Visitors to the Manchester Home Entertainment Show in October will be the first to see our 2010 Award winners

We'll be heading north to Manchester for the weekend of October 16th-17th – that's in just nine days time – for the annual Home Entertainment Show, organised by Audio T in association with Sevenoaks and What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision.

Visit the show and you'll be the first to see all our 2010 Award winners which will form an integral part of our display. You'll also be able to watch our state-of-the-art 3D demo, and the test team will be on hand throughout the weekend to answer your hi-fi and home cinema queries.

What's more, there will be hundreds of new products on display, great discount deals and some fabulous prizes to be won in the show competition.

The big story this year will be 3D TV: at least four of the big TV makers will be showing their home 3D kit. Music streaming will also be big news: you'll get to see how far the hi-fi industry has caught up and is now turning out cutting-edge tech.

Streaming systems, wireless multiroom, and products designed to take your music and make it sound even better – it will all be on display, with 74 exhibiting brands confirmed so far. Highlights include the world launches of Arcam's long-awaited BDP-100 Blu-ray player, B&W's CM8 floorstanding speaker and KEF's new Q Series.
