Episode 45 of ‘The AV Life’ was the CEDIA 2017 preview show, and here we bring you the special extended post-show episode with four people who will give you their perspectives of the big show in San Diego, a success according to all. Our Crew members Katye McGregor Bennett, who hosts this one, and Alan Brawn were there and they add their perspectives as well.

After Corey announces some of those great @The_AVLife Twitter followers, Katye starts up with (as is the norm on all trade show related episodes) the craft beer talk and all (or most) on the show talk about theirs. One person became the designated podcaster (again), tune in to the conversation. Next Katye talked with all of the guests about their thoughts concerning the show including what impressed them.

In the midway, Corey talks about a giveaway promotion for listener/Twitter followers of ‘The AV Life.’ If you’re a foodie who also loves your coffee (and beer), listen in for this one. Katye then has the guests talk about their own experiences at the show in the second part.

Make sure you stay around till the end as Alex talks about the new iOS 11, and Taft talks about how Siri really feels about him. We give Siri a bit of a challenge and we’ll have Alex report in next time to let us know how it went. Then there’s this new church… you just have to hear this.

CEDIA 2017 was no doubt action packed for our guests: wins Best New Product for Josh Micro (pictured in article), and Alex Capecelatro honored as Young Professional of the Year at CEDIA:
