Soundcraft's Opinion

A fantastic streamer/pre amplifier that as from the 1st of Feburary will be £999 instead of £1,750. That is not all becasue Meridian have had a huge price reposition on many of their prodcuts so now is a great time to buy. Please feel free to give us a call regarding a demonstration here at the store or at home.

Full Description

Design:

 

Inside the stylish slim line enclosure – designed by Meridian co-founder and award-winning designer Allen Boothroyd – with its glass front panel and bead-blasted aluminium exterior, the circuitry features the very best of Meridian digital and analogue audio design, for ultimate playback quality.  

The Media Source 600 is styled and finished to sit comfortably in to any living space, or may be instantly converted for discreet rack-mounting.

Provides access to your Meridian digital media library and connects internet radio services (where available) to the zone in which it is used.

Managed and controlled from any Control attached to the Meridian network, including wirelessly via the free iPhone/iPad Core Control app.

Styled and finished to sit comfortably in to any living space, or may be instantly converted for discreet rack-mounting.

Technology:

High-quality balanced and unbalanced analogue audio outputs 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.

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

Employs DHCP for setup-free connection to the network and includes automatic discovery for integration with other streaming components.
The Media Source 600 features Meridian’s acclaimed audio enhancement technologies including an internal high-quality clock for lowest possible jitter and Apodising Upsampling, for superb audio quality.  

SpeakerLink connections are provided for a simple high performance link to Meridian Audio Controllers and DSP Loudspeakers.  In addition, high quality balanced and unbalanced analogue audio outputs provide a universal connection of streaming to a hi-fi or multi-zone distributed audio system. Analogue outputs can be configured for fixed or variable output for direct connection to an active loudspeaker or power amplifier with volume control. 

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.
