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 North America for $999 each and are available now.

applause awards

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.
