Could these speakers be possible for mastering?

GoldenEar Triton Three Tower Loudspeaker Preview — Reviews and News from Audioholics

Pros:
I can afford them
Ribbon tweeters
Right height to tweeters
Fit my room (almost)
Includes dedicated sub amp

Cons:
Subwoofer might be placed too high for best response in my room
Freestanding might not be best option
Made in China drivers, unsure of matching

These are the best deal I have found yet for my setup, which works with dual subs on the floor and drivers 42-50" up. I would be interested in other similar options, with or without integrated subs.

I'm not sure if ribbon tweeters are a "pro/plus". I have ribbon tweeters too (Raal) and they have a great and unbelievably detailed sound but a very narrow vertical sweet spot. You have to get used to that - just stand up and everything sounds completely different... this can be confusing.

Well, a bigger plus is a 4 driver cabinet with a nice price tag. I save money with one amp versus crossovers and two or three amps.

Frequency Response is listed as 20 Hz- 35 kHz but no limits were given on that spec so you’re guess is as good as ours.
This alone would put me off

Could anyone recommend a similar cabinet? I like the PSI A215-m but they might be too expensive, and I would rather have a sealed cab.
