Meridian Audio, the high-end specialist, has unveiled its latest all-in-one, the M80. And, because it’s Meridian you know that you’re going to be paying out quite a hefty price. And £1500(Check out new prices and buy it from Amazon) is what you will need to shell out for this particular piece of kit.
The M80 has all the standard features of a home entertainment center: a CD/DVD player, an FM/AM Radio, an iPod dock, digital/analog inputs and a 2.1 DSP loudspeaker system to fill the room with beautiful music.
The M80 features the same award-winning Meridian technologies as the company’s larger systems, extracting every detail from a recording. The beautifully-sculpted elliptical cabinet, crafted of custom mineral composite, gives the system a discreet, yet stylish presence. It houses a powerful 80-watt 2.1 Digital Signal Processing (DSP) stereo system with a rearmounted subwoofer, slot-loading CD/DVD drive and AM/FM/DAB Digital Radio, in addition to multiple analogue and digital inputs that combine to deliver a versatile and powerful audio package. Meridian’s advanced DSP capability, coupled with location compensation controls, ensure the same superior acoustic performance at any volume, regardless of the size of the room and where the M80 is situated within it.
Connectivity is a bit lacking on this curved system, however, with USB and mini-DIN support. No HDMI, strangely. Available in three shades (chestnut, ivory and black) in a leather finish.
