It's that time of year again, when manufacturers remind us that their CES announcements actually result in a product for people to buy. And so Pioneer invited us along to Air Studios to see -- and hear -- its home cinema and stereo music systems. We gladly accepted the invitation, and were thoroughly looking forward to hearing some high-quality music in a place famous for making it.
Of course, Pioneer also wanted us to get excited about its new stereo audio range. That was no challenge -- as soon as our hosts turned on their new equipment we fell into slack-jawed awe. Pioneer knows how to make incredible-sounding hi-fi gear, and with the help of Air, it sounds like music should.
Crisp high end, beautifully controlled low end and more detail than you could possibly imagine. In fact, we can't help think it's better than actually being there, because unlike singers, CD players don't get tired and grumpy if you ask them to play the same song over and over again.
So, without further ado, take a look at our photos from the day. We'll be bringing you some more product-specific shots in the near future, but for now, have a look around Air Studios, and be amazed at how much love and care goes into producing amazing audio and setting up some stunning equipment.
