Well, CES 2017 is only a few months away. Moderator Dude has hinted that this event will likely include some new product announcements and demos from GET. What would be on your wishlist for the big reveals?

1. A SuperSub XL- 10" version of the SuperSub?
2. In wall, multi-driver speakers with balanced crossover and bass radiators?
3. Powered near field monitors or Bluetooth/wireless speakers?
4. Headphones?
5. Balanced crossovers for the first gen passive speakers like the Aons and SuperCenters?
6. Upfiring Atmos speakers?
7. A Triton "0"; new top of the line powered Triton tower with the 6" mid range drivers and even more powerful subs?
8. Speaker accessories to give existing speakers a facelift: different colored socks and top/base plates, outrigger feet, etc.?
9. In-wall/ceiling subwoofer?

Let the speculation and market research begin...!

Cheers,

T Cobe

HMMM. It seemed for awhile I was getting a "you can't reply to this topic" message.. not now.

T Cobe, your list was so inclusive and thorough, I couldn't add anything to it. Great summary of wish list topics!!!

Two in particular on your list strike a chord with me: headphones, and wireless speaker options.

As I've mentioned before on other threads, I'd LOVE to have GEt headphones to bring the "GEt sound" with me wherever I go.

And wireless speakers would make the logistics of speaker placement much easier, even if it were just for subs. I have a wireless sub with a Harmon Kardon soundbar (purchased before I discovered GEt), and I can move the sub wherever I want. Often times, planning a speaker layout in an existing room can be as much about "how can I get speaker/LFE wire to that location and how much time effort and money will it take", as about ideal theoretical location.

A Triton 0? Oh, my! I'd have to fight the urge to go audition something like that! :P

Good job, as usual, T Cobe!

I'll go for a Triton 0 with whatever upgrades GET decides. I have significant trust in Sandy and his design team that if they were to make an improvement, it would be commensurate with whatever the price increase would be.

That said, here is some valuable feedback that I'll ask the moderator to pass along to the appropriate channels at GET.

If there is a Triton 0 and its cost per pair is less than $7,500 and I can trade in my perfect and less than 1 year old Triton 1's for no less than $4,000 and the physical appearance is identical albeit a "larger" (height, depth, footprint, etc.) version I will pre-order and pay now, completely forgoing any need to demo.

I'm serious. Now how is that for brand loyalty :)

YES!!

2. In wall, multi-driver speakers with balanced crossover and bass radiators?

I'd buy these in a heart beat. Especially something to rival triton 5 or 7 level of sound quality. Maybe an in-wall with a cabinet that fits inside the studs?
I was concerned in lack of MPX reviews and went with Supersat 50s. I'd likely trade up for an amazing in wall setup.

My dream GE speakers are Triton 1W speakers in/on wall mounted in a 14 1/2 inch box 3' - 4' tall and up to 6" deep (4" in wall and 2" exterior of the wall with a newer larger Supersat 100C to complement it on wall.

This would be a great basis for a 7.2.4 system (the 2 subs are in the wall L/R speakers).
