Anyone else notice a 10%-15% price increase on a lot, if not all, GoldenEar speakers? Is this from the tariffs? Was just about to buy a 5.1.4 GoldenEar system, but was not expecting such a price increase. Will these eventually go back to the original price if the tariffs are removed?

Haven't noticed until your post prompted me to check. I don't know if this is good or bad, but thinking makes it so. :ohmy:

Yes the price had increased about a month ago. I had bought my setup the same day my dealer was changing the pricing. Luckily they honored the prior.

Yes, my dealer said it was due to the tariffs. It happened October 1, 2019 I believe. He said the prices would likely stay though, but that could be because he wanted me to buy something right away. I sure hope they reduce them if the tariffs are removed.

Unfortunate timing. The tariffs did happen but the October 1, 2019 price increase really was about making sure GoldenEar was selling product at sustainable prices. Other than two products I can recall, the original Triton Two and the Triton Reference, I don't remember GoldenEar raising prices on anything since the beginning in 2010, until this product-wide price adjustment.
