The Special Edition DSP7200 demonstrates the ultimate expression of high-resolution audio that can be achieved within a loudspeaker of its size.

The DSP7200SE’s additional DSP processor and drive-unit clamp rings, combined with extreme cabinet resonance control, guarantee the listener hears the finest details. Its beryllium tweeter delivers breathtaking clarity and detail that can be enjoyed effortlessly for long periods of time. This optimum fidelity is supported by punch and control, making the DSP7200SE the perfect solution for authentic audio in small to medium sized rooms (20-50m2).

The additional DSP device, used by the Special Edition loudspeakers, doubles the available processing power allowing all audio, including MQA Core streams, to be rendered at 176.4/192kHz regardless of the incoming sampling rate. This results in increased resolution, detail and clarity to provide maximum fidelity from music and movies.

Where to buy

Reference

Special Edition DSP7200

The DSP7200SE contains a complete matched audio system, giving the highest overall quality, lower power consumption and the performance of a traditional passive loudspeaker eight times the physical volume. Finished as standard in a piano lacquer black or white, 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.

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 loudspeakers. It ensures that all frequencies reach the listener’s ear at the same time.

Q-Sync

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

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.

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.

Free-Q

Meridian Free-Q is used to compensate for acoustic problems associated with specific loudspeaker placement conditions.

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.

The Reference Series 

The Reference series represents 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.

With its extensive Research and Development programme Meridian has pioneered the development of a host of innovative audio technologies many of which feature in today’s Meridian products.
