It might take a minute to process what you’re looking at. Those squiggly figures are not pieces from a life-size puzzle, and you won’t find them in the gift shop at Muir Woods (or some other rustic destination). Nope. What you see is the brainchild of Sia Rezaei, who had been building speakers as a hobby until he took on the challenge of making “some awesome desktop speakers” back in 2010.

Walking the aisles of last week’s CEDIA Expo I stumbled upon the Whisper II TV lift from Touchstone of Exton, PA.

It’s been a few years since I checked out motion seating (had a butt massage) at an electronics tradeshow so I stopped by the Jaymar booth at CEDIA 2015 to experience the “world premiere of new luxury D-Box motion-enabled seating.”

The bright green fiberglass-reinforced plastic enclosure of the Subterrain-12 caught my eye as I walked the aisles of CEDIA 2015. Designed to be buried 3 feet under, the subterranean subwoofer has a 12-inch driver that vents through a mushroom dome that blends nicely into landscaped areas.

The race is on to see who will be first to market with a Dolby Atmos-enabled in-wall speaker. As noted in yesterday’s report, SpeakerCraft is staging an impressive demo of its working Atmos 100 Height Module here at CEDIA 2015. A few aisles away, Triad has its own Atmos-enabled module, the cleverly named InWall Height Module.

You can’t walk too far through the aisles of CEDIA without running into an in-wall/ceiling speaker—and nearly all of them look alike. James Loudspeaker takes a different approach with its Small Aperture architectural speakers—like the $1,500 63SA-4—which produces full-range sound from a 3 x 3-inch square (or round) cutout in the wall (or ceiling). The cutout is, of course, neatly concealed by an inconspicuous flush-mount grille.
