The cabinet vent s through a floorlevel wide area coupling slot; this configuration along with the active and DSP correction maintains smooth powerful bass in the room down to 30Hz with very low mid range colouration.

I think they would be gorgeous speakers, surprised some of the Meridian crew on here haven't jumped at these.

Firstly they sound great - certainly way, way better than you could expect for the asking price.

The price is mostly due to the fact that Meridian tends to be a closed system. For example these speakers also include the amplification and DAC's. Most people playing in this space already have amps, DAC's and cables that they are fond of. Also while Meridian speakers can be used in environments other than their own they work best when used with other Meridian components. The simplest way to achieve this with these speakers would be to also incorporate a Meridian 218 - or to source suitable S/Hand Meridian components.

Having said that these are still a bargain waiting for the right owner.

Thank you for the info, i have just been googling and reading lots on them for the past hour.

 

From what I have read and learned they will definitely appeal to someone who would like a turn key solution with not many cables to plug in and worry about.

 

Always great to see and learn about different products, i never knew they existed until today (awesome) ALWTS
