Sound & Vision – The Bristol Show next month

The Bristol Show badge blue 2018It soon whips around, doesn’t it? In just over a month’s time, one of my favourite Hi-Fi shows will be underway. It is, of course, what is lovingly referred to as The Bristol Show.

Sound & Vision runs from February 23rd (or 23th according to the logo) to the 25th and is held at the Marriott City Centre Hotel, Castle Street, Bristol.

The show is a fantastic opportunity for Hi-Fi fans world-wide to see, hear and experience huge range of components from over 181 different brands.

Listening to music at home is one of life’s great pleasures, but many consumers think that good sound starts and stops with mass-advertised brands like Bose and Sonos. However, in the same way that the car industry has BMW, Alfa, Audi etc and watches have Rolex, Omega and more, the Hi-Fi industry has a wide selection of brands that go over and above in performance, without costing the earth.

At The Bristol Show you will be able to enjoy products from a £1.00 record sleeve to £50,000 headphones.

Why attend The Bristol Show?

The Bristol ShowBeing held so early in the year, many brands choose The Bristol Show to launch new products. This is an excellent way to be one of the first to see and hear new kit.

It is also a selling show. This means that there’s always bargains to be had.

Hopefully I will be able to give you the heads-up on launches nearer the time.
