15 Awesome A/V Applications from CEDIA Expo 2015
From immersive and wireless audio to 4K RGB laser video, planter speakers, day-and-date movie releases, more OLED, big sound out of small speakers and much more, we take a look at some great audio and video statements made at CEDIA Expo 2015.
Totem Acoustic Big things can come in small audio packages, and Totem proved it at CEDIA Expo. Apart from a fantastic Dolby Atmos demo featuring the company’s Tribe loudspeaker products, in an adjacent area Totem was simply blowing minds with its Kin Mini Flex loudspeakers. The demo setup included a pair of the Mini Flexes, which were due out shortly after the show, and a Mini Sub that was also new. At $375 apiece ($395 including mounting hardware) for the Flex and $499 for the sub, at sizes that underscore their Mini moniker, the highly affordable combination produced what had to be among the best sound for the value at the expo. Not only that, but the speakers were placed at odd angles and positions to underscore the incredible imaging and soundstage they managed to produce. All in all it was an exciting demo to hear for anyone looking for a small-footprint loudspeaker that doesn’t compromise on sound quality. “We placed them slightly angled. They could be on the wall, or far away. It still images — we’re always the king of imaging,” says Totem founder Vince Bruzzese. “Because of the phase coherence, you can shift and move the speakers as we’re doing here [during show demos], and you still get that big image.” Not only that, but deep male vocals being played were deftly reproduced, and there was absolutely no strain in the speakers with very full dynamic tracks Bruzzese played.Back to article
