The Future At Your Fingertips

Heightened expectancy is justified: the home entertainment industry remains highly productive, upbeat and buoyant amid choppy economic conditions. To our great delight, there is no better indication of this than the success of this year’s hi-fi shows around the world; no better barometer of what we can anticipate in September. CES in Las Vegas, shows in New York, Bristol, Frankfurt, have all reported record attendance and an abundance of new products. But because Hi-Fi Show 2001 in London is the largest, most widely-covered and most important ‘open-to-the-public’ home entertainment show in the world, we’re looking forward to even greater things.

It’s not just the global success of other shows in 2001 which has fired our enthusiasm: we are now at a point where home theatre is a mature technology, where the UK has become a valid market for custom install (with no small thanks to CEDIA UK), and where the dust is settling on the audio industry’s newest formats. Whatever has plagued SACD and DVD-Audio in the past, these problems are behind us. At last, there is sufficient hardware to tempt consumers, with Pioneer, JVC and others producing affordable and versatile DVD-Audio players, while Sony, Marantz and Philips have ensured that SACD players are available at all price points. Better still, the software is flowing, and the growth in popularity of surround sound has enhanced the appeal of both SACD and DVD-A, as the two formats feature up to six channels of sound.

DVD, of course, continues to attract ever-increasing numbers of videophiles. With the number of Region 2 titles having increased to more than satisfactory levels, the DVD-Video format is now firmly established as the audio-visual medium of choice.

Already booked and raring to go with dazzling displays of new, mouth-watering components are Absolute Sounds, Audiofreaks, Castle, Chord, JVC, Linn, Musical Fidelity, Naim, Path Premier, Pioneer, Marantz, REL, Sony, Tannoy, UKD and a host of other exhibitors representing a huge number of brands. With vastly increased media presence, completion of the improvements at Novotel, the public’s escalating sophistication in understanding and enjoying home cinema and the aforementioned upturn in home entertainment’s fortunes, we know that the Hi-Fi Show 2001 will surpass all which have gone before. Don’t miss out!


The Room Of The Future

New millennium, new formats, new lifestyles: to mark the long-awaited, true convergence of the myriad systems which make up home entertainment, the Hi-Fi Show 2001 has created ‘The Room of the Future’. In this massive display area, exhibitors have been invited to present their most forward-thinking products, the finest examples of the marriage between pure audio, audio/video, home computing, home automation, multi-room systems and other new technologies. With the internet emerging as the music provider of choice for a whole new generation of music lovers; with SACD and DVD-Audio promising multi-channel sound from discs derived from CD; with improvements in plasma screen technology, it’s no cliché to state that the future is here. Now.

Hi-Fi Show 2001’s Room of the Future will offer the public a chance to see, hear and use the finest products that point the way to genuine fingertip access to music, information, films and everything else that enriches our lives. And all of this is achieved with better sound, better imaging, greater convenience and resistance to obsolescence.

Unlike other events which seem to encourage dumbing down, the Hi-Fi News-sponsored Room of the Future will show that automation, convenience features and aesthetically-acceptable designs need not preclude absolute quality. And it’s not a case of what’s in store for us in ten years time. The most surprising feature of this display is that everything on offer is available, right now, in 2001!
