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.
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.
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.
