Featured Guests: All BAS Members in Attendance at CES

Meeting Topic: CES Reports

The January meeting of the BAS will feature the annual "CES Report" by BAS members in attendance at the 2002 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Local BAS attendees at the show were Phyllis Eliasberg, Alvin Foster, and Brad Meyer. They will report on what they saw and the best sound at the show. There will be plenty to discuss, lots of pictures, brochures and samples to pass around. The CES Report is one of our most popular meetings of the year.

CES continues to tilt or emphasize more of the video scene; however, the push to buy and introduce more computers at CES has declined. The drive for more speakers and amplifiers to obtain even more channels continues in fast-forward. In spite of COMDEX's low attendance, this year's CES had good attendance and a lot of new and interesting audio & video stuff.

Some very good (and some very bad) loudspeakers, including some whose reasonable prices and sizes make them appealing for real-life home use

Digital room-correction and speaker-correction systems

Other things of interest outside of audio included high-definition television in direct-view, flat-panel, rear-projection, and front-projection formats. The DLP is even more sophisticated and the choice of the best viewing model has narrowed to three brands. Join us to find out some of the items you may include in your Christmas stocking next December.
