The daddy of sound and vision is worth a browse, even if you know you can’t justify splashing out on any of the top-of-the-range products on offer. But there are some (relatively) affordable goodies, notably the Beosound 3, a portable radio and MP3 player – a tall oblong piece of equipment that is very Bond-like in the way the aerial rises up slickly each time you turn it on.

It may not cut through a pair of handcuffs, but its sound cuts though the air with relish. If, however, you’ve got a wallet on the fatter side, then you may feel like splashing on the Beovision 7, a 40-inch flatscreen with built-in DVD player and motorised stand. Or you may prefer to hold onto the Dhs52,525 it costs to earn this expensive crowd-pleaser.
