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."

Triton Reference Wins Sound & Vision Top Pick of the Year

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 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.
