Thanks!

Guess not.

I have the 3D Array XL and it's great. However, my space limitations required a soundbar. If I had been able, I would have gone with separates. Even though the 3D XL is very good, separates are going to give a better sound field. If you have the space, go separates.

GoldenEar Vs Klipsch Reference Premiere

Hi everyone, I'm about two weeks out from buying new speakers for my home theater and I'm leaning towards the Triton Fives and the XXL Center. I currently use Klipsch Reference Premiere speakers and while I do like them for music in my living room they are a little to bright/harsh when I turn up the volume during a movie. I was looking at the new KEF Q series but I am really tempted by the GoldenEars. Any opinions on using the GoldenEars vs Klipsch for home theater or just any other comments anyone wants to make about the speakers that I have chosen?

I Demoed a ton of stuff before I bought the speakers in my signature. B&w, klipsch, KEF, pioneer etc. Go with the goldenear's mentioned, you will not regret it. Nothing really even came close in my experience. They have a very neutral sound, and the tweeters are so crisp it's unreal. If you can listen in person I would highly recommend that.

Just replaced my flagship Polk LSiM setup with T5's upfront, xxl Center and T7's in the rear...awesome detail for HT!! Also run dual FF5's which makes a big difference...tweeters are hugely detailed and xxl Center is crisp and clean...if you watched Hacksaw Ridge when the seargent is ripping the boys up, he sounds like he is in your living room!!!

Thank you for the information. When I make a purchase like this I have to keep them for a while.

Is there really that much of a difference between the LSiM set up (assuming you had the 707/705 for fronts, etc.) and the Tritons?

I had the 707s up front and 705s in the rear and 706 Center...the 707s are better for 2 channel music but for HT the Triton ribbon tweeter in the 4 towers coupled with the xxl Center seem to be more detailed for HT. I can without a doubt say the xxl Center puts the 706 to shame...my preference has moved away from 2 channel music to 4k HT...

They have very different tweeters, so I'd expect them to sound different. Whether that's better is up to the listener. Personally, I don't plan to ever go back to a dome tweeter design in any speaker I purchase.

I have to chime-in here that my first "religious experience" with loudspeakers was with the Heil AMT-1 back in the 70s. Those speakers are long gone but my fond memories remain thus my new HT is gonna get Tritons, though honestly I have yet to audition them.

The folded-ribbon tweeter in the Heils was the most amazing thing I ever heard.

Hi all,

Longtime Sandy Gross fan here, i adore my DefTech 7002 , CLR 2500 and Trinity and have loved the sound they have produced since owning the 7002/2500 since 2007 and the Trinity since 2010 in my condo.. powered by my Parasound A52 and Yammie A5000 with Monster Speaker Z2 cables and audioquest RCA's/HDMI from my Oppo 105D..(using Infinity bookshelf Entra mini's as rears and entra center as rear center) No atmos/dts-x . However ... i have recently thought of upgrading since i am moving to a new house in the next few months ( we are selling our condo and upgrading) haven't picked out the house just yet but in the process of doing that as well...

I told myself if i ever get tired of these DefTech speakers and decide to finally upgrade , it will be the Goldenear speakers.. have heard the 1st generation Triton 2 and the Triton 1 and based on my limited sessions i belIeve that these are the only true upgrades to my def tech's , in fact i think they sound better..on music (did not get a chance to hear them on movies, but assume they are an improvement as well) I don't know what my new room will look like.. but i have an idea of what i want to do to make the upgrade worthwhile... will probably listen again before making the final purchase...

Thinking of going with --- Triton Two Plus (probably my best bang for the buck. want the highest end i can get for the $$)
Triton SuperCenter XXL (one for front and one for rear or XL for rear center(s)
Aon 2 for rears or supersats 3’s?
Aon 2 for another of rear(s) for ATmos/DTS-X , supersats?
Still going to use my DefTech Trinity Sub (not sure if the SuperSUb XXL is an upgrade )
upgrading to the Parasound A51 (my A52's bigger brother)
upgrading to the Parasound 2250 (my 2125's bigger brother) for rears plus a second 2250 if needed for Atmos/DTS-X
upgrading to YAMMIE CX-a5100 Atmos/DTS-X PRE/PRO
Assuming I am going with a larger living space so I can accommodate the Atmos/DTS X

Will let you know what room size I am going with .. enjoy talking with you guys about it and if you have any suggestions I appreciate it.. I am excited about getting a freestanding house and excited about upgrading my equipment…. 😊

Michael P.

(future goldenear owner 😊 )

Sandy,

How do the sub sections of the upcoming Triton Reference towers compare with your SuperSub XXL? As I understand it from reading reviews across the web, the SuperSub XXL is a very capable midsize sub and can dig deep while still being very musical. I am curious how the Reference sub section will stack up to the XXL and whether Reference owners will want to (or feel the need to) add the XXL to their system to get deep visceral bass for movies.

I would also like your thoughts on how you would wire the Reference (or Triton Ones) if you added the SuperSub XXL to your room. Would you run the Triton towers full range with just speaker wire and only run LFE to the SuperSub XXL or would you get a y-splitter and run both the Triton towers and the SuperSub XXL via LFE?

I would also love it if you could share your thoughts on how your SuperSub XXL stacks up to the new sealed SVS SB16 Ultra sub.

Thanks!

Really upset I had a chance to listen to the Triton Refernces today! I now have to figure out how I'm going to obtain them! FML! I mean I absolutely love my Triton 1s which I traded up from the Triton 2s but the reference speakers are just in a different class. I listened to the reference, 1s and 2s today for a good 45 mins and the refernces made me feel like I was at a concert. One of my friends who's a paradigm signature guy said they where unbelievable. Damn damn damn! Gonna have to beg, borrow and maybe steal!

That's why I try to stay from A/V shops, new car dealers, etc. unless I am actually in the market for something new. Discipline!

I know but I'm such a big fan of Goldenear and I was convinced that the gap between the two speakers wouldn't be that great. I'm not exaggerating I was really blown away. I went to Axpona this past year and heard a lot of great speakers and would put my Triton 1s up there with them but the Reference is really a step up. I'm wondering if they will have a new Center channel to go with the Reference.

It is hard to understand how the difference could be quite that great; presumably you paid close attention to things like volume levels (just a small increase in loudness could be a major factor)?

This is the dealer I bought all my goldenear gear and I've listened to a lot of different speakers in his shop including, Bryson, Martin Logan and Paradigm. He had the reference and Triton 2s in one room and the Triton 1s in another. He had the same processor and amps in both rooms. I had him play multiple multiple selections the same songs on all three speakers. At one point I was going between the two rooms listening to the same song in both rooms. He can play the same song in both rooms at the same time. I had him adjust the volume up and down on different selections. Just like there is a difference between the Triton 1s vs Triton 2s there is an equal or larger difference between the Refernce and Triton 1s. I still love my 1s just like I loved my 2s. Just one mans opinion

Thanks for explaining--it seems you've got as good an auditioning dealer as is possible to have.

I have been thinking that I need to get "the best" for my new-and-probably-final HT setup but now I may have to pay $3500 more than I thought!?!?!!!

Agreed! When I purchased my 2s I said it'll be 10 years until I need new speakers. Then came the ones it's like I'm trapped in a loop but seriously I think I can really say that I'll have statement speakers that provide truly remarkable sound

Oops, here's some more. They're next to MartinLogan 11As for comparison. They look like Triton 1s on steroids. Will listen to them next week and offer my thoughts.

It appears one of my Triton 2's radiator/subwoofer is not working any more. I tried unplugging and replugging the power but doesn't seem the work. The tweeter and mid-range still works and the green LED is solidly lit. Anybody know what else I can try?

My other T2 is working perfectly and has no issues but it had it's board replaced last year when the flashing green LED issue started happening.
