When PSB launched its entry-level Alpha series over 25 years ago, they were hailed as one the greatest values in low-cost loudspeakers right out of the gate. Now, the long-running line has undergone a full revision—only its second in nearly three decades—with the introduction of the new T20 tower speakers ($599/pr), P3 ($199/pr) and P5 ($299/pr) bookshelf speakers, and C10 ($349) center-channel speaker. All models are available in both black ash and walnut woodgrain vinyl finishes.

Harman set up shop at CES in sprawling suite of ballrooms at the Hard Rock Hotel. Once I wandered past exhibits dedicated to connected automotive tech, cybersecurity, and a host of other things I had no idea the company was involved in, I landed in a cozy corner where JBL’s vintage-inspired speakers were on display.

Relative newcomer Edifier is showing off an impressive array of new speakers at CES 2019. As the first serious audio brand from mainland China to make an impact on the world market, the brand is probably making some of the older, more established brands a bit nervous.
