Several new audio products will be on display at the show.
Pioneer and Onkyo have announced plans to showcase their latest home entertainment products at CES 2017. The lineup will include wireless speakers, headphones, soundbars, digital audio players, and more.
"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.
