I took the plunge, those who are running the 7.1.4 setups, what are you using?

The Supersub XXL, its using the same components as the sub in the Triton Ones, so is it essentially the same thing? I'm a novice to the audio world, please educate me.

I run the XL with my T2's and it sounds great!
That is the same way I have mine. Got rid of that darn SS50C as soon as the XL came out. What a HUGE HUGE improvement. I've had my T2's since early 2012 and so far so good. I've even ran them with a pair of 25watt tube mono's (music only).

I agree the XXL is a fantastic center channel. My setup consists of Triton Ones, SCXXL, Aon2 surrounds and a Power Sound Audio V1500 to cover the ULF.

I'm running an Anthem AVM 60 and Sunfire amp for the front end.

It is not much different than the two to my ears.Can get a pair of used T2's for around 1700.00 a pair.

The T2+ has better components.

If you want the performance of the Triton one and have an external sub then the T5 is the way to go.

There is also the new Reference Triton in piano black. It is active.

Won't be too long before there is a passive Reference Speaker i am sure.

Won't surprise me if there is a new powered Reference center to.

Default Goldenear Triton Reference Series

http://hometheaterreview.com/goldene...now-available/

https://www.soundandvision.com/conte...speaker-review

Also review coming from Absolute Sound in August.



I think I pretty well addressed any comparisons and contrasts between the Triton Two+ and Triton One in the Performance section above, but it may be worth reiterating a few points here. On the one hand, they do sound remarkably similar, which is no mean feat given that the Triton Two+ sells for $3,500 per pair and the Triton One for $5,000. On the other hand, those comparisons were made with volumes matched. Needless to say, the Triton One is capable of cranking out a lot more sound than the Triton Two+. If you have a very large room and you've been eyeing the One, don't assume that you can save a few bucks on the Two+ and get the same level of output. That said, if you've been eyeing the One but just can't justify the expense due to limited space or budgetary reasons, here's your answer.
As for other speakers in this price range that you might consider: Definitive Technology's new BP9080x comes in at the same $1,749/each price and certainly shares a good bit in common with the Triton Two+. It has an active bass section, for example, powered by a 455-watt internal amplifier. There's also an LFE input. There are some significant differences, though. The BP9080x is a bipolar design with front- and rear-firing arrays. It's also equipped with an expansion module on top designed to receive Definitive's add-on height-speaker module.
If it's the folded motion tweeter that you're enamored with but you don't really care much about the active bass section or strong dynamic punch, you might also consider MartinLogan's Motion 60XT, which has a similar tweeter but with a passive 6.5-inch mid-woofer and two passive eight-inch low-frequency woofers. You can read more about it in Brent Butterworth's review here.
Conclusion
It's hard to review a GoldenEar speaker without sounding like a fanboy. I fully acknowledge that, and I've been on the receiving end of my fair share of angry comments to that effect. I simply can't hide my enthusiasm when a speaker does pretty much exactly what I want it to do, though. The Triton Two+ delivers incredible depth, palpable detail, exceptional neutrality (especially in the midrange frequencies), and rich, ample, tactile bass that's as musical as it is muscular. What more could you want?
Well, I suppose you could always ask for more SPL, and for that there's the Triton One. If you don't have the room to really let the Triton One loose, though, the Triton Two+ is the next best thing (or maybe the next better thing considering its price). It's everything I love about the Triton One--the detail, the transparency, the depth of its soundstage, and the dynamics--scaled down to a size that better fits my home and my lifestyle.

I had come close to ordering a pair of the Triton One's when they first came out in 2014. I decided to hang on to the Magnepan 1.7's and haven't regretted that decision. Now, however, with the release of the new Triton Reference, I'm beginning to rethink that.

There is one Golden Ear dealer in my area. Not sure if and when he'll get a pair of the Reference in his shop, but I would really like the opportunity to audition them. So far, everything that I have heard and read about the new reference suggests it is a special speaker and outstanding value. We'll have to see how this goes...
