"The GoldenEar Technology SuperCinema 3D Array soundbar ($999) was a real surprise. I was enjoying the music in this room without realizing I was listening to a sound bar." writes The Stereo Times' Don Shaulis in his CES 2013 Show Report.
Chris Martens / The Perfect Vision / CEDIA 2012: Earlier this year, GoldenEar’s founder Sandy Gross gave high-end audio-minded enthusiasts a preview of an upcoming product, which—as of CEDIA—is now ready for production: the SuperCinema 3D Array ($999). Here again we have a product that seems at first to be yet another soundbar, but just one listen will convince most listeners that there is something markedly different and better about this product—something that sets it far apart from its competition. That elusive “something” is real live, no-jive audiophile-grade (and I do not use that term loosely) sound quality.

Adrienne Maxwell / CEDIA 2012 / HomeTheaterReview "We loved GoldenEar's demo of the SuperCinema 3D Array soundbar ($999) back at CES, and we loved it again at CEDIA. This L/C/R bar uses six of GoldenEar's cast-basket bass/midrange drivers and three High-Velocity Folded Ribbon tweeters, with interaural crosstalk cancellation technology to help counteract the drivers' proximity to each other. It's a passive soundbar, which means you need to mate it with an external amplifier/receiver. I personally prefer the more natural sound of passive soundbars. For the complete multi-channel experience, you can add surrounds and a ForceField sub from GoldenEar's line."
Robert Kozel / CEDIA 2012 / Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity "I stopped by GoldenEar Technology to listen to the final product version of the SuperCinema 3D Array. The SuperCinema 3D Array uses three high velocity folded-ribbon tweeters and six midrange drivers to create the sound of left, center, and right channel speakers all from one speaker. The demonstration of the SuperCinema 3D Array created an engaging soundstage with beautiful imaging and clarity. Pair the array with a GoldenEar ForceField subwoofer and a pair of SuperSat surround-speakers, and you can easily create an impressive home theater without the need for floor-standing speakers."
Chris Heinonen / Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity "The GoldenEar Aon 2 bookshelf was amazing for $800/pr, with great detail and imaging, and such astonishing performance I told Sandy Gross I wanted to buy a pair for myself."
Piero Gabucci / September 4, 2012 / Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity."I simply can’t say enough about GoldenEar and how impressively they’ve made a mark on the audio scene. The demo with the final version of the SuperCinema 3D Array 3-channel soundbar left me with the impression of the full-ranged Triton Series. Music and dialogue sounded natural as we were treated to a wide soundstage in both stereo and movie playback. The three pairs each of the High Velocity Folded Ribbon (HVFR) high-frequency radiators along with the 4 ½” woofers image perfectly." (http://www.hometheaterhifi.com/)
Home Theater Magazine's June 2012 Issue mentions the upcoming GoldenEar SuperCinema 3D Array Soundbar in their Coming Attractions article saying: "Secret Sauce: The 3D Array drivers eliminate crosstalk between the left and right channels that has been shown by research to hinder perception of 3D image cues that are present in recordings, but are 'dramatically corrupted in typical soundbar playback' due to the proximity of the (left and right channel) drivers". The SuperCinema 3D Array should be in dealers' showrooms by late this summer.
Brent Butterworth writes, in the recent Sound & Vision Tech Trends 2012 article Soundbars Raise the Bar: "Probably the most exciting soundbar demo I heard was of the new GoldenEar Technology SuperCinema 3D Array. So confident was GoldenEar’s Sandy Gross of the bar’s sound quality that he demo’d it playing stereo music instead of 5.1 — and it delivered smooth sound and a big soundstage. The $999 bar uses six 4.5-inch midrange/ woofers, three tweeters that are slightly smaller versions of the company’s acclaimed HVFR tweeter, and crosstalk cancelation circuitry that helps the bar sound much broader than its 48-inch span."
