New products were on show from Cyrus, Q Acoustics, Quad and REL, amongst others, plus there was the chance to see and hear the latest and greatest kit from a whole host of other brands, from Devialet to Tannoy.
Below we've rounded-up pictures of the best sights and sounds from the Bristol Show (you'll have to take our word for it when it comes to the sound) .

Audio Research unveiled the £900 AR M2 high-resolution audio player, which is due out towards the end of March.
Chord Electronics showed-off its new CPM 2800 MkII integrated amplifier. It takes the digital-to-analogue circuitry from the award-winning Hugo and teams it with 120 watts of power per channel. It's on sale for a cool £6690.
Cyrus brought its new Stereo 200 power amplifier to Bristol. It features a custom designed power supply and a Class D output stage.
Qobuz announced that its CD-quality streaming service would be incorporated into the Devialet Phantom wireless speaker (pictured).
We were thrilled to have a Dolby Atmos system in our What Hi-Fi? demo room. We showed-off a Dolby Atmos system, complete with a £25,000 Focal Electra speaker package in a 5.2.4 set-up - that includes four speakers in the ceiling as well as the usual surrounds. Atmos clips were shown on Sony's flagship KD-85X9505 4K TV.
Exposure revelead the new 3010S2-D integrated amplifier. The fourth version of the British company's flagship amp features six line-level inputs, new preamplifier circuitry and a power amplifier with improved transistors.
The Kudos room was dominated by the new Titan 808 floorstanders (pictured). These £20-25,000 behemoths are currently a prototype model and will replace the Titan 88. The speakers also support Linn's Exakt technology.
Something that we've seen before, but worthy of a mention nonetheless, is the Mass Fidelity Core wireless speaker system. This compact unit can be paired with several other products to create a multi-room speaker system.
We worked with Meridian to bring an exclusive demo of its new MQA file format technology to visitors to the What Hi-Fi? stand.

Quad's new Artera range of hi-fi components also made its debut. Pictured here is a CD player with a built-in pre-amp, and a matching power-amp. Each costs £1500.
Rega brought its new RX range of loudspeakers to Bristol. The range comprises the RX One bookshelf speakers and RX Three and RX Five floorstanders. They're expected to hit UK shelves this summer.

We heard of Tannoy's new Revolution XT range in January, but we finally got to see it in the flesh at Bristol.
