RME products take home six awards in the annual Japanese AEx (Audio Excellence Awards) 2021 and VGP Awards (Visual Grand Prix)

RME products have picked up no less than six awards in Japan this year, a market notoriously selective about specs and performance, and the home of many many high-end pro audio and hi-fi brands.

RME’s latest products picked up an AEx (Audio Excellence Awards) 2021 and five VGP Awards (Visual Grand Prix), chosen by a highly-respected group of professional reviewers from the Ongen Publishing Co Ltd – one of the most noteable publishers in Japan and proprietors of Japanese audiophile website PhileWeb.

Specialising in high-end audio and visual devices, the awards recognise RME products as the ‘best of the best’ in the Japanese Hi-Fi and Pro Audio markets.
