Meridian Appoints AudioGroup as Canadian Distributor for Personal Audio Products

Meridian announces the appointment of AudioGroup as the company’s Canadian Distributor for its line of personal audio products including the award-winning Explorer² USB DAC—the world’s first MQA-ready product.

“I’m very happy to have formed this new partnership with AudioGroup,” said John Bartkowiak, International Sales Executive for Meridian. “Working with Sarah Tremblay and Stephan Ritch will give Meridian the opportunity to reach a wider audience and drive the public awareness of Meridian.”

Based in Montreal, AudioGroup is the exclusive Canadian distributor for Grado headphones and cartridges for over 30 years. “We are delighted to become the distributor for Meridian’s extraordinary personal audio products,” said AudioGroup’s Sarah Tremblay. “It couldn’t happen at a better time in Meridian’s history, with the launch of MQA, which will revolutionize the way people are listening to their preferred music.  The Meridian DAC and headphone amplifier products are a perfect fit for the legendary Grado headphones, and I can’t wait to offer it to our dealers. ”


Meridian is based near Cambridge, UK, and was founded in 1977 by Bob Stuart and Allen Boothroyd. With over 35 years’ history of innovation and development of uncompromised consumer home entertainment systems offering exceptional performance, this award-winning company is widely recognised as a world leader in high-quality audio and video reproduction. Meridian developed the first audiophile CD player, the world’s first consumer digital surround controller, and the MLP lossless packing system included in Blu-ray Disc. The company’s optical disc players, DSP-based loudspeakers, video projectors, and scalers are unique in the industry, maintaining a super-quality digital signal throughout the path from the studio to the home, using advanced digital signal processing to deliver both a sweet, natural sound and smooth, crystal-sharp images with true cinematic realism. In late 2008, Meridian acquired leading networked media server developer Sooloos, and today the Meridian Digital Media System offers a unique combination of superb digital audio quality with the world’s most innovative, flexible and intuitive touch screen.
