About the GoldenEar Triton One.R
It might seem odd to think of a speaker like the Triton One.R as a "bargain," but this tall, slender floorstander regularly gets compared favorably to speakers costing quite a bit more. It delivers what GoldenEar calls "boxless three-dimensional imaging" with the smooth, non-fatiguing character of its High-Velocity Folded Ribbon Tweeter (HVFR™). By squeezing air — rather than pushing it like a conventional tweeter — the HVFR design delivers articulate nuance with very low distortion.
The One.R is the only other model in GoldenEar's Triton line — besides their much more expensive flagship model, the Triton Reference — to use an advanced High-Gauss version of the company's acclaimed tweeter. It contains 50% more neodymium magnet material than previous models in the line, and attains even higher efficiency and greater control.
A unique three-way design
The high-end tweeter is placed between the two 5-1/4" upper bass/midrange drivers, above the three 5"x 9" powered sub-bass drivers. Further rounding out the bottom end, four 7" x 10" bass radiators flank either side of this floor-stander's non-resonant curved cabinet. One additional advantage of this setup: the tweeter and bass/midrange drivers get all your amplifier's attention, while the powered subs do the heavy lifting.
The Triton One.R's driver arrangement — with its world-class tweeter positioned between the bass/mid drivers — helps keep the transition between drivers smooth and seamless. And by incorporating the 1,600-watt powered subwoofers into the cabinet and crossover circuitry, GoldenEar further blends the frequencies to achieve transparent sound from top to bottom.
Designed with a simple, functional ergonomic visual aesthetic, this tower seems to lose itself in the mix it projects. Sparkling highs, robust bass without bloat, and ultra-low distortion, all with breathtakingly wide dispersion — the Triton One.R produces a soundstage that reaches out into the room as well as behind the speakers.
