CES 2012

I hope that all our readers had a great holiday season and best wishes for the new year.  We are kicking off 2012 with a bang - a trip to Las Vegas and attendance at CES 2012.  While I have been to Las Vegas many times, this will be my first time attending CES.  Thumbing through the exhibitors list it certainly looks like almost all the Hi-Fi manufacturers will be represented at the show. The high-performance audio exhibits will be located at the Venetian Hotel.  Floor plans for the High-Performance Audio suites are shown below (click floor plan images to enlarge). 

Floor 29 - High-Performance Audio Exhibitors at CES 2012
Floor 30 - High-Performance Audio Exhibitors at CES 2012
Floor 31 - High-Performance Audio Exhibitors at CES 2012
Floors 34 and 35 - High-Performance Audio Exhibitors at CES 2012
As you can see, the show is huge, so naturally I won't be able to provide complete coverage from all the exhibitors.  We will try check out most of the exhibitors and we will report back on the DIY parts suppliers in attendance and also on some of the new and interesting commercial hi-fi products on display.  Updates and coverage from CES 2012 will be posted on this blog and also in the 2012 CES, Las Vegas - diyAudioProjects.com Show Coverage thread on the forum.  I'm looking forward to hearing some very expensive Hi-Fi setups.  It will be interesting to compare the sound from the high-end systems to that of my modest and predominately DIY system.

  1. Have fun at the show Gio. There is plenty to see and some great systems to listen too. Be sure to check out the LAMM rooms. They have one two channel system that is worth $600,000!
