One of the best things about big trade shows like CES is running
into old friends. I was glad to get the chance to catch up with Definitive
Technology founder Sandy Gross, who recently parted ways with the company that
he founded in 1990 (and sold
to Directed Electronics in 2004).
Sandy is a purposeful guy, so his presence in Las Vegas is an obvious
indicator that something big is in the works. As it turns out, that something
is a new company: GoldenEar Technology. Sandy’s longtime engineering
partner and co-Def Tech founder Don Givogue is onboard with the new company,
which means that we’ll likely be seeing exciting stuff from them in the near
future. No details are available to share yet, but given this duo’s history of
turning out high-performance, high-value speakers, I’d lay odds that something
along those lines is in the works. —Al Griffin
