I always enjoy smaller, regional events such as the Los Angeles Audio Show, which debuted this weekend at the Sheraton Gateway Los Angeles Hotel, because they often include littler companies that would likely get lost in the noise (literally and figuratively) at the big national and international shows. I found several interesting new speakers at LAAS, from conservatively engineered models to some of the most interesting designs I’ve ever seen. As with my electronics article, I focused on smaller companies here because we’ve covered most of the big-name launches in our CES and High End reports. All prices in USD.
Markaudio-Sota’s new Cesti MB ($1195/pair) was intended mostly as a professional monitor speaker, but I’m betting it’ll also find use in home stereo systems and as left, center, right, and surround speakers in small home theaters. The 4.5” full-range driver delivers a rated response of 40Hz to 20kHz.
