Marriott in Denver

The start of holiday prep is a special time for the audio media. The inboxes the world over fill with press releases, much travel takes place and products start shooting out into the market faster than consumers can yell “Take My Money!” By the time this post hits the airwaves IFA Consumer Electronics Unlimited in Berlin will just have wrapped and CEDIA (Custom Electronics Design and Installation Association) in San Diego will be well underway.
