Meridian 210

The Meridian 210 Streamer is a high-performance audio source which allows streaming services used on smartphones, tablets and other devices to be played on your audio system. It enables music accessed from high-quality streaming platforms to be integrated seamlessly with Meridian systems.

The 210 can be attached directly to a pair of Meridian DSP loudspeakers or it can be connected to any Meridian system with a SpeakerLink input. In all cases, volume and playback controls are synchronised between streaming apps and the Meridian system.

The 210 supports Bluetooth® wireless technology, Spotify Connect (where available), it is a Roon Ready device and it also supports acts as a DLNA/UPnP renderer (a hard drive can be connected to the rear USB port).

Bidirectional integration between streaming apps and Meridian products, linking volume and playback controls, such as “Play”, “Stop/Pause” and “Skip” – making control functionality consistent and predictable whether it is carried out via the streaming app or on the Meridian system.

MHR – Meridian High Resolution [MHR] allows the secure movement of high resolution digital audio, without degradation or loss in quality.

SPEAKERLINK – Traditional audio systems often require large, expensive cables to maintain their performance. Meridian’s SpeakerLink uses an “Ethernet style” cable that delivers pristine digital sound and control down a single cable between Meridian components. The result is simple, unobtrusive, and cost-effective cables that are easy to install.

MQA – Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) is a revolutionary end-to-end technology that delivers master quality audio in a file that’s small enough to stream or download.

The 210 is housed in a half-width, 1U tall enclosure. It is comprised of an Aluminium case fitted with non-metallic panels to allow for WiFi functionality using two internal antennae. The 210 shares its form factor with some other Meridian 200 series products, such as the Meridian 218. An optional rack-shelf is available which can accommodate two of any such units.
