Well, testing is well under way for the October issue of What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision - yes, we know, in August - and we're having long and heated debates over the merits of TVs, high-definition disc players and the like. But we've also found time to...

  • Spot the forthcoming lower-priced Sony Blu-ray player, the BDP-S300, breaking cover in an unlikely place
  • Welcome a newcomer to the UK audio scene, in the shape of French brand Advance Acoustic, with its range of amps, players and iPod-ready components
  • Reveal Sharp's plans for a massive LCD TV plant, able to produce up to a million screens a month
  • And wonder just what kind of car you'd need to want the Ministry of Sound's new pink radio/CD player

Meanwhile over in the forums, you've been asking how to spend £2250 on a CD player and amp, debating the merits of Blu-ray and HD DVD, and wondering which £440 speakers to buy. Oh, and there's a lively debate still ongoing about the merits and pricing of various 37in TVs.

Oh, and there's a new issue of What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision in the shops now. The September issue has pre/power amplifiers, small screens for second rooms, DVD recorders and first tests of Onkyo's massive TX-SR875 receiver, B&W's brand new 685 speakers and Pioneer's debut Blu-ray player, the BDP-LX70.
