Home Theater Magazine 2007 RAVE Award Winners

The editors of Home Theater magazine have announced the winners of the 2007 RAVE Awards (Recognition of Audio and Video Excellence). Open to all manufacturers, the RAVE Awards, now in its fifth year, recognizes excellence in the manufacturing of superior audio and video components that have been reviewed and tested by the Home Theater staff and respected contributors over a 12-month period.

Winners were invited to attend a special awards ceremony in their honor, during the Home Entertainment 2007 Show at the Hyatt Grand Central Hotel, New York, NY on Saturday, May 12.

“The competition gets tougher each year for the Home Theater team whose responsibility it is to nominate components which they personally feel sets a new standard of reference–a product that they would love to own in their own systems,” said editor Maureen Jenson.
