For 31 years, the UK's biggest consumer electronics show (held in Bristol every February) has been the place to scour the latest hi-fi and AV products from the best brands in the industry.
But despite the presence of projectors and, in recent years, Dolby Atmos speakers at the show, we’ve seen a dominance of two-channel components and demos of late - it's a trend that harks back to the show’s stereo beginnings as "Hi-Fi ’87".
As the organisers, Audio T, feel the billing of ‘Sound & Vision’ is becoming a little misleading, from next year the show (which is being held between Friday 22nd and Sunday 24th February 2019) will be called The Bristol Hi-Fi Show. (Mind you, we'll no doubt still refer to it informally as The Bristol Show.)
Following its recent acquisition by Future plc, What Hi-Fi? very much hopes to remain involved as a media partner of the show.
