Back in 1989, Meridian co-founders Bob Stuart and Allen Boothroyd launched the first digital loudspeaker in the world: the D600. Five years later, the duo launched the 565, the world’s first Digital Surround Controller.
At the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, U.K.-based Meridian will be commemorating those milestones with an array of products.
Among the products is the new Special Edition (SE) Loudspeakers—honoring the 25th anniversary of the introduction of D600. The new Special Edition series of DSP Digital Active Loudspeakers will feature a beryllium-domed tweeter, new electronics and driver clamp rings.
Meridian will be previewing the new models at CES and Special Edition DSP8000, DSP7200 and DSP5200 (all on display) will be announced.
In amplifiers, the company will showcase the G55 and G57 Power Amplifiers, to extend the flexibility of Meridian Digital Theatre and stereo components. Meridian is re-introducing 5- and 2-channel amplifiers, enabling their surround controllers like the new G65 (which will also be on show) to drive third-party passive loudspeakers. The G65 is specifically designed to operate with the HD621 HDMI Processor, which separates out high-definition video and audio, increasing the quality of both.
The company is also showing new personal audio products, including the recently-launched Prime Headphone Amplifier and new Prime Power Supply.
