In a poll of visitors conducted by Chester Group at the 2011 Audio AV Show held at the Marriott Hotel in Melbourne, visitors voted SGR Audio and Kyron Audio joint best sound in the show.
SGR Audio spared no expense with an impressive display in the largest single exhibit at the show. The Melbourne manufacturer, according to a majority of the nearly 5000 visitors who attended the event, which was held over the weekend of Friday 21 October through to Sunday 23 October, delivered superlative sound. No mean feat considering the wonderful systems and iconic brands displayed and auditioned in over fifty rooms and three floors of the hotel. Among the models that SGR featured were the CX Range, the MT range and the flagship model, The Illuminator. One comment overheard was …”you could just hear the beautiful music and after all isn’t that what it’s all about?”
Kyron Audio’s display was in a much smaller demonstration suite, but the sound, although delivered via a less traditional technology as featured in the Gaia Dipole Loudspeaker System, had many visitors and industry experts singing their praises. Comments included, “… the sound was quite spectacular – flawless, airy and detailed… a speaker that is both stylish in appearance and superlative in performance”.
