seen some pics. They have another zen 9 but I have not heard if this is a functional model or another ces display. The amps look pretty cool but I also wonder about the design of the bottom plate and heat sink being integrated into one piece. I would think as thin as the back plate is that it would conduct heat and then radiate it up into the amp? Time will tell, but from what I have seen cool looks and it would be neat to hear them.

The only picks I've seen are reminiscent of Xtant of the 1990's. Also, 8 channel DSP? Not enough...

Here's the booth:

ImageAnd here's close ups of the ti3 line. Very sexy looking amps.

I didn't get close ups of the new SX line, they have a similar look as the d school M series, but the case is brushed black anodized and the amps themselves are class d.

The zen9 and other SX series models were in a back meeting room. It looks exactly like he previous iterations, although something tells me that this is the final version.

Oh and they changed their logo again, see the logo used in the booth this year. Still not sure about the new logo.

yea not big on the new old logo myself. The digital eq sounds interesting but one tough lesson I learned about their first DEQ was that its only good as long as they support it. Before you know it your going to need to find an old phone to connect/communicate with it...

Well it's just like most other DSPs that are out now, they use current technology. Hopefully they make software updates or it'll work with future software revisions on the control devices.

Thanks for sharing! It does feel like the old PG, complete with typo's and errors with their literature. The Ti3 1300.1 has incorrectly listed specs for 2 ohm. I can't believe no one caught that before posting at CES.

I like that they are kinda sorta starting to get away from the black box plague that has taken over the industry. I have grown tired of the lack of creativity to make anything look other then like a black box for a while now. It was cool for a little while till everyone started to do it. I have to laugh a little at the big "DESIGNED IN THE USA" MANTRA they have printed on the boards. I think they would have been better off with a cool tag-line/easter egg like they did on the previous series as telling me where it was designed really seems like your advertising where it was NOT made...
