Bristol Show
There are discounts galore at the Bristol Sound and Vision Show, which opens today, and we've a state-of-the-art demo for you too

The doors have opened for the first day of the Bristol Sound and Vision Show, and our demo room and advice centre is up and running.

So what do we have in store? Well, the centrepiece of our demo is Panasonic's giant TH-103PF9 plasma screen, worth a cool £40,000. Feeding that is a £1600 Denon DVD-3800BD Blu-ray player and Toshiba Qosimo G50 laptop worth £2000.

Sound is reproduced by a Meridian G68 sound controller (£4888) linked to four Meridian DSP7200 active speakers (£17,122 a pair) and a centre speaker the size of a fridge. Oh, and a subwoofer for good measure.

We'll be demonstrating just how fabulous Blu-ray discs can look and sound on such a system, and experimenting with PC-based audio played off the Toshiba laptop. Come and join us on the What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision stand in the Bristol suite if you can.
