DSP8000 SE

Special Edition

Built by hand in the UK, Meridian have designed and engineered the DSP8000SE to deliver maximum resonance and control. The cabinet comprises of two discrete enclosures with a dedicated bass section and a separate head-assembly for the midrange and high-frequency drive-units. The two enclosures are decoupled from each other by custom spikes and cups. The custom-designed midrange unit and three pairs of horizontally opposed bass-drivers feature anodised aluminium clamp rings to minimise resonance.

Meridian’s zero-compromise approach maximises the capabilities of the loudspeaker’s wideband electronics and its beryllium tweeter, guaranteeing an authentic, lifelike and natural sound. The seismic bass, effortless midrange and high-frequency extension means your music and movies will be brought to life in any room size up to 100m2.

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 increases the resolution, detail and clarity of the sound you hear to deliver a sublime listening experience.
