Hot on the heels of the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2019 is the CEDIA Expo. With RMAF moving to its new location this year, and being earlier than it’s usual October dates, CEDIA comes in back to back with it in the Colorado capital, with some exhibitors staying over for both shows.

While RMAF is a real Hifi affair, with many of the systems being very High End, the focus of CEDIA is more ‘Home Tech’ and ‘Smart Home Genius’…but there is obviously a lot of crossover with many Hifi brands moving into Home Cinema, Custom Integration, streaming technologies, and voice control.

Here are just a few of the highlights that you can check out at CEDIA 2019, which is on now and running until the 14th September, at the Colorado Convention Centre in central Denver.

MartinLogan New CI Speakers At CEDIA 2019

Today, at CEDIA 2019, MartinLogan is Announcing Five New Flagship Custom Installation Speakers and Two New Distribution Systems.​

MartinLogan Masterpiece CI Series

MartinLogan has announced the new Masterpiece CI Series of custom installation speakers including the flagship Statement 40XW line source in-wall speaker, three ultimate-performance in-wall speakers, and an ultimate-performance in-ceiling speaker.

Masterpiece CI at CEDIA 2019

MartinLogan is offering attendees the opportunity to experience an immersive 9.4.4-channel demonstration of the new Masterpiece CI Series in an acoustic interior designed by the Italian company, HTE (Home Theater Environment). This demo system consists of two flagship Statement 40XW in-walls, five Monument 7XW in-walls, two Tribute 5XW in-walls, four Sistine 4XC in-ceilings, and four Dynamo 1600X subwoofers.

MDA Series

MartinLogan has also announced the new MDA Series of distribution systems. With the ever-growing popularity of whole-house and outdoor audio systems, the challenge of unlocking the performance potential of sound has only increased. Historically, when selecting distribution solutions, installers have only had access to a mix of one or two key features—web-based setup, digital inputs, equalization, or matrixing capabilities. Enter MartinLogan’s MDA. These devices deliver all of these features in one chassis and with the added benefit of Anthem Room Correction (ARC®) and bass management for adding dedicated subwoofers.

MartinLogan is in booth SR-1 at CEDIA 2019

Paradigm At CEDIA 2019

Paradigm Electronics has announced the Millenia LP Trio 3-channel passive soundbar. Measuring less than 2-inches deep when installed, the Millenia LP Trio features three S-PAL aluminum dome tweeters with patented PPA™ (Perforated Phase Alignment) lens technology and six anodized aluminium unibody cone bass/midrange drivers.

Ideal for on-wall applications, Millenia LP Trio includes a low profile wall-mount bracket. For freestanding configurations, two L brackets with adjustable feet are included to allow the speaker to sit on a shelf. A magnetically attached black grille, polished black accents, and brushed black aluminum faceplate give the Millenia LP Trio an understated look.
