GoldenEar Technology’s Triton Five tower speaker is now available from UK dealers through Karma-AV. A larger version of GT’s award-winning Triton Seven, the Triton Five has greater dynamic range and even deeper bass extension. 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. T5gall1The Five's visually striking cabinet construction acts to supress 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 high-definition bass/midrange drivers and GT’s 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. 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. The Triton Five will be available in September 2015. www.karma-av.co.uk
