This is the third time QSC has been recognized by musical instrument retailers as the top sound reinforcement brand, which is a reflection of the company’s efforts to maintain its reputation as a trusted supplier during a period of extraordinary turbulence.

In 2021, the ever-changing landscape of supply & demand due to volatile parts and finished goods availability, shipping and transportation bottlenecks as well as increased costs across the supply chain made for a “perfect storm” for suppliers and dealers alike. The readers of MMR recognized QSC for providing “consistency amidst the chaos” according to the December 2021 announcement.

“We are honored to accept this award in in recognition of the remarkable partnership we have with our Dealers,” states Ray van Straten, Sr. Director, Global Brand and Corporate Marketing, QSC. “One of our many obligations as a business partner is to maintain transparency and openness in our communications. Many Dealers have shared that during this period of incredible supply chain volatility, they value the free flow of information from QSC that helps them make appropriate adjustments to their businesses. Meanwhile, demand for QSC continues to grow at an unprecedented rate. That says a lot about the strength of our brand and sets the stage for an incredible 2022. We couldn’t be more grateful to our Dealers for their steadfast support.”

QSC was previously named Sound Reinforcement Line of the Year in 2019 and 2017. This year’s Dealers’ Choice Awards are featured in MMR’s December 2021 issue.
