The Meridian 556 houses two powerful amplifiers in a dual mono construction. The over-specified output stage uses 8 high-power transistors. These, combined with a low-noise 800VA toroidal transformer, permit this amplifier to deliver massive currents, ensuring no loss of performance even into loads that dip below 2 ohms. The power delivery of this amplifier makes it ideal for driving difficult loudspeaker loads. The 556 provides unbalanced inputs as well as twin outputs for bi-wiring. The topology of 556 is very much in the Meridian tradition. A high-precision, fast, DC-precise input stage is combined with fully complementary amplification and output stages. The 556 also uses Meridian’s well tried self-adjusting bias and error-correction output circuitry. As you may expect, the 556 is fully protected against DC and thermal overload."
