The Secret's Out - AVguide breaks the news on the triple threat of new GoldenEar products and technologies being introduced at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show.
Robert Kozel concludes: "The entire system can easily be used to create a multi-purpose theater for superb performance with both music and movies, and the Triton Two Towers can certainly stand on their own as the cornerstone of an excellent two-channel system."
Check out the January 2012 issue of The Absolute Sound magazine, where the GoldenEar Triton Two has been honored as The Absolute Sound's 2011 Affordable Loudspeaker of the Year, saying "Is GoldenEar Technology's $2500/pair Triton 2 Floorstander a great speaker for the money or just plain great regardless of price? The answer is 'both'."
The Golden Ear Triton Two Speakers just won a HomeTheaterReview.com coveted Best of 2011 Award, chosen by their editorial staff as Best Affordable Floorstanding Loudspeaker, saying: "With a track record unlike anybody (even Dr. Bose), with companies like Polk Audio and Definitive Technology – Sandy Gross’ first speaker for his new brand, Golden Ear, was likely to kick ass and take names. And that it did. The Triton Two from GoldenEar Technologies is priced right, comes with a sweet tweeter and a modest footprint. We just think the world of these speakers, as they would be lovable at twice the price."
The TritonCinema Two Home Theater Speaker System wins GREATEST OVERACHIEVER in The Perfect Vision's Editor's Choice Awards for Home Theater Speaker Systems $2500-$4999. “A true benchmark system in terms of performance per dollar".
AV MAX gives the Triton Two their highest rating, 5 stars, in all 5 categories: Aesthetics, Build, Audio, Ease of Use and Value for Money. Saying the Triton Two "... had us believing the entire width of the front wall was covered with speakers ... a soundstage that brought us tears of joy" and "... the Triton Two Towers can instantaneously drown you in an instant wave ... GoldenEar's Triton Two Towers are a pair of loudspeakers that will leave you crying, laughing, and stunned; all at the same time".

In this year's annual Recommended Systems issue of The Absolute Sound (December 2011 Issue) GoldenEar's Triton Two loudspeaker was selected as the loudspeaker of choice for one of their "We Pick the Best" Recommended Systems. This is a very high honor in that out of all the loudspeaker systems available today, only eight speaker systems were chosen for the six different price-range systems. In the summary they say "The Triton Two has an almost electrostatic-like transparency in the mids, a gorgeous fatigue-free treble, and a top-to-bottom seamlessness that makes it easy to forget you are listening to a loudspeaker".
Pick up the December 2011 Issue, on newstands now, and check out all their comments on the Triton Two.
Brent Butterworth of SOUND & VISION MAGAZINE sums it up perfectly when he says "Those who want to taste the magic of the GoldenEar Triton Two, S+V's 2010 Audio Product of the Year, but don't dig tower speakers (i.e., me) will be happy to hear about the new Aon 2 and Aon 3 ...".

Chris Martens - CEDIA 2011: GoldenEar founder Sandy Gross explained the genesis of the Aon design by saying that a colleague had raved to him about the performance of an exotic, $6000/pair of stand-mount monitors. After hearing the monitors, and reflecting on what he had heard, Gross was convinced that the GoldenEar design team, led by GoldenEar co-founder Don Givogue, could create a product that could meet or beat that level of performance, but at a much lower price. The result is the Aon design.
After hearing a variety of pieces of music on the Aon 3s in the GoldenEar booth, we suspect Gross and company are on to something. As it happens, I visited the GoldenEar booth just after hearing a very expensive floorstanding speaker elsewhere at the show, and I felt the Aon 3 was—on the whole—the better speaker.
