Designed and hand-assembled in Meridian’s Cambridgeshire-based production facility, the company’s M80 compact audio system features an elliptical cabinet, crafted of custom mineral composite.
It houses an 80-watt 2.1 Digital Signal Processing (DSP) stereo system with a rear-mounted subwoofer, slot-loading CD/DVD drive and AM/FM Digital Radio, in addition to multiple analogue and digital inputs that combine to deliver a versatile and powerful audio package. Meridian’s advanced DSP, coupled with location compensation controls, ensure the same acoustic performance at any volume, regardless of the size of the room and where the M80 is situated within it, the company says.
The M-80 is available in British leather, in three colors—Obsidian Black, Chestnut, and Ivory, and is hand stitched in Northampton by IM Kelly.
The organic light emitting diode (OLED) display features an automatic brightness control that adapts to the ambient light levels in the M80’s surroundings, and provides a host of clear and useful information. This is complemented by a subtle and ergonomically molded button interface to navigate smoothly among the M80’s core functions.
Every M80 compact entertainment system comes complete with a gloss-black i80 dock for the iPod. Tracks from the iPod can either be selected on the M80’s display panel or at a distance using the slimline handheld magnetic-backed remote control.
