Meridian Audio Chosen for Superyachts

Europe's leading designer of innovative AV solutions for private superyachts, Genesis Technologies Marine, has partnered with Meridian Audio for the ultimate sound experience.

The fresh smell of salt in the air, a gentle glide over the swell, champagne in hand, and Meridian providing the ambient audio background - what more could you want?

With over 20 years of experience working with marine installers as a technology and AV service provider, Genesis Technologies Marine (GTM) produces custom-designed systems that are the epitome of refinement and sophistication to meet the yacht market's many specific needs.

And whether it's the in-ceiling speakers around the decks or an exclusive private cinema on-board, GTM delivers complete solutions featuring Meridian Audio products.

Barry Sheldrick, Meridian's Director of Sales, told StereoNET:

Superyachts are the epitome of luxury and high-performance engineering and Meridian is an ideal audio solution to address the demanding requirements of these installations. Our unique approach to audio design ensures our products save on heat, space, and weight, whilst delivering our renowned, superior sound performance, all of which are essential for yachts. 

Barry continued:

Meridian has been designing and specifying reliable, repeatable high-performance systems for theatre applications and audio systems all around the home for more than 25 years. This expertise, combined with our excellent dealer support services, are the foundations of this new and exciting partnership with Genesis Technologies Marine.

Meridian says the brand continues to grow rapidly and the new marine partnership is a natural progression for the business. It also builds upon the popularity of Meridian products within the residential and integration markets.

Rico Vogeli, CEO Genesis Technologies Marine, added:

Meridian's award-winning range of DSP loudspeakers combine innovative technologies with powerful and immersive sound. Spearheaded by the new flagship DSP8000 XE, their products offer a range of flexible installation and integration solutions, including on-board amplification and a shallow mounting-depth, essential for marine projects. We are excited to be working with the Meridian team and to bring their unique, high-fidelity products to the marine sector.

Meridian Audio products are certainly not unfamiliar to StereoNET, with the company being pioneers in the field and continuing to deliver new and innovative technology. We've already put our hands up to spend a week on one of the Meridian-equipped Superyachts; purely to review the system, of course!

    applause awards

    Each time StereoNET reviews a product, it is considered for an Applause Award. Winning one marks it out as a design of great quality and distinction – a special product in its class, on the grounds of either performance, value for money, or usually both.

    Applause Awards are personally issued by StereoNET’s global Editor-in-Chief, David Price – who has over three decades of experience reviewing hi-fi products at the highest level – after consulting with our senior editorial team. They are not automatically given with all reviews, nor can manufacturers purchase them.

    The StereoNET editorial team includes some of the world’s most experienced and respected hi-fi journalists with a vast wealth of knowledge. Some have edited popular English language hi-fi magazines, and others have been senior contributors to famous audio journals stretching back to the late 1970s. And we also employ professional IT and home theatre specialists who work at the cutting edge of today’s technology.

    We believe that no other online hi-fi and home cinema resource offers such expert knowledge, so when StereoNET gives an Applause Award, it is a trustworthy hallmark of quality. Receiving such an award is the prerequisite to becoming eligible for our annual Product of the Year awards, awarded only to the finest designs in their respective categories. Buyers of hi-fi, home cinema, and headphones can be sure that a StereoNET Applause Award winner is worthy of your most serious attention.
