The Harman room was super crowded. I went there twice but could not get a chance to chat with Kevin. With them filling in their portfolio including having speakers above $5K to $10K (below the Revel Studio line), they are certainly get much more interest.

Being both friends and customers of the company, PLEASE take everything I say with a grain of salt. :)
 
I just used Shazam to discover J.S. Bach: Suite For Cello Solo No.2 In D Minor, BWV 1008-1. Prélude by János Starker & György Sebök. https://shz.am/t63061274

Revel F208Be (white towers) announced at the show ($9,000/pair). Excellent. Smooth.
 
I just used Shazam to discover In A Mellow Tone by Javon Jackson & David Hazeltine & Tony Reedus & Paul Gill. https://shz.am/t102449297

Revel F208Be. Great sax in middle. Light, smooth sound.
 
What about the Lexicon Speaker the Beolab 90 competitor?
 
I saw no trace of it. Was going to ask Kevin about it but he was too busy with other people and I did not want to take up his time. I searched online at the time but could not find any press release about it. So didn't know where it was being shown. It was not in this suite.

It was upstairs at the Hard Rock.
 
Amir, you definitely screwed up. Thank you Kal!
 
Looks like I got out-scooped by Kal! :D My future as an audio reporter is becoming dimmer and dimmer....

I was not constrained by the burden of "covering" the show and I had help from my friends. Also, that was my only report from CES.
