everyone for the reply's and in the future I may get them but for now I will work on my room .
This weekend I finished reading the book and I must say it is very good.
Without any other changes I moved my equipment back 2" against the front wall and moved my mono bloc's out of the corners and it is noticeable clearer and tighter edges not wow but it is noticeable.
Next will bed sound panels.
This book is highly recommended.
