"What might have been the most anticipated speaker launch of CES definitely delivered when GoldenEar demoed its new Triton One flagship tower speaker. I kept hearing showgoers rave about the Triton One’s sound… The mids and highs weren’t a surprise to me; they sounded as clean and spacious as the Triton Two does. But the bass was a little shocking: super-tight, super-powerful and seamlessly integrated with the mids. I heard a few people saying the ($5,000/pair U.S. Retail) Triton One sounded like some $20,000-and-up high-end towers, but I disagree: I think it sounded better than most of them. "
    — Brent Butterworth, Sound &Vision

"The Triton Ones may have been tall but sounded acoustically small, i.e., behaved as a point source that completely disappeared; the balance on a piano/bass/drums jazz track was smooth without being mellow, inviting yet detailed. And on Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man, the bass drum knocked me back in my seat. At a hair under $5k/pair, this speaker should be a best-seller."
    — John Atkinson, Stereophile

"Revelatory… cosmically orgasmic… a magnificent magnum opus… These speakers absolutely embalm the competition. "
    — Darryl Wilkinson, Sound &Vision

The GoldenEar Triton One is the flagship speaker of GoldenEar’s universally acclaimed Triotn Series. Building upon all the advanced technologies that have made the Tritons famous, the sleek, 54-inch tall Triton One represents the highest technology GoldenEar has to offer, including 56-bit DSP engine for the sub section, a fully balanced crossover design, high-end film capacitors, advanced cabinet design, and much more.

The Triton One includes a built-in subwoofer section powered by a 1600-watt GoldenEar ForceField digital amplifier. The amp drives three 5" x 9" front-mounted quadratic subwoofer bass drivers which are coupled to dual (per side) side-mounted 7" x 10" quadratic planar infrasonic bass radiators. GoldenEar’s newly developed Frequency Dependent Bass Loading Technology utilizes open-cell polyurethane foam damping pads, as well as special hollow-fiberfill, to further optimize low-frequency performance. There are two newly designed 5-1/4-inch cast-basket midrange/upper bass drivers, which incorporate GoldenEar’s proprietary Multi-Vaned Phase Plug (MVPP™) design, housed in dual discreet midrange chambers, arranged in a D’Appolito array surrounding the extraordinary GoldenEar High-Velocity Folded Ribbon (HVFR™) tweeter.

The result is a superb reference home audio and home theater loudspeaker, already honored with the prestigious 2014 CES Innovations Design and Engineering Award, that has performance equal to, and in many cases surpassing, speakers selling for ten times its cost. The Triton One offers remarkably precise 3D imaging with a huge soundstage of exceptional height, depth and breadth. And, of course, a pair’s dual powered subwoofers deliver remarkably deep, tight, bass performance, perfect for music as well as dynamic home theater.

Overview of Triton Towers
The Triton Series Towers are high-performance loudspeakers, with the top three models including a built-in powered ForceField subwoofer. All the Triton Towers are engineered for superb performance in both high quality two-channel stereo systems as well as in multi-channel home theater and music systems. Their elegantly curved and tapered design is not only gorgeous but is important from a performance perspective as well. Triton Towers all deliver three-dimensional imaging, which reviewers have hailed as "mystical," "magical," and "had us believing that the entire surface of the front wall was covered with speakers." Likewise, the powerful, deep subwoofer bass blends perfectly with the silky smooth, utterly transparent midrange and high frequencies, putting many dramatically more expensive speakers to shame.

The powered subwoofer sections in each Triton One, Two and Three incorporate a high power GoldenEar ForceField digital amplifier. The amplifier’s DSP design not only yields extremely linear and low distortion response, but also dynamically controls operating parameters for optimum performance. The amp drives up to four 5" x 9" front-mounted quadratic subwoofer bass drivers which are coupled to multiple side-mounted quadratic planar infrasonic bass radiators. The result is awe-inspiring bass, which delivers both musical subtlety as well as room-shaking authority.

The advantages of building the subwoofers into the Tritons are many. First, of course, this eliminates the need for additional subwoofer boxes in the room. But more important are the performance advantages. By engineering the subwoofer as an integral part to the speaker, we get far superior integration and blending than can be achieved with separate subwoofers, even when using two. The two subwoofers in a pair of Tritons couple better to the air in the room, helping to better deal with the room's eigenmodes and smooth out response. Of course, the dual subwoofers are also intrinsically more powerful and couple together synergistically for more truly exceptional bass.

Triton Towers utilize GoldenEar’s proprietary High-Velocity Folded Ribbon (HVFR™) tweeter design. The HVFR tweeter propagates sound waves and moves the air by squeezing it with its accordion-like pleated diaphragm, rather than pushing it as conventional drivers do. The result is greater efficiency, lower distortion, improved dynamics and superbly detailed sound. And every Triton Tower utilizes GoldenEar’s amazing spider-leg, cast-basket mid/bass drivers with proprietary computer optimized cone design that assures smooth, extended response.

With their sleek, narrow baffle, the Triton Tower’s sophisticated look not only blends with any décor, but also helps the speakers create truly magnificent 3D imaging with tremendous depth, height and width that extends well beyond the loudspeakers themselves. Development work is conducted at GoldenEar’s Arnprior, Canada engineering facility utilizing our full-size anechoic chamber, which is an exact duplicate of the chamber at the NRC in Ottawa Canada, in combination with intense critical listening.

The Triton Towers are all beautifully finished with an elegant black designer cloth, piano-black base and top cap.
