GoldenEar has announced that the Invisa HTR 7000 and Invisa MPX architectural speakers we first reported on at last year’s CES and CEDIA are now shipping.

GoldenEar Invisa HTR 7000The $499 Invisa HTR 7000 — perfect for use as a ceiling-mounted LCR, or even a direct-radiating in-ceiling surround speaker — is built upon the signature High Velocity Folded Ribbon tweeter that gives all of GoldenEar’s speakers their incredible high-frequency performance, with virtually no distortion, incredible imaging, and an amazing ability to penetrate the air like few other drivers can. To enhance that imaging, GoldenEar has equipped the 7000 with a perfectly angled 7″ cast-basket driver borrowed from the company’s Aon 3 bookshelf. The entire driver array is positioned and engineered in such a way that the soundstage seems to emanate from the front wall itself, rather than the ceiling, while a magnetically attached microperf grille ensures that the speaker is practically invisible.
