Triangle Borea BRA1 Surround Effect Speakers Available Now
Triangle adds the Borea BRA1 surround effect speakers that can be used as upward-firing Atmos speaker-toppers or wall-mounted for directional audio placement. Triangle's BRA1 surround speakers join the French firm's range of keenly priced and versatile Borea range.
Like its stand-mounted, centre-channel, and floorstanding kin, the BRA1 uses the same technologies derived from the brand's Esprit EZ range, including an EFS fabric dome tweeter combined with a 16cm natural cellulose paper membrane driver. This is all wrapped in a smart MDF cabinet fronted by magnetic mesh grilles. This helps ensure a cohesive and consistent look and sound when using multiple speakers in your AV system.
The versatility of the 8.1- x 7.1- x 11.8-inch BRA1 speakers is supported by an adjustable crossover enabling you to optimise it according to how you're using the speakers. There are two types of crossovers to choose from - a linear one for direct dispersion of horizontal effects and an upward crossover to compensate for the losses associated with indirect dispersion of vertical 3D effects. The frequency range is quoted as being 90 Hz - 22 kHz.
Furthermore, the Borea BRA1's 89dB sensitivity has them able to help create a Home Theatre set-up ranging from 3.1.2 to a classic 5.1.2 set-up right up to the ultimate 9.2.4 set-up in line with professional cinemas.
The BRA1 can be placed on the Borea BR03, BR07, BR08 and BR09 speakers and used as an upward-firing height channel speaker. Alternatively, using the dedicated mounting system, affix them high on the walls for directional surround effects.
The BOREA BRA1 speakers are available in Australia now in black, white, and walnut finishes with a retail price of $900 per pair.

Each time StereoNET reviews a product, it is considered for an Applause Award. Winning one marks it out as a design of great quality and distinction – a special product in its class, on the grounds of either performance, value for money, or usually both.
Applause Awards are personally issued by StereoNET’s global Editor-in-Chief, David Price – who has over three decades of experience reviewing hi-fi products at the highest level – after consulting with our senior editorial team. They are not automatically given with all reviews, nor can manufacturers purchase them.
The StereoNET editorial team includes some of the world’s most experienced and respected hi-fi journalists with a vast wealth of knowledge. Some have edited popular English language hi-fi magazines, and others have been senior contributors to famous audio journals stretching back to the late 1970s. And we also employ professional IT and home theatre specialists who work at the cutting edge of today’s technology.
We believe that no other online hi-fi and home cinema resource offers such expert knowledge, so when StereoNET gives an Applause Award, it is a trustworthy hallmark of quality. Receiving such an award is the prerequisite to becoming eligible for our annual Product of the Year awards, awarded only to the finest designs in their respective categories. Buyers of hi-fi, home cinema, and headphones can be sure that a StereoNET Applause Award winner is worthy of your most serious attention.
