All the TV & AV win­ners in full...

Sound+Im­age joined EISA this year as part of the group’s ex­pan­sion be­yond Europe — where bet­ter to start than Aus­tralia! Two US mag­a­zines were also en­rolled — Stereophile and Sound & Vi­sion, mak­ing a to­tal of 53 mag­a­zines in 25 coun­tries tak­ing part in the vot­ing process that de­cides the fi­nal EISA Award win­ners, which were an­nounced at a gala din­ner in Ber­lin on 1st Septem­ber, timed to take place dur­ing IFA.

EISA has been care­ful in check­ing equip­ment that might vary in dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions, in­clud­ing Aus­tralian model num­bers where avail­able; one no­table case is TCL’s win­ning TV, which has a JBL sound­bar at­tached in Europe but a har­man/ kar­don one here in Aus­tralia, even though the TV por­tion is iden­ti­cal. We re­view that very TV this is­sue any­way, so you have a sec­ond way to judge its lo­cal per­for­mance.

Some oth­ers may have mi­nor vari­a­tions on the Euro­pean ver­sions, but we were pleased to find that our own views co­in­cide closely with those of our new mainly-Euro­pean col­leagues, and we be­lieve our EISA mem­ber­ship will bring a new source of ideas and ex­per­tise to our Aus­tralian read­ers.

So here are the win­ners from the two Au­dio Vis­ual Ex­pert Groups, with all other EISA awards listed in brief — a full feast of top tech.
