Much has changed since Meridian first opened its doors in 1977 but our core philosophy hasn't.

This remains as strong as ever and will continue to fuel our efforts to truly revolutionise how we experience sound.

We are very proud to have been awarded over 350 industry awards and accolades including three design council awards. Also, our products are part of the permanent collection at the prestigious Victoria and Albert museum in London and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
