New York -- Meridian Audio has introduced the M80 high-performance compact entertainment system.

The M80 features Meridian technologies and houses an 80-watt 2.1 stereo system with a rear-mounted subwoofer, slot-loading CD/DVD drive and AM/FM digital radio, in addition to multiple analog and digital inputs, the company said.

The M80 is available in British leather available in three colors, obsidian black, chestnut and ivory, and a "distinctly modern outer case," as the company describes it, hand-stitched in Northampton by IM Kelly, an artisan business "renowned for their work with some of the world's most prestigious luxury automotive and marine marques," Meridian added.

The OLED display features an automatic brightness control that adapts to the ambient light levels in the M80's surroundings, and provides a host of information. Every M80 compact entertainment system comes complete with a gloss-black i80 dock for the iPod. Tracks from the iPod can either be selected on the M80's display panel or at a distance using the slim-line handheld magnetic-backed remote control, the company said.

The Meridian M80 suggested retail is $2,995 and includes the i80 iPod dock.
