    Just had to share this.

    It's not spam (because these suckers are way too expensive for home recording use), but I'm very proud of these, and Trident did a great job in designing the website. Check it out to see what I've been up to the last couple of years:

    Ed Cherney is in L.A., beating the shit out of these right now, even as I type this.

    Yeah. I've seen those mentioned/previewed a couple of places.
    Needless to say, they make my pants tight.

    Very cool Harvey!


    So just out of curiosity...what is the ballpark price range for a pair?


    Oh...looking at the website...is it me, or should those monitors actually be switched left to right?
    Wouldn't you want the highs/mids cylinders on the ends of your stereo image...even if they do rotate for any position?

    In piano gloss black, around $4,000. Around $3,500 in flat black. Final price hasn't been determined.

    It's you. That is how they should be used - with the tweeters and mids inboard. I'll go into why (and why all the other designs are wrong) as soon as I get my morning coffee.

    I would love to hear it!

    While I have my monitors in their default vertical position, there were always the guys that liked them on their sides...and whenever they did that, everyone would always make a point of saying that the tweeters should be on the outside, otherwise the stereo image would crap out (well, you know all those stories Harvey)...
    ...so yeah, I would like to hear a different perspective.

    That said...I don't think I can spring for a pair of the Trident HG3 monitors at this time but compared to a lot of other "high-end" monitors...$3,500-$4000 isn't totally absured...I guess.
    I've been lusting after some of the real higher-end ADAM monitors...but they are a bit crazy-pricey.

    Interesting ideas in those speakers, Harvey. Best of luck with them! And it's nice to finally know what that secret project was that you told us you were working on a year ago or so .

    But I gotta respectfully ask the begging question here: why the $500 difference between gloss black and flat black?

    I'm guessing it takes a lot of work for them to buff the flat black to a glossy shine.




    Just kidding around.
    Maybe it's some particular paint/process to get the piano-gloss finish....???

    I'm sure there's a reason for the difference, and it's not just a different can of spray paint and an extra coat of polyurethane that costs $250 per loudspeaker . But it's just an area of manufacturing for which I'm kinda ignorant, so I am curious as to what's involved.
