Gold­enEar’s new Tri­ton One.R speaker, which is based on Gold­enEar’s flagship model, the Tri­ton Ref­er­ence, is now avail­able in Aus­tralia through Na­tional AV Solutions. ‘ This ex­traor­di­nary new ref­er­ence qual­ity loud­speaker is a smaller, less ex­pen­sive fol­low-up to the Tri­ton Ref­er­ence, which has had a re­mark­able re­sponse in the mar­ket­place from both mu­sic and hi-fi en­thu­si­asts as well as the press and re­view­ers from around the world, who have be­stowed upon it nu­mer­ous ‘prod­uct-of-the-year’ awards,’ said Claver Harper, of Na­tional AV Solutions, which dis­trib­utes Gold­enEar in Aus­tralia. ‘ In fact, here in Aus­tralia, the Tri­ton Ref­er­ence is Sound & Im­age Mag­a­zine’s cur­rent ‘Loud­speaker of the Year 2018–19’ while over­seas, Sound & Vi­sion mag­a­zine has just awarded it their Loud­speaker Top Pick of the Year.’

Sandy Gross, founder and owner of Gold­enEar Tech­nol­ogy, told Aus­tralian Hi-Fi Mag­a­zine that the goal of the Tri­ton One.R project was to bring the tech­nol­ogy and per­for­mance of the com­pany’s flagship Tri­ton Ref­er­ence into a more com­pact and less ex­pen­sive speaker. ‘ There are three newly-de­signed race­track-shaped five by nine inch ac­tive sub­woofer driv­ers on the front of the cabi­net, which have spe­cial poly­mer im­preg­nated nomex cones in or­der to min­i­mize cone breakup when strongly driven, and there are four seven by ten inch qua­dratic pla­nar in­fra­sonic ra­di­a­tors to ex­tend the low fre­quency re­sponse,’ said Gross. ‘ The High Ve­loc­ity Folded Rib­bon tweeter, is the same one used in the Tri­ton Ref­er­ence, and is a new de­sign that in­cor­po­rates 50 per cent more neodymium mag­netic ma­te­rial than pre­vi­ous units, for higher ef­fi­ciency and greater con­trol. The two five and a quar­ter inch up­per bass/midrange driv­ers are also new, in­cor­po­rat­ing a spe­cial for­mu­la­tion of polypropy­lene which com­bines su­pe­rior in­ter­nal damp­ing with a higher speed of trans­mis­sion through the cone.’

‘ Thanks to painstak­ing lis­ten­ing and voic­ing ses­sions in Gold­enEar’s lis­ten­ing room, the voic­ing of the new Tri­ton One.R mir­rors that of the Tri­ton Ref­er­ence,’ said Harper. ‘ The new Tri­ton One.R’s cabi­net is also gor­geous, be­ing painstak­ingly fin­ished in hand-rubbed piano black lac­quer. Over­all, it presents it­self as an ex­quis­ite, sleek, ul­tra-high-per­for­mance life­style loud­speaker that de­liv­ers ex­traor­di­nary sound qual­ity that’s com­pa­ra­ble with speak­ers sell­ing for many times the Tri­ton One.R’s rec­om­mended re­tail price of $11,500 per pair.’
