We just changed out the screw...for one the right size......
and no....only the top was secured.....yet...it was fine.

Clearly a dedicated stand would be ideal....but being a dealer...we needed to come up with a solution asap. We have done a number of stands now for SS50 and SS3.....all worked fine....as did a PROMOUNT wall bracket from Definitive as well.....for wall mounting on a ball mount.....

cheers

Received a recommendation from the Tech Support people on using the Sanus EFSat/b. They were kind enough to send me photo of what the 50's look like.

I ordered a pair (50 - Amazon) and installed them.

I did fully extend the speaker stand to acheive ear level height and use the L bracket (reverse it - have the speaker attach to the L bracket the using a #10 flat head machine screw with about 1/4 in space to hang the speaker and also attach screw to center slot in speaker)

At full extension, the speakers can be tipped over if pushed about 20 degrees from vertical, but i have them in a location where people will not run into them. They have done exceptionally well.

If Golden Ear comes up with their own stands that are attractive and reasonably priced i will probaby pick those up to replace the Sanus stands, but for $50 and immediate use, I'm in no hurry.

By the way, a larger base and some additional weight would be nice to reduce tip over possibility.

Just like that old saying, "slow but sure wins the race", the floor stands for SuperSat speakers and the Table/Shelf stand for the SuperSat 50 finally have a delivery date! We expect them to be in-stores by early August. Our apologies to everyone who has been waiting for these stands.

Our designer, speaker industry legend Sandy Gross, refuses to use "off the shelf" solutions for any of his products, which includes stands. This means that once he has completed his own unique design concept and engineering has produced a final approved sample, a significant amount of time is then required to make the special tooling required to make the final GoldenEar product. We are now at the end of this cycle and first products are scheduled to be produced very soon. Look for more information on our website or from your local dealer in the coming months.

Good news!

On a related note, I'm curious what crossover frequency (to subs) would be recommended for the SuperSat 50? Will you publish your frequency response curve? That would of course be helpful to those of us who are thinking of the SuperSat50 as the main in a two channel "audiophile" (music oriented) system.

Cult legend in the making? :)

In a SuperCinema 50 System with one sub we would recommend a crossover between 80Hz to 120Hz, depending on room size and how loud you want the system to play. In a two sub system with both subs in the front a crossover up to 150Hz will yield the maximum playing ceiling for the system.

Regarding publishing frequency response curves, we tend to leave that to the magazines so the curves have a comparative reference. The response does change depending on wall mount or free air installation as well.

I had a chance to play with a 2.1 SuperSat 50 system in a normal size living room. I settled on a 100Hz crossover and the results were stunning. For music playback that system would play louder without strain than I would ever want to listen (and cleaner loud than the big and very expensive floor standing towers they replaced, with unbelievable imaging). And yes, these speakers are definitely a legend in the making!
