2014 marks the 25th anniversary of the launch of Meridian’s first digital loudspeaker, the D600, in 1989. At CES 2014 Meridian will display some of their iconic products showing the development of their digital loudspeaker technology from the D600 to the present day.
Summary of Meridian Products on Show at CES 2014
Special Edition (SE) Loudspeakers – 2014 will see Meridian launch a new Special Edition series of DSP Digital Active Loudspeakers, featuring a beryllium domed tweeter, new electronics and driver clamp rings to deliver what they say will be the highest-performing Meridian DSP Digital Active Loudspeaker available. Meridian will be previewing the new models at CES and Special Edition DSP8000, DSP7200 and DSP5200 (all on display) will be announced.
G55 and G57 Power Amplifiers – to extend the flexibility of Meridian Digital Theatre and stereo components, Meridian is re-introducing 5- and 2-channel amplifiers, enabling their surround controllers like the new G65 (which will also be on show) to drive third-party passive loudspeakers. The G65 is specifically designed to operate with the HD621 HDMI Processor, which separates out high-definition video and audio, “increasing the quality of both”. The launch of the G65 marks the 20th anniversary of the Meridian 565, the world’s first Digital Surround Controller.
Personal Audio Products – Meridian will be exhibiting the latest in its expanding line of personal audio products, including the recently-launched Prime Headphone Amplifier and new Prime Power Supply.
