Triton Reference Review


Everyone, I am proud to present my review. Sandy Gross and members of the Golden Ear forum have had the opportunity to read much of this already. Other than that, you are among the first group of kind-folks to read this and rightly so, as we all wouldn't be here if we didn't primarily share the passion for music and secondarily share the desire to reproduce music by obtaining the best speakers and other gear we can from various manufactures whose livelihoods are also connected to this common theme. I sincerely wish everyone the best in their musical endeavors.

Excellent review and congratulations on receiving them first.  Regarding the spikes, I remember reading that the spikes were supposed to be much more substantial, perhaps they cheapened out to keep the price down.  That is a little disappointing to me as I always felt the spikes that came with the Triton Ones were quite flimsy and I was admonished for saying that on the GE forum.  I spoke to my dealer today and nothing yet.  I will be in touch with you over the weekend, and enjoy those babies.  I can't wait to hear my beloved Pink Floyd on mine.

Thank you! In fact I had another poster on the GET forum praising my review.

As to the spikes, I find it interesting that you *read* they were to be more substantial. I do not recall reading this anywhere. I do recall *seeing* the spikes in a video taken at the time of the TR introduction at CES 2017. It was in that portion of the video where the camera was focused on the base that I saw some rather kewl, thick, and substantial spikes. The ones that came with the speaker are not those, unfortunately. As you know, there are after market spikes. Also, in another thread here on the audiogon forum there is some mention of herbies gliders, which I'm considering, after the initial jubilation of new ownership subsides. All in all the spikes provided will do just fine in the interim.

Thanks for your write-up. Much appreciated.

My primary concern is around the fact that you received your Reference speakers on July 10th. And today is July 12th. I understand the excitement, believe me.... 

Looking forward to  hearing more about how the GE Refs are doing in your system as you spend more time with them.

Understood, and you are most welcome. Excellent point regarding the dating and the fact that my ownership is in its infancy. It is for that reason I chose to post the review on my personal webpage. Namely, so I can edit it at will and independent of this and other sites. Besides the fact that I shall correct the (very) few grammatical errors, I will append the the review over time and more than likely clearly denote any addendum starting at the bottom and with a date heading. 
@gdhal

I’m excited about learning more about the Refs and look forward to your ongoing impressions and findings.

The most important aspect of our hobby is our happiness with and connection to the music delivered by our gear and it’s apparent you are well on your way!!!
