I have been shopping around locally for a set of L/C/R speakers under $5k. One of the local dealers only carriers GoldenEar's for that price point. All the other dealers have typical 2/3 way towers with 1 or 2 drivers.
The GoldenEar triton 2 is $1500 each, it has 1 tweeter, 2 mid range drivers, 2 more bass drivers, 2 sub radiators, 2 crossovers, and a powered amp for the sub, all for $1500. Not to mention its in a huge cabinet. For the price you pay, I feel your getting a bit way too much stuff.
The matching SuperCenter has 1 tweeter, 2 mid range drivers, and 2 planers for $800. Every other center speaker at this price point only has 1 tweeter and 2 mid range drivers.
I also don't feel comfortable with having electronics in my floor standers, I want these speakers to last 10+ years and feel better having separate subs.
Anyone else feel the same way?
