  • Onkyo and Pioneer are partnering for CES 2017 to display some of their latest home entertainment products.
    The two companies will have a range of new products on show, including wireless multiroom speakers, immersive audio soundbars and hi-res audio players.

    Hiro Izutani, President of Onkyo USA Corporation said “the products on display at CES 2017 clearly demonstrate the innovation and commitment to providing consumers with the features and functionality they want. From freeing consumers of traditional wires and cables, to offering whole home audio and portable hi-res music solutions, our lineup shows the depth and detail that have been the hallmark of both brands.”

    The trend towards wireless speakers and multiroom functionality continues and both Onkyo and Pioneer will have a multitude of offerings across an array of product categories, including multiroom wireless speakers such as the Onkyo NCP-302 Wireless Multiroom Speakers and the Pioneer MRX-3 Wireless Speaker. Both companies will also support leading wireless functionality that includes FireConnect and Play-Fi.

    Soundbars continue to be popular, offering a great option for mass-market consumers looking to enjoy premium sound with a simple setup and Onkyo’s SBT-A500 Network Surround Sound Bar System and Pioneer’s Elite FS-EB70 Network Sound Bar System do just that. Both will be on hand with immersive audio Dolby Atmos and DTS:X surround sound and full support for 4K Ultra HD and HDR 10.

    With hi-res music continuing to make inroads with consumers, both companies will have products geared to address this burgeoning market, including new offerings for hi-res digital audio players that include Pioneer’s next-generation XDP-300R, and a sneak-peek of its new entry level DAP. Onkyo will be displaying the next iteration of its award-winning digital audio player with the DP-X1A alongside its new entry-level model.

    Joining the digital audio players will be Pioneer’s new line of hi-res capable and Bluetooth/wireless headphones, and an early look at Onkyo’s new hi-res smartphone.
