by TAS Staff | Dec 12th, 2018 The following is a press release issued by GoldenEar Technology. Baltimore | December 12, 2018 - GoldenEar Technology is pleased to announce the introduction of the new Triton One.R. This extraordinary new reference quality loudspeaker is a smaller, less expensive follow up to the Triton Reference, which has had a remarkable response in the marketplace from both music and hifi enthusiasts as well as the press and reviewers from around the

By Dennis Burger | January 7, 2019 I'm starting to think that GoldenEar Technology may be playing a bit of a long prank on tech journalists. I say that in all jest, of course, but look--the reality is this: the company keeps dropping incredibly high-performance, high-value speakers on the market. Speakers that we in the specialty AV press absolutely slobber over. Speakers on which we hang any and every superlative known to man. And then a few years

Jon Iverson  |  Jan 13, 2018 The sign up above said GoldenEar Technology, but when I walked in it looked like any normal hotel room. No big banners, black cloth draped along the walls or spotlights. And then at the far end I spotted company president Sandy Gross sitting on the couch and a single bookshelf speaker sitting on a stand. That was it. But as soon as I introduced myself, Sandy jumped up and starting talking

by Neil Gader | Jan 22nd, 2018 Terror on the 29th Floor It’s over. Or, is it? First impressions at CES 2018 told me that for all intents and purposes the high end will not be returning to Las Vegas in the foreseeable future. However, my thoroughly unscientific polling of exhibitors revealed a roughly fifty-fifty split in favor of giving it one more go. What gives? It all depends on perceptions. For example, since exhibitors were mostly concentrated

by Chris Martens | Nov 28, 2017 Sandy Gross is widely acknowledged as an audio legend in large part because he has played a central role in launching three major loudspeaker-manufacturing companies: Polk Audio, Definitive Technology, and most recently GoldenEar Technology. As we have noted in the past one common thread connecting these firms involves a commitment to producing sensibly priced loudspeakers that give their owners a substantial taste of authentic high-end sound quality. At GoldenEar,

by TAS Staff | Oct 13th, 2017 GoldenEar Technology Triton Five $1999 Sandy Gross, the proprietor of GoldenEar, may be the Babe Ruth of reasonably priced loudspeakers. With the Triton Five, the gregarious Gross has hit yet another one out of the park. Named after the sea god Triton who could calm or rouse the waves by blowing on his conch, the Triton has a similar quality. It’s a remarkably low-distortion design that belts out Led

Arlen Schweiger | September 26, 2017 Demo rooms can serve many purposes during a CEDIA show. They can highlight new technology, like Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, 4K Ultra HD, 3D, etc. They allow dealers to get some ideas for demo techniques and movie scenes/music selections to use in their own showrooms. They provide ample reason to rest one’s feet for 10-20 minutes and just be like a prospective client taking in the powerful performances, comparing one system’s products

by Mark Henninger | September 14, 2017 When it comes to giving great CEDIA demos, GoldenEar’s track record is unblemished. Year after year, the company puts on one of the best sounding presentations on the show floor at the annual custom integrator-centric convention. This year the company showed its Invisa SPS (Signature Point Source) in-wall speakers ($1,000) handling the front LCR of a 5.2.4 3D immersive audio system. Given that Custom Integration is all about building stuff into homes, it’s no surprise that CEDIA has

by Anthony H. Cordesman | TAS September 2017 issue   I suppose that in some ways it was inevitable that GoldenEar Technology could not rest on its laurels in producing the Triton One - a truly excellent speaker at its price of $5,000 a pair. GoldenEar’s corporate slogan may be “We make the high-end affordable", but almost all of the companies that produce high-end audio products are led by audiophiles. Even those that focus on

by Caleb Denison | Updated July 25, 2017 As I walked out of the GoldenEar Technology suite at CES 2014 three and a half years ago after hearing the company’s Triton One speaker, I thought to myself, “Wow! Those speakers are amazing. Too bad Sandy Gross left almost no room for improvement. What in the world will he do next?” Indeed, the legendary speaker designer and engineer, whose past handiwork lives on to this day through Polk and Definitive
