reference - DSP Special edition 'SE' LOUDSPEAKERS

DSP5200SE, DSP7200SE and DSP8000SE

Meridian are at the forefront of loudspeaker digital technology having introduced the concept of the Digital Active DSP Loudspeaker more than 20 years ago. 

Their latest developments include the 'SE Special Edition.

This range includes new DSP processing capability designed to function with 'MQA', which is the new music codec delivering the highest musical fidelity ever developed.


Research And Development

The new Special Edition DSP Digital Active Loudspeakers from Meridian provide the most revealing, lifelike and powerful performance of any Meridian loudspeakers to date. Developed from expertise honed over more than 25 years of true research and continual system development, these new Special Edition loudspeakers specifically benefit from Meridian's scientific research into how humans perceive sound, or how we hear, in particular focusing on how our brains process live sound.

Meridian's philosophy takes understanding from neuroscience and psychoacoustics as the starting point for audio system design and places Meridian in a unique position to resolve the challenges of high performance audio playback. Guided by original research and maintaining a focus on connecting our emotions with the artist performance, Meridian's engineers have addressed new important areas in developing these new Special Edition loudspeakers.

The Technology

Building on major Meridian innovations such as Trifield, MHR encryption, MLP lossless coding, apodizing filters and EBA (Enhanced Bass Alignment) and now MQA, the new Special Edition loudspeakers offer the most significant performance enhancement in recent years by delivering the highest resolution sound available. Meridian's approach to high resolution sound in the new Special Edition loudspeakers delivers more accurate time-domain response and offers significantly improved transient speed across the entire digital active system.

Special Edition Loudspeakers are 'MQA' ready

Special Edition loudspeakers features

To achieve the highest performance possible with these Special Edition loudspeakers required many entirely new design implementations to the award-winning DSP8000, DSP7200 and DSP5200 models.

Special Edition loudspeakers are 'MQA' ready

New features

  • Meridian designed short horn loaded tweeter with a Beryllium dome

  • Mid-range and bass driver mechanical clamp rings
