The return of Meridian
We have always been big fans of Meridian, but due to distribution problems in Australia for the last few years the product disappeared from our shelves. Well it is back, albeit with a limited range currently on display.
While the DSP7200SE Digital Active speakers ($49,900) hold pride of place it is the new(ish) M6 speakers that are generating a lot of interest. Like all Meridian speakers these are still digital active (the digital-to-analogue converters and amplifiers are built into the speakers). All you need to feed them is a digital signal. These are compact, attractive and above all great performers, perfect for anyone looking for a system that will not dominate a room, but who is not willing to compromise on performance.
Incidentally these sell in Australia for $7,999, while a quick search shows that they are US$9,000 in the USA, and still considered at that price to offer good value for money.
