SHARON, MA, Nov. 21, 2007 - Lenbrook America, exclusive U.S. importer of QED, the leading British specialist cable brand, is pleased to announce that QED has won two prestigious awards by What Hi -Fi Sound & Vision, including Product of the Year for QED's best -selling Silver Anniversary XT Speaker Cable. The second award, for Best Digital Audio Cable, was presented to QED's Performance Digital Audio Cables. What Hi -Fi Sound & Vision is the United Kingdom's leading magazine devoted to home entertainment.


"The What Hi -Fi Sound & Vision Awards are the U.K. consumer electronics industry's equivalent of the Oscars," said Lenbrook America President Bob Brown. "Winners are selected by a panel of expert journalists renowned for their acuity and integrity. The awards are the subject of vigorous competition between the manufacturers and distributors of the nominated products. They are recognized internationally, and are both highly prestigious and commercially valuable, as award -winning products typically enjoy a substantial increase in sales."

"Winning the Product of the Year award for cable yet again is an extraordinary achievement," continued an elated Mr. Brown. "QED has won this valuable prize in eight out of the last nine years, a clear recognition of QED's efforts. I congratulate the entire QED team."

British television star John Culshaw, who served as guest of honor at the What Hi -Fi Sound & Vision ceremony, presented the awards, which were collected for QED by Managing Director Glenn McClelland. "We promise to never become complacent," said Mr. McClelland. "We are committed to developing and improving our products to ensure they always remain at the very top of their class."

The Silver Anniversary XT Cable, from QED's Reference line, is widely recognized as an unbeatable high -end value, with superb performance and an impeccable form factor for hi -fi and home theater applications. It features QED's exclusive Aircore™ technology for superb transparency, dynamics and control.

What Hi -Fi Sound & Vision has presented its awards annually since 1984. QED won its first award in 1986 and, in the face of intense competition, has been a consistent winner ever since. During the last decade, QED has received more What Hi -Fi Sound & Vision awards than any other brand.
