For owners and non-owners alike.

Non-owners are always prospective owners, and they too should have a place to consume first-hand observations and the musings of the well informed (one can but hope).

At this time there are two other GoldenEar threads at AVS Forum, with an unsatisifed request to merge the threads or create an "owners" thread.
And since it's easier to get forgiveness than permission, I thought I'd take matters into hand.

The existing GoldenEar threads can be found here -->

Golden Ear Super Sat 60's LCR - not happy
In my home theater I am using Golden Ear Super Sat 60's for my LCR front stage. I am pairing them with 2 SVS PB2000 subs. I have an Anthem MRX 720 but using 3 Outlaw mono block amps for the LCR. I have to say that I am not that please with the Golden Ears speakers. Not sure what it is but they sound too high or tinny and it does not sound natural. They just do not seem to sound so good. I have ARCed my system several times and the LCR gets set at 120Hz. Was wondering if anyone has any thoughts on these speakers. I am most likely going to sell them.

I have a friend who is a Paradigm dealer and am looking at the Millenia 30 reference speakers to replace my Golden Ears. Anyone have any thoughts on them? Is there something better that I can get in that price range. All thoughts and comments are appreciated. I am looking to do this in the next month.

The only obvious thing I see is the crossover seems a bit high compared to what the manual recommends (100hz):
Maybe manually set 100hz and see how that sounds?

I have already tried 100Hz and did not make a difference.

Hi, and a few questions that I did not read any answers in the review.

Can the T-Ref be bi-amped?

What amp are people using to push these new speakers?

What would Sandy consider to be the best amp for this speaker.

I am an avid home theater guy and am looking to upgrade from my Triton Ones. Love movies and concert blu-rays.

I have the XXL center channel and find it to be not as clean as I would like.

I have 2 choices, one to go from the Ones to the Reference

or

found some used B&W so wish to

Upgrade Mains from Golden Ear Triton One to B&W Nautilus 800
Upgrade Centre from Golden Ear Supercentre XXL to B&W HTM1D


The challenge, in my eyes, with the 2nd choice is that I am using the Classé 5300 and would bi-amp my front L & R but only have 1 channel left to bi-amp the centre, so would have to get another 3-channel amp to run my lower part of the centre + my 2 rears, as I did not bi-amp the GE Ones, but feel that I should do for the Reference.


The B&W may be a little large for my room (14.5' x 23') but I will have front speakers that will be much more crisp than the Ones that I have now.


Hope to hear from a few GE fans very soon so I can make a decision


Steve

Sandy likes Pass Labs.

I like ATI.

Not sure there is any benefit to bi amp T1 or TRef

As far as clean and crisp well it could be setup, speaker placement and or lack of acoustic treatments.
