TRITON FIVE AND TRITON SEVEN HIGH-RESOLUTION TOWER LOUDSPEAKERS
The Triton Five and Triton Seven Towers bring Speaker-of-the-Year Award winning Triton Series performance into a more compact size and even more affordable price range. GoldenEar’s Triton Towers have set new performance and value standards all around the world. The Triton Five and Triton Seven passive towers follow in this auspicious tradition.
Although they are Tritons without built-in powered subwoofers, they still achieve superbly deep, subwoofer-like impactful bass performance by combining advanced technology drivers with our highly evolved and sophisticated Frequency Dependent Damping bass loading technology.
“Best Sound for the Money at CES 2015”– Robert Harley and Neil Gader The Absolute Sound on the Triton Five
Their unique cabinet shape is both acoustically purposeful as well as strikingly attractive. Its stylish rearward rake, in conjunction with the complex crossover, both aligns the driver array precisely for a coherent wave-launch directed at ear level at the listening position, as well as results in non-parallel front and rear baffles for better control of internal standing waves. And, of course, the non-parallel side cabinet walls and slanted top provide the same acoustical performance benefit, as well as looking great. Their precise and totally box less imaging characteristics are further enhanced by the narrow front baffle, as well as the diffraction less designer grille cloth sock which adds additional sheer damping to the cabinet. In addition, the beautifully sculpted piano-gloss black base adds significantly to their dynamic stability. “Forget $60,000 Speakers, we’ll take the GoldenEar Triton Seven … it has totally nailed it”– Caleb Denison, Digital Trends on the Triton Seven Like the signature Triton Two, they combine a D’Appolito array of bass/midrange drivers, which surround the same, now famous, High Velocity Folded Ribbon Driver HVFR™, used in all the Triton Towers.
The HVFR™ tweeter functions by pressurizing the air, rather than pushing and pulling it, for much better impedance matching with the air in the room. This results in superb extension combined with a silky-smooth non-fatiguing character, which is both unique and extraordinary. The spider leg cast-basket bass/midrange drivers, newly developed at our Arnprior, Canada engineering facility, have been specifically designed for exceptionally long-throw for tremendous dynamic range and extra-ordinarily deep bass response.
“The Triton Seven System is absolutely magical … a serious reference quality set of speakers”– Darryl Wilkinson, Sound & Vision
In addition, their precisely curved cone combined with a specially formulated polypropylene cone material and unique apical glue bonding technique delivers superb high-definition midrange clarity and presence. Like the powered Tritons, they incorporate two Triton Seven or Four Triton Five side-mounted sub-bass radiators that are located on either side of the cabinet down near the floor for optimum coupling to the room.
“GoldenEar’s new Triton Seven is downright unbelievable … gets my vote for the high-end audio bargain of CES”– Chris Martens, HiFi+ on the Triton Seven
The Tritons’ high-resolution sonic performance makes them perfect for the highest quality two channel systems as well as the best multi-channel music and home theatre systems. As with all GoldenEar speakers, development work is conducted at our Arnprior engineering facility utilizing our full-size anechoic chamber, which is an exact duplicate of the chamber at the NRC in Ottawa, Canada, in combination with intense critical listening.
