DENVER — Home systems requiring professional installation are the stock-in-trade of CEDIA Expo attendees, but they’re also coming to the show to hear the latest in high-performance audio.
Showgoers will find compact powered subs, inroom speakers, passive and active soundbars, under-TV speakers, Wi-Fi speakers, stand-alone highresolution audio DACs, integrated amp/DACs and more.
Here at the show, Artison is launching its first freestanding subwoofer, AudioControl is unveiling a slim DAC/amp that fits behind a TV, and Bryston is launching a component-style digital music player.

Sony and Yamaha will show new active soundbars, and Yamaha is showing its first under-TV speaker.
On top of that:
• Monitor Audio is expanding its selection of passive three-channel soundbars and Wi-Fi speakers.
• Parasound is bringing an improved DAC/headphone amp, a prototype of its first integrated amp/DAC, and its first 12-channel multizone amplifier in years; and
