    Default GoldenEar Technology TritonCinema Two


    "I think the introduction of the GoldenEar speaker line will be like mainlining a pure shot of guarana-and-caffeine-laced energy drink into the jugular vein of the audio industry. The combination of appearance, performance, and price is flat-out spectacular and will set lots of other companies on a chase to close the gap. That kind of competition will be good for everybody.

    One of Sandy Gross’ dreams was to build a true high-end speaker that was actually affordable. Someone needs to pinch the man because his dream just became reality. "

    I've been looking at these for a good few months now. The biggest frustration for me right now is that I can't find any local retailers who carry them, and I never, ever buy without first auditioning. Eventually, I may have to make a road trip to Philadelphia or New York just to find someone who carries them.

    Yours,

    David

    I understand and am the same way myself. From what I have heard from industry professionals, these speakers are nothing short of spectacular and you don't need an external/stand alone subwoofer.

    That's what I've been hearing and reading, too. Many are likening them to the DefTech Mythos STSs, it seems, and actually saying the former somewhat surpass the latter. Having heard STSs, I am impressed by claims like that.

    When 2 of the best in the audio field who have many years of technology experience working with other premiere speaker manufacturers/designers get together this is the end result one would dream to expect.

    I don't doubt any of my professional friends observations. In fact we rely on each other many times for a truly unbiased opinion...

    I just like the design. One thing I enjoy about my Def Tech's is they look different.

    So we can expect them really to be just that good?

    Yes, I am because of the reputation of the audio pros who have told me I MUST listen to them...and they know my audio engineering background as well as my love for spectacular sounding speakers.

    Okay, that's it, then. One way or another, I'm going to get myself an in-person listen to these things. It might take me all summer to find them somewhere, but I'm going to do it.

    Yours,

    Please do, L2W has me curious now. Granted I won't be upgrading speakers for a long while, but it's always nice to have options that are priced so well.

    They've been on my radar too. Very sweet looking towers I must say. They get rave reviews for sure.

    Even their cinema models are highly rated. For example - LINK

    Several systems out the door now and the customer feedback echoes my enthusiasm for Sandy's new speakers. This is killer stuff. Not killer stuff "for the price", just killer stuff.

    Just go listen. If you're looking for a new system or just a pair of towers, it's worth a drive and a hotel room.

    It definitely is. You will be in awe, especially when you realize the low comparative price.

    I understand what you are saying...but I've had to wait so long at Magnolia sometimes to hear something in the listening rooms that I wished I had an appointment

    Could you PM me the contact info of that dealer, please, Disco Batman? Perhaps they could direct me to someone closer to home where I am ...
