During the Sound & Vision Show held in Bristol on 21-23 February, The Clarity Alliance ran the second of its annual “Best of Show” awards to reward the efforts put in to the show by the exhibiting companies and help raise the profile of the winners and show among the hi-fi buying public. Also announced was the first of its Honorary Fellowship awards, which went to John Dawson of Arcam.
Judges from Clarity visited every room at the show in order to select those companies they felt should be recognised for their outstanding contribution. The winners were presented with their awards on the Friday evening, at a packed awards ceremony, enabling them to then proudly display them to the show visitors over the weekend.
Chosen after very careful consideration and consultation by the judges were the following companies:
“Best Sounding Hi-Fi Room’ – Naim Audio
“Best Home Cinema Room” – Arcam
“Best Presented Room” – AudioQuest
“Most Innovative Room” – Monitor Audio
“Best Stand in Open Areas” – The Chord Company
