Meridian M6

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

Meridian’s M6 is a uniquely shaped loudspeaker. Featuring individual components that are perfectly matched and sonically balanced, the entire system’s electronics are housed within the enclosure and deliver a level of performance that is unsurpassed by traditional speaker design.

Whether used individually, in a stereo pair or within a surround-sound system, the gently tapered and cylindrical shape gives the M6 its naturally wide dispersion pattern which fills a room with a superbly-imaged, natural sound that can be enjoyed from any position.

PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS
Low-frequency driver is specially orientated to play downwards, which means bass reproduction is solid and floor loaded and ensures it blends effortlessly into the listening environment.

Low-tuned porting system further extends the loudspeaker’s low-frequency performance.

Precision moulded into a complex form – impossible to achieve with traditional materials and techniques.

Features include including First In, First Out (FIFO) buffering, wide range drivers, efficient DSP crossovers and multiple DACs.

The cylindrical acoustic radiation pattern provides an even distribution of sound throughout the room.

USER FEATURES
DSP software which supports a “Mono” mode – activated from the Digital Channel Selector switch. Meridian’s unique algorithm combines signals from the left and right channels so that the M6’s signature room-filling sound can be achieved from a single speaker.
‘Ethernet’ style SpeakerLink cabling for optimal performance and easy installation.
A discreet light ‘halo’ – found nestling underneath the M6’s aluminium top-cap – indicates whether the speaker is operating (white) or in standby (blue).

ENHANCED BASS ALIGNMENT
Meridian’s innovative Enhanced Bass Alignment (EBA) 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.

FIFO BUFFERING
Meridian’s multiple ‘First In, First Out’ (FIFO) buffering system minimises jitter, ensuring perfect timing and improved clarity. You enjoy a clearer feeling of the instruments and their interrelationship.

WIDE RANGE DRIVER
Loudspeakers use crossovers to “divide” music into bands their drivers can reproduce. This introduces distortion, reducing sound quality – particularly on human voice recordings. Designing a single driver for both mid and high frequencies made a crossover within the vocal range unnecessary, avoiding distortion and reproducing more lifelike vocals at all volume levels.

MERIDIAN HIGH RESOLUTION
Meridian High Resolution (MHR) was the first approved encryption method for transferring high definition digital audio between components. Previously, it had to be in the analogue domain, reducing quality. MHR allows secure movement of high resolution digital audio within a Meridian system, without compromise, improving quality by reducing cyclic repetition.

MERIDIAN APODISING FILTER
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.

CONSTRUCTION
The M6 is formed from a specially developed, glass-filled resin. Uniquely heavy and rigid, it is precision moulded into a complex form which is impossible to achieve using traditional
manufacturing materials and techniques. Its tapered profile is acoustically inert, with the cylindrical enclosure providing separate, isolated housings for the wide-range and the low frequency drivers. The cylindrical base is made from high grade aluminium and houses the power input, and Meridian SpeakerLink (RJ45) connections and the Digital Channel Selector switch. A stylish aluminium cap and integrated distinctive circular light halo allow users to see the status of the M6 easily. Its off-axis dispersion and even distribution of sound creates a wide listening area perfect
for large spaces.
