    MY TAKE:  No other speaker manufacturer on the planet has received more praise from audiophile reviewers and listeners around the world than Golden Ear Technologies. And not just one or two models, but every single offering in their broad line up is a winner. Hands down, one of the most high-value speaker lines available today. – Galen Carol
     

    Triton Towers Overview -

    The Triton Series Towers are high-performance loudspeakers, with the top three models including a built-in powered subwoofer. All the Triton Towers are engineered for superb performance in both high quality two channel stereo systems as well as in multi-channel home theater and music systems. Their sleek, elegantly curved and tapered design is not only gorgeous but is important from a performance perspective as well. Performance-wise, the Triton Towers all deliver boxless three-dimensional imaging, which reviewers have hailed as "mystical", "magical" - and, best summed up by the dramatic, "had us believing that the entire surface of the front wall was covered with speakers.". Likewise, the powerful, deep subwoofer bass blends perfectly with the silky smooth, utterly transparent midrange and high frequencies, putting many dramatically more expensive speakers to shame.

    The powered subwoofer sections in each Triton One, Two+ and Three+ incorporate a high power GoldenEar ForceField digital amplifier. The amplifier’s DSP design not only yields extremely linear and low distortion response, but also dynamically controls operating parameters for optimum performance. The amp drives up to three 5" x 9" front-mounted quadratic subwoofer bass drivers which are coupled to multiple side-mounted quadratic planar infrasonic bass radiators. The result is awe-inspiring bass, which delivers both musical subtlety as well as room-shaking authority. The advantages of building the subwoofers into the Tritons are many. First, of course, this eliminates the need for additional subwoofer boxes in the room. But more important are the performance advantages. By engineering the subwoofer as an integral part to the speaker, we get far superior integration and blending than can be achieved with separate subwoofers, even when using two. The two subwoofers in a pair of Tritons couple better to the air in the room, helping to better deal with the room's eigenmodes and smooth out response. Of course, the dual subwoofers are also intrinsically more powerful and couple together synergistically for more truly exceptional bass.

    The hallmark of all GoldenEar speakers, the Triton Towers all utilize our High-Velocity Folded Ribbon (HVFR™) tweeter design. The HVFR tweeter propagates sound waves and moves the air by squeezing it with its accordion-like pleated diaphragm, rather than pushing it as conventional drivers do. Greater efficiency, lower distortion, improved dynamics and superbly detailed sound are the result of this amazing technology. And every Triton Tower utilizes our amazing spider-leg, cast-basket mid/bass drivers with proprietary computer optimized cone design that assures smooth, extended response.

    The Triton Tower’s striking, but harmoniously minimalist design, can fit nicely into a great variety of decors while going almost unnoticed. Their sleek, narrow baffle, sophisticated look also helps the speakers create truly magnificent 3D imaging with tremendous depth, height and width that extends well beyond the loudspeakers themselves. As with all GoldenEar speakers, development work is conducted at our Arnprior, Canada 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.

    The Triton Towers are all beautifully finished with an elegant black designer cloth, piano-black base and top cap.


    Triton Seven Tower -

    The Triton Seven brings Speaker-of-the-Year Award winning Triton Series performance into a more compact size and even more affordable price range. Although it is the first Triton Tower without a built-in powered subwoofer, it still achieves superbly deep, subwoofer-like impactful bass performance by combining advanced drivers with our highly evolved and sophisticated bass-loading technologies. Mike Mettler of Sound&Vision called the Triton Seven a “real reference speaker for $1400 a pair...they’ll likely become your next reference speakers, just as they've become mine”.

    Like the Five, the Seven’s strikingly attractive and acoustically purposeful cabinet provides the same performance benefits, as well as looking great. The Seven’s precise and totally boxless imaging characteristics are further enhanced by the narrow front baffle. A complex Linkwitz/Riley crossover perfectly blends the D'Appolito Arrayed twin 5-1/4" cast basket bass/midrange drivers specifically designed for exceptionally long-throw, for tremendous dynamic range and extraordinarily deep bass response. These surround the same signature High Velocity Folded Ribbon (HVFR™) tweeter for high-resolution reproduction of both music and cinema. And dual side-mounted inertially-balanced, planar sub-bass radiators deliver impactful, superbly detailed, subwoofer-quality bass performance. The Triton Seven’s high-resolution sonic performance makes it perfect for the highest quality two channel systems as well as the best multi-channel music and home theater systems.


    REVIEWS:

    CNET – “This speaker scores a perfect 10 with music and home theater. The GoldenEar Technology's Triton Seven sets a new standard for decorator-friendly tower speakers that appeal to the audiophile ear. The GoldenEar Technology Triton Seven is, as we audiophiles like to say, "transparent" -- it sounds like an open window to the sound of music. That's always the goal for high-end speakers, but only the very best ones take you all the way there. Sandy Gross, the company's founder, has a long history of making affordable audiophile speakers, first with Polk Audio and later Definitive Technology. The Triton Seven reaps the benefits of Gross' experience.” – Steve Guttenberg

    The Absolute Sound – “Here’s the bottom line: If you want to find out just how much high-end goodness $1399 can buy in a pair of loudspeakers, then you absolutely must audition the Triton Sevens. I consider this speaker a masterpiece of value-oriented audio engineering—one that sets a performance standard that will not easily be matched or surpassed. – Chris Martens

    Sound & Vision – “Sound & Vision – “The sans-subs Sevens were able to handily deliver the low-end punch, broad soundstage, and overall consistent clarity I require in a stereo set of speakers. As I was listening to a pair of primo Steely Dan albums on the Sevens for pure pleasure, a telling line in Gaucho’s “Time Out of Mind” jumped out at me more than once: “It’s perfection and grace.” And there you have it: If you’re chasing the ever-elusive sound-quality dragon, audio silver will turn to gold with a pair of GoldenEar Technology Triton Sevens. They’ll put a smile on your face. Not only that, they’ll likely become your next reference speakers, just as they’ve become mine.” – Mike Mettler

    Home Theater Review – “As you may have picked up on in the introduction, I normally don't expend much effort thinking about the price of a speaker. If a $40,000 speaker moves me and draws me into the music emotionally and texturally, then I'm unlikely to blink at its sticker price - because, while there is a serious science to good speaker design, there's also an art to it. There's no doubt that, even at $699, the GoldenEar Technology Triton Seven nails the science in terms of speaker design, with its beautifully balanced frequency response, wide dispersion, exceedingly low distortion, and smooth transition between low, mid, and high frequencies, not to mention its startling imaging and soundstage capabilities. But as much as I love quantification, specs and objective measurements can't tell you the whole story about a speaker and, although I'm not one to believe in magic, when you're kicked back in the dark with a pair of these little Tritons, soaking in the nuanced textures of Pink Floyd's "Shine on You Crazy Diamond" in high-resolution, it certainly sounds like there's a little bit of voodoo involved. While I'm thrilled that GoldenEar Technology has brought such an involving listening experience down to such an attainable level, I still find myself a bit shocked that they're willing to let go of such a stunning aural work of art for so little money.” – Dennis Berger

    Digital Audio Review – “Audiophile-grade reproduction from head to toe without (medium-sized) room overload. For entry-levellers looking for a floorstander that doesn’t demand bending one’s domestic arrangements to fit one’s hifi. A loudspeaker for real-world listening spaces then — and a truly superb-sounding one at that.” – John H. Darko
