Meridian Explorer 2 - TIdal - MQA

Tuesday, 17 January 2017

THE EXPLORER 2

Meridian’s new Explorer² is the successor to the popular and widely acclaimed Explorer pocket USB DAC. Featuring a dramatically increased complement of DSP, Explorer² is able to incorporate the full suite of Meridian’s audio enhancement technologies to provide a more realistic, natural sound than ever before.

"At the price, I have not heard a better portable DAC/headphone amplifier than the Meridian Explorer²." - HiFi Choice Magazine

“Music is spacious, detailed and transparent enough to invite comparisons to more expensive DACs. High-res ‘to-go’ for less than the price of a decent set of headphones!” - The Absolute Sound Magazine

“A very reasonable £199 price tag, cutting-edge performance and that enviable Meridian logo, it’s pretty hard not to recommend the Explorer 2.” [Five Stars] - BBC Music Magazine

MQA

The days of sacrificing quality for convenience are over!

Conventional audio formats discard parts of the sound to keep file sizes down, therefore we miss out on the 3D soundscape in our minds from the subtle timing information which makes the music become flattened. With the technology of MQA we can go all the way back to the original recording and capture the missing detail, but by using advanced digital processing to deliver it in a form that's small enough to download or stream.

Imagine being at the recording of the original studio performance of your favourite artist. Feel every emotion and interpretation of the song. MQA is a revolutionary end-to-end technology that delivers master audio quality in a file that's small enough to stream or download. The Explorer 2 can be used with MQA, which makes hi-res audio streaming a reality with songs being able to be delivered exactly how they were recorded in the studio without requiring huge amount of bandwidth to deliver.  Music streaming services are slowly but surely becoming the main medium through which many of us listen to music.
