Estonian speakers receive the 2015 CES “Best of Innovation” awardThe Consumer Electronics Association on 11 November awarded the Estonian speakers, called Estelon Extreme, the “Best in Innovation” award in the High Performance Home Audio and Video product category.
According to the company, Estelon Extreme is the “next step in speaker design evolution”. “Its monumental sculpture like design, standing up to two metres high, is capable of reproducing the highest quality soundscapes while the speaker itself completely disappears as the source of the sound.”
“I am extremely proud to be honoured with the “Best of Innovation” award. It gives me the energy to work even harder on my ongoing R&D projects in changing the way people listen to music,” Alfred Vassilkov, the founder and the designer of Estelon speakers, said.
Estelon, an Estonia-based high-end speaker manufacturer that was set up four years ago, is aimed at achieving aesthetic and acoustic perfection through the fusing of high art and cutting-edge science. The firm’s founder and lead engineer Alfred Vassilkov has been designing speakers for 30 years.
The CES Innovation Awards is an annual competition sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association. It is the global gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technology and have been recognising achievements in product design and engineering since 1976.
