GoldenEar at the 2018 Rocky Mountain Audio Fest

From Carlo Lo Raso of Secrets "Cave"

Dropped by GoldenEar where Sandy Gross had set up a surprisingly simple but insanely effective 2-channel rig for the show. A pair of Triton Reference speakers were configured, in an almost comically small room, with a Hegel H590 integrated amp (300 watts/channel) and a Hegel Mohican CD player. With the speakers toed in to converge directly on the sweet spot, the system threw a huge and detailed image with an almost endless dynamic reserve. The theory that you can overpower a room with too-large a choice of speaker was squarely being turned on its head!

From tesseract of AVNirvana

I love simplicity in a 2 channel system, which is exactly what we get here. Hegel CD player and integrated amplifier into the Triton Reference loudspeakers. Add some well-placed room treatments and BINGO, high fidelity realized! While the entire system is simple, the Triton Reference with multiple drivers is not. Few people can homogenize drivers into one cohesive speaker like Sandy Gross can. Well done!

Invisa Signature Point Source a "Best Audio Gear of the Year" Pick

Sound & Vision Magazine, in their annual Best Audio Gear of the Year (So Far), takes stock of the audio goodness bestowed upon them in the form of the top performing audio products reviewed so far this year — all recipients of Sound & Vision’s prestigious Top Pick designation and included the GoldenEar Technology Invisa Signature Point Source In-Wall Speaker System: $7,250 (as reviewed).

GoldenEar’s Invisa Signature Point Source speakers are proof that you can build an attractive, non-intrusive in-wall speaker offering performance that rivals that of an equivalently priced freestanding speaker. Throw in a SuperSub X subwoofer and there’s no turning back. “I’m not sure you can find another speaker at the $1K price point that sounds anywhere near as fantastic as the Invisa SPS in-wall does — whether it’s for a two-channel or multichannel system,” concluded reviewer Darryl Wilkinson. “Once again, GoldenEar has set a new high for the performance-to-cost ratio. More important, they’ve created an in-wall loudspeaker that just might convince a die-hard in-room speaker fan.”

Triton Reference Gets Its First Home Theater System Review

This rave review is in Secrets of Home Theater and HiFi, written by high-end reviewer Todd Cooperider. Todd wanted to go all out on this system, and so opted for Triton Reference up front and Triton One in the rear, with a SuperCenter XXL and 4 Invisa HTR 7000s doing Atmos height channel duty. What did he think? "... a world-class system that will give you unlimited amounts of listening pleasure."

Triton Reference Awarded Stereophile Magazine's Ultimate Honor

Stereophile Magazine has awarded Triton Reference its highest loudspeaker rating and honor: CLASS A FULL RANGE!!!! Just how special is Class A Full Range? There are a mere 14 of the world's best speakers in this category, and the next least expensive inclusion is almost double the T Refs price! An extraordinary achievement for T Ref, and one which shows that, of the small select group of the world's finest loudspeakers, one stands alone as a remarkably affordable choice.

Aussies Go Wild Over Triton Reference!

The conclusion of this great review by Australian hifi magazine Audio Esoterica really says it all: "It seems strange to be saying it of a pair of loudspeakers with the sticker price of the GoldenEar Triton References, but they really do live up to GoldenEar's famous claim of making the high-end affordable, because they are truly high-end loudspeakers and although they are expensive, they are far more affordable than almost all their high-end competitors, plus they sound a whole lot better than many of them as well."
