Is asking a question in response to a statement, 'twisting things'?

Yeah, I get it. People want an upgrade to the 861. They want Atmos.

But this is an info post from a respected dealer about a control app for a 218. Has ANYONE at any point said the 218 was multichannel.

Like I say, getting a bit bored by the snarkey comments. But by all means carry on and hijack this thread and make your point. Then complain that no dealers ever post here.

Cheers

I made a tongue-in-cheek comment to a reference to products AFTER the 218. Lighten up!

From the original post
Quote:
As there's bound to be discussion about this new product, I've started a thread here specifically for 218
So why start making snarkey posts that don't add any value. Let's face it, there are plenty of other threads you could do that in.

Like I say, a respected dealer, posts an info thread at the weekend. Why not have a little think before you hit that reply button.

I feel pretty light to be honest. I've pretty much kept up with all the latest upgrades. SE is STUNNING, 808.6 is sublime. My system has NEVER sounded better. I use a G61 for movies and it sounds great to me. Yeah doesn't have atmos but at least I don't have to drill about 8 holes in my ceiling.

Have a good evening.

Cheers
Greg

You have a good evening too, although I think some further lightening up is required.

SkyArts channel last night had Chris Packham (wildlife guy) with Nitin Sawnhey (awesome music guy) doing a programme about music and animals.

Really good watch with many examples like the cockatoo.

Received a 'phone call from Meridian this morning - well within the 72 hours (limit) promised !

Seems that the 218's their absolute priority at the mo' & they're working flat out to get the first batch shipped in the 3rd week of April - unless there are any as-yet-undiscovered-problems of course !

The general frustration (that some of us feel) is understood but the philosophy is to get this box of tricks right first time as it's a complex little beastie & opens up a raft of opportunities for Meridian....it's not only aimed at those of us wanting to connect it to an 861 for MQA....although we're probably the most impatient / vociferous !

I will continue to wait & chew my nails, because after all what else can I do (?!), but the contact & discussion from / with Meridian was genuinely appreciated.


Meridian : 861v8 + ID41 + HD621 + 218, 2*SE-update DSP8.2K's, SE-update DSP7200HC. Roon.

Good news indeed, can't wait for the first review and how it is perceived in the M device pecking order.

Any idea if this API will be published for third party integration? This is often the case.
