Hello All,

Another happy GoldenEar customer with a question.

In my surround system, the left/right speakers are Triton Sevens, and the center is a SuperSat 60C, which was the best that GoldenEar offered at the time of my purchase.

As I said, i’m Quite happy with my speakers, but I also think about upgrading within the GoldenEar line. For the front soundsage, I think about the Triton Five. But I also wonder if that might not be enough of an upgrade,and find myself thinking about the Two+ or One. However, my primary question is about the center. Given my present left/right speaker (Triton Seven), what would you suggest as the most appropriate SuperCenter model? What about with the Triton Five?

Thanks.

Hi Duff_Da and welcome here!!!!!
Great idea to stay within the GEt range, that is by far your best bet.
We all have our opinions, and so here are mine.
I would get the BEST speakers you can afford, both for the center channel and for the front L and R.
I just have the SC X, as it is the largest center speaker that will fit my space. and I LOVE it. You can go bigger and I am sure those centers are better, but the X is swell.
I upgraded my T 2s to the TOnes and have never looked back!!!! You will have these speakers and be able to enjoy them for years and years, why not get the best you can?
Just my opinion.
Have fun upgrading, happy listening,
God Bless,
Wayne

Hi Duf_Da

Interesting moniker!

I don't know how best to answer those questions, but, first, ANY Supercenter will match up tonally well with ANY Triton tower. So you can't go wrong with a choice.

But if you're thinking into the future about upgrading the 7's to 2+s or 1's, then I'd recommend going "up the line". The XXL has the same balanced crossover technology and clarity as the 2+'s and 1's, and would sound great with the 7's you have now in the meantime. Getting the best your budget allows will give you years of listening pleasure.

Just my opinion.

Hi Duf_Da,

I started my Golden Ear adventure with SuperSat 3s as Fronts. I moved up to Sevens as fronts and enjoyed them in conjunction with a Paradigm DSP 3400 Sub for deeper bass.

Several years ago, I purchased a pair of Ones and reconfigured my set up so that I could still use my Sevens and my SuperSat 3s in an "all Golden Ear" audio-only configuration. There are plenty of previous posts on this site from me describing my various configuration experiments.

My advice would be for you to upgrade your Fronts to either Ones or References and use your Sevens as Surround speakers. I cannot offer advice about GE Center speakers because I use a totally different configuration for my multi-channel AV listening with all speakers other than GE (older speakers I had prior to my GE purchases). I believe you will ultimately be happier with either Ones or References, as opposed to Fives, Threes or Twos.

By the way, there are dealers out there who will work with you for extended "same as cash" financing to help you purchase the more expensive Ones or References (check out Audio Advice on the Web, for example) and the speakers will be delivered directly to your home via motor freight.

Happy Listening,

Art
