Victrola, the name Victor Talking Machine Co. assigned to the iconic floor-standing phonograph it introduced in 1906, has somehow survived the ages and today is known as a purveyor of inexpensive record players and other audio products. Today at CES 2022 the company previewed two portable Bluetooth speakers under the Music Edition banner that represent a break from the vintage motif the company typically embraces.

Looking back on 2021, I can honestly state that it represented an improvement over 2020, though it didn't end up being the full-scale return-to-normal everybody was looking for. A/V consumer and trade shows such as CEDIA Expo in Indianapolis were gutted. Supply chain logjams delayed the arrival of new gear, particularly in core categories like speakers and A/V receivers, both of which ended up underrepresented in our 2021 Top Picks of the Year list compared with previous years. But even with all the challenges, the wheels of industry continued to grind, with much fantastic gear coming in for us to test and recommend.

On Wednesday, CES 2022 returns to the live, in-person format that has defined the seminal event for 55 years but, make no mistake, it’s a smaller show this time around. Much smaller.
