CES 2022 Event Showcases Diversity of Today’s Smart Home
For years … in fact decades, audiophiles and videophiles looked forward to the CES show to see their favorite brands, including, the aforementioned Sony, as well as audio heavy hitters such as McIntosh, Klipsch, JBL and many others introduce the year’s newest amplifiers, speakers, turntables and more.
Back in the day attendees could visit audio-only locations such as Alexa Park or more recently the Venetian Hotel and spend days checking out the latest audio components.
Times have changed, however. As the home electronics market has grown outside of the comfortable parameters of audio and video hobbyists and into the broader smart-home market, home audio’s relevance at the show has been minimalized and replaced by the growing presence of smart home solutions.
In the early days of the smart home market companies such as Crestron, Lutron and Elan were driving forces behind the category’s emerging importance.
