Chinese TV makers are all over CES showing sets with the same high-end tech that Korean and Japanese companies are touting. While some companies — HiSense, for example — will sell those models through outlets familiar to U.S. consumers like Best Buy, others like Konka have no plans to ship their premium models to these shores.

For Sony’s CES exhibit, the company put the focus on its proprietary TV technology, rather than trot out an extended lineup of 2016 models. The model it used for the demos, which encompassed its new Slim Backlight Drive, 4K Processor X1, and X-tended Dynamic Range PRO, was the XBR X930D.

LG made a bold statement with its Signature model and other OLED TVs at CES, but it isn’t the only company hawking the technology. A surprisingly small A/V product showcase in Panasonic’s booth featured the company’s forthcoming 65CZ950 OLED UHDTV.

Anyone who ever writes about consumer electronics—especially at shows like CES and CEDIA—runs the risk of praising a really cool product that, unfortunately, never sees the light of day. (It’s also the curse of anyone who covers Kickstarter and Indiegogo campaigns.)

But I sure as hell hope they do.

It’s hard to put together a side-by-side comparison of anything in video—too many variables get in the way. It’s even harder to show such a comparison through the filter of a camera, a bandwidth-limited Internet connection, and a desktop computer monitor. But this comparison that LG showed in its booth looked close in person to what you see here, and perhaps even more strikingly so. Ignore the color differences; they were either produced in the camera or were on the screen. I was looking for other things in trying to get the shot of a moving image at an opportune time, so can’t say for certain. But they’re not part of the HDR process!...

I speculated a few months back that what the world needs is an Atmos soundbar. The industry must have been listening, because we now have at least two such products, one from Samsung and the other from Yamaha. I haven’t heard the Yamaha, but the Samsung HW-K950 was being demonstrated at this year’s CES...

Few manufacturers make value products with Emotiva's fervor and expertise, so the new Airmotiv speaker line is big news for those who want bang for buck.

The folks at SAE often find their products used in 8- to 15-channel installations, so the SAE 8300 multichannel amp offers eight times 300 watts into eight ohms (and lots more into lower impedances).
