GoldenEar Technology Debuts New Bookshelf Reference X at CEDIA Expo


GoldenEar has announced that it will be giving demos of its new Bookshelf Reference X (BRX) speaker at this week's CEDIA Expo in Denver, in Sound Room 2. The new BRX, which is effectively a passive version of the company's highly-lauded DA 3 powered wireless speaker, delivers rated frequency response of 40Hz to 35kHz, 90Hz efficiency, and is designed to handle up to 250 watts per channel. Pricing is set at $699 each, and the speaker is expected to ship in Q1 2020.

Read on for full details from the press release:

GoldenEar Technology is pleased to announce the introduction of a new ultra-high-performance compact bookshelf/stand-mount loudspeaker, the BRX, at the 2019 CEDIA EXPO. The goal of the BRX development project was to create a gorgeous, luxuriously finished, ultra-compact loudspeaker which would incorporate the latest advanced technology developed for GoldenEar's Triton Reference, Reference One.R and DA 3, in order to achieve truly superb sonic performance typical of  larger, much more expensive units.

The BRX is basically a passive version of the groundbreaking DA 3 powered wireless loudspeaker. It incorporates a 6" cast-basket bass/midrange driver with a focused-field magnet structure. The cone is formed with a proprietary curve, from a special formulation of polypropylene, which combines superior internal damping with a high speed of wave transmission through the cone (Young's Modulus).

This is basically the same driver used in the award-winning Triton Reference tower. The tweeter is the Reference High-Gauss High-Velocity Folded Ribbon, the same used in both the Triton Reference and Triton One.R as well as the DA 3 and SPS. The two drivers are perfectly blended with a unique "balanced crossover" with a floating configuration that incorporates high quality film capacitors. New internal speaker wire, which has a unique twist as in the Triton Reference, is utilized. A pair of inertially balanced 6.5" planar infrasonic radiators located on either side of the cabinet, acoustically load the active 6" driver as well as couple the internal bass energy to the room for tight, quick, extended bass response. The beautifully styled 12"H x 8"W x 12.25" D cabinet is luxuriously finished in hand-rubbed piano black lacquer.

The BRX has been engineered to deliver superior reference level performance for both two channel as well as home theater systems of the highest quality, with extraordinary three-dimensional imaging and high-resolution clarity. It has been voiced to match the Reference towers, with a tremendous sense of you-are-there lifelike immediacy. Overall frequency response is 40-35 kHz, efficiency is 90 dB and recommended associated amplification is 10-250 watts/channel. Projected US retail price is $699 each and delivery is expected in the first quarter of 2020.
