    Default Test Report: GoldenEar Technology Triton Two Tower Speakers


    The writer F. Scott Fitzgerald famously said there are no second acts in American lives. But what about third acts? Speaker impresario Sandy Gross is a cofounder of two of the best-known companies in the home theater/audio biz: Polk Audio and Definitive Technology. Ever since Gross and design partner/Def Tech cofounder Don Givogue exited the industry a few years back, we've wondered what they've been up to. Deep- sea fishing? Bird watching? Chess? Turns out the answer is none of the above. Predictably, the pair went back to what they know best: making speakers.

    It's unusual for us to associate the names of specific individuals with the products we cover in Sound+Vision. Gross, however, is not your typical speaker-company president. Rather, he's a dedicated audiophile who likes to have a hand in all aspects of the biz, from design and production to packaging. There are even stories about him getting directly on the phone with customers! That sort of thing is fairly common in the high-end audio arena, but it?s almost unheard of in the affordable-audio arena where Sandy and Don made their mark.

    F. Scott Fitzgerald had his head up his ass when he said that.

    I've been watching this company with great interest since last fall. Hopefully, I'll get the chance to audition the Triton Twos sometime this year.

    I knew those look familiar. If you take my two favorite speaker companies and mate them, a Def Tech with a Martin Logan, yule get a GT!

    OK, GT gots my attention. Let us know D-Train when you get a chance to look at them.

    Hi Barney,

    I'm seriously considering getting a pair for my fronts so I can go 7.3 on my sound system. We'll see ... we'll see ...

    Not yet. That comes much later--when I build a projector room in my basement. And then it likely will be 11.3, not 9.
