If you are not familiar with Meridian Audio in the hi-fi world, it’s a name to know. Meridian has been a pioneer in the world of digital audio since the beginning. Co-founded in 1977 by Bob Stuart, an engineer with a passion for music, Meridian has many firsts in digital audio. The company introduced the first active loudspeaker for the home in 1977 with the M1 and the first audiophile CD player in 1983.

Since then, Meridian has contributed significantly to the advancement of digital audio across many fronts, from contributing to the Meridian Lossless Packing to the Dolby TrueHD Lossless format to the MQA format for streaming digital music.

How is Meridian different? The company’s digital prowess provides a pristine path for high-resolution, highly detailed music to flow directly to the speaker for unrivaled sound in your Los Angeles, CA, home. Learn more about how Meridian delivers a superior music experience below.

In hi-fi audio, speakers are important, but so are the source components. The Meridian is the perfect source component for Meridian DSP speakers. Designed to work effortlessly with smartphone and tablet control and popular streaming platforms, it can flow music digitally directly to the speaker. The 210 packs an MQA decoder, the Meridian-developed format used by high-quality streaming services like Tidal to deliver next-level resolution and detail in music.

For ease of use, the 210 offers ethernet and Wi-Fi connections, the convenience of Bluetooth, and a USB input to connect your music download library. It’s also a Roon Ready endpoint for enthusiasts who want to use Roon for music library management. The 210 is a supremely flexible streaming component with excellent installation flexibility, only needing DSP speakers to form a complete hi-fi streaming system.


Active speakers are common nowadays in consumer audio, but no one has been making them for hi-fi use like Meridian. Part of the unique advantage of Meridian DSP speakers is that the music signal travels over a digital network connection to the speaker with no degradation, even over longer distances. Using proprietary technologies in the digital domain like Q-Sync to eliminate jitter, E3 Bass filters to enhance low-frequency response, and FFA (Full Frequency Alignment) to ensure that all frequencies reach the listener at the same time, Meridian speakers deliver impactful sound that belies the speakers’ size. From the compact DSP3200 bookshelf to the spectacular new DSP8000 XE Reference speaker, Meridian provides a memorable sonic experience.
