Red Dot Award for KSL product design.

The d&b KSL System has been making a name for itself with its acoustical performance, and has now attracting attention for its design. The latest addition to the SL-Series has been awarded one of the most coveted international seals of quality for good design, the "Red Dot Award: Product Design 2019".

In an on-site evaluation marathon with around five thousand five hundred entries, forty international experts from the Red Dot Jury based in Essen, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, determined the best products created every year. Evaluation criteria included degree of innovation, functionality, ergonomics, durability, self-explanatory quality and ecological compatibility. The Red Dot Award: Product Design dates back to 1955, and appraises the design quality in forty eight categories every year.

In 2014, d&b audiotechnik received a Red Dot Award for the first time for the D80 amplifier. The well-bred amplifier is once again a trusted accomplice for realizing the full potential of the KSL System, which has now also been awarded with a Red Dot.

The Red Dot is already the second design award for the SL-Series, which includes KSL as well as its ground-breaking sister GSL. In 2018, GSL was awarded the "Focus Open Gold", the international design award conferred by the state of Baden-Württemberg, Germany.

d&b constantly endeavours to elevate the quality of sound and make systems as easy to use as possible. Outstanding design contributes significantly to the benefits d&b customers derive from investing in d&b systems and solutions.
