We have not one, but two state-of-the-art demos to treat you with this weekend. In our main cinema room we'll be showing off a Dolby Atmos 5.2.4 system with a 4K screen, and outside the room you'll be able to hear Meridian MQA for yourself.

So if you can make it along to the show, come and join us in the Bristol Suite at the Marriott Hotel. As well as two fantastic demonstrations, the editorial team will be on hand throughout the weekend to answer your hi-fi and home cinema queries.

And we have loads of top prizes to give away, as well as a fantastic subscription offer: sign up for a print or digital magazine subscription and you'll get a free pair of Award-winning SoundMagic E10S headphones worth £40!

What's more, if you choose to join the What Hi-Fi? Club, you'll get a free two-month subscription to music streaming service Tidal.
