The New Reference for Ceiling Mounted LCR Speakers with GoldenEar
GoldenEar Technology has released its new reference Invisa HTR 8000 ceiling-mounted L/C/R speaker.
The California-based manufacturer says its new release is a “no-holds-barred ceiling-mounted L/C/R speaker that shares essential DNA with our critically acclaimed Triton Reference Towers”. The HTR 8000 is a perfect choice for side- or rear-surround speakers in 5.1-channel or 7.1-channel systems and makes an ideal height-channel speaker for Dolby Atmos/DTS:X systems.
The HTR 8000 features a magnetically attached micro-perforated grille that covers all mounting hardware, allowing the speaker to blend into most any environment seamlessly. GoldenEar's FocusField Technology uses drivers mounted at precisely calculated angles to create palpable, well-focused images across an expansive soundstage. The overall result, it says, “is a large, open presentation with precise three-dimensional imaging that doesn't just come from the ceiling but convincingly fills the entire room with realistic sound.”
The driver complement consists of GoldenEar's Reference High-Velocity Folded Ribbon (HVFRTM) tweeter with an 8” high-definition, cast-basket bass/midrange driver. In addition, it employs a highly refined crossover network with a high-frequency equalisation switch, assuring
well-balanced sound in virtually any room.
Specifications are stated as 13-3/16” Diameter x 5-15/16” Depth. Cut-Out Dimensions: 11-5/8”. Sensitivity: 92dB. Nominal Impedance: 4Ω (Compatible with 8Ω). Power recommendation is 10 – 300 Watt/channel.
The GoldenEar Invisa HTR 8000 sells in Australia for $1,799 RRP each and are available now.
