    "I Just Fell in Love with This One"

    The T66 is the first model in GoldenEar's new T Series. While it boasts several significant refinements of the company's time-tested design concepts, the T66 is undeniably a GoldenEar loudspeaker, placing beautiful sound and music before all else.

    The T66 honors the critically acclaimed Triton Series, sharing a similarly tall, slender profile, built-in DSP-controlled subwoofer amplification, and a driver complement comprising GoldenEar's High-Velocity Folded Ribbon AMT tweeter, cast-basket mid/bass units, quadratic planar radiators, and long-throw powered sub-bass section.

    Steve Guttenberg, the Audiophiliac, named the GoldenEar T66 one of the Best Audiophile Loudspeakers of 2023 in a YouTube video. He marvels over the T66's combination of slender, elegant appearance and powerful, dynamically alive sound. "Yeah, I just fell in love with this one," he said.

    Important Cosmetic and Sonic Refinements

    Several important cosmetic and sonic refinements distinguish the new T66 from previous GoldenEar speakers. These include a dramatically augmented crossover design, high-quality internal wiring, a new cast-aluminum base and metal grille, and, in addition to GoldenEar's Gloss Black cabinet finish, a vibrant Santa Barbara Red.

    High-Definition Mid/Bass Drivers

    Cast-basket mid/bass drivers feature an improved yoke assembly to minimize distortion. The drivers also employ Multi-Vaned Phase Plugs, improving the ability to produce exceptional off-axis response for a cinematic soundstage and immersive listening experience.

    Reference AMT Tweeter

    A powerful magnet and motor assembly, along with many other internal details, make this folded-planar-magnetic tweeter clean, clear, and very efficient. Critically finessed wool felt on the mounting plate and elsewhere minimizes diffraction and bounce distortions.

    Quadratic Planar Back-Wave-Driven Radiators

    Quadratic Planar Back-Wave-Driven Radiators acoustically coupled to the subwoofers deliver extended low-frequency response. The results are improved low-frequency impact, and minimal distortion for surprisingly deep, well-controlled, room-filling bass.

    Long-Throw Quadratic Subwoofer Drivers

    The built-in powered subwoofer Built-in Powered Subwoofer boasts a 1000-watt peak / 500-watt RMS, DSP-Controlled power amplifier and two 5" by 9" Quadratic Subwoofer Drivers. The optimized subwoofer arrangement (one high and one low on the cabinet) produces better coupling of sub drivers to the passive radiators for approximately 1dB additional output.

    Sophisticated Crossover and Internal Wiring

    GoldenEar's most sophisticated crossover ensures flat, +9-octave frequency response. Bypass-caps subjected to AudioQuest's proprietary PMO (Permanent Molecular Optimization) process bring unprecedented clarity.

    The T66 is internally wired with signal-preserving AudioQuest Perfect-Surface Copper+. The wire is also direction-controlled and employs a carbon layer for maximizing RF-Noise Dissipation.

    Elegant Cabinet with Sturdy Base and Feet

    Designed for performance and beauty, the T66's tall, slender cabinet contributes to the speaker's holographic imaging and is proportionately the strongest cabinet GoldenEar has ever made.

    The sturdy, adjustable cast-aluminum base features aluminum feet to accommodate tile or wood floors. Optional spikes thread into the bottom of the feet to minimize energy loss and further optimize sonic performance.

    High-Quality Binding Posts — Now Bi-wireable

    Two pairs of binding posts accommodate bi-wiring and feature improved materials to minimize distortion. Includes AudioQuest's Direct-Gold Plated Bare Naked Jumpers.
