Mark Seaton from Seaton Sound played a DVD at Axpona in Chicago. The DVD was The Art of Flight and the audio and video are simply amazing. I ordered from Amazon during the show! It was sitting in my collection until i picked up my Triton Ones and finally had a chance to watch it last night. Between my Trition Ones and my dual Seatons I witnessed magic.

I highly recommend the Art of Flight!

Did you get the Bluray or the DVD cause the picture and sound on the Bluray are stunning.
Hope you like bass cause it will shake your house off the foundation.
And the scenery where they filmed is unbelievable.

Blu Ray only! I rarely purchase a standard DVD unless it's for my two year old to watch in the truck. The visuals are ridiculous. I am going to lock myself in the basement tomorrow and watch a couple of movies. I have not tweaked my Ones at all. I am going to wait until i break them in some more.

Just checking in to see if those that have gotten the Triton One's have any more info to share about their experience so far? And some pictures of the unboxing of them as well.

Yeah I read that last week, man I would have never accepted those boxes in that condition. They one nice thing about my Paradigms is they are dropped shipped straight from manufacturer via freight to the dealer, no UPS or Fedex involved.

Just got done auditioning a pair of Triton 1s. Even though the setting wasn't ideal (what showroom is?), I was extremely impressed. The imaging was, to me, astonishing. With very little tweaking I got an amazing center image, and the soundstage extended well beyond the speakers themselves. I may well be the 2nd person in Northern Virginia to own a pair, due some time in the next two weeks.

Hi, Sorry for the delays, but finally, our containers are moving. We expect to be shipping Triton Ones again in about a week. This will not cover all the backorder, as demand is going wild, but will make a good dent. As is normal, we will probably be running a backorder all fall, but our production capability is good so we will be able to meet the demand. As they say, all good things are worth waiting for. BTW, this appeared yesterday: http://www.hifiplus.com/articles/fir...loudspeaker-1/ Onward and Upward, Sandy

Yes I have 2 sets of nht speakers. 1 for my cottage ht and 1 set I use for my living room ht. The tritons I use for my 2 channel rig with my benchmark dac and bryston 4bbsst2 amp. The tritons are much better in my opinion.

I have owned four 2.5 NHT and an NHT center channel speaker since 1995. I was totally
blown away with the way they sounded. I always used a mid priced receiver so never really got the full potential of what these speakers could deliver. Two years ago I purchased a Marantz av7005 and an Emotiva xpa 5. What a difference. It made those speakers sing. Meanwhile I had been keeping up with the rave reviews for the Triton Two and purchased a pair the last day before their price went up. All I can say is that it has been the best investment in audio that I have ever made. I can't imagine a better set of speakers. But wait, there is more. I purchased a pair of Triton Ones a few weeks ago and they are totally awesome. So, in my opinion the Triton speakers are far and away better than the NHTs.

This was the same with me when I had my Triton 2's even though they were the best I had heard I was only using an AVR and no stand alone sub which never gave me the volume that I wanted. Now that I have a Pre/Pro setup plus an HSU sub I can't wait to get back to a pair of Tritons.

Thanks for the replies. I'm thinking of getting a pair of SVS PC12-Plus subs to place behind of a pair of Triton Sevens. Would that be a good match/setup? Also want to upgrade my old, mid-level Yamaha receiver with something nicer like a Marantz SR7009. I do have a Parasound high bias 200Wx2 amp to power the Sevens with. I think I want to get the subs first, just not sure if I should get the receiver before or after the speakers. My main issue is that my current receiver only has 1 global crossover point.

Might try setting all speakers to large & see if thereceiver lets you run the lfe and the speaker bass to the sub. On my Denon this is called lfe+.

Hi, LFE+, SuperBass, Bass+, Double Bass etc, will run bass frequencies to the main Left and Right speakers as well as through the LFE out to a subwoofer (or the subwoofers in a Triton One, Two or Three) when you are listening to two channel stereo program material. The issue here is that it can result in boomy bass on music, because you are doubling up on the bass. It may be OK when the main speakers don't have much bass, but in those cases, you may want to limit the bass going to the main speakers as they may not be able to handle the deep bass when the system is played loud. With Triton Ones, Twos and Threes, this can be a particular issue because you will be feeding the same bass information to the subwoofer twice, once through the LFE in and once through the speaker wire. I will mention again that with movies we have recently discovered that the Large Left and Right, No Sub setting, which we have been recommending, in many cases rolls off the LFE information because the electronics manufacturers have programmed it this way, and you very well may get more impactful movie performance running a Y out of the LFE into your Tritons, and Large Left and Right, Sub Yes (but we recommend not LFE+ etc). All the Best, Sandy

That's interesting! I have noticed that with my NHT VT-2 speakers, which have built in Passive 10" side firing subs, if I set them up as Large/No sub there is very weak bass. But if I set the speakers to Small with a sub and use the sub output to an external amp that powers just the built-in subs, the bass is extremely powerful!
This is the main reason I want to add a True Subwoofer to my system before replacing my speakers or receiver.

Thanks for the info! I never could figure out the issue I was having, that explains it!

Was getting ready to upgrade to Atmos and had a question and wanted y'alls feedback. I was thinking of getting 4 SuperSat 3's instead of doing 4 in-ceiling speakers? I have a vaulted ceiling on the right side (if facing the screen). Right where the vaulted part meets the flat part of the ceiling is where I wanted to add the speakers for Atmos. Obviously I can't place in-ceilings at this location and I don't want to install in-ceiling speakers on the vaulted side as they would not be pointed straight down. I would use the Def Tech wall mounts for the SuperSat 3's.

Do you guys have any other suggestions? You can see my room in my sig. Thanks for the help!!

This was my experience when I had my set of Triton 2's, I didn't have a stand alone Sub and the bass out of the 2's was just never enough. For movies it was okay but when I wanted 2 channel music they couldn't go low enough.
Not that I have my HSU VTF-3 MK4 sub I run my fronts as Small and the Sub handles all lows.
This is the one reason I can't wait to get another set of Triton's now that I have the Sub to handle the lows and the power to push, can't wait to get that perfect sound again.

For me the sound of the Triton's was the best I had ever heard, it was so clear and crisp, but there just wasn't enough of it..Also I only had the SuperSat50c for my center channel and maybe in a small room its great but just wasn't enough for me for as much I like to watch movies.
Now I see that they have figured this out and came out with their new Center Channel which is more suited for HT use.
I went through several speaker systems looking for "more" sound and have achived that in volume but not quality.

Bigham16,

You have a very nice setup in the man cave, makes me want to do the same thing.

With 9.1 configuration and the Front Heights being SuperSat 50c, you can do the following 7.1.4 Atmos speaker setup.

Front Heights (FH) + Rear Heights (RH)

Just make sure you're achieving the angles to the Main Listening Position as shown in the oft posted Denon diagram.

For the FH speakers, you're looking at 30 to 45 deg. The RH speakers are 135 to 150 deg.

Check that your current 9.1 configuration for the main channels are also compliant with the suggested layout by Denon.


To switch between the the 9.1 to 7.1.4 Atmos configuration would require that the height speakers have external amps. This was advised by batpig when he deciphered the Denon X5200 manual.

You do know that your existing Denon 4520 receiver would need to be upgraded to an Atmos type such as the X5200/X7200?

Hi Steve and thank you for the info and remarks about my room Yes, I pre-ordered the Marantz 7009 and can't wait. I printed out the diagram you posted and will use it installing my 4 height speakers, thanks again.

I will have to experiment with how my front height will sound vs the top front heights. Should make for a fun day!!

With 9.1 configuration and the Front Heights being SuperSat 50c, you can do the following 7.1.4 Atmos speaker setup.

Front Heights (FH) + Rear Heights (RH)

Just make sure you're achieving the angles to the Main Listening Position as shown in the oft posted Denon diagram.

For the FH speakers, you're looking at 30 to 45 deg. The RH speakers are 135 to 150 deg.

Check that your current 9.1 configuration for the main channels are also compliant with the suggested layout by Denon.


To switch between the the 9.1 to 7.1.4 Atmos configuration would require that the height speakers have external amps. This was advised by batpig when he deciphered the Denon X5200 manual.

You do know that your existing Denon 4520 receiver would need to be upgraded to an Atmos type such as the X5200/X7200?

Do report back to the thread regarding Dolby Atmos change and using what ever GE speakers you have installed.

Until the studios release Atmos soundtracks for movies, the existing blu-ray collection can use the Dolby Surround Up-mix (DSU) feature. Would like your impressions on how good or bad it is. This is for both movies and music.

Maranatz SR-7009(on order), Oppo BPD-93, MTV 7000D, LG LW6500, aTV, WDTV Live, Harmony 650 remote, KEF E301, MiniDSP(2x4), Rythmik F12G

Hi, I thought that everyone would enjoy seeing the new Triton One review which is just out in the October issue of The Absolute Sound. I am very proud and pleased, needless to say. All the Best, Sandy

Hi, FYI, We will be demo'ing a Dolby Atmos System at CEDIA. I am including our press release here, for those that are interested. All the Best, Sandy

GoldenEar CEDIA 2014 Will Feature Our Triton One Home Theater System Plus No-Holds-Barred Dolby Atmos Demo to Deliver the Ultimate Cinematic Sound Experience


(September 11, 2014 – Baltimore, MD) GoldenEar Technology’s new Triton One flagship tower loudspeaker system is shipping in August to dealers, and has already created tremendous impact in the marketplace, both as a high-end two-channel stereo speaker as well as the anchor for a superb home theater system. When GoldenEar debuted the Triton One in January at the CES, we focused on two-channel playback in order to demonstrate the superb musical capabilities of this remarkable groundbreaking and award-winning speaker, which we did to unanimous raves.

At CEDIA, we will be showing off the Triton One’s cinematic superiority in addition to its musical excellence, in an extraordinary home theater system incorporating two Triton Ones for front Left and Right Mains, a SuperCenter XL for the center channel, and two Triton Twos as Left and Right Surrounds. A unique aspect of this system will be running a 4-way split out of the LFE into the subwoofer sections of all four Tritons! The built-in subwoofers in each Triton will be functioning both as a dedicated subwoofer on its own channel, as well as one of four subwoofers on the LFE channel. This is a unique set-up that is easily achieved with Tritons, which is absolutely breathtaking in its ability to completely immerse the listener in the LFE soundfield.

In addition, speaking of truly immersing the listener in the soundfield, we will also be demonstrating Dolby’s new Atmos system, the way it is done in the theaters, and as it was originally conceived of, for ultimate no-holds-barred systems in the home. This will be the real deal Atmos done right, with four discreet in-ceiling mounted height channel speakers located above the listening area. In this incredible high-impact GoldenEar system, the height speakers will be four of our superb Invisa HTR 7000s, which are perfectly matched to the Tritons, for a seamless 3-dimensional cinematic experience that will rival and, in many cases, exceed the performance available in the best specialty theatrical Atmos venues. We are very excited about Dolby’s new Atmos System, especially when executed with great speakers in the ideal format, where it is then able to both add dramatic atmospheric affects as well as to precisely locate specific objects and events in a 360 degree hemisphere around the listeners. Don't miss out on this, CEDIA's biggest and most impressive demo experience! See us at CEDIA 2014, Booth SR-3.
