The latest issue of Sound & Visions magazine awards Triton Reference its Top Pick of the Year in speakers, saying, "GoldenEar scored last year with the biggest and best Triton of all, the Reference - which, despite its considerable price, successfully defended itself against uber-expensive high-end towers going for nearly ten times its cost."

 

Triton Reference Earns HomeTheaterReview.com Best of 2017 Award

Highlighting that the Triton Reference is pretty much an entirely new creation that delivers more power, more dynamics, deeper bass, and superior imaging--in a towering yet elegantly sculpted cabinet with a beautiful gloss black finish, Dennis Burger writes in his review, "What makes GoldenEar speakers so beloved is that they combine stunning detail with staggering dynamics. That folded motion tweeter, combined with the powered bass section, results in equal authority across the entire audible frequency range."

 

Triton Reference Selected as 2017 Loudspeaker of the Year

Piero Gabucci, Co-Editor at SECRETS OF HOME THEATER AND HIFI, writes, "I offer no rhetoric, no extraneous wit or hyperbole in my simple and honest admiration for the T-Ref as these are top to bottom, first class reference quality speakers. The GoldenEar Triton Reference Loudspeakers are aural satisfaction at its finest: not simply excellent sound reproduction but soulful, engaging and sublime musical art."  Per SECRETS: a “Product of the Year” is a product that not only sets the bar for its category, it is a product that we believe will inspire real innovation and progress from its competitors. We consider new technologies, performance and value; and when a component excels at all three, we afford it this prestigious recognition.

Digital Trends Goes GaGa Over Triton Reference

Caleb Denison in Digital Trends raves, "These speakers are meant to be a model for sound quality, accuracy, transparency realism, and they are. The only problem is that the price is somewhere between 2-3 times less than the speakers that they compete against...They are flat-out incredible, knock-your-damn-socks-off, jaw-droppingly realistic, enrapturing speakers...The GoldenEar Triton Reference loudspeakers aren't an evolution or a revolution, they're both!".
