Special Edition DSP5200HC

Designed to complement a pair of DSP5200SE loudspeakers, the DSP5200SE HC provides full range playback in a horizontal centre channel package. Sharing technologies found in Meridian’s entire range of Special Edition DSP Loudspeakers, the DSP5200SE HC employs purpose built electronics that are housed within its meticulously crafted cabinet. Finished as standard in a piano lacquer black, the Special Edition Range is also available in any of the 270 Meridian Select colours. The range offers a choice of full range floor standing or horizontal centre channel options, for audio or home cinema solutions.

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

FFA (Full Frequency Alignment) is a combination of digital filters and delays to correct the group-delay of a loudspeaker. 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.

Q-Sync

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.

The Reference Series

The Reference series represent the pinnacle of Meridian’s loudspeaker design and development programme, making them the most advanced loudspeakers that Meridian has produced to date.

Built by hand in the UK, the Meridian Reference Special Edition range feature Digital Signal Processing (DSP) technology. This ingenious, yet elegant design means that the loudspeaker enclosure contains the entire system’s electronics including its amplification. In common with the other loudspeakers in the Special Edition series, a suite of innovative Meridian technologies are also built in.

The Special Edition Loudspeakers

Meridian’s goal has always been to reproduce the sound of the original performance exactly, and let nothing else get in the way.
