The best audio and visual gear was announced by EISA (European Imaging and Sound Association) earlier this week.
EISA is a prestigious award system run via editors of 50 special interest magazines in 19 European countries.
Here are some highlights chosen by Witchdoctor gurus:

+ Desktop Speakers = Bowers & Wilkins MM-1
“Turn your computer into a hi-fi system by adding a dynamic set of active speakers… They are not inexpensive, but the sound quality easily justifies the cost.”
+ Sound Station = Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air
“B&W’s new ‘Air’ version boasts improved sound quality and enhanced flexibility.”
+ HT Universal Player = Cambridge Audio Azur 751BD
“A one-stop platform to play all CD, DVD, SACD, DVD-A and Blu-ray discs, including 3D.”
+ Loudspeaker = JBL Studio 190
“Sounds powerful, dynamic and detailed… exotic appearance, easy to drive.”
+ Video Projector = JVC DLA-X7
“To get fully immersed in the 3D realm you need a big picture and JVC’s DLA-X7 does this with room to spare.”
+ Network Music Player = Musical Fidelity M1 CLiC
“A comprehensive unit which funnels internet radio and music files from a variety of sources – including wired and wireless networks and USB sticks, CD players and even analogue sources.”
+ High-End Audio = Nagra 300i
“Famous for its precision audio engineering, Nagra introduced a hybrid tube amp that breathes new life into the classic 300B triode valve.”
+ Blu-ray Player = Sony BDP-S780
“As the first Sony Blu-ray player to benefit from an all-Sony chipset, the BDP-S780 succeeds in offering a new level of performance at an entry level price.”
+ LCD TV = Sony Bravia KDL-55HX920
“Black level is deep… Super Bit Mapping Video… 3D capability…”
