If that is the holdup up on 218, maybe its the same holdup on the earlier promised Sooloos decode - and whilst we are at it, firmware for existing Meridian kit, Roon and Tidal portable apps.

Not sure though why 218 et al may be different to 8x8, Explorer 2. Prime etc.

Would be nice if the floodgate doors were about to be opened.

Is it time to wake up yet?

Foz,

Thanks for answering the Oz price question.

Love that A$1 discount to prevent a A$1,500 price !

Cheers,

Steve M

An update from Meridian
Quote:
Thank you for your enquiry regarding the availability of the new 218 Zone Controller. We are aware that it has taken somewhat longer than we had hoped and indeed predicted to get the product launched and into the hands and systems of our loyal customers.

I understand that the first shipments of the 218 have been leaving Meridian in the last day or so. The initial numbers are sadly slightly limited in comparison to the significant number on order so there will be sometime before we have been able to fulfil all of the orders that have been placed.

We are shipping orders to our dealers in the order that they were placed so it is quite difficult to predict when you will actually receive yours. I will be in the office tomorrow and will get an update on how things are progressing.

I am really sorry that this has taken longer than expected but please let me assure you that this is a very significant product for Meridian and we are all working hard to get orders fulfilled as a highest priority.

So are these really all made in the U.K? Or is it like the US, where we "build" all Mercedes SUVs "except the G Wagon", but forget to mention that it's only final assembly and all the major components come from abroad?


Primary: MD600, MS200 (SpeakerLink to AES), Trinnov ST-2, Ayre V6-xe, Salk SS8 3x LRC.
Secondary: MC600 (whole house).
Zone one: 568.2, G57, MS200, Spatial Hologram M2SE.
Zone 2-6 (Awaiting assignment).

Sorry if this has already been commented on upthread ...

Looking at the back of the 218 - is the single digital input a 3.5mm jack?

You probably want to look back to posts around 15 March and make your own mind up. I think Rick had a definitive answer but I think those posts were all made before the production run so who knows.
