I am in Plano, TX for work this week, so I have the opportunity to head to CEDIA again this year since it is right next door in Dallas (ok, so they are about a 50 minute drive between each other, but still close).

Anyone have anything that they would like me to check out for them?

Yeah, I am hoping for some DTS:X information/demo as well. There are going to be over 20 Atmos demos this year, so I will partake in a few of those, but compared to the 6 or whatever it was last year, I won't get to them all.

I do have a "private" (me and about 20 other people) demo first thing in the morning tomorrow at the Steinway Lyngdorf demo room. They had the BEST Atmos demo last year, of course the room had speakers and processing equipment valued at over $250,000 at DEALER COST (MSRP was much higher), so it should have been (and was) impressive. Their processor has DTS:X capabilities, so here's hoping that they have some demo material!

I also have a private (again, about 25 of us total) demo of some Epson projectors, including at least 1 laser model. Should be an interesting perspective. That is slated for the last hour of the day tomorrow.

I will see if I can find someone who is promoting quantum dot technology tonight at the hotel and hit their booth tomorrow.

I found James Loudspeakers is doing a DTS:X demo (and an Auro one, but I've never been impressed with Auro).

There are several major players with laser projection this year. Shouldn't be hard to see a few.

I am going to check out Vizio's booth as they are going to have a 120" TV with High Dynamic Range and Dolby Vision. You should buy one, they are only $120,000 USD.

Now to find a "quantum dot" demo.

UPDATE: Vizio is going to have a 65" version of the 120" mentioned above that has quantum dot technology.

Cool beans Nick. Curious what you think of the James demo. Their speakers are rumored to be pretty special.

Dont forget to snag a pic of the dts layout if you can. Wink.

Let me know what Nakamichi's new line of cassette decks looks like.

I would like to update my Dragon.

Brief status update as the day gets rolling.
Convention center is quite sprawling and I headed towards the back which was quite a walk. Several booths aren't set up. Must have been too much partying last night.

Saw a huge OLED tv that was pretty darn impressive. Then got sucks into a "free" massage using an electronic device that they of course we're selling. After sitting there for about 25 minutes, I made it to my first demo. The massively impressive (and expensive) Steinway Lyngdorf demo. They have it set up for Atmos, DTS:X, and Auto 3D. Just waiting for a previous demo to end and then I am grabbing a seat and some pictures.

Nice. Maybe I should update my Fisher CD player.

Demos, demos, and more demos... waiting on an Integra demo now. Want to get to Sony soon as the line for their laser projector demo is currently at a 45 minute wait and will get longer before it gets shorter. I will post some random photos and details tonight. So far no cassette players, but certainly some stuff that plays vinyl.
