And this year, as last, we'll include a Readers' Award in which you, dear readers, can vote for the product you think deserves a special 2009 What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision Award.
Last year the Sony PS3 triumphed, so who will pick up one of our famous trophies this time at our Awards ceremony on October 1st?
The shortlist of nominated products for the Readers' Award will go live on our Awards microsite from August 15th, when you'll be able to cast your vote.
In the meantime, let us know which products you think should be shorlisted for this year's Readers' Award by posting your preference on this thread.
All our 2009 Award winners will be exhibited at the Manchester Sound and Vision Show at the Renaissance Hotel on October 17th-18th. Our special Awards issue of the magazine will go on sale the following week.
