Podcast 79: CEDIA 2011 Wrap-Up

Home Theater editor Rob Sabin, senior editor Tom Norton, and I chat about what we saw at the 2011 CEDIA Expo, including the new Sharp Elite LCD TV that looks like a worthy successor to the now-legendary Pioneer Kuro plasma, home-theater projectors with 4K resolution or 2.35:1 native aspect ratio, Epson's first LCoS-variant projector that produced a spectacular image for less then $5000, 3D, Atlantic Technology's bass-friendly soundbar, GoldenEars' and Definitive Technology's new bookshelf speakers, PSB's noise-cancelling headphones, answers to chat-room questions, and more.

Run Time: 58:16

It sounds like you had the same Top Two as I did, the Elite panel and the Epson reflective LCD. Oh, and PSB is Paul and Sue Barton, named for his wife as well. I'd have liked a 4th day possibly as I had no time to cover audio components really and would have enjoyed getting the chance to hear some more of those.

I didn't know the S stands for Sue. I, too, would prefer the extra day to see and hear more things, but the manufacturers seemed to prefer three. Thanks for the comment!

Hello Scott, I enjoyed your podcast. It sounds like you guys were blown away with the 61000 demo. I am interested in this projecter and have some questions. Why did they use a cinecurve screen with a standard lens? I have allways been a DLP fan and now own a DLP projector. Was the sharpness of this reflective LCD good enough to please a DLP fan? If you guys do a future review please address this issue and how good the pixel alignment was.
