Krix Announces 2020 Dealer Awards
One of the highlights for industry members each year and for those fortunate enough to be part of the 'Krix family', is the Adelaide-based company's annual dealer conference.
StereoNET has been fortunate to be invited along as a guest in previous years, and the events have been thoroughly enjoyable (legendary even!). It offers an insight into the Krix company and culture, an awards dinner, and usually includes a tour of the regions finest wineries and craft breweries. It's always a tough gig, and all in the name of work, of course!
Krix Annual Dealer Conference in pre-COVID times (2018)
Sadly, like all the good things of 2020, this year's event had been forced into the virtual realm, thanks to these COVID times. But that won't put a downer on the recognition of this year's highest performing Krix dealers, nor will it dilute the passion the brand's dealers all share for this hugely successful Australian brand.
Krix 2020 Virtual Dealer Event
From humble beginnings over 45 years ago making speakers for friends and family as the Acoustic Foundry in Goodwood, Adelaide, the Krix family have nurtured the company into a globally respected loudspeaker brand.
Not even border closures will dampen the spirits of Sydney Hi-Fi Mona Vale when it comes to Krix.
StereoNET would like to congratulate the Krix Dealer Award winners for 2020.

Each time StereoNET reviews a product, it is considered for an Applause Award. Winning one marks it out as a design of great quality and distinction – a special product in its class, on the grounds of either performance, value for money, or usually both.
Applause Awards are personally issued by StereoNET’s global Editor-in-Chief, David Price – who has over three decades of experience reviewing hi-fi products at the highest level – after consulting with our senior editorial team. They are not automatically given with all reviews, nor can manufacturers purchase them.
The StereoNET editorial team includes some of the world’s most experienced and respected hi-fi journalists with a vast wealth of knowledge. Some have edited popular English language hi-fi magazines, and others have been senior contributors to famous audio journals stretching back to the late 1970s. And we also employ professional IT and home theatre specialists who work at the cutting edge of today’s technology.
We believe that no other online hi-fi and home cinema resource offers such expert knowledge, so when StereoNET gives an Applause Award, it is a trustworthy hallmark of quality. Receiving such an award is the prerequisite to becoming eligible for our annual Product of the Year awards, awarded only to the finest designs in their respective categories. Buyers of hi-fi, home cinema, and headphones can be sure that a StereoNET Applause Award winner is worthy of your most serious attention.
