Two EISA awards for Audiotec Fischer

Every year, the Expert Imaging and Sound Association – a community of online and print journalists of 60 technology magazines from 29 countries meeting in expert groups to discuss hi-fi, home cinema, photo and video, in-car and mobile electronics – comes together to hand out the prestigious EISA Awards. Considering this concentrated competence, we are particularly proud to repeatedly receive two of the coveted industry awards. 

"The fact that, once again, two of our products were honored with the EISA Award this year makes us very proud. It shows us that our constant striving for innovation and the continuous improvement of our products for the perfect in-car sound experience pays off. We would like to express our sincere thanks to the Expert Imaging and Sound Association and are extremely grateful for the appreciation they have shown us."
