Meridian Audio will once again be demonstrating several new high-performance and flagship products at the LA Audio Show this weekend, June 2-4 at the Sheraton Gateway Hotel in Los Angeles, in Suite 462. Hosted in collaboration with the Los Angeles & Orange County Audio Society, the LA Audio Show is the US West Coast's epicenter for discovering the best and latest audio technologies from leading global manufacturers and dealers.
"We love the LA Audio Show because it gives us a chance to perform demos in an intimate, controlled environment away from the cacophony of a tradeshow floor," says Ryan Donaher, V.P. of Meridian America. "We also love that it focuses solely on audio, allowing listeners who are interested in truly great sound to get a concentrated dose of what they came for. Meridian's demo will not disappoint."
The company will focus on high-performance, high-resolution audio with a complete system consisting of its finest products, including:
Meridian DSP7200 Speaker System
The Special Edition series of Meridian loudspeakers represent the pinnacle of Meridian's loudspeaker design. Built by hand in the UK, each Meridian Special Edition DSP7200 is a Digital Active loudspeaker containing Digital Signal Processing (DSP) technology. This ingenious, yet elegant design means that the loudspeaker enclosure contains the entire system's electronics, including its amplification. With an ability to deliver the very best from High-Resolution sources, including MQA, the performance of the Meridian Special Edition DSP7200 demonstrates why Meridian is widely regarded as the Pioneer of High-Resolution Audio.
Meridian 808v6 Signature Reference CD Player
Meridian has an indelible role in the history of the CD player, with a proud track record of state-of-the-art, award-winning players. The 808v6 Signature Reference CD Player is the fruit of that legacy, and it continues to push the boundaries of both design and sound performance. Extremely advanced high-end audio technologies drastically reduce digital errors, as well as offer an unparalleled array of set-up options and connections.

Control features, including IP and IR, allow this versatile unit to be easily partnered with any of Meridian's power amplifiers or DSP loudspeakers.
