STYLISH, COMPACT AND SILENT
Extremely easy to connect and set up, it is also virtually silent in use. Simply choose which controller you wish to use – the free iPad or iPhone app, music streaming controller, or your computer. Featuring the full suite of Meridian’s world-leading audio enhancement DSP technology, it is a finely wrought blend of high-level engineering and sublime musical performance.
MERIDIAN APODISING FILTER
Filters are critical in digital audio. Commonly they introduce distortion and harshness because of "pre-ringing". Early digital recordings suffer from harshness too, due to primitive filters. After painstaking research, Meridian developed a special filter that avoids pre-ringing, so it can be steeper, cleaning up the effects of early filters. The result: a better, cleaner sound from recordings old and new.
Traditional audio systems often require large, expensive cables to maintain their performance. Meridian's SpeakerLink uses an “Ethernet style” cable that delivers pristine digital sound and control down a single cable between Meridian components. The result is simple, unobtrusive, and cost-effective cables that are easy to install.
