A New Year gift for ICEheads! Helix and Brax are here!!!

Discussion in 'In Car Entertainment' started by Linea-Lover, Jan 6, 2012.

  1. It all started the day we bought our T-Jet+. When it came to ICE, both of us wanted it to sound brilliant and have a subwoofer, come what may. Well, the reason being that we never had one in any of our cars so this time it had to be there! After a lot of researching and discussing on forums, we managed to shortlist the equipment and got down to sourcing them.

    Which wasn't all that easy because, firstly, they were not-so-cheap imported equipment and secondly, they weren't being distributed in India. The procurement exercise done, we got the ICE installed and in the process, became deeply involved and passionate about it. So when my wife suggested we make it our business, I agreed with enthusiasm! An opportunity to mix business with pleasure should never be missed, after all.

    Thus started our search for a company whose products are good, reliable and cater to the various segments of the audiophile market, depending upon the individuals budget and requirements. We came across Audiotec Fischer who manufacture the brands Helix and Brax. Their products are state of the art, made in Germany with hand picked components and are extremely under-rated for their performance.

    It all worked out and our business plan convinced them, I guess. So here we are now. Finally, we have been appointed as their sole distributor in India, for both Helix and Brax range of products :dancing.




    We want to be able to bring good, quality products to be available and within reach of everyone who desires and loves good music in their cars.
  2. To start with we will be launching the Esprit, Precision and Competition from the Helix range.

    Are you getting down the Helix Competition Conductor head unit as well? I have tried so hard to get my hands on the legendary Ural platform (on which the HCC is based) earlier, but just couldn't. Now if you are getting the HCC down, that's the only reason that would motivate me to tamper with the stock look of the dash!!!
