Product Description

Meridian Media Core 200 is a multi-award winner, an elegantly compact streaming solution requiring only a controller, which you have a host of choices available. With the ability to store up to 2,000 CD albums with full lossless quality, and seamlessly integrating your collection, once you have experienced the ease of having a Media Core we are sure you will not go back.

Stylish, Compact and Silent

The Media Core 200 is very easy set-up and connect to your network, with a virtually silent operation. Using the Media Core could not be easier, you choose the controller you would prefer, such as the free iPad or iPhone app, music streaming controller, or your computer. With a host of Meridian’s audio enhancing DSP technology, the media core manages to perfectly blend cutting edge engineering and an elevated musical performance.

The Media Core 200 may be designed for your home but it shares the look of the industrial designs of Meridian’s streaming components, such as an anodized aluminium finish that hides the rear panel connections.

Signature Features

The on-board storage integrates automatically with your network libraries and provides a single audio zone, which you can access via analogue, digital or SpeakerLink for connecting to any sound system. Integrating easily with Meridian audio systems with a central control. The Media Core 200 is so named because it forms the central core of a modern integrated Hi-Fi system, it automatically identifies and integrates itself with other streaming components and any networked libraries (NAS drives), ensuring you have full interoperability.

The Media Core 200 provides a single audio zone, from where you connect other devices, through the Meridian SpeakerLink, digital coaxial, and single-ended analogue. The Media Core connects to a Meridian system with SpeakerLink, automatically starting communication protocols, integrates with the Meridian system for control and the audio. A further functionality is that you could use a browser to configure the analogue output connection to fixed or variable for maximum flexibility.

Apodising Filter

Filters are highly critical in digital audio, but they can introduce distortion into the signal as a consequence of "pre-ringing".  Early digital recordings can sound harsh, which is due to ringing caused by simple nature of primitive filters. However, after extensive R&D Meridian have developed a filter that avoids pre-ringing, and therefore it can have a steeper slope, which cleans up the effects of early filters. The result of using the advanced filtering techniques is to give you the listener a better, and cleaner presentation from your recordings, either old and new.

SpeakerLink

Standard traditional audio systems often require large, expensive cables to ensure good performance, however, Meridian are utilising a Cat-5 style cable (SpeakerLink) that is highly capable of delivering a pristine digital sound. The result of using SpeakerLink is simple, unobtrusive, and cost-effective cables that are easy to install.

Easy to set-up

The Media Core 200 is built around a vertical mount, so it does not require a fan, relying on convection cooling, ao consequently it runs virtually silently. Therefore, the unit can be placed anywhere, including within your listening area, without affecting your enjoyment of the music. All the complexity is kept strictly ‘under the bonnet,’ so setting it up is very simple, and is little more than ‘plug and play.’ Just add your choice of controller-iPad, iPhone, computer, or other Meridian controllers, for a complete streaming solution.
