Employing TIDAL streaming technology together with a pair of Meridian special edition DSP7200 digital active loudspeakers and a Meridian 818 reference audio core, the team successfully demonstrated that listeners can experience the full quality and intricacy of recordings, authenticated in the studio, using incredibly “streaming-friendly” files.
