Mark Seaton from Seaton Sound played a DVD at Axpona in Chicago. The DVD was The Art of Flight and the audio and video are simply amazing. I ordered from Amazon during the show! It was sitting in my collection until i picked up my Triton Ones and finally had a chance to watch it last night. Between my Trition Ones and my dual Seatons I witnessed magic.

I highly recommend the Art of Flight!

Did you get the Bluray or the DVD cause the picture and sound on the Bluray are stunning.
Hope you like bass cause it will shake your house off the foundation.
And the scenery where they filmed is unbelievable.

Blu Ray only! I rarely purchase a standard DVD unless it's for my two year old to watch in the truck. The visuals are ridiculous. I am going to lock myself in the basement tomorrow and watch a couple of movies. I have not tweaked my Ones at all. I am going to wait until i break them in some more.

Just checking in to see if those that have gotten the Triton One's have any more info to share about their experience so far? And some pictures of the unboxing of them as well.

Thanks

I suspect the reviews will be hitting the magazines in Sept and October.

Yeah I read that last week, man I would have never accepted those boxes in that condition. They one nice thing about my Paradigms is they are dropped shipped straight from manufacturer via freight to the dealer, no UPS or Fedex involved.

Just got done auditioning a pair of Triton 1s. Even though the setting wasn't ideal (what showroom is?), I was extremely impressed. The imaging was, to me, astonishing. With very little tweaking I got an amazing center image, and the soundstage extended well beyond the speakers themselves. I may well be the 2nd person in Northern Virginia to own a pair, due some time in the next two weeks.

Hi, Sorry for the delays, but finally, our containers are moving. We expect to be shipping Triton Ones again in about a week. This will not cover all the backorder, as demand is going wild, but will make a good dent. As is normal, we will probably be running a backorder all fall, but our production capability is good so we will be able to meet the demand. As they say, all good things are worth waiting for. BTW, this appeared yesterday: http://www.hifiplus.com/articles/fir...loudspeaker-1/ Onward and Upward, Sandy

My system is 50/50 music/movies. Setup in a living room, mlp is about 11' away. Like to listen LOUD to both music and movies. Music is mostly CD and Vinyl, everything from jazz, classic rock, alternative, and industrial.

Thanks!
Nobody has any experience with comparing GoldenEar to NHT?

Indecision may or may not be my problem.

Yes I have 2 sets of nht speakers. 1 for my cottage ht and 1 set I use for my living room ht. The tritons I use for my 2 channel rig with my benchmark dac and bryston 4bbsst2 amp. The tritons are much better in my opinion.

I have owned four 2.5 NHT and an NHT center channel speaker since 1995. I was totally
blown away with the way they sounded. I always used a mid priced receiver so never really got the full potential of what these speakers could deliver. Two years ago I purchased a Marantz av7005 and an Emotiva xpa 5. What a difference. It made those speakers sing. Meanwhile I had been keeping up with the rave reviews for the Triton Two and purchased a pair the last day before their price went up. All I can say is that it has been the best investment in audio that I have ever made. I can't imagine a better set of speakers. But wait, there is more. I purchased a pair of Triton Ones a few weeks ago and they are totally awesome. So, in my opinion the Triton speakers are far and away better than the NHTs.

This was the same with me when I had my Triton 2's even though they were the best I had heard I was only using an AVR and no stand alone sub which never gave me the volume that I wanted. Now that I have a Pre/Pro setup plus an HSU sub I can't wait to get back to a pair of Tritons.

Thanks for the replies. I'm thinking of getting a pair of SVS PC12-Plus subs to place behind of a pair of Triton Sevens. Would that be a good match/setup? Also want to upgrade my old, mid-level Yamaha receiver with something nicer like a Marantz SR7009. I do have a Parasound high bias 200Wx2 amp to power the Sevens with. I think I want to get the subs first, just not sure if I should get the receiver before or after the speakers. My main issue is that my current receiver only has 1 global crossover point.

Indecision may or may not be my problem.

Might try setting all speakers to large & see if thereceiver lets you run the lfe and the speaker bass to the sub. On my Denon this is called lfe+.
