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."
"Golden Wonders" SuperCinema 3 System wins Home Cinema Choice Best Buy Award. Reviewer Ed Selley writes "This is a system that can reproduce a soundstage dripping with convincing detail and then just as convincingly reproduce the sound of it being blown to matchsticks... This is a system that can legitimately claim to offer something different to the competition. The satellites make full use of their nifty drivers while the ForceField 3 is the nuclear option in a field of conventional weapons."
Another absolutely phenomenal review on the Aon 3, this time from Tone Magazine, a very well respected high-end web-based publication. The review was written by their chief honcho, Jeff Dorgay, who was so impressed when he heard the Aons at the CES demo that he wanted to review them himself. He gave them a full workout on all kinds of program material and, of course, his conclusion that, "the amount of music that these speakers reveal is nothing short of a miracle" really says it all.

Home Theater Magazine's Darryl Wilkinson raves: "When it comes to soundbars, awesome just got redefined!". And wow, did he like it on stereo music playback, saying, "Remarkably we spent (four hours) listening to two-channel music playing through a flippin' soundbar! The width and openness of the soundstage was absolutely incredible, stretching farther across the front of the room than what some freestanding speakers can produce. All with imaging that was Gibralter-stable rock solid...I'd call it simply spectacular."
AVForums (UK) writes: "With the SuperCinema 3 sub/sat system, GoldenEar Technology are to be congratulated for delivering a small, lifestyle speaker system that is able to deliver a sound that far exceeds its physical size."
Many of you have visited me with my various companies at trade shows over the years and most have commented on my selection of demo material. So maybe after all these years it's time to describe those tracks that are my all-time favorites - and you'll probably hear me play again and again because they're so good. But first I want to point out that I have always selected material that allows me to suspend disbelief when listening. What I mean is, I want to sit down to listen and in moments forget I'm listening to a stereo system and be transported to the performance or control room of the studio. Here are some of my favorites...
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.
