GoldenEar Technology is pleased to announce the new flagship in the Triton Series, the highly anticipated and award-winning Triton One, has begun shipping to dealers the week of August 4. GoldenEar’s Triton Floorstanding Tower Loudspeakers have redefined the concept of ultra-high-end performance at remarkably affordable prices. They have won virtually every significant award and are best sellers all around the world. “We are thrilled with the response to our new Triton One,” reports GoldenEar President Sandy Gross. “The pre-shipping orders have set a new record for GoldenEar. With dealers reporting a record number of pre-orders from their customers, I think that I can confidently state that the Triton One will achieve never before seen sales velocity at this price point.”
The Triton One is an evolutionary speaker that includes and builds upon all the advanced technologies that have made the Tritons famous. Perfect for two-channel music or multichannel music and home theater, The One is a sleek 54-inch tall tower that, like the Triton Two and Triton Three, houses a built-in powered subwoofer with 1,600-watt ForceField digital amplifier.
GoldenEar founders Sandy Gross and Don Givogue pioneered the concept of built-in powered subwoofers in 1995, and have been refining it ever since. Although the elimination of separate subwoofer boxes from the listening room is certainly a desirable benefit, the real reason for building in the subs is the achievement of far superior integration of the low frequencies with the rest of the loudspeaker system. While clearly important for movies, this is a tremendous benefit and absolutely critical for music.
The upper-bass/midrange and high frequencies are handled by a D’Appolito Array of two GoldenEar engineered spider-leg, cast-basket 5-1/4-inch drivers that surround the company’s signature High Velocity Folded Ribbon (HVFR™) tweeter. The extraordinary HVFR tweeter, which generates high-pressure by squeezing the air, rather than pushing and pulling it like conventional domes or ribbons, offers improved dynamic range and smooth response extending beyond 35kHz, without the break-up modes and zingy sounding distortion common to other tweeter types.
The One’s sleek, narrow cabinet, with its non-parallel walls (which dramatically reduce internal reflections and standing waves), is not only a gorgeous form factor, but results in noticeable performance benefits including very low coloration as well as the superior box-less imaging that all GoldenEar speakers are famous for. The result is a superb reference home audio and home theater loudspeaker, already honored by the prestigious 2014 CES Innovations Design and Engineering Award and a Sound & Vision Top Pick, that has performance equal to, and in many cases surpassing, speakers selling for 10 times its cost. The suggested U.S. retail price is $2,499.99 each.
