Cool i live in manchester and went for the first time to any sound and vision show last year .not knowing what to expect as a noob OMG i was mind boggled with all the demos . Just a brill.... all round day out
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.
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.
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.
ah bobbins, i live in manchester and just realise i fly out to turkey on the friday night. enjoy yourself anybody that gets the chance to go as its a great day out (if last year was anything to go by) and a brilliant experience seeing and hearing all the lovely kit under one roof.
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.
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.
El Hefe:Aaaaaaah finally arrived brighton at 9 pm last nite after a long 13 hrs flight from malaysia. Lovely weather yesterday. 1 week to go before going to the show. Cant wait.
Enjoy your hols....
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
