New Meridian ‘.2’ models benefit from maker’s Select bespoke colour service, which provides a choice of over 270 different colours and shades.

Meridian has announced that two new edition DSP loudspeakers are now ready to order. The DSP5200.2 (MSRP $12,000/pair) and DSP7200.2 (MSRP: $30,000/pair) Loudspeakers take Meridian’s proprietary Digital Signal Processing (DSP) technology to a new high, with a series of new and improved technological innovations that deliver superior performance in many areas.

The concept of the Digital Active DSP Loudspeaker, originally introduced by Meridian over two decades ago, provides the most accurate and effective path to high-quality sound reproduction. Set up is simple, too. Both new models house not just smart processing, but also amplification, creating a complete audio system in a loudspeaker. Just add a music source, such as a CD player or smartphone, and enjoy. To create ‘multi-room Meridian style,’ connect the company’s

Media Source 200 (MSRP: $1,000), which enables wireless control of networked music libraries, and brings dedicated iOS apps and Sooloos zone-controlling desktop software.

The key features and benefits of the Meridian DSP5200.2 and DSP7200.2 are:

  • Advanced, high-efficiency composite dome tweeter.
  • DSP active advantage – self-contained audio system with no amplification equipment needed.
  • Centre elevation adjustment technology delivered with Horizontal Centre version.
  • Advanced listener controls including bass, treble tilt, listening axis, volume, time-compensated balance and absolute phase.
