I was introduced to audiophilia by my friend Gary Gustavsen. Although I’d known Gary since I was 13, I didn’t discover his passion for music until that day in high school physics lab when I blurted out an obscure
line from the Doors’ “The Soft Parade,” and Gary bounced back immediately with the next line. It turns out I shared my friend’s passions for the Doors and Frank Zappa, but not for Mahler. Before long, Gary was dragging me to every audio store in our area to listen to potential speakers for his first high-end audio system. At the beginning of each trip he’d say, “Right now I’m partial to the Rectilinear 3s.” Although I heard him say that many times, I never actually got to hear a pair of Rectilinear 3s.
Back then, in the early 1970s, the stores in our area pushed either Dahlquist DQ-10s or Bose 901s. My epiphany came when Long Island’s Audio Breakthroughs announced
the new Dahlquist DQ-1W subwoofer to partner with their DQ-10s. Gary and I attended a demo at the store, and I was smitten by the coherent, open, uncolored sound of the DQ-10s with DQ-1W, particularly the way the speakers articulated transients in the midrange. Then I felt a tap on my shoulder, and some guy handed me a crude little metal box. “We’re coming out with this soon, which will let you drive the new subwoofer with its own separate amplifier,” he said. The metal box was the only prototype of the DQLP-1 crossover, designed by Carl Marchisotto. The guy who’d tapped me on the shoulder was Saul Marantz.

In summary Darryl says that,"For music, the Triton Sevens provide rock-solid high-end performance" and finally "The Triton Seven System is absolutely magical". And in terms of minuses, Darryl had to dig hard to come up with one, "You'll need to find a new home for your current speakers".
