From this final short list only 23 products were chosen for awards for demonstrating their innovation and competition to the highest possible level from the entire audio industry.
James Young of sE Electronics says “We are extremely proud of this award. Many people doubted the efficacy of a product that, on the face of it, appears so simple. However 2007 has seen us win a large number of awards for the Reflexion Filter, and sales now top 30,000 units. It is one of the most successful products in the audio industry during 2007, and sales continue to grow coming into 2008 as more and more people find it an invaluable tool in project studios, commercial recording studios, broadcast, voice over and many other areas.”
He continues “it is a resounding endorsement of the Reflexion Filter that it is not only hugely popular product, but has also now gained the highest critical acclaim… a rare thing in our industry.”
