In the summer of 2010, Sandy Gross, co-founder of two of the most successful speaker lines in the history of the audio industry, announced the launch of a new loudspeaker company, GoldenEar Technology.
“Speaker design is what we’ve done all our lives; we love it and are really good at it. In almost every case, the creative entrepreneurial founders of the industry’s major loudspeaker companies have left, and their companies are now owned by private equity firms or are part of large conglomerates. We wanted to bring back the combination of entrepreneurial spirit and passion for incredible sound which has always driven this business and helped to create the great speaker companies of the past.”
The GoldenEar Technology line embodies revolutionary engineering breakthroughs, while adhering to the standards of superb sonic performance, elegant styling and exceptional value that Sandy and his design partners have always used as their personal design benchmarks. GoldenEar's recipe for success is simple: the best products offered only by the best specialty dealers and custom installers -those who share our enthusiasm for great sound and great value.
GoldenEar’s products are extremely focused and highly targeted to appeal to discerning buyers who are looking for something more exciting and clearly more desirable than homogenized, mass-market products that have overtaken the speaker market.
Initial response confirms that GoldenEar, Gross’s third company, is clearly destined for greatness. Preliminary press was extremely enthusiastic. From Darryl Wilkinson of Home Theater Magazine: ”What we saw was elegant, affordable and had all the makings of another blockbuster line.” In Sound & Vision Magazine, whose reviewers have often praised the fruits of Sandy’s “golden ears” , Al Griffin wrote, “Something big is in the works." He was clearly correct - as is evident from GoldenEar quickly becoming the most award winning new speaker company in decades.
