British manufacturer Meridian Audio was the established superstar in digital audio playback. Sooloos was the rising superstar in digital audio servers. Yeah, together the combination makes for a killer all-digital music server and sound system, which Meridian turned into a reality back in December by acquiring Sooloos.
Now the company has debuted the Control 10 touchscreen interface, which bridges the systems together by also incorporating Meridian’s proprietary SpeakerLink/Comms Connectivity for seamless and slick integration.
The touchscreen itself features a gorgeous 17-inch screen that shows off your music collection with colorful album art for you to scroll through.
At the other end of the bridge stand Meridian’s vaunted digital speakers, preamp/controllers and music systems through which you’ll be able to drool over the high-resolution digital files you’ve ripped on Sooloos’ slot-loading CD drive. There’s also RS-232 for integration into home control systems.
Check with your local Meridian dealer on the availability of the $5,000 Control 10 touchscreen and complete high-performance Meridian/Sooloos digital marriage.
