These speakers are very efficient and with built-in sub amps you will be fine

I purchased an XPR-2 and I know it's probably overkill because the speakers are supposed to be really efficient. Depending on your room size and listening levels you should be fine.

I would love to hear these in person as I am interested in buying them based on a short listen to the 3's and the 7's. What I would want is a new center channel that can keep up with the output of the ones for home theater use.........then I may be very interested.

I just got the GoldenEars SuperCenter XL to replace my SC60 and what a difference. One needs a deep shelf to make it work the best but a much better center channel. As you can see on the picture I need a deeper mantle - I was able to pull the speaker out about two inches and it made a huge difference and I plan to modify the mantle to give me at least six inches.depth behind the speaker

The One is the first speaker I have bought in decades without listening to them. But given Sandys performance on the previous speakers and the sound of my Titian Twos I am not worried.

Hi,
is the T1 only intended for large rooms or also midium and small sized rooms, or will the T2 be a btter choice for medium and small rooms ?

And is the auto ON and OFF of the subwoofers a 100% working system, or do they stay OFF when they play very low volume music ?
The auto ON and OFF for most active subwoofer work very bad and need a lot of audio power to turn ON and stay ON.......

Thx

Tritons vs. JTR's

Any thoughts on how these would compare with JTR 888's in terms of output capability? I sure the Triton 1's wouldn't play as loud as the JTR's, but I'm guessing they'll certainly be more musical and refined. I don't mind a little bit of loss in output capability as I don't use the full output capability of the JTR's, but at the same time, I don't want to have to worry about compression, distortion, and/or damaging speaker drivers if I really crank them up. The same question would also apply to the Supercenter XL speaker as well. Thanks.

I just recently demoed the Triton Sevens and was more than impressed with them. However, the one thing I found disappointing was the deeper base; it just wasn't as present as I was hoping. This could have been due to several reasons: the size of the room (a medium sized demo room); the source material (mostly, normal CDs); or something with the speakers or their connection. When I put my ear to the passive radiators, I heard nothing. Was this correct? I understand that the Sevens lack the powered subwoofer of the other Triton models, but I was still expecting a bit more of the deep base (among the music I demoed were pipe organ, 70s electronic & prog/art rock, and symphonic). For example, playing Heart's Magic Man off the Dreamboat Annie CD, there's a synthesized note that drops down until it becomes an almost menacing floor of deep bass. With the 7s, I heard the bass, but it wasn't that floor I was hoping for (and used to get from my old Cambridge Soundworks system, with its nonpowered subwoofer, back in the early 90s). Was I hearing a limitation of the speaker or was something wrong? Otherwise, the sound was spectacular, holographic, precise, and revealing.

I was going to post something very similar to this. I am going to be getting new speakers down the road here and I am thinking the new JTR 215's, but I would also like to hear the new Triton 1's. Anybody ever compare any of the two, JTR vs Golden Ear?

The Triton Ones are not out yet - They start shipping in July. Oops now scheduled for August.

Edit: update on this posting confirms August by Sandy: GoldenEar Technologies Anticipation Thread

Awesome. I just sent an email to my dealer trying to confirm when they will get their shipment. Then it's magic time!

Although I'm not a fan of speakers that need to be plugged in, I will nevertheless pay attention to the Triton One review in the next issue of The Absolute Sound.

And as far as the power consumption goes, perhaps it runs on a similar principle as Def Tech's new Mythos ST-L. They, too must plug in, and according to DT the ST-L internal subs are rated at 1200W capability and pull 700W max, which is going full-bore and just before a fuse would blow. Recommended amplification is 20–350W, with a frequency range of 14Hz–30KHz. The M-3si (my speaker) has a frequency range of 30Hz–30KHz. My MC501s feed them around 5W average at 42% volume, my "reference level" in here.

So if the Triton Ones operate in a similar way, power consumption shouldn't be much of a big deal unless you're killing them, I suppose. My amps don't pull much power at all, whch is in my favor; the B&Ks before them pulled more at less than half the power capacity. My Mac dealer sells Golden Ear also, so I have a place to go hear them if it gets to that point.

If you can afford the speakers, you can probably handle the electric bill,

True enough, but I was addressing the earlier questions about power consumption with regard to line capacity. In my particular space, outlets and lines are limited. My system shares a line with an air conditioner unfortunately, and the room has only 3 duplexes. The stereo shares one with my computer setup. I do have a voltage regulator with some free plugs, so the GLs would have to go into those if I went for them, but this is why I was curious about power consumption.
