Meridian Ellipse

Beautiful to look at, Ellipse is designed to subtly elevate any space. Its elliptical design signature echoes the design of other Meridian products. In combination with its harmonious curves, Ellipse boasts a luxuriously smooth, pebble-like surface in a deep, non-reflective black. Its soft and subtle finish is inviting to the touch, adding an element of style and sophistication to any modern living space. A perfect synthesis of function and form, within a timeless aesthetic.

Ellipse offers superb flexibility with Bluetooth wireless technology and Wi-Fi streaming, while an Ethernet socket provides the option of a wired network connection.

Supports AirPlay and Chromecast built-in, as well as native streaming from Spotify Connect and TIDAL Connect. It is a Roon Ready device and can be used as a UPnP renderer.

Twelve of Meridian’s unique DSP technologies make Ellipse capable of handling rooms of any size without compromise on sound quality.

Unique control options, including Image Elevation technology and the innovative Bass and Space feature, allow the listener to tailor the sound to listening preferences, background noise levels, room size, and speaker placement.

Effortless Simplicity

Control at your fingertips. Playback functions fall easily to hand by virtue of the illuminated touch controls built into the top of the unit. Ellipse is easy to use and yet it supports a rich feature set which offers flexible set-up options and powerful user-settings.
