CES 2018

Our team visits this year's Consumer Electronics Show

Crutchfield at CES

Visiting CES last year was a total blast, and this year we went back for more. Las Vegas's Consumer Electronics Show is one of the most anticipated events in the industry, so naturally, we wanted to learn more about (and play with) the latest and greatest innovations.

Check out these highlights from JR and the team's exploration of the upcoming sights and sounds of 2018. 

The team arrives!

Wireless Android Auto?

Kenwood Android Auto

Kenwood's upcoming DNX995S DVD receiver looks seriously well-appointed thanks to wireless Android Auto, Garmin navigation, and a whole lot more.

The single-DIN to beat

Alpine Halo9

Believe it or not, that's a 2" tall receiver! It just happens to have a 9" touchscreen. Alpine's Halo receiver gives new meaning to single-DIN.

Denon did it!

Denon X8500H

Denon's AVR-X8500H is the world's first 13.2-channel home theater receiver. Want to floor your neighbors with your system? This is where to start.

Take these headphones swimming

JBL Dive

Need to spice up swimming laps? Take JBL's Endurance DIVE headphones into the pool with you. They give you 1 GB of built-in storage for music files.

Take your bass out in the elements

TB Series

Kicker's weather-proof TB Series enclosed subs are rugged and ready for installation in your UTV, boat, Jeep, or just about any ride where you can fit 'em.

A better picture when backing up thanks to HDR

The best part is you don't have to wait for these next-level backup cams from Alpine — the HCE-C2600FD, HCE-C1100, and HCE-C2100RD with HDR are available now. 

The evolution of OLEDFlexible OLED

LG is taking OLED technology in a surprising direction this year — not just building bigger screens than ever but making them flexible as well.
