System integrators has to provide their customers really authentic audio experiences, both in residential and commercial installations. The most important goal for Meridian Audio is to help partners to create even greater audio systems.
The audio company showcased innovative products and exciting partnerships at ISE 2018. Visitors could see and hear Meridian’s hi-res audio solutions, including a number of versatile new products, and learn how to create the best possible listening experience for their clients. “Integrators and our customers care about an authentic audio experience – explains our editorial staff Katy Bradshaw, Meridian’s director of marketing, during the booth tour -. We’ve listened to what they’ve told us, and we’re delighted to bring a great series of Meridian products to ISE 2018. These innovations underline how we share the same goals – transforming the way people experience sound”.
Meridian unveiled the UHD722 Ultra High Definition Audio Processor, a 4K switching solution which incorporates Multichannel Meridian High Resolution (MMHR) output, enabling connection to existing processors, which results in a significant uplift in the audio system’s sound quality. The UHD722 features Meridian’s unique high resolution Upsampling and Apodising technologies to offer the best possible performance from Blu-ray Disc, satellite/TV receivers and gaming consoles.
In addition, with new, updated features, the award-winning M6 Digital Active Loudspeaker was also on demonstration. For the first time the M6’s signature room-filling sound is now available with just a single loudspeaker thanks to its new “mono” mode. Both the left and right channels are summed, meaning you don’t lose any of the information, enabled using the Meridian’s mono algorithms, first developed in the in-wall DSP320. Integrators also previewed the 210 Streamer, designed to bring Bluetooth, Apple Airplay and Spotify Connect to Meridian products.
We also found at Meridian’s boot two “new entry” within the 200 series: the 271 Digital Theatre Controller, which provides the perfect link to integrate any analogue or digital AV processor or receiver with Meridian’s DSP loudspeakers, and the 251 Powered Zone Controller, bringing Meridian’s superior audio performance to a variety of analogue speaker applications.
