The DSP5500 is a powerful 3way active acoustic reflex system. The bass system uses two 200mm long throw composite bass-drivers. 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.
The mid-range is mounted in a separate enclosure and uses a custom 160mm polypropylene driver. The tweeter is the Meridian 25mm aluminum dome, silver wire tweeter used in all the DSP loudspeakers. Each of the four drive units has its own 75W power amplifier.

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

these look interested, how do they sound ?

 

and curious as to why they are from 35k down below 5k, not in a negative way, in a curious way.

 

if it is not an appropriate question in a sale, please let me know and i will delete it  🙂

It’s called depreciation.

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

      Price: $400 Item Condition: Very Good Shipping Options: Pickup is available,Audition is not available, but in-person pickup can be arranged with limited personal contact Suburb or Town: Secret Harbour State: Western Australia Payment Method: Paypal, EFT, Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: NLR Further information: 
       
      A great starter Tube Integrated Amplifier or perfect for an office/Second system setup.
      Alot of Amplifier for the money
      Price is $400 with standard tube or $550 with Siemens CCA tube. The Siemens CCA tube is highly regarded, expensive and rare.
      The Siemens tube was bought as NOS and has done about 50 hours.
      The Magnat MA400 has done about 100 hours and was used to play music in our dining/kitchen area connected to Revel 870 ceiling speakers. 
      It is in very good condition and looks really nice in a brushed black aluminium look and I nice front window for tube viewing.
      It has a phono section which I know nothing about as I  have not spun a record since I was a kid.
      It has tone control for bass and treble and can be adjusted from the remote control.
      I have all the original packaging so can ship if required.
      32 watts @ 8 ohms and 40 watts @ 4 ohms.
      I just connected it up to my Bryston Mini T 3 way 86db 4 ohm standmount speakers and it sounds really nice, obviously not driven loud.
       
      Can demo for locals.

      Price: $1200 Item Condition: Excellent Shipping Options: Pickup is available,Audition is not available, but in-person pickup can be arranged with limited personal contact Suburb or Town: Brisbane, Hillcrest State: Queensland Payment Method: Paypal, Cash, Bank Transfer Reason for selling: NLR Further information: 
      Repost: with price drop.
       
      Selling for $1200 each which is an excellent deal as these retail for $2599 each.
       
      They are excellent amplifiers that I have been very happy with since purchasing new maybe 2 years ago. Kept all the original packaging & paperwork including trigger cables that remain unused.
       
      I have 3 available as I was using them for my 3 front speakers including centre channel. 
      The brightness of the orange tube window on the front of the amp is completely adjustable & can be switched off.
       
      Information below regarding the Hybrid design. 
       
      A completely new combination amplifier was developed for the SP-T700, exploiting the respective advantages of tubes and transistors in an innovative manner, combining them to create a harmonious whole. The SP-T700 is characterised by excellent reproduction features that remain constant over the entire frequency and load range and it has a superior power reserve.
      The tubes are 100% selected frame grid tubes from the military sector. They are designed for a lifetime of 10,000 hours.
      The best of two worlds: Subtle reproduction of voices and acoustic instruments, plus the strength and punch of a huge rock stage – the SP-T700 is an exceptional power amplifier that meets such contradictory requirements with elegant ease. This is only possible due to the latest tube technology, combined with a transistor end stage. The outcome: Inspiring sound, plus strength and comprehensive speaker control.
       ............................................................................................

      Chartered Engineer Frank Blöhbaum (Developer) about the SP-T700:

      A globally unique and completely newly developed tube amplifier works in combination with a transistor output stage inside the SP-T700 power amplifier. The tube input stage receives the music signals and amplifies them with the highes purity and clarity. The transistor power amplifier controlled by the tube stage delivers „only“ the required corrent to control even critical loudspeakers with ease.
      The circuit principle of the tube amplifier used here - a directly coupled transconductance amplifier with highly constant current and voltage conditions for the amplifier tube – leads to a very high voltage amplification with a high linearity and very broad band width. A highly linear driver stage, created using the frame grid pentode 6SCH9P, ensures easy controlling of the transistor buffer.
            In order to fully exploit the advantages of the novel amplifier concept in the SP-T700, only the best was used for the power supply unit as well: A 6Z4 tube works as a rectifier for the tube stage. The voltage feed is electronically controlled and sieved afterwards. The transistor buffer is based on a high-performance power supply unit, comprising an over-dimensioned torodial transformer and switching-stable electrolytic capacitors.
