Meridian Audio’s research team has revealed a series of performance enhancements to the company’s most advanced products, such as the 808 Signature Reference Compact Disc Player and 861 Reference Digital Surround Controller.
Meridian has also upgraded the performance of the DSP7200 Digital Active Loudspeaker with new DSP developments including a new psychoacoustically-based feature to allow the adjustment of image height in home theater applications.
808 Signature Reference CD Player
The Compact Disc still offers a wide music catalog and exceptional quality—particularly if replayed through the highest class system, the company says. This latest edition 808 includes improved technology and components that enhance audio quality in a number of areas. There is also a plate commemorating 30 years of the format along with the signatures of Meridian’s co-founders.
861 Reference Digital Surround Controller
The latest edition of the 861 Reference Digital Surround Controller offers enhanced surround-sound playback capabilities. It includes improved technology in a number of areas and the addition of brand new features such as the ability to manage center-channel height imaging in conjunction with the new DSP7200HC loudspeaker.
DSP7200 Digital Active Loudspeaker and DSP7200HC Horizontal Center
The DSP7200 has been a popular part of the Meridian Digital Active Loudspeaker range since its introduction in 2007. Now with improved technology and components, it provides even purer audio performance, the company says, while new DSP developments provide additional features including innovative music modes and, in the Horizontal Center version, a new proprietary, psychoacoustically-based feature called Center Elevation, that allows the adjustment of image height in home cinema applications – delivering a seamless experience when integrated into the Meridian Digital Theater system.
All models will be available in late November.
