THE GRAND PARADE
Yes, indeed. As you parade through this special Gold issue you’ll see a collection of the best cars and audio in the Australian scene. We pick the finest cars of 2016 and re-showcase them in all their craftsmanship, customisation and tech glory. As it happens, these are among the most outrageous installs we’ve seen and all are representative of what is best in the custom car industry. Yes, there may be a lot of bling there but it’s all in the name of showcasing the vehicle and the audio kit in the best possible light. Eye candy, much? Hell yeah!
And then in our own subset within the Sound+Image Awards, the InCar Awards celebrate all the best kit, from head units encompassing all the latest technologies and smart device-mating capabilities to powerful high-end amplification, resolving speaker systems and full-on hit-you-in-the-chest subwoofers.
And as I explain in the Awards intro, we’ve reshuffled some of the categories’ price breaks in order to better accommodate products while catering to the changing market environment.
Further, in special awards, we honour the utter brilliance of a trio of outstanding products that impressed us no-end with their extraordinary design and ability to provide solutions in integration, in furthering the digital landscape across playback hardware and in placing high-resolution audio into the in-car space.
What are these, you may ask? Well, be patient, admire the amazing cars and steadily progress your way through to the last section of the magazine where all will be revealed… Ed Kramer Editor
