See and hear the ultimate Blu-ray system at the What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision Show

The van is unpacked, the stand is built and we're running the final tests on our demonstration room here at ExCel as we gear up for the start of the What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision Show at 10am this morning.

So what do we have in store? Well, we've assembled some of the finest home cinema kit on the planet, including the brand-new Avielo by projectiondesign DLP, 1080p projector, Denon's superb DVD-2500BT Blu-ray transport, our reference Classé multichannel processor and power amps and a whole stack of B&W CT800 Series speakers.

The system produces breathtaking high-definition sound and vision, with 1080p Blu-ray pictures in all their glory and uncompressed multichannel sound that'll blast you out of your seat.

Demos will be run regularly throughout the day on the What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision stand, so make sure you don't miss one of the highlights of the show.

There'll be lots of new product launches to check out too, and we'll be reporting live from the show on throughout the weekend.

And don't forget, we'll be giving away many of our 2008 Products of the Year in our exclusive show competition. Prizes lined up so far include two Sky+ HD boxes, Roksan's Kandy K2 stereo amplifier (£750), KEF's KHT3005SE surrround speakers (£1000), NAD's Viso 5 home cinema system (£900), Klipsch's Image in-ear headphones (£200), a Tannoy Revolution 5.1 speaker package (£2300), Denon's D-M37 micro system (£300), Cyrus's CD6SE CD player (£800), two of Pure's Evoke Flow DAB/internet radios (£150) and Yamaha's YSP-40D soundbar (£800).
