Bookshelf Speakers: BRX and Aon Series Ultra-High-Performance Compact Bookshelf Monitors


Bookshelf Speakers - BRX speaker

The BRX, Aon 2 and 3 bookshelf speakers are exceptionally compact, ultra-high-performance speakers that were originally developed for use as nearfield monitors in professional mixing applications. The design goal was to produce modestly-sized shelf or stand-mountable bookshelf speakers that would achieve accurate high-definition sonic reproduction, with superb three-dimensional imaging, comparable to that achieved by GoldenEar’s award-winning Triton Towers. The new BRX was specifically developed incorporating technology developed for the Triton Reference in order to achieve reference level performance. Although they don’t have quite the awe-inspiring bass of the floor-standing Tritons, great care has been taken, and extensive technology has been incorporated, to ensure that the BRX and Aons can deliver a remarkably satisfying full range listening experience without the need for a separate subwoofer.

Both the BRX and Aon models incorporate GoldenEar-designed cast-basket bass/midrange drivers with technology derived from the midrange units developed for the Tritons. The BRX driver is actually almost exactly the same as the 6" driver used in the Triton Reference. In addition, they all use extraordinary and costly High Velocity Folded Ribbon (HVFR™) high frequency radiators. And the BRX uses the same tweeter developed for the Triton Reference. Lastly, each BRX and Aon model utilizes two side-mounted planar low-frequency radiators in an inertially balanced configuration in order to properly load the bass/midrange drivers for an open, box-less midrange, while also contributing to their’ remarkably extended bass for such small enclosures.



High End Bookshelf Speakers BRX

Bookshelf Speakers- BRX (Bookshelf Reference X)

The BRX incorporates a 6” cast-basket bass/midrange driver, basically the same driver used in the Triton Reference . The tweeter is the Reference High-Gauss High-Velocity Folded Ribbon. 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 of the highest quality, with extraordinary three-dimensional imaging and high-resolution clarity.
