Several new audio products will be on display at the upcoming show.

The NCP-302 is a Wi-Fi certified multi-room wireless speaker with dual 3-inch woofers and a 1-inch tweeter housed in a wood cabinet. Multi-room connectivity options include FireConnect and Play-Fi, along with music streaming support through Google Cast, AirPlay, and Bluetooth. Likewise, the speaker offers integrated support for several audio services, including Spotify, Pandora, and TIDAL. Buttons for play/pause and input select sit atop the device along with a volume knob. Outside of wireless support, the speaker also includes Ethernet and 3.5mm auxiliary inputs for wired connections. Pricing has not been detailed yet, but the NCP-302 will be available later this year in black and white.
In addition to the new NCP-302 Multi-Room Wireless Speaker, Onkyo will also demo its RZ Series THX Select2 Plus-certified 11.2-channel TX-RZ3100 Network A/V Receiver ($2,999), 9.2-channel TX-RZ1100 Network A/V Receiver ($1,999), and flagship THX Ultra2 Plus-certified 11.2-channel PR-RZ5100 Network A/V Controller ($2,399).
