Availability: In stock

We Aim To Dispatch Goods Within 3 Working Days

£17,000.00
From its piano lacquered curved cabinet to its raked rear heat sink, the DSP7200.2 can be called “functional art.”  

Standing at just over one metre, The DSP7200.2 outperforms loudspeakers of up to four times their size, providing a convincing and life-size performance at home. Meridian’s unique DSP technologies provide the DSP7200 with freedom of room placement without sonic penalty. A new Enhanced Bass Alignment provides natural sounding bass that simply must be heard and now the pice has been repositioned down to £17,000, this offers a great chance for customers to upgrade. 

Soundcraft's Opinion

Simply stunning 3 way loudspeaker with mono amplification built in, gives a true reflection of what an active loudspeaker should sound like. if you dont want the full system rack of amplifiers and cables draped around the room then these speakers tick lots of boxes that customers wish for. if you wanted to listen to analogue system side by side then we are more than happy to show you this and actually we highly reccommend taking the time to do this. We want you to buy what you like most and what is going to fit in best with your environment, for us it really is as simple as that.

Full Description

The DSP7200.2 has been a popular loudspeaker since its introduction, and it is ideal for medium-sized spaces or where the installation of DSP8000 models is not practical. It is also particularly appropriate in a large-scale home theatre installation where it can be used in conjunction with DSP8000s.

The curved cabinet features advanced damping technology and “Meridium” metal/wood laminate for superb rigidity.
 Available as a vertical centre channel for home cinema use for £10,250.

Available in over 270 colours

Meridian Select, our bespoke colour service, provides a choice of over 270 different colours and shades to help your Meridian system achieve an ideal match – or striking standout look – within its surroundings.

The standard colours are black and white piano lacquer finishes.

Technology:

3½-way Digital Signal Processing (DSP) active loudspeaker system

New improved-performance dual-magnet, semi-horn-loaded composite dome tweeter with silver voice coil.

SpeakerLink digital audio and control I/O interface via RJ45

Self-contained audio system with four custom drivers, amplifiers, digital converters, improved digital crossovers and advanced sound-shaping DSP technology

Advanced DSP filtering “cleans up” older digital recordings, and new Enhanced Bass Alignment improves LF transient response

Listener controls include volume, bass, treble tilt, listening axis, time-compensated balance, absolute phase. 
The latest edition of the DSP7200.2 Digital Signal Processing (DSP) active loudspeaker system includes a number of enhancements compared to the original version introduced in 2007. These include a new tweeter and advanced DSP developments. DSP7200.2 also supports other new features provided by Meridian Audio Core products such as the Audio Core 200.

DSP7200.2 is a self-contained "3½-way" audio system with four custom drivers, amplifiers, digital converters, improved digital crossovers and advanced sound-shaping DSP technology. An advanced 'apodising' DSP upsampling filter “cleans up” older digital recordings, and the new Enhanced Bass Alignment  feature improves LF transient response.

The DSP7200.2 features Meridian's SpeakerLink digital audio and control I/O interface via RJ45, for simple installation with unobtrusive wiring.
 

DSP Loudspeakers

The traditional setup – amplifiers driving passive loudspeakers – is inefficient,

limiting sound quality. Meridian loudspeakers contain a complete, matched audio

system with efficient DSP crossovers, multiple DACs and driver-specific amplifiers,

giving higher overall quality, less power use, and the performance of a traditional

loudspeaker eight times the physical volume.

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

Meridium

Loudspeaker enclosures often vibrate, colouring the sound, making it less lifelike.

Our most advanced loudspeakers use a cabinet construction material unique to Meridian:

Meridium features highest-grade laminated plywood layers bonded to an aluminium core,

allowing the loudspeaker to reproduce music accurately without adding its own sound.

Triple FIFO Buffering

Each sample of a digital recording must remain evenly spaced in time. Unfortunately, timing

can vary, especially when reading discs. This is “jitter”, degrading music's sense of space

and diminishing realism. Meridian's multiple “First In, First Out” buffering system minimises

jitter, ensuring perfect timing and improved clarity. You enjoy a clearer feeling of the instruments

and their interrelationship.

Meridian High Resolution (MHR)

MHR was the first approved encryption method for transferring high definition digital audio

between components. Previously, it had to be in the analogue domain, reducing quality. MHR

allows secure movement of high resolution digital audio within a Meridian system, without

compromise, improving quality by reducing cyclic repetition.

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.
