Custom Plus Distributing will host a grand opening of its San Jose location on August 19.
It’s been an eye-opening few weeks for those in the consumer electronics industry who thought that the summer of 2014 was going to be a time to take a breather before heading into Q3 and the holiday selling season.
CE Week NYC last month drew the most diverse mix of show-goers ever in its multi-year history. Dealerscope canvassed attendees from the retailing, distributing and buying group CE sectors to find out what trends and products resonated most strongly for them—and what impact the show would have on their businesses. Here’s what they had to say. (Interviews by Nancy Klosek)
Onkyo announced a variety of new audio products this week, including upgrades to its home-theater-in-a-box packages, a Dolby Atmos-enabled speaker system and a new AV receiver.
Some highlights of the video produced by CE Week TV, featuring product demos:
Pioneer began their press conference Wednesday at CE Week by directly addressing the elephant in the room.
Imperatives needed to get top-drawer “better-than-CD-quality” audio in front of consumers beyond the audiophile fringe were the main topics of discussion among a mixed group of hardware, content and engineering experts, at Wednesday’s CE Week panel entitled, “Making High-Resolution Audio Accessible.”
Pioneer has agreed to sell the majority of its home/AV business, to both a Hong Kong private equity firm and to Onkyo.
Onkyo on Monday announced the arrival of several new products, including THX-Certified 9.2-Channel TX-NR1030 Network A/V Receiver, 11.2-Channel TX-NR3030 Network A/V Receiver, and 11.2-Channel PR-SC5530 Network A/V Controller.
It's always a good day for home audio when Onkyo announces a new AV receiver, let alone two. And that's exactly what's going down.
