BEST: Sony Symphonic Light
On paper, Sony's Symphonic Light sounds like a gimmick wrapped in a doodad. But this combined LED light and built-in speaker is easily one of the most beautiful products at CES, and proof of what Sony is capable of when it takes its designers off the leash. The light’s vertical-firing speaker tech sends audio into the glass, and then outward to fill your living space. Of the two models planned, the ceiling-mounted pendant sounded better during a demonstration, particularly when grouped in a cluster of synched light-speakers. Sony won't say when it will be released, or for how much, but the company insists that the Symphonic Light isn't a PR stunt — it's a real product.
