Top A/V prod­ucts as se­lected by the in­ter­na­tional Ex­pert Imag­ing and Sound

As­so­ci­a­tion. Home the­ater video, home the­ater au­dio, Hi-fi, mo­bile elec­tron­ics, and more.

EISA, or the Ex­pert Imag­ing and Sound As­so­ci­a­tion, is an or­ga­ni­za­tion rep­re­sent­ing 55 spe­cial in­ter­est mag­a­zines from 29 coun­tries cov­er­ing the cat­e­gories of Hi-fi, Home The­ater Video, Home The­ater Au­dio, Pho­tog­ra­phy, Mo­bile De­vices, and In-car Elec­tron­ics. Each year, EISA ex­pert group mem­bers gather at the Kas­teel (cas­tle) den Brandt in An­twerp, Bel­gium to pre­view the lat­est prod­ucts in their re­spec­tive cat­e­gories, and to cast bal­lots on which prod­ucts are wor­thy of re­ceiv­ing the pres­ti­gious EISA award.

Once Euro­pean-based, EISA has ex­panded into a global or­ga­ni­za­tion, with mem­ber pub­li­ca­tions now lo­cated in North Amer­ica, Asia, and Aus­tralia. As a mem­ber of EISA’S Home The­ater Video and Home The­ater Au­dio groups, Sound & Vi­sion had the op­por­tu­nity to par­tic­i­pate in the vote for the 2018-2019 awards. It was an honor to par­tic­i­pate in this year’s process, which cul­mi­nated in a cer­e­mony held at the IFA con­sumer elec­tron­ics tradeshow in Ber­lin, Ger­many on Au­gust 31, 2018. The prod­ucts pre­sented in the pages that fol­low—some of which have al­ready been re­viewed by S&V such as the Denon X8500H re­ceiver on this is­sue’s cover— truly rep­re­sent the A/V state-of-art. When a prod­uct re­ceives an EISA award, you can be as­sured that its per­for­mance, de­sign, and value have been rec­og­nized not just by one pub­li­ca­tion, but by a global net­work of ex­perts.
