The ben­e­fits of wire­less stream­ing, seam­lessly dis­trib­uted through­out your home, were de­liv­ered by Sonos al­most a decade be­fore any­one else. But since then a grow­ing de­mand for a higher per­for­mance ver­sion of the tech­nol­ogy has prompted the in­tro­duc­tion of a myr­iad more ex­pen­sive op­tions – most no­table be­ing Blue­sound.

Meridian has now taken the tech­nol­ogy to a higher level with their 251 Pow­ered Zone Con­troller. The 251 is a com­pact 65 watt per chan­nel streamer/am­pli­fier with both dig­i­tal and ana­logue in­puts. It will drive al­most any pas­sive loud­speaker and serve as the cen­tre piece of a high per­for­mance stand-alone zone of mu­sic.

The 251 sells for $2,699, and given its per­for­mance and flex­i­bil­ity it of­fers ex­cel­lent value. This is for the dis­cern­ing con­sumer who wants the flex­i­bil­ity of multi-room stream­ing, but does not want to com­pro­mise on per­for­mance.
