  The Inaugural Los Angeles Audio Show awarded its first "Alfie" honors at a festive banquet on June 3rd, the middle day of the three-day event at LA's Sheraton Gateway Hotel. Alfies were awarded in three categories: Best of: Personal Listening, Best of: Speakers, and Best of: Electronics. In total, 23 Alfie Awards were presented to 22 different companies.

A "Blue Ribbon" panel established by The Los Angeles & Orange County Audio Society chose this year's honored products on the basis of superior technological achievement in combination with audiophile performance as individually auditioned at LAAS. The panel of judges was led by Roger Skoff, Vice President of the Society and founder of XLO Electric Co., Inc., maker of XLO cables. His fellow panel members included Chuck Bruce, EveAnna Manley, John G. Williams, Lee Scoggins, and Mary Cardas.
