GoldenEar SuperSat 3: A simply sensational satellite
The SuperSat 3 is a compact yet mighty satellite speaker that’s perfectly timbre-matched to all the other models in the superlative new GoldenEar line.
- One HVFR™ (High-Velocity Folded Ribbon) tweeter
- Two 4-1/2-inch High-Definition cast-basket MVPP™ mid/bass drivers
- Available in vertical and horizontal versions (the one featured on this page is the vertical model)
The SuperSat 3 is an elegantly curved, compact satellite speaker designed for use when very high-performance yet small size is desired. It is also the ideal matching rear or side surround speaker for a system based on the Triton Two or SuperSat 50. In addition, four SuperSat 3s and one SuperSat 3C, combined with a ForceField 3 powered subwoofer, make up the superlative SuperCinema 3 sub/sat multichannel system.
As with the SuperSat 50, there is both a vertical model and a horizontal model optimized specifically for center-channel applications. The SuperSat 3’s svelte, 2.7-inch deep, 12-inch tall cabinet is constructed from a rigid, non-resonant marble-powder infused polymer and is finished in a gorgeous piano-gloss black.
The SuperSat 3 models incorporate two GoldenEar MVPP 4.5-inch cast-basket bass/midrange drivers positioned on either side of the HVFR tweeter. The SuperSat 3 includes a stand for shelf mounting; the SuperSat 3C includes an adjustable angling foot for ideal center channel positioning. Both models incorporate a threaded insert as well as a keyhole mount for wall mounting or for use with the optional floor stand.
“A legend among legends”
— Home Theater on GoldenEar co-founder Sandy Gross
With hundreds of years of combined experience, GoldenEar’s founders and engineering team have created many of the world’s best-sounding and best-selling loudspeakers. Sandy Gross, for instance, was one of the founders of both Polk Audio and Definitive Technology. At ListenUp, we thought so much of his capabilities that we agreed to carry this new brand before we even heard it! When we finally did hear these phenomenal speakers, we thought to ourselves, “Wow! Sandy’s got another winner.” And we’re not alone in that opinion… Doug Schneider of SoundStage.com calls GoldenEar “The next loudspeaker superpower.”
