    "Incredible Value" Ultimate High-Performance Bookshelf Speaker

    The BRX Reference X Bookshelf Speaker from GoldenEar Technology incorporates a 6" cast-basket bass/midrange driver, basically the same driver used in the Triton Reference. It also features a Reference High-Velocity Folded Ribbon AMT Tweeter. The two drivers are perfectly blended with a unique "balanced crossover."

    A pair of inertially balanced 6.5" planar infrasonic radiators are located on either side of the cabinet for tight, quick, powerful bass response. The beautifully styled cabinet is luxuriously finished in hand-rubbed piano black lacquer. The BRX delivers superior reference level performance for both two channel as well as home theater systems.

    "Made a Big Impressive Splash"

    "The tiny GoldenEar has made a big... impressive splash. Auditioned on a wide variety of program material, the BRX displayed a clean and open top-end, an uncolored midrange with solid imaging and bass response was more than comfortably deep," reports Tom Norton in his Sound & Vision review

    "An incredible value...bass was solid and impactful...when fired up, these new speakers put out a sound that was dramatically opposite to their small size with a huge enveloping soundfield that put a big smile on my face," notes Carlo Lo Raso, Secrets of Home Theater & High Fidelity.

    "Listening to the sonic excellence of the BRX... it is hard to imagine that a bookshelf speaker can sound this good," writes Maureen Jenson, Technology Insider, praising the BRX's "airy and detailed, solid bass and excellent imaging."

    Ultra-High-Performance with Flagship Technology

    The BRX is the ultimate high-performance compact bookshelf/stand-mount loudspeaker. 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 and Reference One.R speakers in order to achieve truly superb sonic performance typical of larger, much more expensive units.

    Drivers Derived from Triton Reference Speakers

    For extraordinary sonic performance, the BRX 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 same Reference High-Gauss High-Velocity Folded Ribbon used in both the Triton Reference and Triton One.R as well as the 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.

    Three-Dimensional Imaging and High-Resolution Clarity

    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.

    The beautifully styled 12"H x 8"W x 12.25"D cabinet is luxuriously finished in hand-rubbed piano black lacquer.
