I'm in Denver for CEDIA 2023. So far, the show has been impressively busy, and I've heard anecdotally from numerous vendors that they are doing brisk business. Day one and day two featured jam-packed booths, and I explored the floor, but largely skipped doing the demos because they take time and the lines were long. On day one and day two, I focused on video interviews from various exhibitors that you will find here, with more to come.

At Audio Advice Live 2023, the regional AV show held last week in Raleigh, North Carolina, I encountered a unique application for UST (ultra short throw) projectors I had never seen before. As a gamer who enjoys racing and flight simulators, this demonstration resonated with me as much as the massive 9.4.4 or 9.4.6 Atmos home theater systems also found at the show.

Large, powered, wireless party speakers have been around for some time, but 2023 marked the first year I truly took notice. I recently reviewed a Sony party speaker, and this year seems to indeed be the year of the party speaker. At Audio Advice Live in Raleigh, North Carolina, I entered a room in the Sheraton and instead of the typical two-channel high-end system or home theater setups, what I found was a dance floor just waiting for a party to get started. This included disco lights, a DJ rig, and a pair of full-size JBL Partybox 710 speakers handling the PA duties.

Bowers & Wilkins had three separate demo experiences at Audio Advice Live 2023. The company exhibited its 801 D3 flagship loudspeakers, powered by Classé electronics, as well as 700 series S3 speakers; a demo of great relevance to me since I have 700 series speakers in for review. And a powerhouse home theater performance with Marantz handling power and processing.
