“Hear­ing my ref­er­ence tracks on those über-ex­pen­sive ($85,000) speak­ers, I was sur­prised at how well the Ref­er­ence com­pared … un­bri­dled ex­cel­lence” - Al Gri n, Sound & Vi­sion “„e Tri­ton Ref­er­ence presents a se­ri­ous chal­lenge to speak­ers in the multi $10K range” – Robert Deutsch, Stereophile “Un­de­ni­ably stel­lar … Yes, it does de­liver the sort of per­for­mance pre­vi­ously de­liv­ered only by cost-no-ob­ject speak­ers.” – Den­nis Burger, Home „eater Re­view “„ey are Œat-out in­cred­i­ble, knock-your-damnsocks-oŽ, jaw-drop­pingly re­al­is­tic, en­rap­tur­ing speak­ers.” – Caleb Den­ni­son, Dig­i­tal Trends

Gold­e­n­ear’s Tri­ton One is one of the best sell­ing high-end loud­speak­ers ever, con­sis­tently thrilling lis­ten­ers and re­view­ers alike and win­ning an en­vi­able and un­matched col­lec­tion of the in­dus­try’s most pres­ti­gious awards, in­clud­ing “Loud­speaker-of-the-year” and “Prod­uct-of-the-year” from key pub­li­ca­tions all around the world. Clearly, we knew that the One would be a very hard act to fol­low. „ere was a spir­ited dis­cus­sion within our prod­uct de­vel­op­ment group about an all-out as­sault on the ul­ti­mate, cost-no-ob­ject, state-of-the-art, to pro­duce a six-‡gure loud­speaker to do bat­tle with the most es­o­teric and ex­pen­sive loud­speak­ers on the planet. How­ever, af­ter much soul-search­ing, ra­tio­nal minds won out, and the de­ci­sion was made to cre­ate a new Gold­e­n­ear ‰ag­ship, po­si­tioned above the Tri­ton One (of course still cur­rent and avail­able), that would joust with the best, but still stick to our trade­marked slo­gan, “We Make High-end A‘ord­able.” We are pleased and proud to in­tro­duce the new Tri­ton Ref­er­ence. „e Ref­er­ence has be­gun gath­er­ing its own col­lec­tion of hon­ors, win­ning the pres­ti­gious and cov­eted CES In­no­va­tions De­sign and En­gi­neer­ing Award, Dig­i­tal Trends Best Home Au­dio Tech at CES, HD GURU Best High Fidelity Loud­speaker at CES and What Hifi Stars of CES! And Tri­ton Ref­er­ence won the grand slam from Ab­so­lute Sound at CES, where all four of their writ­ers hon­ored T Ref with their highly cov­eted ac­co­lade, “Best Sound (for the money)”! „e Tri­ton Ref­er­ence is an evo­lu­tion of ev­ery­thing that we have achieved with the Tri­ton One, but taken to a stun­ning new level of sonic per­for­mance and so­phis­ti­cated visual de­sign. All the com­po­nents in the T Ref: in­clud­ing larger, more pow­er­ful, ac­tive sub­bass driv­ers with huge “Fo­cused Field” mag­net struc­tures, up­per­bass/midrange driv­ers with “Fo­cused Field” mag­net struc­tures, and High-ve­loc­ity Folded Rib­bon tweeter with 50% more rare earth neodymium mag­net ma­te­rial, are brand new, and have been speci‡cally de­vel­oped for use in the Ref­er­ence. „e pow­er­ful 1800 watt sub­woofer am­pli‡er, with level con­trol to ‡ne tune the bass to your room, and 56-bit DSP con­trol unit are a signi‡cant evo­lu­tion of those in the Tri­ton One and our Su­per­subs.

„ere are a myr­iad of other signi‡cant up­grades and re‡ne­ments, in­clud­ing: new in­ter­nal wiring with a spe­cially de­vel­oped twist, fur­ther de­vel­op­ment of our sig­na­ture bal­anced crossover in­clud­ing ‡lm ca­pac­i­tors bridged across the high-pass sec­tion on the up­per­bass/midrange driv­ers, a unique pro­pri­etary mix of long-‡ber lamb’s wool and Dacron for more e‘ec­tive in­ter­nal damp­ing, in­ten­sive work with a high-res­o­lu­tion ac­celerom­e­ter to de­ter­mine the most e‘ec­tive im­ple­men­ta­tion of com­plex in­ter­nal brac­ing, a 3/32"-thick steel plate built into the medite base to fur­ther sti‘en it for in­creased sta­bil­ity, new stain­less steel ‰oor spikes and cups, all of which re­sults in higher res­o­lu­tion of sub­tle de­tails … and the list goes on and on. Vis­ually, the Ref­er­ence o‘ers a strik­ingly beau­ti­ful up­grade to the clas­sic Tri­ton styling, with a gor­geous hand-rubbed pi­ano gloss-black lac­quer ‡nished one-piece mono­coque cabi­net. Sleek, stat­uesque and re‡ned, the Ref­er­ence is sim­ply an el­e­gantly gor­geous state­ment piece that will ex­cite lis­ten­ers with its dy­namic visual pres­ence, as well as its ex­tra­or­di­nary sonic per­for­mance.

Son­i­cally, the Ref­er­ence has been en­gi­neered to per­form with a dra­matic and au­thor­i­ta­tive voice, com­pa­ra­ble to speak­ers that sell for ten and more times its sur­pris­ingly a‘ord­able price. T Refs com­pletely dis­ap­pear, with su­perb three-di­men­sional imag­ing that will open up your room, stretch­ing from wall to wall and be­yond, and depth that makes the wall be­hind them seem to van­ish. „e as­ton­ish­ing bass is rock-solid, with low-fre­quency per­for­mance that is tight, quick, highly im­pact­ful and mu­si­cal with ex­ten­sion ‰at to 20Hz and be­low. An­other Gold­e­n­ear sig­na­ture is a silky smooth high end that ex­tends to 35 khz with a life­like sheen but no trace of fa­tigu­ing hard­ness, sibi­lance or stri­dency so com­mon with lesser tweet­ers. Tremen­dous time and en­ergy has been put into the voic­ing of the speaker and the seam­less blend­ing of the driv­ers, for un­matched mu­si­cal­ity with all types of mu­sic, and home the­ater per­fec­tion. Rarely do speak­ers ex­cel at both, but with their world-class neu­tral­ity, the Ref­er­ence ab­so­lutely does. A spe­cial bonus is the Ref­er­ence’s ex­tremely high 93.25 db sen­si­tiv­ity, which gives them tremen­dous dy­namic range and al­lows use with al­most any high-qual­ity am­pli‡er. You must ex­pe­ri­ence T Ref for your­self!
