T66 Tower Speaker
with Powered Bass
Introducing the T Series
The T66 is the first model in GoldenEar’s new T Series. While it boasts several significant refinements of our time-tested design concepts, the T66 is undeniably a GoldenEar loudspeaker, placing beautiful sound and music before all else.
Honoring the Triton Series
The T66 honors the critically acclaimed Triton Series, sharing a similarly tall, slender profile; built-in DSP-controlled subwoofer amplification; and a driver complement comprising GoldenEar’s High-Velocity Folded Ribbon AMT tweeter, cast-basket mid/bass units, quadratic planar radiators, and long-throw powered sub-bass section.

High-Quality Binding Posts — Now BiWireable
Two pairs of binding posts accommodate biwiring and feature improved materials to minimize distortion. Includes AudioQuest’s Direct-Gold Plated Bare Naked Jumpers.
High-Definition Mid/Bass Drivers
GoldenEar’s cast-basket mid/bass drivers feature an improved yoke assembly to minimize distortion and employ Multi-Vaned Phase Plugs for excellent off-axis response.
Elegant CabinetDesigned for performance and beauty, the T66’s tall, slender cabinet contributes to the speaker’s holographic imaging and is proportionately the strongest cabinet GoldenEar has ever made.
Crossover and Internal Wiring
GoldenEar’s most sophisticated crossover ensures flat, +9-octave frequency response. Bypass-caps subjected to AudioQuest’s proprietary PMO (Permanent Molecular Optimization) process bring unprecedented clarity.
The T66 is internally wired with signal-preserving AudioQuest Perfect-Surface Copper+. The wire is also direction-controlled and employs a Carbon layer for maximizing RF-Noise Dissipation.
Sturdy and attractive cast-aluminum base features conical aluminum feet that are easily adjustable from above. The bottoms of the cones are flat for when solid but not spiked is best.
Separate Bass and Treble binding posts enable BiWiring. Separate Treble and Bass cables significantly reduce current-modulation distortion in the Treble cable.
For convenience, the speakers arrive with high-quality gold-plated PSC+ jumpers.
Critically finessed wool felt on the mounting plate and elsewhere minimizes diffraction and bounce distortions.
