I first learned of Teenage Engineering when I read about its cool, affordable pocket synthesizers . What a surprise it was, then, to bump into them during my final few minutes at CEDIA, where the company was showing its new OD-11 wireless speaker on a quiet strip at the far end of the convention center.

You’d expect the British to know a thing or two about inclement weather, which is maybe why it took England-based Monitor Audio so long to come up with a right proper speaker designed to handle the elements with a stiff upper lip. The company proved it was more than ready to take on Mother Nature with the launch of its new All Weather in-ceiling speaker series.

The new line-up will feature four models, both a 6-inch and 8-inch version in stereo and single stereo-summing options. All speakers incorporate Monitor’s C-CAM (Ceramic-Coated Aluminium/Magnesium) driver system which has been ported from the company’s critically acclaimed loudspeakers, utilizing 1-inch C-CAM Gold dome tweeters.

Known for manufacturing incredibly powerful and accurate subwoofers like the Fathom and Gotham, JL Audio introduced the smaller and more installation friendly Fathom IWS in-wall subwoofer system at CEDIA. This slimmed down model will allow theater owners and music lovers to enjoy deep and tight bass in a far more discreet manner.

Part of the magic of getting significant bass performance from this new design is a ported enclosure that mounts inside standard 16-inch on center stud openings. Yes, a ported in-wall subwoofer enclosure. This unique design vents through a slot located at the perimeter of the 8-inch speaker driver and enhances the sub’s efficiency and low-bass output. The enclosure measures 61.626-inches high and fits between standard 2x4 wall construction, and makes the sub’s effective displacement 27.5 cubic inches.

Small enough to sit on a computer desk—which is how it was set up at CEDIA—but powerful enough to drive a pair of tower speakers, ELAC’s new EA101EQ-G Element integrated amp is built to fit into a range of hi-fi scenarios. At $699, it also embodies the same easy-on-the-wallet ethos as the company’s popular, Andrew Jones-designed speakers.

Slovenian company, Qubino, says the Qubino Weather Station is “the world's first Z-Wave supported weather station to collect 10 essential values: indoor and outdoor temperature and humidity, rainfall and wind direction, speed, gust, temperature and chill.” All measured data is then sent to the Z-Wave network for use by user’s control system in order to respond to changes in weather conditions as necessary.

The Qubino Weather Station’s sensors include...

The JBL/Harman Luxury Group demo was perhaps the most impressive at the show for the totality of its picture and sound.

Monoprice doesn’t offer just direct sale cables and big power amps. At CEDIA they offered some exciting new (and surprisingly cheap) products.

CEDIA is a custom installation show by definition, and many or most of the demos used in-wall or on-wall speakers, for better or worse. One of the “better” was the GoldenEar demo.

t may be unglamorous, but many of us have a need to darken our home theater spaces, particularly when using a projector and a conventional screen. Normally this involves either a tedious process of manually closing the drapes, or buying expensive, custom, powered blinds...
