Hello GoodSound!,

In recent months there has been quite a bit of positive press regarding GoldenEar Technology speakers. Reviews of their Triton 2 towers have been so positive that their Triton models and new Aon bookshelf units all have my curiosity.

Being a relatively new company, there are no GoldenEar dealers in my area so I will need to drive a few hours to audition their offerings for my two-channel system. Prior to taking that step I am doing some preliminary research, which includes contacting your "Ask us" forum.

Has anyone at GoodSound! had an opportunity to listen to any of GoldenEar's offerings and are there any impressions or comments? Are their speakers truly that impressive at their price points? Or is it all relative and a matter of taste?


We’ve heard GoldenEar’s Triton 2 towers at shows, but we've never reviewed them. However, a pair of their new Aon 3 bookshelf models landed on our doorstep and we’re getting ready to measure them and then slip them in the review queue. They won’t be reviewed on GoodSound!, though, but on our sister site, SoundStage! Hi-Fi. . . . Doug Schneider
