Product Description

Meridian DSP520.2 is the second generation of DSP520 powered by Merdian's patented "Class-M" DSP motor and featuring integrated "Dynamic" Hi-Res amplifiers. DSP520.2 brings Meridian's renowned sound quality discreetly in any living or cinema room and the added L+R feature also makes it a great soundbar solution.

This 2nd Gen has an all-new quad-amp DSP design with 4 powerful amps delivering over 100W RMS (8O/driver), full range sound with bass extending down to 40Hz and 114dB @1m. The speaker is stackable for high SPL systems >105dB at 9.4m in 5 stack configuration. DSP is optimised for horizontal or vertical mounting ideal for soundbar or centre channel.

Technologies

With its extensive R&D programme, Meridian has pioneered the development of a host of innovative audio technologies many of which feature in today’s Meridian products. Meridian loudspeakers feature a complete, matched audio system with efficient DSP crossovers, multiple DACs and driver-specific amplifiers for higher overall quality, less power use and the performance of a traditional loudspeaker eight times the physical volume.

SpeakerLink

Traditional audio systems often require large, expensive cables to maintain their performance. Meridian's SpeakerLink uses an “Ethernet style” cable that delivers pristine digital sound and control down a single cable between Meridian components. The result is simple, unobtrusive, and cost-effective cables that are easy to install

Fifo Buffering

Each sample of a digital recording must remain evenly spaced in time. Unfortunately, timing can vary, especially when reading discs. This is “jitter”, degrading music's sense of space and diminishing realism. Meridian's multiple “First In, First Out” buffering system minimises jitter, ensuring perfect timing and improved clarity. You enjoy a clearer feeling of the instruments and their interrelationship.

Apodising Filter

Filters are critical in digital audio. Commonly they introduce distortion and harshness because of "pre-ringing". Early digital recordings suffer from harshness too, due to primitive filters. After painstaking research, Meridian developed a special filter that avoids pre-ringing, so it can be steeper, cleaning up the effects of early filters. The result: a better, cleaner sound from recordings old and new.

Wide Range Driver

Loudspeakers use crossovers to “divide” music into bands their drivers can reproduce. This introduces distortion, reducing sound quality – particularly on human voice recordings. Designing a single driver for both mid and high frequencies made a crossover within the vocal range unnecessary, avoiding distortion and reproducing more lifelike vocals at all volume levels.

Enhanced Bass Alignment

All sounds travel at the same speed so all nuances from a live musical performance arrive at the same time, whatever frequencies they contain. Loudspeakers have a problem when playing low frequency sounds simultaneously as mid and high frequencies – bass arrives late and the deeper the sound, the later it arrives. This reduces impact and sense of the recorded space. The goal is to have time-accurate loudspeakers, where all reproduced frequencies start and end in harmony.

To eliminate delay, Meridian has designed a combination of digital filters and time delays for the mid and high frequencies to “wait” for the low frequencies, delivering perfectly-timed music playback. These features must be implemented entirely in the digital domain, making them impossible to achieve in any passive or analogue-active loudspeaker design. EBA provides accurate time-alignment of the drivers in the system delivering exceptional imaging and a clear, transparent and more lifelike sound.
