GoldenEar Speakers was founded by Sandy Gross and Don Givouge. Sandy was a founder of both Polk Audio and Definitive Technology. His work with these companies led to his greatest achievement - the founding of Golden Ear. The research and design team at GoldenEar leverages their experience to develop clear sonic superiority and performance, even compared to speakers that cost three to five times as much. Regardless of price, every product designed by GoldenEar has that 'signature sound' that their company has become renowned for.

The Triton Reference is the evolution of all we’ve learned so far, taken to a stunning level of sonic performance and sophisticated visual design. All the components are specifically developed for use in the Reference, including the fully-balanced and the powerful subwoofer amplifier and 56-bit DSP control unit.

The 6˝ upper/bass/midrange drivers incorporate a low-mass voice coil and cone with unique low-mass bonding to the butyl rubber surround for improved transient response. The 6˝x10˝ active low-frequency drivers for the built-in powered subwoofers have 40% more surface area than the active drivers used in other Tritons. The Reference High-Velocity Folded-Ribbon tweeter incorporates 50% more rare-earth neodymium magnet material than do our non-Reference HVFR tweeters, for improved transient response and higher efficiency. The four inertially balanced 10.5˝x 9.5˝ side-mounted (two on each side), planar back-wave-driven radiators are similar to those used in the SuperSub X, but have been retooled to allow for even greater excursion.

The Reference has been engineered to perform with a dramatic and authoritative voice, comparable to speakers many times its surprisingly affordable price. They completely disappear, with superb three-dimensional imaging that stretches from wall to wall and beyond. 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.
