There’s a growing sentiment that the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is rapidly turning into a gadget show driven by computer peripherals and Apple accessories.

But anyone who has spent time at the Venetian would dispute that assertion. The Venetian plays host to some of the best manufacturers and best product demonstrations.

This year’s crop of demos included everything from digital-to-analog converters (DACs) for computer-based systems and streaming media players to more traditional components such as amplifiers, speakers, turntables and home theater processors.
