Our Top Selling Golden Ear Loudspeakers
       Featured prominently on the cover of The Absolute Sound magazine, the Golden Ear Technology Triton Reference was Loudspeaker of the Year. They sell for $9000 pair.
       Your first reaction might be, my gosh, for that much money they should be loudspeaker of the year. Actually, this magazine reviews and critics high end audio components that sell for ten times that price. Yes, you can buy a pair of loudspeakers for your home, not intended for a recording studio, or any type of professinal application for $80,000... and many times more.
        So, an audio perfectionist loudspeaker for $9000 is almost reasonable.
        The first Golden Ear Triton was the Triton Two and it sells for $3500 a pair. It has almost as good of sound reproduction quality as the Reference, because they share significant differences from most speakers on the market, that are in the Golden Ear Triton Reference.
        Those two key ingrediants that make the Golden Ear Tritons so different and special, are a different kind of tweeter and a new design, built-in powered subwoofer.
     In 1972, Sandy Gross and Mathew Polk started Polk Audio. They were frends who loved music and hi-fi at John Hopkins University. Years later, Sandy left Polk to become a movie producer in Hollywood. But, that wasn't his cup of tea and he started a second speaker company in 1990 and called it Defnitive Technology. He built that up in a mega million dollar brand and sold it in 2004. He was retired, but his passion for music and perfectionist sound reproduction motivated him to create his third company. He called it Golden Ear Technology.
     The speakers of Golden Ear Technology have become, perhaps, the most highly reviewed and coveted line of loudspeakers. They have received award after award. To find out more and understand the unique technology and differences in the models... click here.

Triton 1.R
$6000
The least expensive Golden Ear floor standing tower. It still includes the Heil Air Motion transformer tweeter. The HVFH tweeter creates not coming from a box sound. Two 5/4 in. cast basket woofers coupled with dual planar sub-bass radiators. No powered sub. Special order.
The Triton 5 is loved by audiophiles, who shy away from powered subwoofers. Two cast basket, long throw woofers make excellent bass. FOUR side mounted, inertially balanced planar sub-bass radiators insure low frequency response. Special order.
The Triton Two is simply an amazing loudspeaker at an amazing price. The Heil (HFVH) tweeter generates high frequencies with realism and makes the music and singers not sound like they are coming out of a box. Each tower has a 1200 watt built-in powered sub. But, unlike normal power subs, which use big heavy slow cones the Triton Two uses two 5 by 9 inch racetrack, lightweight, low inertial drivers to make low bass. They are fast and musical. This is our best selling speaker.
