Welcome Join us for the UK’s biggest and best hi-fi show! One of the big talking points at CES last month was the emergence of Ultra HD (4K) as one of the key tech trends for 2014 – and the relative absence of new OLED screens. To save you a trip to Las Vegas, we’ve got our hands on LG’s large 55in curved OLED TV and a big-screen 4K (nonOLED) set, so you can compare the two technologies side by side here at the Bristol Sound & Vision Show. Elsewhere around the show you’ll find 160+ exhibitors showing off everything from Naim’s amazing £125,000 Statement pre/power amp combo to a gorgeous 25th anniversary turntable from Wilson Benesch. There will be exclusive launches galore, fabulous prizes to win in our £10k show competition and of course some great bargains to be had if you decide to snap up one of the tempting show offers. And don’t forget to visit the What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision team in the Bristol Suite, where you can experience our ultimate home cinema demo, quiz our experts and join the What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision Club. Andy Clough, Editor-in-Chief, What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision

Competition! £10K of prizes to be won! Here’s your chance to win: Arcam irDAC and FMJ A19 amp; B&W P7 headphones; Dali Zensor 5.1 speaker package; Monitor Audio ASB-2 soundbar; Sony BDVN7100W Blu-ray system; Wharfedale Diamond 121 hi-fi speakers; ... and much more!
