One of my friend and ex-HP colleague is selling his system after 25+ years of good service, because it is supposedly too big for his new "maison de campagne"...
And I thought we had designed it to be the most "WAF" friendly system on the Planet!
"Des gouts et des couleurs, on ne discute point"...
So, if any of you dear readers are interested in a pristine Triton passive system at a bargain price, here is your chance!
If I were not so far away, I would buy it myself, as I do not have this system in my collection. Being in Australia would probably cost me more in shipping than the gear itself, although I am tempted!
Anyway, to do justice to the product and help out my friend Philippe, I have posted a review of this wonderful triphonic system as an add-on to a previous post featuring the active version of this magnificent piece of french vintage hifi!
You will find the review written by Patrick Vercher in the now defunct "Revue du Son" here:

Over the years, our bespoke medium driver has been modified and upgraded and as a result, the later versions are more durable than the original ones.
The main difference is in the suspension: originally we had a foam suspension, supposedly more linear in the midrange.
However, we changed later for a inverted rolled rubber, more linear in the bass, and with very little audible difference (if any...) in the midrange.
I have come across recently two pairs equipped with the foam suspension, and the photos speak for themselves...
If you are in possession of such a pair, don't dispair!
Our friends at www.audiovintage.fr have found three potential repairers in Europe.
I am publishing the corresponding links here:

We will have soon some feedback from the owner of a pair who is using this company to repair his. Stay tuned!If you are in France, I would be tempted to use the official Audax repairer, but obviously, I have not try any of them, so you are on your own, I'm afraid!
