Surround Music Awards 2005 – Our second gallery of exclusive photographs from the SMA ceremony held in Hollywood last night… Greg Penny, who accepted last year’s High Fidelity Review Listener’s Choice Award for ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road,’ picked up this year’s Best Multichannel Reissue for another repurposed Elton John album, ‘Captain Fantastic’, in a category I hear it was almost impossible to judge the standard was so high.
Silverline President Jeff Dean accepted the Surround Horizon of the Year Award for up and coming artist Lauren Ellis’ ‘Feels Like Family’.
5.1 Entertainment engineers Gary Lux and Bob Michaels collected the Best Concert Video Award for ‘Live at the Apollo’.

Much of the success of this year’s Surround Music Awards was due to the efforts of host and co-producer Frank Wells (who also serves as Executive Editor of Surround Professional magazine), joined here by Audio Engineering Society Executive Director Roger Furness (right).
