French company, Triangle celebrated its 30th anniversary with some limited edition speaker designs, including the Comète Anniversary pair.
This special version – only 500 sets were made – includes a new horn-loaded tweeter, plus a modified crossover, and the use of high-end wires between connectors and crossover.
The speakers also sported a new logo, their limited-edition number and the signature of Triangle President, Marc Le Bihan.
From Stereophile Recommended Components issue: Triangle 30th Anniversary Comète: $1599/pair (stands necessary)
Developed to celebrate Triangle's 30th anniversary in 2010, the limited-edition Comète is a simple two-way, bass-reflex design with two front-firing ports. Like the speakers in Triangle's flagship Magellan series, the Comète 30th Anniversary is finished in a beautiful piano-black lacquer and includes Triangle's titanium-dome TZ2500 tweeter. The Comète retained the speed, resolution, and immediacy of other Triangle speakers, while adding a more refined and relaxed upper midrange and treble. Partnered with ST's 3.5Wpc Sun Audio SV-2A3 tube amp, the Comète exhibited outstanding dynamics and superb tonality. "It's a great speaker. Period," said Sam. "Hurry up and buy a pair before they"re gone." (Vol.34 No.2)
