Goldenear Bookshelf Reference X
The Goldenear BRX is a high-performance audiophile loudspeaker at a very realistic price!
The Goldenear Bookshelf Reference X has been engineered to deliver superior reference level performance for both two channel as well as home theatre 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
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.
