TRIANGLE BOREA ACTIVE SPEAKERS
If you’re in the market for active speakers for a desktop, hi-fi or TV system, say hello (or rather, bonjour) to the latest creations from French hi-fi brand Triangle. The suitably named BR02 BT and BR03 BT bookshelf speakers hope to deliver the sonic success of the existing passive (‘BT’-less) designs in a more convenient wireless package. To that end, both support the high-quality aptX HD Bluetooth codec, which allows for (compressed) audio transmission up to 24-bit/48kHz with low latency.
The two pairs don’t go as far as some all-in-one active types in offering network wi-fi streaming, though Bluetooth is by no means the only input option available to owners. There are optical, coaxial, 3.5mm and subwoofer connections, as well as a pair of RCAs that can be configured as a moving-magnet phono input to accommodate a turntable. The BR02 BT deliver 50 watts per channel to their 13cm mid/bass drivers (the same used across the Borea range) and EFS fabric dome tweeters, while the BR03 BT offer 60 watts per channel to the same tweeter but a larger, 16.5cm mid/bass. The speakers operate in a ‘master’ and ‘slave’ configuration, meaning only one in each pair packs amplification and requires power. A 3m speaker cable to connect the two is provided in the box, as is a remote control.
The Triangle Active BR02 BT and BR03 BT sell for $1,000 and $1,200 (RRP) respectively and will be available imminently in black, cream and light oak finishes.
