Sonneteer fly the British colours and many others at the Venetian Las Vegas this CES

The annual pilgrimage to CES takes place again this January and as all the major players in the Consumer Electronics Industry squeeze into buses, trains and planes, Sonneteer too take to the skys.

Showing off at the Venetian Hotel suite 29-310 from January 7th through to the 10th Sonneteer will have set up the mock renaissance room to look like a typical apartment with a luxury home entertainment system gracing it’s living and dinning room areas.

The designers, Remo Casadei and Haider Bahrani will be on hand to take questions, demonstrate the performance and even share the Las Vegas hospitality. The Sonneteer Morpheus will be on show and their recently announced range of colours will be vividly on display. New will be the eagerly anticipated Morpheus Server which will be announced properly on these news pages shortly as the razzmatazz of the show is in full voice.

Sharing the stage with Sonneteer this year will be Penaudio who are very much partners in the industry as they often share design expertise, marketing platforms and the odd vodka.

Penaudio themselves will be launching the next generation of their Ambient range as they adopt a higher end stance akin to their sister range, the famed Classic Penaudios. For more goto

Shown here are the Chronos loudspeaker which are available in a range of colours and wood finishes. The designer, Sami Pentilla voiced these using Sonneteer amplifiers such as the Alabaster and the Orton. Both of which grace Panaudio mansions.

“Customers can now enjoy a system from both Sonneteer and Penaudio and have the whole thing delivered in the colour of their choice” said Haider Bahrani in conversation with our editor. He was also reminded by Remo[Casadei] that “If customers have any interesting requirements then we can sit down with them and see how we can best meet their needs”. He was, of course, referring to the numerous colour possibilities on tap for the products.
