The smallest of Meridian's Special Edition range of enhanced DSP Loudspeakers, the DSP5200SE is under a metre high but delivers exceptional performance. Here is where the Meridian DSP Loudspeaker philosophy really comes into its own, delivering simply stunning bass and full-range performance from a relatively small cabinet.
The Special Edition DSP Loudspeaker Range is the result of Meridian’s ongoing research into how we, as humans, “hear” sound. These findings dictated improvements that have led to the loudspeaker’s lifelike performance. Quite simply, the Special Edition DSP Loudspeakers, and matching centre channels, are the best sounding loudspeakers Meridian has ever created.
The Special Edition DSP Digital Active Loudspeakers from Meridian provide the most revealing, lifelike and powerful performance of any Meridian loudspeakers to date. Developed from expertise honed over more than 25 years of true research and continual system development, these new Special Edition loudspeakers specifically benefit from Meridian’s scientific research into how humans perceive sound, or ‘how we hear’, in particular focusing on how our brains process live sound.
Meridian’s philosophy takes understanding from neuroscience and psychoacoustics as the starting point for audio system design and places Meridian in a unique position to resolve the challenges of high-performance audio playback. Guided by original research and maintaining a focus on connecting our emotions with the artist's performance, Meridian’s engineers have addressed new important areas in developing these new Special Edition loudspeakers.
Building on major Meridian innovations such as Trifield, MHR encryption, MLP lossless coding, apodizing filters, and EBA (Enhanced Bass Alignment), the new Special Edition loudspeakers offer the most significant performance enhancement in recent years by delivering the highest resolution sound available. Meridian’s approach to high-resolution sound in the new Special Edition loudspeakers delivers a more accurate time-domain response and offers significantly improved transient speed across the entire digital active system.
