The re­turn of Meridian

Sound + Image - - The Hi-Fi Headlines -

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.
