Off Axis Performance

The DSP730 provides a maximum output of 115dB at 1m and bass extension down to 38Hz. The drive units have been carefully selected to deliver off-axis performance, providing wide dispersion for optimal coverage of listening positions.

Beryllium Tweeter

The DSP730 features the same custom beryllium tweeter as the DSP750, which is capable of playing Hi-Res audio over 40kHz. The 100mm mid-range driver delivers clear dialogue, while the 160mm bass driver produces bass frequencies. The three drive units unleash the potential of the Hi-Res amplifiers and the Class-M DSP engine.

Class D Amplifiers

Three bridged pairs of Class-D amplifiers deliver over 100W to each drive unit and have been integrated into the design of the loudspeaker, eliminating any need for rack-mounted amplifiers. These amps have been designed to operate comfortably and run perfectly cool, even at the highest listening levels.

Enhanced Bass Alignment

As with all Meridian loudspeakers, the DSP730 features Meridian’s unique Enhanced Bass Alignment (EBA) technology to provide accurate bass alignment.

Soundbar Mode

The DSP730 features Meridan Centre Elevation technology and ‘L+R’ soundbar-mode for TV applications. In the soundbar mode, the loudspeaker plays a balanced mix of left and right audio, while the Centre Elevation technology raises the perceived image location from an under-screen loudspeaker to the centre of the screen. The DSP730 can be combined with the Meridian DSW600 in-wall subwoofer to produce a full-range, two-box solution.

For those installs where it’s important to achieve high SPL targets across the entire listening region of large spaces, the DSP730 can be installed in a High Power Array configuration to achieve 122dB at 1m. By stacking the speakers in this way, there will be no interference or spectral variation between the loudspeakers, resulting in an even response.

Compact

This compact loudspeaker, with a mounting depth of just 100mm, features a fully sealed, aluminium acoustic enclosure with double baffle that has been engineered to be extremely rigid and inert, eliminating unwanted resonances and colorations to provide consistent performance. A fully sealed design ensures reliable performance. Heavy bracing and FEA designed acoustic wadding cancels unwanted acoustic behaviour, while a separate mid-range driver enclosure prevents interaction with the bass driver. 

Price

Available now, the Meridian DSP730 is priced at £5,000 RRP.
