Opinion regarding Golden Ear Technology Triton 1R


Was looking to update my loudspeaker which is currently the Triton 5 which retails for $2500.00 per pair.
The new Triton 1R came out in approximately December of 2019 and retails for $6000.00. I heard it today at my dealer and liked it very much. Looking to see if anyone else has heard or owned these speakers and their thoughts with regard
to them. If there is another speaker that you can recommend (new only) that is in the same price category I would be
interested in getting your opinion.

I own Golden Ear speakers myself and love them.  I have the Triton References, not the 1R and also own Triton Ones.  They both are excellent.  A friend has heard the Triton One R and he said it sounds almost as good as my References.  As I never heard them, I am unable to comment.

Be prepared for fellow audiophiles to tell you how bad sounding and looking GE speakers are.  It always comes up in the conversations.
its got lots of woofers so good if you like plenty of bass and boom for parties. Other than that its just a typical box speaker.

Have you concluded this after listening to them?
Hello friends, I'm in the process of breaking in my triton 1 r speakers. I'm playing them at a low to mid volume with a speaker burin in cd that makes all kinds of funky sounds. The right speakers blue light is on when playing this disc. The left speakers blue light does not turn on, From what I can gather the speaker is working just not showing of the blue light during play. Is this typical? Is there a reset of some sort I can do to get both blue lights on when speakers are in use. When I plugged in the speaker that does not shine blue when playing, it did go through the 25 or so on off sequence when first attached. Can anyone offer me any insight here? A huge thank you to anyone who can help.
Kind regards,
Mikey dee.
I would call the manufacturer most are very willing to answer product questions.
There have been other posters in other threads contending that 1R's are much better than previous GE speakers.  I don't know which threads but you might find them with a search.

If you have a chance to hear Spendor D7 at same or lower cost, I'd recommend an audition.  Only you can decide which you'll like better.

Good luck

if the blue light isn’t on, then the subwoofer amp isn’t working and there will not be any bass from the 3 woofers.
