The M6 can be used as a single stand alone speaker receiving both left and right channels using the channel selector. Doing so allows you to take an M6 and put a single speaker in a audio zone and still get excellent sound.

That is a good question as the M6's have so far come boxed as pairs.

You sure?

I thought it was the regular L/C or R selector?

Never seen any mention of combining the left and right?

Yes, I am sure. I received and email from Meridian stating so. There is also a mention of it on the Meridian website: M6 Digital Active Loudspeaker.

I did some digging:

As other have said, it's a cool feature ... we have had a few enquires on here about using a single DSP in mono mode without having to hook up a processor.

It's a pity the M6 only has a SpeakerLink input.
