One name that stands out in that list of late arrivals is Sony. The company's European Technical Marketing Manager, Eric Kingdon, will be promoting Blu-ray Disc at the show with a demonstration using the Bravia KDL-70X3500 70in LCD TV, which should be well worth seeing

We'll also be there, with another top-notch demo room for you to enjoy, as well as an advice desk where you can pick the review team's brains about absolutely anything from the world of hi-fi and AV.

Doors are open from 10am to 5pm every day, and tickets are £8 for adults and £4 for students and senior citizens - accompanied children under 16 are free. Head to the show website for more info. See you there.
