"I am confident that most listeners in the market for a fairly compact speaker and powerful sub will love them, and they might even turn heads among those who want a bigger speaker and bigger sub." writes Mark Fleischman in his outstanding review of the Aon 2 / ForceField 5 home theater system in the May 2013 Issue of Home Theater Magazine, where both models received TOP PICKS Awards!
Dennis Burger, in his rave review of the GoldenEar SuperCinema 3D Array Soundbar in Technology Tell Magazine says, it "meets or beats the performance of all-too-many standalone tower speakers I've auditioned".
The GoldenEar Triton Two is an Editors' Choice winner from The Absolute Sound Magazine, saying "The Triton Two handles high frequencies via a superb Heil-type tweeter, the all-important middle frequencies via dual ultra-wide-bandwidth midrange drivers, and the low end with a sophisticated 1200-watt DSP-controlled subwoofer. Together these elements give you a slender. full-range floorstander that sounds astonishingly refined, and offers robust dynamics and spectacular 3D imaging".

Aon 3 receives China's New-Audiophile Magazine 2012 Product of the Year!
Hi Fi Choice's Jason Kennedy, one of England's most critical reviewers, concludes his review of the Aon 3 bookshelf speakers in the February 2013 Issue of HiFi Choice with "... this unusual standmount is hugely entertaining, revealing and excellent value for the money" and gives them the coveted HiFi Choice Recommended Award!
He raves about the tweeter, "whose finesse at high frequencies brings great smoothness to the treble" and notes, "you start to appreciate just how coarse many domes can be by comparison". He also loves "... the Aon 3s exceptional imaging capabilities" and, "the way that sound creates depth and space is made very clear and in an entirely natural sounding fashion ... I began to enjoy the texture it reveals across the band, something that gives depth to voices that is very enticing". Pick up the issue today to read the full review!
"If you listen to music most, do yourself a favor and downsize your home theater – and upgrade your listening experience – with a pair of GoldenEar's Aon 3 stereo speakers." Says Men's Journal Magazine's Michael Gowan.
GoldenEar wins TWO Home Theater Magazine 2012 Top Picks of the Year! The Triton Three wins in the Speakers category and the 3D Array wins in the Soundbar category, saying: "This kind of transparency and imaging is just hard to come by at any cost, but with its attractive $999 price tag, the Triton Three easily stood out as one of our Top Picks of the Year among speakers." and "GoldenEar tapped into some recent Princeton University research on 3D audio to create the SuperCinema 3D Array, which uses crosstalk cancellation technology to project an exceptionally wide and deep soundstage. Coupled with the company’s superb-sounding folded-motion tweeter, it’s a staggering combo that performed equally well on movies and music."
GoldenEar's 3D Array Soundbar wins Sound & Vision 2012 Editor's Choice Award, saying "it was the system’s ability to switch easily between the worlds of movies and music that clinched the deal, leaving (the reviewer) to wonder if he should 'even bother using separate tower speakers' any longer." In the January 2013 Issue.
Wired Magazine, the world's leading tech enthusiast magazine, tells their readers to "Buy it Now", the SuperCinema 3D Array System is "A New Gold Standard in Soundbar Systems ... an engineering triumph and, even more importantly, one of those rare products that turns an entire category on its head ... an unconditional steal when compare to other soundbar systems ... I much preferred it to any faux DSP implementations commonly used by other sound bars."
Reviewing the bigger brother to the recently reviewed SuperCinema 3 system, Russell Williams writes: "To encapsulate the SuperCinema 50 in a phrase - it offers scale and refinement, in a measure equal to excitement. It polishes less than perfect source material and has a natural transparency that lets reference material shine."
