Companies Will Jointly Show Products at the Venetian Bassano Room # 2601

UPPER SADDLE RIVER, NJ / LONG BEACH, CA, December 29, 2016 – Two powerhouse home entertainment brands, Onkyo USA Corp and Pioneer Home Entertainment U.S.A., are partnering for CES 2017 to display some of the world’s most highly regarded and advanced home entertainment products.

“The products on display at CES 2017 clearly demonstrate the innovation and commitment to providing consumers with the features and functionality they want,” said Hiro Izutani, President of Onkyo USA Corporation. “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.”

Whole Home Audio
The trend towards wireless, whole-home audio remains a focus and both Onkyo and Pioneer will have a multitude of offerings across an array of product categories, including multi-room wireless speakers such as the Onkyo NCP-302 Wireless Multi-Room Speakers and the Pioneer MRX-3 Wireless Speaker. Both companies will also support leading wireless functionality that include FireConnect®1 and Play-Fi®1.

Surround Sound
Sound bars are 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 not disappoint. Both will be on hand with 360 degree DTS:X® and Dolby Atmos® surround sound and full 4K UltraHD including HDR 10.

Hi-Res Audio
With hi-res music continuing to make inroads with the American consumer, 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.
