The XDP-100R is already available in some overseas markets (most notably in Japan, where enthusiasm for hi-res audio is very healthy) but now the player is available for us nephews and nieces of Uncle Sam.

Have you heard of Riva Audio? Yeah, me neither—until earlier this evening when I attended a press reception in the Riva Audio suite at the Westgate Hotel in the midst of all the craziness that is CES. Riva currently offers two extremely well-reviewed models of portable, rechargeable, Bluetooth speakers: the water-resistant Turbo S and the larger, more powerful Turbo X. (You can read Lauren Dragan’s review of the Turbo X here. But that’s just the beginning for the young company, because Riva plans to introduce a wireless, multiroom speaker ecosystem later this year.

Back in the day, canaries would be carried down into mine tunnels to warn of any dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide. When the canary died, you knew it was time to get the heck out of dodge. This modern Canary is designed to protect your house while you’re away and notify you of any break-ins.

Design Screen's incredibly innovative projection screen folds into a piece of art when not in use.

You’ve heard it a hundred times before…”All HDMI cables are the same.” Essentially, if you can see an image on the screen that is lacking in sparklies, or doesn’t flash in-and-out, then your HDMI cable is every bit as good as it needs to be. Well, Marseille is looking to change the game with its new mCable, the only HDMI cable that is designed to improve picture quality.

A photo shot with a point and shoot camera, viewed on your computer monitor can't really convey how fine this LG Signature 77-inch flat screen OLED looks in the flesh, but this shot from a short NASA video used for demonstration gives you a fair idea.

String together three of Samsung's 27-inch curved widescreen computer monitors and what do you get? An immersive gaming experience if the game itself is designed for it.

LG's version of widescreen gaming placed three 21:9 curved monitors side by side...

Both Samsung and LG were showing huge 8k displays (Samsung's is shown here) and drawing crowds (I couldn't get near enough to LG's to shoot a photo!). While clearly technological demonstrations (with 16 times the resolution of 1080p "Full HD,") someone in Korea thinks this would be a nifty idea. But on the size sets most people buy, I'm not at all sure, apart from the Wow factor at a CES.

I have no idea why this company does, apart from some form of data storage, but clearly there are arch villains and Minions involved.

For those who can't position a video projector in the usual locations, LG offers the Mini Beam PF1000U at $1399. Said to offer 1000 lumens, it can be positioned close to the screen or a suitable wall as shown here.

Like many demos CES, this 2.35:1 (21x9) “scope” curved LCD widescreen Ultra HD design was likely brought in to test its commercial viability with the army of retailers who attend CES. According to the information I received, however, TCL (a Chinese company) does plan to distribute it in Hong Kong, at least initially...

Blue Microphones is well known as a maker of - you guessed it - microphones. It’s been in that business for 20 years. It has more recently entered into the headphone market with the Mo-Fi powered headphones and has now debuted the Lola headphone.

Vinyl has made a big comeback and is everywhere at this year’s CES. Audio-Technica has brought the experience of playing records into the twenty-first century with the addition of Bluetooth to its AT-LP60-BT Bluetooth turntable.
