DSP8000 XE

extreme edition

DSP8000 XE is the first product to emerge from Meridian’s groundbreaking Extreme Engineering Programme; a result of years of investment and research at the extreme edge of audio design and built upon the fundamental and unique elements of Meridian’s approach to delivering authentic, natural and lifelike sound.

A new design concept, Meridian’s Precision Sonic Transport, uses innovative techniques and processes which ensure the entire journey taken by an audio signal through a product maintains maximum sonic fidelity, so that the listener is immersed in authentic and realistic sound.

Construction

Separate head-unit isolates the all-new tweeter and mid-range driver from the main enclosure. Curved lines, based on an ellipse, contribute to rigidity and avoid parallel internal surfaces. Outer walls engineered from a layered combination of birch plywood, aluminium and resin are combined with substantial internal bracing to create an incredibly inert cabinet.
