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.
