Audioholics is announcing a brand new Award that it will deliver to manufacturers for products that push the limits of consumer excellence and excel in their respective categories. There has been so much advancement in technology lately that it is important to highlight those products which exceed industry norms and deliver consistent excellent results to consumers, custom installers and retailers alike.
We want to announce these products to our readers early and recognize the companies who are advancing the consumer electronics industry. Out of this desire, the Consumer Excellence Awards were created.
The "Consumer Excellence" awards are given to 1 product in each of 40 subcategories. We will also award up to 2 additional "C.E. Hot Product" awards for each of the available product categories. The actual Consumer Excellence Awards will be awarded, presented and delivered to the manufacturers the third week in October.
The Criteria and Judging Process
Each product submission will be carefully examined by four members of the Audioholics staff who will individually select three top products from each subcategory, ranked from 1-3. These selections will then be compared publicly to arrive at a consensus on the award-winning products. Criteria for winning submissions include:
- Advanced audio and video technologies pushing the CE market - product and technology innovation
- Uniqueness in CE market
- Time or money-saving features, including ease of use
- Value for end-user and/or custom installer
