GoldenEar Technology SuperCinema 3D Array X 5.1 System Loudspeaker
GoldenEar Technology SuperCinema 3D Array X 5.1 System Speakers
The 3D Array soundbars incorporate six (3D Array X) or eight (3D Array XL) of GoldenEar Technology Technology's spider-leg cast basket 4.5" bass-midrange drivers with our unique Multi-Vaned Phase Plugs (MVPP™). In addition, there are three of GoldenEar Technology's extraordinary High-Velocity Folded Ribbon tweeters (HVFR™). Both utilize our new, patent pending, Mag-X Coupling™ Crossover Technology, which delivers improved 3D imaging as well as smoother response and greater detail. The 3D Array X is an ideal match for 48"- 60" TVs, the 3D Array XL is an ideal match for 65" and up TVs. The beautiful piano-gloss-black-finished cabinets are aerospace-grade extruded aluminum with marble-powder-infused baffle and end-caps. They can be easily wall-mounted using their keyhole mounts or threaded brass inserts, or shelf-mounted using their adjustable rear supports.
The SuperCinema® 3D Array® soundbars are remarkable new loudspeaker systems that combine the elegant form factor of a soundbar with the extraordinary sonic performance of a true discrete-speaker surround system. The aesthetically compelling visual appeal of a soundbar is undeniable. Unfortunately, both passive and active soundbars fail to achieve a truly convincing surround-sound experience when compared to a high-quality, fully discrete multi-channel surround system. GoldenEar Technology Technology has developed a unique new technology for our soundbars that incorporates special 3D image optimization technology to achieve superbly lifelike, wide, deep 3D playback realism with virtually no acoustic coloration.
This technology, pioneered by Sandy Gross, effectively addresses certain problems that have been brought up recently in a 3D audio research project being conducted by Dr. Edgar Choueiri at Princeton University. Dr. Choueiri points out that the crosstalk that exists between the left and right loudspeakers and our contralateral ears, especially when the left and right channels are minimally separated (as we normally encounter in soundbar systems), is deleterious to our brain's ability to fullyexperience and process the imaging cues so necessary for 3D imaging perception. These imaging cues are present in the recordings but dramatically corrupted in typical soundbar playback where the left and right channel speakers are simply too close together.
The 3D Array Soundbars incorporate left-, center- and right-channel speakers, plus a second set of drivers that utilize 3D Array Technology to effectively cancel out this crosstalk distortion between the left and right channel. The result is a front soundstage that stretches from wall to wall and beyond, with amazing height, width and depth that effectively envelops the listeners in a true 180-degree soundfield, much wider than the actual physical soundbar! All this is contained within sleek, attractive 2.7" thin enclosures that perfectly complements the latest super-thin flat panel TVs.
The 3D Array soundbars are designed for use with a powered subwoofer - the GoldenEar Technology ForceField Subwoofers are engineered to be the perfect high-performance match.
Surround Speakers Optional: Our unique 3D Array Technology delivers extraordinary surround sound performance with or without rear surround speakers. Excellent and convincing surround sound performance is achieved even without surround speakers, however, when the 3D Arrays are combined with a pair of rear surrounds (like our SuperSat 3s or Invisa In-Ceiling) the result is a mind-boggling true surround-sound experience that rivals discrete six-speaker (or more) systems. In fact, it actually surpasses all but the very best in the ability to dramatically recreate the realism of a live performance or a cinematic event.
