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

Bose doesn’t often attend CEDIA (or CES for that matter), so I was surprised to see them here. The emphasis here appeared to be on lifestyle or custom install products, noted in another blog. The pair of 901 Series 6 loudspeakers shown here were also on hand, but not playing. I haven’t followed that speaker for years, but...

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

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...

Alcons is a company new to me, but they went all out in a Pro-for-Home, home theater setup. The speakers were a complex assemblage, with pro mid and high frequency drivers, the latter claimed to be an extremely rugged ribbon...

Samsung’s booth was very small (the same was true of both Sony and LG—common at CEDIA as the big TV makers guard their piggy banks until CES). While nothing was truly new, they did effectively demonstrate their sound-bar based Atmos audio system, and lined up three of their flagship KS9800 curved SUHD sets to wow the crowds.

In-wall, on-wall, and other such custom installation products are a staple at CEDIA. Free-standing speakers? Not so much. Though there’s an ample supply of those (some of which we’ve written up in other show blogs), CES in January is where new box speakers go to be launched.

In an earlier blog I suggested that SIM2 with its new Nero4 projector was the first to use TI’s new pseudo 4K chip, meaning that it uses pixel shifting on its digital micromirrors to put the full resolution of a 4K source on screen, but not all at once. Half of the resolution is presented first, then microseconds later the mirrors shift by a fraction of a pixel and the rest of the image is displayed. Sounds fishy if you haven’t seen it, but it works...
