Perfect for movies and music, the Special Edition DSP7200HC is an ideal partner for both Special Edition DSP7200 and DSP8000 XE in a multi-channel system.

The DSP7200HC SE is designed for mounting under a large-screen TV, behind an acoustically-transparent projection screen and in systems that include Meridian free-standing or in-wall loudspeakers.

The Special Edition DSP7200HC provides sound that is incredibly lifelike in scale and tone. This horizontal centre-channel loudspeaker uses our Full Frequency Alignment technology to correct the increased delays inherent on lower parts of the frequency range, resulting in a sweeter, more natural sound. Our unique Image Elevation technology allows the Special Edition DSP7200HC to be placed below the screen while having its sound image psychoacoustically tied to the on-screen action, helping to create an immersive movie experience.

Image Elevation

Image Elevation psychoacoustically raises the sound image to the centre of a screen – where the listener would expect to hear it from.

Bespoke Signal Mapping

Meridian Bespoke Signal Mapping utilises digital signal processing to apply tailored crossover filters that are designed specifically for each configuration of drive units within a loudspeaker.

E3 Bass

Meridian E3 Bass uses specifically designed filters to expand, extend and enhance the low-frequency response of the loudspeaker.


FFA (Full Frequency Alignment) is a combination of digital filters and delays to correct the group-delay of a loudspeakers. It ensures that all frequencies reach the listener’s ear at the same time.

Pro-Active Bass

Meridian Pro-Active Bass protects the bass drivers from over-excursion, ensuring maximum bass output without damaging the drive units.

Pro-Active Thermal

Meridian Pro-Active Thermal monitors the audio being sent to the mid-range drivers and tweeters and limits the overall volume of the loudspeaker if there is a risk of the drive units getting too hot.


Meridian Q-Sync deploys Meridian's multiple “First In, First Out” buffering system which minimises jitter, ensuring perfect timing and improved clarity.

True Time

True Time is Meridian's proprietary Apodising Filter that avoids pre-ringing and cleans up the effects of early filters, converting pre-echo to post-echo.

True Link

Meridian True Link is an encryption method for transferring high-definition digital audio over SPDIF connections. It allows secure movement of digital audio whilst ensuring that the SPDIF clock signal can be transmitted with minimum degradation.

Meridian True Time

After painstaking research, Meridian developed a special filter that avoids pre-ringing, so it can be steeper, cleaning up the effects of early filters.
