I bet £2000 or more. You saw the price increases for everything else...

I would want built-in Atmos decoding etc for >£2k.

M have been behind the curve for far too long and only providing a solution (271) for someone with a £400 Denon receiver while ignoring those who have invested heavily over time in M speakers is living in denial.

Bluray, 4K Bluray and Streaming can all use Atmos so the content is already out there .

(Or will there be an actual 7.1 G-Series and this will be required for 7.1 content?)

Yes but we are optimistically exploring what useful extra functionality it might include to justify its existence and, likely high, price.

We know:
- supports UHD sources
- 7 inputs
- 2 outputs
- strips discrete hi-res audio from video

We need:
- DD and DD+ onboard decoding, since most HDMI/HD sources use them as the primary audio codec

We would like:
- Atmos, etc. support
- a lower price point than the HD621

Has anyone seen any photos? Would like to know if it uses same chassis as the HD621 (will HD621 be upgradable) or does it come in a completely new box.


Thanks, Edd

Not sure I follow you here. How is Meridian ignoring those heavily invested in DSP speakers by making a interface that allows the use of other processors?

It is quite the contrary, as the 271 keeps those speakers relevant in todays multichannel environment. Sure, you could use a £400 Denon receiver and you can also use a top of tbe line Trinnov. It opens up alot of possibilities.

I would guess the UHD722 is primarily a 4K switch for use with the 861 and I wouldn't be surprised if it didn't have any decoding functions. If you are planning to use another processor (Marantz or Trinnov) with the 271 you don't need the UHD722.

I'd be amazed if the UHD722 could decode Atmos etc. - that would require details of speaker layout, distances etc. and a lot of processing power.


Main system - Sources (Kodi-HTPC, FireTV, Sat) into Trinnov Altitude 32 (8-16) (+Roon), Trinnov Amplitude 8 amp & Vivid Audio (Giya G3, V1.5) and REL Stentor III speakers. Others: F80 + Raspberry Pi and other Pi systems.

None of them involving M's own processors which would be the preferred option. I think most people would endure a £500 premium (more than the cost of the Denon) to keep their system all-Meridian.

That's not to say that I'm not wildly envious of Cliff's Trinnov :O) it's just simply not an option for me.

Good point which I had not considered.

Well, CEDIA is now basically over. I thought from Meridian's press release that they would be introducing the 722 and start taking orders. Product release sometime later this year.

Has anyone heard anything at all. Nothing online that I can find.
