A look at what to expect at CE Week in New York
The Pacific Northwest Consumer Electronics Expo is scheduled to visit both Seattle and Portland next month. The industry-only event will visit Seattle June 11 and Portland June 13, both for all-day events.
The CEO of Aereo, the TV-over-Internet company that has grabbed headlines in recent months, will appear at a keynote one-on-one at the upcoming CE Week along with CEA president/CEO Gary Shapiro, CE Week's organizers announced Wednesday.
OmniMount said this week that it has added two account managers to its sales team. Eric Baker will handle the central, southeast and Latin America regions as senior territory account manager while Frank Ricatto is now senior account manager for the Northeast.
D&M Holdings' dealer and retail partners can expect to see new product lines, including headphones; fresh point-of-sale merchandising and marketing efforts.
My recent "Are there any young audiophiles?" poll drew a surprisingly strong response from under-20 audiophiles. I was hoping to hear from 20- or 30-something audiophiles, and they were well represented, but a healthy number of younger people are getting into audio! I bought my first hi-fi when I was 15, so I relate to what Sebastian5495 wrote: I'm 15 and I view myself as an audiophile.

Kenwood gave a sneak preview of its lineup to be unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show stating it will join the Pandora fray and offer 9 head units with Pandora control over an iPhone.
Pandora-controlling radios should be popular at CES in January as Alpine already stated in October that it would include the feature in many of its head units for 2011.
Kenwood USA Corp. said this week that it has launched a new Authorized Online Retailer Program, meant to set specific guidelines for those who sell Kenwood products online.
CE companies’ product planning strategies should never be subjugated to the need for price-competitiveness. And free-thinking creativity and initiative must be encouraged among engineers in CE companies, or new-product ideas cannot germinate.
