GoldenEar Technology New Triton Five tower speaker and the larger Triton Seven are available from UK dealers through Karma-AV. Several important refinements from the flagship Triton One speaker have imbued the Triton Five with better imaging and a more sophisticated overall sonic presentation for demanding two-channel and multi-channel audio applications.

The Five’s cabinet construction of non-parallel baffle, top and side walls acts to suppress internal standing waves while aligning the driver array with ear level at the listening position. Its box-less audio character is further enhanced by a narrow front baffle in concert with a diffraction-free grille cloth sock – which adds additional damping to the cabinet – and a sculpted piano-gloss black base, which provides stability.

Like the Triton One, Two, and Seven before it, the Five utilises a D’Appolito Array of two bass/midrange drivers and GT’s now familiar High Velocity Folded Ribbon tweeter. The HVFR tweeter is a variation of an accordion-like ribbon transducer – the Air Motion Transformer – invented by Oscar Heil. 20627339268_52927fb08f_z

Rather than vibrate when current is applied, the folded HVFR ribbon works like a squeeze box: the folds squeeze and expand with the current to produce sound waves. A larger radiating area is created, which is greater than the sum of four conventional one inch dome tweeters. The HVFR design also offers a wider dispersion pattern and higher efficiency.

Above and below the tweeter, the cast-basket 6″ bass/midrange drivers are engineered for an exceptionally long-throw, producing exceptional dynamic range and a deeper bass response. Their precisely-curved polypropylene cone design also delivers excellent midrange clarity and presence. 20815312135_cb74030187_z

Like the Triton One, the Five incorporates four side-mounted 8” sub-bass radiators (two on each side), located near the floor for optimum coupling to the room. Compared with the Triton Seven, the Five’s larger sub-bass radiating area, cabinet and drivers combine to produce deeper low-distortion bass quality and richer midrange detail from a sleek, attractively-sized, passive speaker.
