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

Known for manufacturing incredibly powerful and accurate subwoofers like the Fathom and Gotham, JL Audio introduced the smaller and more installation friendly Fathom IWS in-wall subwoofer system at CEDIA. This slimmed down model will allow theater owners and music lovers to enjoy deep and tight bass in a far more discreet manner.

Part of the magic of getting significant bass performance from this new design is a ported enclosure that mounts inside standard 16-inch on center stud openings. Yes, a ported in-wall subwoofer enclosure. This unique design vents through a slot located at the perimeter of the 8-inch speaker driver and enhances the sub’s efficiency and low-bass output. The enclosure measures 61.626-inches high and fits between standard 2x4 wall construction, and makes the sub’s effective displacement 27.5 cubic inches.

BLUEscent. That’s the moniker for JVC Kenwood’s newest LCOS projector, the DLA-RS4500. Larger than it looks in the photo above, and available with or without carrying handles (I’d recommend the handles!), it’s designed around three of JVC’s true 4K LCOS imaging chips.

KEF America thinks it has the perfect audio solution for a high-end home theater built around LG’s new $19,999 77-inch Signature series OLED TV or Sony’s new $60,000 100-inch LCD TV with Backlight Master Drive HDR technology.

The booths at CEDIA are invariably more modest in scale than what you’ll see at CES. But in LG’s case, that’s not for lack of trying. Outside the entrance, visible on the left side of the photo here, fifteen 55-inch OLED displays were clustered closely together, their thin bezels rendering the seams between them barely visible.

Likely no audio company exhibiting at CEDIA is as well known for digital audio as Meridian. The company pioneered and was built-on the idea of maintaining an digital signal path; keeping the signal in the digital domain from source to speaker and at every step in between. And while this is terrific in an all Meridian system, it doesn’t work so well when trying to integrate with other products.

Now Meridian is releasing the new 258 eight-channel power amplifier that will allow people to enjoy Meridian’s terrific sound quality with any speaker of their choice. The new high-performance, cool-running Class D amplifier comes in a svelte 1U rack mountable chassis and is rated to deliver 100-watts per channel into 4 ohms or 70-watts per channel into 8 ohms.

You’d expect the British to know a thing or two about inclement weather, which is maybe why it took England-based Monitor Audio so long to come up with a right proper speaker designed to handle the elements with a stiff upper lip. The company proved it was more than ready to take on Mother Nature with the launch of its new All Weather in-ceiling speaker series.

The new line-up will feature four models, both a 6-inch and 8-inch version in stereo and single stereo-summing options. All speakers incorporate Monitor’s C-CAM (Ceramic-Coated Aluminium/Magnesium) driver system which has been ported from the company’s critically acclaimed loudspeakers, utilizing 1-inch C-CAM Gold dome tweeters.

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

Shop for cheap cables on Amazon and it won't be long before Monoprice comes up. But the company is good for more than cables.

Long known for affordable and custom install-friendly music servers, Fusion Research has a new model on display at CEDIA that combines two of its Solo servers in a single 1U chassis. The Duet ($799) provides two analog outputs using 192kHz/24-bit-capable Burr Brown DACs for installations where dual independent sources are required.

As has become standard practice, architectural speaker company, Origin Acoustics, announced a slew of new products and initiatives at this afternoon’s press conference, including a preview of products that will be part of an exclusive, co-branded line of architectural speakers with Bang & Olufsen. Rather than attempt to make architectural speakers invisible, the new Origin Acoustics/B&O speakers will incorporate extremely attractive, specially designed grilles that match the typical aesthetics found in traditional B&O products.
