AVS Forum Meetup with Sound United at CEDIA 2018

If you're heading to the CEDIA Expo next week in San Diego, CA, Sound United is hosting a special event for AVS Forum members at its booth (4128) on Friday, September 7, from 5:00 to 6:00 PM. You'll get an exclusive first-hand peek at all the new products from Denon, Marantz, Classe, Polk, Definitive Technology, and HEOS as well as a private demo of a new and very exciting home-theater collaboration with a company you will certainly recognize! And all this without the huge crowds that normally clog one of the most popular booths at the show.

If you can make it to this AVS-exclusive gathering, please post a comment in this thread so we have some idea of how many people to expect. It will be a very special event at this year's CEDIA Expo, so I hope to see you there!

Is that the IMAX Enhanced technology from DTS that was discussed in the Marantz 8805 thread a few weeks ago?

Perhaps totally off-topic, but can anyone ask them if the rumours about the end of Boston Acoustics are true? I quite like my (now venerable) VR-M series and it's sad to think I won't be able to shop the brand when I next upgrade my system.

Makes sense to drop or spin off Boston Acoustics...
Sound United already have the loudspeaker brands of Polk & Definitive Technology, comes down to the marketing $ overhead of promoting a 3rd brand....
Their marketing budgets are already thin promoting Marantz, Denon & HEOS, also considering they are now paying a hefty royalty to Sonos after losing the patent battle..

Just my $0.02...

Sure. There is certainly a business case for them to not keep Boston. However, it would be nice if they made it explicit that it was for sale or shuttered. All that seems to be happening is an end of shipping product to dealers with no word on whether it is temporary or permanent (as one dealer told me). Sadly, even before this news, Boston had stopped making anything near a proper successor to the VR-M series I own for quite some time. Was (naively, I guess) hoping for a revival. Oh well. C'est la vie.
