The 828mkII was nominated by a panel comprised of approximately 100 prominent professionals from all areas of the audio industry, followed by a Voter's Guide and ballot appeared in the September issue of Mix Magazine. Returned ballots were directly submitted for tabulation to the certified public accounting firm of Mark Elsberg & Associates, where the winners were kept secret until their announcement at the TEC Award ceremony.
