Meridian at KL AV show
Steven of Absolute Hi-Fi, who is bringing the brand to Malaysia, said the following components will be on display at the show.
DSP7200 - the first of Meridian’s DSP Loudspeaker models to include the company’s new SpeakerLink input/output interfacing architecture, featuring balanced drive and RJ45 connectors for simplicity and elegance of installation via CAT-5 cabling. It also features a new, proprietary, upsampling filter that makes CDs and DVD soundtracks sound better than ever.
DSP5200 - this is available in vertical format either as pairs or as a vertical centre speaker for surround applications. A DSP5200HC horizontal centre version is also available for installation under a screen.
DSP3100 - they are ideal for use as surrounds for a Meridian DSP-based system, and they are ideal compact second zone speakers in a Meridian multi-room environment. With S/PDIF digital inputs at up to 24-bit, 96kHz, they can also be used as high-high-end computer loudspeakers. The extremely accurate characteristics of the DSP3100 and M3100 also make them eminently suitable for studio monitoring applications, particularly as near-field or surround monitors in recording and mastering facilities. They are equally suited for use in a smaller stand-alone system in a study or bedroom.
G61R Surround Controller- at the heart of the G61R is a powerful DSP engine delivering 900MIPS (million instructions per second). Processing is performed at high sample rates and with 48-bit precision throughout, ensuring that all filtering, processing and other operations are carried out far above the limits of human hearing. The G61R is ideal for the very latest in digital audio. For superior audio quality, incoming analogue signals are converted to 24-bit, high-sample-rate digital data via multibit Delta-Sigma converters as soon as they enter the processor. All digital signals are re-clocked to minimize jitter and maintain total data integrity.
The G61R combines controller and surround processor functions, meeting the latest THX Ultra 2 specifications and including the latest superb-quality AAC, MPEG, DTS, Dolby, Trifield and Ambisonic decoding.
