Hallo,

We visited Sound and Vision Manchester 2009. We would like visiting this event in 2010 again.

Is there a Sound and Vision in Manchester in 2010? If so, what is the date of the event?

Regards,

Bart

Diary filled in for this year's (what the kids call) nerdy dad's day out. Followed by a curry in Rusholme and some beers....bliss....

When you're booking in the exhibitors though guys, can you ask them to bring a greater selection of music along so that we can reduce the jazz club ambience. There is only so much acousticy woman jazz vocal smooth sax type music I can take.

Rock on!!!

Do the organisers (Audio-T) have full control over who displays at the show. Or is it a closed shop with manufacturers that supply their shops only.

Would be good if EB Acoustics displayed their wares. What do you think Ricky? I know your busy with orders at the moment, but it would be good for the Hifi fraternity to see your speakers in person.

If it's anything like the Bristol Show it's open to anyone, there was way more in the Show than Audio-T stock and categories they don't even stock (ie vinyl retailers).

Again it's something to ask the organisers - we are merely the media partner of the show (or thereabouts)...

Am I lucky or what? I will be in UK for a vacation in Oct and coincidently, it will be around the same time the show is in Manchester. Will be in UK 8 to 18th Oct. Mostly in Brighton.

Now will need to find a way to persuade the Mrs to go to the midlands for a few days. :)

Manchester in the Midlands? You'd better not say that if you come up here, the locals will set their whippets on you.

Tell her you will take her shoe shopping in Kendals and for some cocktails in the Hilton cloud 23 bar that should persuade her.

I also can not wait for the show I live about 3 miles from it, so might make day of it and with it being my birthday on the 12th well then a night. I was suppose to be working 12.00 to 24.00 sat and sun but managed to get the weekend off. So jobs a good one.

Enjoy your trip over El Hefe

You know, I was going to say something when you posted that on Wednesday, then I thought 'Nah, he must realise - perhaps it's a 28-day advance saver thing on the train tickets or something...'

yea, well, they were Advance tickets and I couldn't get a refund but I did manage to change them for the correct date, less an admin fee.

I was convinced it was this weekend - I've had it on the calendar for ages - and all references online and in the mag clearly show October, but I guess it's just word blindness.

Only reason I checked was to double check the venue, as some online references are to the show at the Marriott Hotel.

I'm just wondering. if I buy something from the Manchester Show and it's faulty when i get home or goes faulty how or who would I retutrn the product to. The reason I'm asking is I'm thinking of buying a Sonos system if there are any deals. At the gadget show they were handing out leaflets which had 10% discount from an online store. Would a similar thing happen here?

The show is run by retailers Audio-T in conjunction with Sevenoaks, with fulfillment/support from those stores. There are always decent deals to be had, too - but we rarely get info on exact offers until day before the show. Watch our blog for info!

Thanks. I've got a bit of a wish list jotted down. I'll have a root around the net the day before to get some prices to compare the deals. Some of the stuff I want though i would like buy at the show after having a chat with manufacturers. I think it's only fair on them.

on the floor plans you can see how to get about (as you would expect), but what's happening with the Galileo Suite - it seems to float in space with no way of getting to it?

I did notice that there seems to be some Altar set up for WHF with big columns and walls surrounding it. Wonder if there will be gates too?

Clickety

Ouch! I'd have thought it'd be more convenient to just wait for the next Bristol show, being in Cardiff and everything?

Thanks all. 3.5 hrs. Thats what I thought. I will only have Sunday to attend. Leave Cardiff by 10 am, arrive Manchester by 130 pm. Quick lunch. And will only have 2 to 5 pm to roam the show.

Then straight to Heathrow airport for next day flight out to Kuala Lumpur.

Attended the Bristol show in year 1999 or 2000 I think. Was living in Kent at that time. Quite a drive.

For this trip, will be in Brighton, Bath and Cardiff is the last stop. Well now, Manchester will be the last stop. :)

Well as I only live within walking distance of the show it would be a sin not to attend.

Went last year and really enjoyed it, particularly the KEF room which was showcasing a fantastic HD projector with accompanying sound system. They were playing a Fender Guitar tribute concert featuring Dave Gilmour and Gary Moore amongst many which was quite stunning.

Anyone else going?

Anyone driving to the show down the M56 there is signs around the M60 and M56 saying the motorway will be closed at the weekend, it will be wise to check before coming that way.

I was at the show bright and early yesterday 9.28am . I headed strait over to the whfi section to see if there was any freebiees for earlybirds . No as im already subscribe to the mag . However i did get the chance to meet Clare Ho La La , Yes Clare i was the hansome good looking fairly well built young chap you setup the PS3 with 3D for in the morning. Anyway good overall show, 3D tv,s was not convincing at all. Heavy glasses and way to much flicker gave me a fuzzy head for 5mins after all the 3D tv demo,s . I feel all the tv,s were not a major step up from last years philips tv . There were some excellent speaker demo rooms although i wasnt familiar with some names i am learning to the difference in sounds and what sound i like and dislike . Great show to all guys and girls

I was only lucky enough to see Dominic Dawes having a *** and coffee who was wearing a dodgy v neck and pointed lapel blazer combo. But he was probably still the best dressed bloke there.

I enjoyed the What Hi Fi 3D demo, there were a couple of people at the back who couldn't get there glasses to work due to not being in the transmittors line of view, but overall a good demo!!

I was most impressed with SONY's 3D TV range, they just look smoother and sharper than the opposition. Samsung wasn't too bad either!

I just bought a dodgy v neck, what's wrong with them?
