Design:

Control 15 embodies all three of the elements that define Meridian streaming – storage, control and playback – in a single unit. The Control 15's internal drive stores the equivalent of up to about 1,000 albums in true lossless CD quality, while an integrated CD drive accommodates CD imports. In addition, it automatically locates other streaming storage on the network and seamlessly integrates it into your music collection.

Integrated audio renderer features full suite of Meridian’s audio-enhancing DSP technologies, delivering pristine quality.

Control 15 features an optimised audio output design that includes the very best of Meridian’s experience with digital sound. Digital Signal Processing (DSP) provides the full range of digital audio features for which Meridian is renowned, such as upsampling for enhanced audio performance, and an ultra-low-jitter clocking system for superior stereo imaging and digital audio performance. With a high-contrast, high-resolution 17-inch LCD display, the Control 15 features a sensitive resistive touch panel that responds instantly to a fingertip.  

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.
