It’s time once again for manufacturers and customers around the world to gather for CEDIA Expo – the largest residential tech and custom installation trade show in the Americas. This year, the show returns to Denver, Colorado and takes place September 7-9 at the Colorado Convention Center. After a post-pandemic return-to-form in 2022, attendance at CEDIA Expo 2023 is expected to grow to nearly 20,000 as it will be co-located with the Commercial Integrator Expo. More than 300 industry-leading manufacturers will be exhibiting including our parent company Samsung. The HARMAN Luxury Audio Group returns to CEDIA Expo 2023 with an exciting assortment of products from our portfolio of prestigious brands including JBL, JBL Synthesis, ARCAM, Revel, and Mark Levinson, all found in booth 2512 on the main show floor.

Focusing on the custom integration markets, we have designed our experience around our JBL Synthesis immersive audio systems, JBL architectural loudspeakers, and ARCAM audio/video receivers, all intended to showcase the depth of our product offerings for residential systems integration. We are bringing some new products with us this year that we think you’ll really like including a range of premium architectural loudspeakers from Revel, new distributed audio amplifiers from JBL, and our latest Wi-Fi streaming audio loudspeaker systems from JBL.

As you approach our booth, you’ll first find the new Revel PerformaBe Architectural Series on display and demonstration. This range of four premium in-ceiling and in-wall loudspeakers feature the DNA and sound quality of our award-winning PerformaBe bookshelf and floorstanding loudspeakers. These models can be used for high-resolution audio throughout the home or used standalone or mixed and matched with their bookshelf and floorstanding brethren for multichannel audio systems of the highest caliber. We’ll be playing music on a hi-fi system with the largest in-wall model powered by Mark Levinson electronics to let you hear how great they sound.

Last year we brought our newest JBL architectural loudspeakers to the market including eight models in the Stage 2 range, two models in the Stage XD range, and five models in the Studio 6 range. Those joined our existing Studio 2 models and Conceal Series of invisible loudspeakers. This year we’re expanding our portfolio with two distributed audio amplifiers that are the perfect companions to the loudspeakers. These offer an installer-friendly feature set and a choice of four-zones or eight-zones of power. Only one rack space high, these amplifiers include the ability to bridge channels for high power needs and they deliver a single brand solution from one of the most powerful names in audio. Give these a listen with Stage 2, Stage XD, Studio 6, and Conceal architectural models in our demonstration in the booth.

You’ll want to be sure and give a look and a listen to the newest members of our popular JBL Classic range including four new component audio products led by the SA550 integrated amplifier, and the incredible L42ms music system that joins the series as a smaller version of the L75ms. The L42ms and L75ms will be on demonstration as part of our Wi-Fi streaming audio loudspeakers display alongside the 4305P and 4329P Studio Monitor powered loudspeaker systems. Be sure to check out the new White Aspen finish available on the 4305P and 4329P. It gives these models a whole new look that is ideal for modern interior design aesthetics.

In addition to these new products, visit us at booth #2512 to experience our JBL Synthesis immersive audio systems, our JBL consumer soundbars, the award-winning line-up of ARCAM immersive audio AVRs, and a host of other solutions for great sound anywhere in the home. Be sure to schedule an appointment with your Luxury Audio sales representative to get the latest information on new product announcements and show specials happening at this year’s event. See you in Denver!
