Stevenson, Md. - Startup GoldenEar Technology has signed up more than 100
dealers for its inaugural series of home speakers but delayed shipment until
December from October.

Co-founder
Sandy Gross Founder cited "all sorts of little things" for the changed date.

The
speakers are targeted to
independent A/V specialists. The company doesn't plan to sell to regional
chains or to online stores.

The
company was founded by Sandy Gross, co-founder of Polk Audio and
Definitive Technology, and Don Givogue, another Definitive co-founder.

The startup's first products, which debuted at
the CEDIA Expo
, consisted of five in-room speakers and two
subwoofers.

The company has promoted the use of such technologies as
accordion-like ribbon tweeters and multivaned phase plugs on midrange/bass
drivers as enabling the speakers to deliver greater frequency response, dynamic
range, and detail than competing models at the same price points and with
greater imaging width, depth, and height.

Both
technologies appear in all speakers but the two standalone powered subs.

The
lineup includes the:

  • $1,249-each Triton Two three-way tower;

  • slim two-way SuperSat 50 left-right speaker and its center-channel version, the
    SuperSat 50C, both at $499 and both suitable for wall mounting because of their
    2.5-inch depth;

  • the
    SuperSat3 small satellite, available in a horizontal center-channel SuperSat 3C
    version, each offered at $249; and

  • the
    $499 ForceField 3 and $699 ForceField 4 powered subs, made of high-density MDF
    in matte-black finish. Both are trapezoid-shaped with rounded edges.

The
speakers can be assembled to create three different 5.1-channel home-theater
speaker systems at $1,750, $2,700 and $3,500.
