Full Description

Typically used with a “matrix switch,” each room, or “zone”, can accommodate analogue, digital, and SpeakerLink sources. DSP Loudspeakers can be controlled via the home’s existing control system or handheld IR remote.

Featuring rack-mounting hardware, Distributor 3 is designed for discrete installation in your home’s electronics rack. With a back panel divided into three discrete “zones,” each zone provides analogue and digital inputs as well as SpeakerLink for a Meridian source, such as a streaming system.

RS232 is provided as a secure and simple connection to the home’s control system.  All of these signals are then sent to a pair of DSP Loudspeakers via SpeakerLink, making for a simple high performance distributed audio system.
Distributor 3 integrates Meridian DSP Loudspeakers with your home audio system, providing Meridian sound quality in every room.
Accommodates analogue, digital, and SpeakerLink Sources

Distributes audio from a central location to three additional 'zones'

Discrete control of each zone via an RS232 interface

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.

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.
