Having been to many of the shows in the past I do believe this years is the most disapointing. The venue which for the motor show was brilliant turned out to be most unsuccesful. The space did not suit demo's as sound could be heard from the outside in the demo booths and in particular the Waht Hifi demo was a waste of time 2 short clips of film and a lot of time on how much the projector costs how much the speakers cost how much the screen cost etc etc. Yes all very well and good for a very small percentage of the what hifi buyers but for the average person not very impressive. Why did so many of the manufacturers stay away ? Was the space to costly or did they decide the venue was unsuitable. Saying that this years show was bigger and better made the disapointment even greater.How is it that Las Vegas or New York are huge shows and yet our show is so small it would have ALL fitted in the Samsung stand at the recent Berlin show. I look forward t the show but doubt I will visit again unless there are big improvements.
