Introduction to the GoldenEar Technology TritonCinema Two Home Theater Speaker System

While I was at CES 2011 last January, I had the opportunity to listen to a speaker demonstration from a company called GoldenEar Technology. The man doing the demonstration was none other than Sandy Gross, the co-founder of Polk Audio back in 1972 and Definitive Technology with Don Givogue in 1990. GoldenEar Technology is the next venture for Don and Sandy and their goal is to create outstanding speakers at an attainable price. Sandy demonstrated the new GoldenEar Triton Two Tower speakers which contain an innovative tweeter technology based on a folded ribbon design instead of a traditional aluminum dome tweeter.

I sat back and listened as Sandy played some of his favorite demo tracks on the Triton Towers. While the environment in a hotel suite is not optimal for a speaker demo, I remember how nice it was to escape from the noise of the show and just listen to some great music. I recall the Triton Towers sounding wonderful with a large and detailed soundstage. I immediately asked Sandy about getting a sample for review and, after many months of waiting, a pair of Triton Two Towers arrived at my house along with a SuperSat 50C center channel speaker and a pair of SuperSat 3 surround speakers. GoldenEar sells the complete set of five speakers as a home theater speaker system called the TritonCinema Two System which I'll be covering in this review.
