First Name

  1. Hi, I have a Meridian DSP5200HC Centre Speaker and there's no sound, just very low bass coming out from the right cone. Is there a good audio repair store in Melbourne that does repair for a decent price? Thanks!
  2. Hi everyone... Does anyone have any thoughts or experiences using either of these players as transports? And which one do you think would perform better if used solely as a tranport? Thanks
  3. The Meridian Reference Two Channel Power Amplifier 857 just arrived and is being run in, although straight out of the box this thing of beauty amazes, with some very favourable comments from clients passing through the store yesterday. Currently hooked up to the dCS Bartok DAC, detail and control is incredible.
  4. We invite all Stereonet members and their friends and families to the Wavetrain Meridian open night on: Wednesday 15th February 2017 from 4pm Wavetrain's David Moseley and Scott Stidston will be showcasing the flagship DSP8000SE with some sweet MQA tunes via the Meridian sooloos system Also on show with be the M6 and the DSP3200. Come also to see the Wavetrain experience centre with the renown cinemas and Artnovion acoustic panels Hope to see you there, reply RSVP's will also be appreciated so that we can put on some refreshments
  5. Currently have a Meridian system with DSP 5000s (24/96) but the wife wants to simplify the look in the living room so no floorstanders Been looking/listening to Bookshelves and have come up with the following combo (best i have heard to date for the price) and would appreciate thoughts/suggestions Luxman 550AX integrated amp (class A) with B+W 805-3s Sources are various - currently have a Meridian 596 and a Cambridge CD transport - been streaming FLAC via Logitech Squeezebox but will also look to a new streamer and a DAC but that is another topic!!!! Love to hear thoughts on the speakers and if I will lose or gain on giving up the Meridians..
  6. OK, I'm playing with subs. I used to hate them, now I'm not so sure......... I have some very good Subwoofer plate amps, and I have a bunch of drivers at my disposal, nothing super high end, but some not bad, mostly in 10". I'd like to make a couple of subwoofers using these components, so am after advice for a suitable box design, for music, not for moofies. Single or dual woofer, I don't mind, but I'd like them to be smooth, accurate, and go as low as possible. Any suggestions? Thanks, Jason.
  7. Item: MERIDIAN 556 Dual Mono Stereo Power Amp in excellent condition Location: Melb SE Price: 900 plus shipping (have original box and packaging) Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: so can afford some valves ! Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal(at buyer cost), direct debit Extra Info: This is very rare ! a Meridian 556 Dual mono, stereo power amp in excellent condition (see pics) and comes with all original packaging so can ship any where in australia full info from meridian here, https://www.meridian-audio.info/public/556[78].pdf as it describes, "Meridian 556 The 556 is an outstanding 100W stereo amplifier which provides exquisite results with even the most demanding loudspeakers. The Meridian 556 houses two powerful amplifiers in a dual mono construction. The over-specified output stage uses 8 high-power transistors. These, combined with a low-noise 800VA toroidal transformer, permit this amplifier to deliver massive currents, ensuring no loss of performance even into loads that dip below 2 ohms. The power delivery of this amplifier makes it ideal for driving difficult loudspeaker loads. The 556 provides unbalanced inputs as well as twin outputs for bi-wiring. The topology of 556 is very much in the Meridian tradition. A high-precision, fast, DC-precise input stage is combined with fully complementary amplification and output stages. The 556 also uses Meridian’s well tried self-adjusting bias and error-correction output circuitry. As you may expect, the 556 is fully protected against DC and thermal overload." a couple of videos showing the amp in action in the meridian system (sorry both disc player and pre amp have sold) https://flic.kr/p/R6GQX5 https://flic.kr/p/2asYfEh Not that really does justice of what system actually sounds like in person. But I have been asked this question. What does it sound like ? Best I can describe it is the meridian sound via these pieces is Clean, clear completely lack any colouration/distortion. Yet is quite analog in sound ie not digital in any ways, quite natural sounding. Quite dynamic and with good wide sound stage width and depth lease note to facilitate an easy sale, I am quite happy for a local melbourne buyer to come pick this up and pay cash on pickup, alternatively no matter where you are in Australia I am willing to ship this to you at cost (please ask me for a quote). I take EXTREME care in packaging and will make sure it is packed well to get to you safely and also insured to its value for peace of mind. let me know if interested Pictures:

  14. Further information: The Meridian Prime is a combined DAC and headphone amp. Reviews are generally glowing, especially for headphone enthusiasts given the proprietary Analogue Spatial Processing that is offers. Comes with original box, wall wart charger, and DIY 12V linear power supply (charger/maintainer and speaker wire-to-25mm barrel plug interconnect). The DIY power supply permits the Prime to perform optimally in lieu of a Meridian Prime Power Supply that effectively does the same thing; however, these are PSU units expensive and hard to come by here in AUS. This unit draws 0.5mA so can be run for many hours with provided 5aH battery or longer with larger battery. Unfortunately lead acid battery can’t be sent via Sendle or Post as they’re classified as “Class 8 Corrosive” so pictured 12V 5aH battery this won’t be included in sale; however, these are relatively cheap ($20) and readily attainable from a local shop. All other components for DIY power supply are included in sale in addition to OEM wall wart power supply. Bought this unit to compare against the DAC in my Meridian 568.2MM Processor based on reviews and newer components; however, within my system the improvement in clarity heard from digital audio playback was not significant enough to warrant keeping. Would rather see this unit being used by someone who really enjoys it (as all quality gear should be!). Postage anywhere in AUS via Sendle is included in sale price. Thanks for looking and feel free to ask any questions.

  21. Item: Meridian 506.20 CD Player Location: Adelaide, SA 5052 Price: $200.00, LOCAL PICKUP or add $$ for shipping (I have original box but I think pick-up is best) Item Condition: Cosmetic V.Good, plays but drawer sticks Reason for selling: Not needed Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Extra Info: Original owner, CD draw mechanism is U/S - had it looked at but collet on draw shaft needs replacing and Meridian doesn't make parts anymore. Will donate 10% to SNA. Laser works fine, plays discs, just need to open/close drawer by hand. Meridian quality. COMMENT FROM LAMPAZitor site: (as a unbiased opinion, or if you wanted to modify it) Meridian 506.20 I never knew what to think about the Meridian players untill I examined one closely under the bonnet. Open kimono time! Is it built like a tank? No Is is a bolid ? No Does it have a granite floor, and 40 kilograms of electronics? No. But this is one of the best built machines period. If I was an engineer given a task to build a decent player, that's how I wish I could design it. ALL MONEY is spent where it matters. Good mechanism (althought it IS NOT a CDM1, 2 or even 4 - it is the 12, SORRY) Decent simple box SUPER COOL display, which has just enough information and not more Excellent PCB, with top class regulation, filtering etc. Good digital filter excellent DAC chip - all trully balanced (voltage output) 20 bit IC, which surprised me with its sound. Lampization is easy, the signal points are very easy to reach, no need for I/U conversion. Pictures: Yes
  22. Item: 5 x Meridian DSP5200 digital speakers (all floor standing vertical and matching in black piano veneer finish - L, C, R, RL and RR) 1 x Meridian SW5500 (dual cone sub) and finished in black piano veneer finish PLUS Buy the above speakers and sub and I will include at no extra cost: 1 x Meridian G68 Processor (including original Meridian remote) - rack shelf inc. 1 x Meridian HD621 HDMI Switch - rack mountable 1 x Middle Atlantic full size rack with custom shelves and power rails (other equipment and Blu-Rays not included) Location: Point Cook, Melbourne VIC 3030 Price: Asking price AUD $27.5k (Original purchase price AUD $80k plus) Item Condition: Mint, as new. Very light use (worked interstate for 5 years), no scratches or marks Reason for selling: A change of direction with my cinema has meant that I’m selling my full Meridian 5.1 setup. Meridian is regarded at the very upper end of 2-Channel and HT audio and recognised for their development of industry standard high resolution audio codecs such as PPCM and MQA. All pieces are ‘as new’ mint condition with no scratches. Very light use as I’ve been working out of state for the last five years. Meridian Audio: https://www.meridian-audio.com/ Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Cleared bank transfer Extra Info: Any questions please let me know. Happy to demo if you’re in Melbourne and given the weight and size of everything I’d prefer local pick up - if you really want to ship interstate, as long as you organise and pay freight, insurance, etc. Thanks for looking Chris PS. My camera skills are left wanting and do not do justice to Meridian. The cinema is completely black, so either hard to see or camera flash. Serial numbers available on request. Pictures:
  23. Further information: Selling as one whole lot. This is an extremely high quality system. Includes: Meridian 508.20 CD player (no remote) Technics SU-C-01 pre-amplifier Technics SE-C-01 DC power amplifier Technics SH-C-01 power supply unit Rotel RT-02 FM radio tuner (w/ remote) Sonos Connect ZP-90 NHT 2 way bookshelf speakers Photos :
  24. Item: Meridian DSP5200 + DSP5200HC + G68 (high gloss black speakers with silver processor) Location: Perth WA Price: 12k ono Item Condition: All in great condition, some swirl marks in the gloss though no scratches Reason for selling: Home renovations Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Meridian needs no introduction in the digital active speaker market as these guys are the pinnacle. This is an outstanding system and will be sad to see it go, but my loss is you gain. Retails at over $40k and the speakers are still a current model. Original boxes, cables etc. Will upload some more images as soon as I can. Prefer local sale. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  25. For sale: 2x Meridian 5500 DSP Loud Speakers. Bundled with an old studio sale 5 years ago, these have never left the spare room. They have not been tested as they require a DSP main unit to operate which is not included in the sale. I have powered them up and the LED's go on. There is some broken glass on the name plate on one of the speakers. Some paint chips on the timber but nothing obscene. Photo's included. I'm assuming this is a fair price for these speakers. dsp5500-digital-active-loudspeaker-datasheet.pdf
