TONEAudio Magazine forges the link between music and high quality audio reproduction with a 50/50 balance between the two. Their December 2012 issue contains the annual “Product of the Year” list which we are proud to be part of. Read the full review here.
In the publisher’s letter, Jeff Dorgay says, “Listening to music on a great hi-fi system is one of my life’s greatest pleasures and I’m guessing you value your ever-fleeting free time as much, if not more, than I value mine… When I started TONE, my goal was to help readers assemble a great stereo system, whether they had a thousand dollars or a million dollars to spend (or wherever they might fall in between the poles of that continuum.) Make no mistake: Everything we review is gear that we feel is worth your time to investigate. If it’s not something we’d be interested in owning, we let it fall by the wayside.”
TONEAudio Awards 2012
“This past year has been an intriguing one, with excellent products throughout the price spectrum. The select components featured here are those most deserving of another look. Beyond our overall Product of the Year, which is a very expensive pair of speakers, the only other speaker we give an award to is in the Budget Speaker category. We felt it would be somewhat redundant to make a mega speaker our Overall Product of the Year and then give a Product of the Year award to another speaker.
Our awards are divided into Product of the Year Awards, for gear that redefines a category regardless of price, and Publisher’s Choice Awards, which are my “teacher’s pet” picks. PC awards are located on our website in the “Awards” Section. And we’re already starting to think about 2013!”
