We were very pleased to be sharing the POTY award in the Loudspeaker category with Wilson Audio Specialties’ “Alexia”. Wilson Audio is a company we respect and we are humbled to have emerged as the overall winner. As most people know, Peter McGrath and I are close friends. We have spent countless evenings sharing music and listening to his sublime classical recordings. I want to congratulate our dear friend, Peter, on this prestigious award!

Excerpt from the POTY Overall award verbiage: “The G3 did more than merely earn JA’s respect: it gave him immense enjoyment, and effectively doubled the field of contenders for the coveted title of John Atkinson’s Retirement Loudspeaker…” – Read John Atkinson’s G3 review..
