Pioneer's BDP-95FD Blu-ray player may have been just one of the many fine looking devices at the outfit's fine looking exhibit, but considering that it was just unveiled hours ago, we figured we'd give it additional attention. As you'd probably guess, this Elite gizmo lived up to its branding (at l...

As if Pioneer's booth wasn't sensational enough already, the inclusion of the brand new BDP-95FD Blu-ray player made it even sweeter. Make no mistake, Pioneer is awfully proud of this creation, as an on-site rep was claiming that it was "the best Blu-ray player on the market" while bragging to onlo...

If you appreciate booths done right, you'll be a fan of Pioneer. This installation was easily the most attractive (in our eyes, at least) at CEDIA, and if you dig Elite KUROs, snazzy flat-panel speaker systems, AV receivers with 1,400-watts of power and lots of black, why not give the gallery a onc...

S Sony had size, Sharp had a ginormous LCD, and Panasonic had a virtual fireplace, but Pioneer's booth took the award for sexiest -- if that's even possible. Pioneer's exhibit was doused in glossy black accents and showcased quite a few beautiful devices, including a couple Elite KURO plasmas, HTS-L...

For all things HD DVD, there were two places to go: Toshiba's booth, and the HD DVD big rig parked right across the street. This interesting exhibit didn't present anything new per se, but there were a number of banners for current and upcoming releases, an HD DVD wall of films, and a few demo stat...

If you haven't taken a complete look at Alienware's CEDIA booth, well, you didn't miss much, but the sparklin' new Hangar18:HD was out on display, and we took a few to get a closer look. Upon initial inspection, we found that this beast was unusually heavy -- like, "you run it over with a car witho...

The only notable machine from Alienware that made the trip to Denver was the Hangar18:HD, and yes, this thing looks just as swank in person as it does in the press shots. Of course, you may have to reinforce your AV cabinet before plopping this hefty machine down, but hey, at least you know its bui...

Alienware was just barely at CEDIA, but it did a respectable job with the ridiculously small amount of square footage it was granted. So if you're craving a look at the firm's Hangar18 (and the Hangar18:HD), hit up the gallery right over here.

Alienware's "booth" was more like three tables, a few machines and a whole heap of wires, but considering that there were a few Hangar 18's set up with twin ATI TV Wonder Digital Cable Tuners and a couple of those sexy new Hangar18:HDs, it was definitely worth checking out. 'Course, that silver rig...

Honestly, we were somewhat surprised by the magnitude of Klipsch's booth at CEDIA, but it made sure every square inch was well utilized. A variety of speaker families were all out for us to see, including the KlipschCast wireless lineup, the Icon series, and of course, the firm's ultra-elegant Pall...

Denon's booth rocked the same subtle, simplistic style that its laid-back array of gizmos always seem to, and while it only took a moment to get from one side to the other, 'twas a satisfactory experience nonetheless. Check out the gallery in full right here.

Nah, Denon's futuristic Blu-ray player / receiver concept didn't show up at CEDIA, but a whole host of other players, speakers, and receivers sure did. Among the highlights were the S-52 wireless multi-zone music system, the ASD-3N iPod / Network Client Dock, and racks of home theater gear we could...
