Meridian DSP7200.2

Frank Prowse Hi-Fi is your Meridian Lounge dealer for Perth & Western Australia.

The Meridian DSP7200.2 is a full range floorstanding loudspeaker which adopts the same cabinet design and technology principles as the flagship DSP8000. The latest edition, DSP7200.2, takes this technology to a new high, with a series of technological innovations that deliver superior performance in many areas.

Built by hand in the UK, each Meridian DSP5200.2 Digital Active loudspeaker features the latest Digital Signal Processing (DSP) technology. This ingenious, yet elegant design means that the loudspeaker enclosure contains the entire system’s electronics including four custom drivers, four amplifiers and advanced sound-shaping DSP computers in each cabinet. It also includes the Enhanced Bass Alignment (EBA) system, which ensures that low frequencies are time-aligned across the entire bass range.

The DSP 7200.2 can be used as a stand-alone pair or as part of a multi loudspeaker installation in applications such as a home cinema. From medium sized rooms to more spacious environments, the DSP7200.2 fits in perfectly and delivers an outstanding and powerful performance.

PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS
Features four custom drivers, amplifiers, digital converters, improved digital crossovers and advanced sound-shaping DSP technology.

Advanced DSP filtering “cleans up” older digital recordings, and new Enhanced Bass Alignment improves LF transient response to provide additional clarity and an open, transparent sound-stage.

New improved-performance dual-magnet, semi horn- loaded composite dome tweeter with silver voice coil.

Curved cabinet features advanced damping technology and “Meridium” metal/wood laminate for superb rigidity.

USER FEATURES
Whether in a two-channel system or as part of a multichannel home theatre array, the DSP7200.2 provides precision command of frequency balance, listening axis, time-compensated balance and master volume.
Ethernet’ style SpeakerLink cabling which maintains performance and is easy to install.

TECHNOLOGIES
A new SpeakerLink board provides enhanced interoperability between Meridian Controllers and DSP Loudspeakers. Digital Signal Processing has been enhanced for higher clock speeds, giving superb handling of the high sample rates encountered with high-resolution audio sources.

Each amplifier has been refined to provide a more lifelike sound, with optimised transient response, extended frequency response and enhanced dynamic range.

Meridian’s innovative Enhanced Bass Alignment technology uses two different technologies to time-align high, mid and upper bass frequencies with the low bass, resulting in audibly improved bass transients and added life and clarity.

A unique Meridian filter that avoids pre-ringing, so it can be steeper, cleaning up the effects of early, less efficient filters used in the digital recording process. The result: a better, cleaner sound from recordings both old and new.

Meridian’s “First In, First Out” buffering system minimises jitter, ensuring perfect timing and improved clarity. You enjoy a clearer feeling of the instruments and their interrelationship.

MHR was the first approved encryption method for transferring high definition digital audio between components. MHR allows secure movement of high resolution digital audio within a Meridian system, without compromise, improving quality by reducing cyclic repetition.

CONSTRUCTION
The Meridian DSP7200.2 is manufactured from interlaminated Meridium panels finished in high gloss piano lacquer. Meridium features highest-grade laminated plywood layers bonded to an aluminium core, allowing the loudspeaker to reproduce music accurately without adding its own sound. For perfect stability, the loudspeaker stands on adjustable foot assemblies machined from solid aluminium.
The narrow shape emulates aspects of the human form, which according to psychoacoustic research provides a more realistic performance. Soft cabinet edges enhance the visual design, but they also avoid generating unwanted additional high frequency sounds that can blur the soundstage.

Available in High Gloss Black or High Gloss White as standard finishes. Custom finishes are available upon request as well as a further 270 RAL colour finishes as part of Meridian’s Select programme.
