CES Day 4: PSB and NAD
Today was my day to cover the Alexis Park, the site of the high-end audio exhibits. Since my beat is home theater, and the Alexis exhibits specialize in 2-channel setups, much of my time was taken up searching for speakers that might find a comfortable spot in a home theater setup, along with the odd subwoofer, pre-pro or multi-channel amp.
Before I got to the Alexis, however (more blogs to follow), I stopped off at the Hard Rock Hotel, where NAD and PSB were holding court. The NAD Masters Series (pre-pro, multichannel amp, universal player, and some 2-channel pieces), should finally be available early this year. At the demo they were driving some new PSB speakers, the VisionSound Series. It consists of an on-wall or table-mount VS300 LCR ($749 each) and the VS400 floor-stander ($999 each). The VS300 is available this month, the VS400 will ship soon.—TJN
