Full Description

Media Source 200 features an elegant, compact aluminium enclosure with moulded end caps, which can be located almost anywhere. Connectors are mounted at one end, and LED indicators behind an infrared receptor window at the other, the latter allowing the unit to receive IR commands for an entire audio system via, for example, an MSR+. Media Source 200 offers a wide range of output connectivity including SpeakerLink, digital and analogue ensuring compatibility with any audio system.  

 

Design:



The enclosure is designed to be small and discrete, allowing installation even behind a DSP loudspeaker, drawing power form the loudspeaker itself via its SpeakerLink connection.  

Compact single-zone source provides access to your streaming library.

Connects internet radio services (where available) to the zone in which it is used.

Managed and controlled from any Control attached to the streaming network, including wirelessly via the free Core Control iPhone and iPad apps.

Create an additional zone simply with the Media Source 200 and a pair of Meridian DSP Loudspeakers.

Built-in infrared receiver allows control of your Meridian system.

Mount directly into a Meridian In-wall loudspeaker.

Technology:

Proprietary Meridian audio enhancement technologies deliver the best sound quality from your music collection.

Analogue audio output for simple connection to a hi-fi or multi-zone distributed audio system.

Meridian SpeakerLink for direct connection to a pair of Meridian’s DSP Loudspeakers: some models can also power the unit.

Create an additional zone simply with the Media Source 200 and a pair of Meridian DSP Loudspeakers.

S/PDIF Optical digital audio output for connection to surround receivers or other digital devices.

Employs DHCP for setup-free connection to the network and includes automatic discovery for integration with other streaming components.
Media Source 200 delivers the best from your library, thanks to Meridian's proprietary 'apodising' upsampling filter, which maximises digital audio quality and can even improve the sound of older digital recordings. These audio enhancements bring another level of performance and enjoyment.  

When connected via SpeakerLink to the Audio Core 200 or selected loudspeaker models, the SpeakerLink destination powers the Media Source 200. An external power supply is also included for operation where the Media Source 200 is not connected to a compatible SpeakerLink destination. An RJ45 Ethernet connection interfaces the Media Source 200 with the IP network and with additional devices. Employing DHCP, the Media Source 200 presents a setup-free connection to the network and includes automatic discovery for integration with other streaming components.

Meridian Apodising Filter

Filters are critical in digital audio. Commonly they introduce distortion and harshness because of "pre-ringing". Early digital recordings suffer from harshness too, due to primitive filters. After painstaking research, Meridian developed a special filter that avoids pre-ringing, so it can be steeper, cleaning up the effects of early filters. The result: a better, cleaner sound from recordings old and new.

SpeakerLink

Traditional audio systems often require large, expensive cables to maintain their performance. Meridian's SpeakerLink uses an “Ethernet style” cable that delivers pristine digital sound and control down a single cable between Meridian components. The result is simple, unobtrusive, and cost-effective cables that are easy to install.
