At CES this week speaker company GoldenEar Technology unveiled two new loudspeakers: the Triton Seven, a high-resolution tower loudspeaker and most affordable Triton yet, and the SuperSat 60/60C, a larger, more powerful versions of the company’s SuperSat 50/50C.
The new Triton Seven ($699.99 ea.) brings brings much of the performance of the larger Triton speakers a more compact size and affordable price range. Although it is the first Triton Tower without a built-in powered subwoofer, GoldenEar says it still achieves deep, subwoofer-like impactful bass performance.
The Seven’s unique cabinet shape is both acoustically purposeful and aesthetically unique. With a rearward rake and a complex crossover, both aligns the driver array precisely for a coherent wave-launch directed at ear level at the listening position, as well as results in non-parallel front and rear baffles for better control of internal standing waves.
Like the signature Triton Two, the Seven combines a D’Appolito array of bass midrange drivers, which surround the same High Velocity Folded Ribbon Driver (HVFR), used in both the Triton Two and Three.
In addition, their precisely curved cone combined with a specially formulated polypropylene cone material and unique apical glue bonding technique delivers superb high-definition midrange clarity and presence. Like the two larger Tritons, the Seven incorporates two side-mounted sub-bass radiators that are located on either side of the cabinet down near the floor for optimum coupling to the room. The Triton Seven’s high-resolution sonic performance makes it perfect for the highest quality two channel systems as well as the best multi-channel music and home theater systems.
Meanwhile, the SuperSat 60 and 60C ($799.99 each) are larger, more powerful versions of the award-winning SuperSat 50 and 50C. They are on-wall speakers designed to complement 60” and larger screens when used as left and right channels and mounted vertically next to them, as well as all screen sizes when used as a horizontal center channel or mounted on their optional stands. They provide a larger, more powerful, higher power-handling step-up from our best selling SuperSat 50C when used as a center channel paired with any of our Triton Towers.
