Meridian Audio recently announced the availability of three new Meridian DSP Digital Active Loudspeakers - Special Edition DSP8000 SE, DSP7200 SE and DSP5200 SE.
2014 marks the 25th anniversary of the launch of Meridian’s first digital loudspeaker – in fact the first digital loudspeaker in the world – the D600, in 1989. From the very beginning, Meridian loudspeakers had been Active – they included the amplifiers and line-level crossovers inside the cabinet. But Meridian had taken the leap into digital audio technology with the introduction of the Compact Disc several years earlier, and it had been evident that an all-digital signal path to the loudspeaker was the future.
Honouring the 25th anniversary of the introduction of the world’s first digital loudspeaker, 2014 has seen Meridian launch and now make available to order a new Special Edition series of DSP Digital Active Loudspeakers, featuring a beryllium domed tweeter, new electronics and driver clamp rings.
Commenting on the new range, Bob Stuart, one of Meridian’s co-founders and now Chairman and Chief Technical Officer, said “The new Special Edition DSP Digital Active Loudspeakers from Meridian provide the most revealing, lifelike and powerful performance of any Meridian loudspeakers to date. Developed from expertise honed over more than 25 years of true research and continual system development, these new Special Edition loudspeakers specifically benefit from Meridian’s scientific research into how humans perceive sound, or ‘how we hear’, in particular focusing on how our brains process live sound.”
