French manufacturer, TRIANGLE, is celebrating its 40th Anniversary in 2022 and has introduced an impressive new lineup of loudspeakers to celebrate this important milestone. The TRIANGLE BOREA BR03 BT Active Wireless Loudspeakers caught our attention for the simple reason that they offer so much for under $1,000 USD and having just reviewed the impressive KEF LSX II Active Wireless Loudspeakers which retail for $1,400 USD (not including stands) — we needed to take a deeper dive.

I’m sure there are audiophiles growing weary as we profess our belief that active wireless speakers will (eventually) make traditional high-end systems irrelevant — but it’s hard not to see that becoming reality.

Dynaudio and KEF have already successfully proven that it can be accomplished at the high-end for under $10,000 USD and there is clearly a lot of room in the $1,000 to $1,500 range for products like the TRIANGLE BOREA BR03 BT, KEF LSX II, and the new PSB Alpha IQ.

It really needs to be asked — why can’t a pair of high-end wireless active loudspeakers with multiple connectivity options and a subwoofer output work for 99% of the population?

Consumers want the ability to stream from their smartphone or network player, listen to their turntable, and watch television and movies through the same system.

That doesn’t require a rack filled with components or a huge wiring mess behind their media unit.

Give people a compelling reason to spend $1,000 on a pair of high-end loudspeakers as opposed to buying a cheap plastic soundbar.

Products like the TRIANGLE BOREA BR03 BT accomplish that goal in a rather attractive looking package.

The Skinny

The amplifier of the BOREA Active speaker integrates a MM phono preamplifier, which allows you to connect your turntable directly to the speakers.

In partnership with Pro-Ject, Triangle has also developed a turntable designed to create an elegant and uniform all-in-one package. The turntable will be available in 4 finishes in September 2022.

Equipped with an EFS fabric dome tweeter combined with a 16.5 cm midrange/bass driver from the range, these bookshelf speakers offer a rich and high-performance sound image with a powerful bass controlled by the associated electronics.

The BOREA Active speakers are built to match the quality of the rest of the range and are manufactured from layers of HDF; they also incorporate an innovative DVAS system to absorb the vibrations generated by the movement of the bass drivers.

This important research on the vibratory behavior of the speaker reinforces this notion of neutrality and clarity when listening. They also benefit from TRIANGLE’s latest generation of drivers, an EFS fabric dome tweeter combined and a midrange/bass driver in natural cellulose paper.

A remote control with a range of more than 15 meters regardless of obstacles (walls, furniture, etc.), a power cable and a 3 meter speaker cable to connect the amplified speaker to the passive speaker are provided with the speakers.
