Happy 2014 to the CA readers around the world! CES starts Tuesday January 7, 2014 and runs through Friday the 10th. As usually there will be thousands of new products announced at the show. I'll be covering as much of the event as possible, focussing Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday on the high performance audio sections and Friday focussing on the main convention center where all the computer related products and mainstream consumer electronics are on display.
It's easy to get jaded after attending several audio and electronics shows, as evidenced by many writers complaining about the lines, the bad sound, the "hassle" of running from hotel to hotel, etc… However, we shouldn't forget these are first world "problems" that many people would love to experience. I'm looking forward to CES more than ever. I love technology, audio, music, computers, and the amalgamation of all of it into the next phase of high end computer audio. This is a major reason I got into the business. I live for this stuff. In November 2007 when I launched Computer Audiophile I dreamed of covering CES and writing about new products. I look forward to living this dream once again in a few days.
Without further ado, here is a list of some products I'm looking forward to seeing at CES this year.
