Full Speed Ahead in Audio
By David Dritsas
Despite the setbacks of the market economy in the latter half of 2000, home and personal audio sales have still been strong. Recent numbers from the Consumer Elec-tronics Association report that the first three quarters of 2000 were up 11 percent over 1999, totaling $6.2 billion in revenue.
Following suit, manufacturers are showing no signs of slowing down product introductions. At the 2001 CES, audio enters the new year with some interesting new technologies, as well as the convergence of other consumer technologies into traditional devices.
