We see a lot of odd tech at CES, but here’s something we scribes, and others who spend hours a day at our desks, can appreciate.

Bang & Olufsen had a small, intimate showing of their latest ideas, projects and products at CES.  A new seasonal color palette and hints about Google Assistant and other voice assistant products were showcased, but right here, right now are the new H8i and H9i headphones.

Walking through South Hall of the LVCC I saw a booth that was covered in posters proclaiming the need to Boycott Psychasec. The posters were then covered in graffiti. Around the front of the booth were skimpily clad, incredibly lifelike male and female mannequins. Total WTF.

RIVA Audio has a great back story. Like a terrific, rock-and-roll, party-all-night back story. And the company’s WAND (Wireless Audio Network Design) series of speakers have gotten solid reviews for terrific sound design. (But don’t take my word for it. Read Sound & Vision editor-in-chief Rob Sabin’s full WAND review here. ) However the initial WAND series was limited to just two products, the Arena and Festival. This is great if you wanted to scatter desktop speakers around your home, but not so great if you wanted to enjoy great sounding tunes using your own speakers. RIVA has heard your cries and come to your aid! Meet the CENTRAL!

Sennheiser, a world leader in high-performance headphones, premiered its new Ambeo 3D Soundbar at CES, the company’s first foray into the soundbar market. The speaker is designed to be an all-in-one solution that won’t require a subwoofer to deliver full-range, room filling sound.

Lots of products shown at CES work with either Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, or Apple HomeKit, but it is a rarefied few that work with all of them. Let alone come in the form factor of an in-wall light switch and include an on-board microphone and speaker for full-on Amazon Alexa control and feedback. This distinct privilege resides with iDevices Instinct Wi-Fi enabled lighting dimmer.

I have no idea what this booth was all about, but it certainly was creepy.

Sony’s premier video processor for 2018 may be the X1 Extreme, but there’s something even better in Sony’s lab.

The problem with many portable speakers is that, well, they’re just not very portable. The X2 speakers from Kempler & Strauss are so small and portable that while they might be able to go anywhere, they’re so small they might get lost.
