GoldenEar Technology is showing off an update to its Triton Series loudspeaker line at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show. Sandy Gross and company are also unveiling a new entry in the SuperSat family.

The Triton Seven is different from other speakers in the line in that it does not include  a built-in powered subwoofer. GoldEar compensates for this with advanced drivers and bass-loading technologies.

Fans of GoldenEar’s Triton Two will appreciate the Seven’s D’Appolito array of bass midrange drivers and the High Velocity Folded Ribbon Driver (HVFR). The Seven has two side-mounted sub-bass radiators that are located on either side of the cabinet near the floor for optimum coupling to the room.

The Triton Seven is 40 and 1/4 inches high by 5 and 3/4 inches wide (on the front) and 7 and 1/4 inches wide (on the rear). The frequency response is 29 Hz-35 kHz with a sensitivity of 89 dB.

GoldenEar’s Triton Seven ships in the spring of 2013 with a price tag of $699.99 each. Hometechtell’s Dennis Burger had a chance to demo the Triton Seven in Vegas. His review “positively orgasmic.”

[Dennis Burger interjecting here: I did indeed describe them thusly, given the confines of a text message in which to express myself. That barely covers it, though. When Sandy told me the price on the Seven, my jaw literally dropped. Because John Sciacca, Darryl Wilkinson, and I had been soaking up a private sneak peek for a good half an hour before learning the MSRP, and I seriously would have pegged these as costing nearly as much as the Triton Two. The sound -- especially the bass -- is just absolutely incredible. Imaging is downright startling, dynamics are startling, and the speakers' ability to penetrate the air in the room with silky smooth, distortion-free fidelity is just staggering for a speaker at any price, much less one this cheap. Turning it back over to Michael...]

GoldenEar is also updating its SuperSat line. The SuperSat 60 and 60C are larger and more powerful than the previous models. The speakers have been designed with 60-inch and larger screens in mind. The speakers can be used as left and right channels mounted vertically or mounted horizontally on optional stands. The SuperSat 60C can also be used as a center channel when paired with any of GoldenEar’s Triton Towers.

GoldenEar has included 4.5-inch cast spiderleg-basket bass/midrange drivers in these new speakers.  The SuperSats also benefit from Multi-Vaned Phase-Plugs configured in a two-stage D’Appolito Array that surround our GoldenEar’s signature High-Velocity Folded Ribbon high-frequency radiator. The SuperSats are thin and easily mounted, and also include dual adjustable feet for various placement options.

The SuperSat 60 and 60C will be available in January of 2013 and will retail for $799.99 each. For more information visit GoldenEar online or call 410.998.9134
