Quite. It would have been a reason for me to purchase the original HD621 too. Was the cost of licensing (sorry I cannot find the reference) really the deal-breaker on this facility?

Kalman Rubinson's experiments with multichannel MQA suggest that they may become a commercial possibility. HDMI seems like a reasonable choice (commercially, not technically, given its ubiquity on disc players and streaming end-points) for delivering multi-channel MQA files. I was rather hoping for the UHD722 to offer some hints about MQA-related facilities.


Wonderful perfect quadraphonic sound with distortion levels so low as to make a brave man weep smile

That's not bad, but you could end up with three devices and limited comms. One to consider though.

For Netflix 4k, I think you could directly connect to your HD621.
A PC, Chromecast and future games consoles and future Amazon devices (sorry _M_) laugh .

In the US (and maybe everywhere) The trade in promotion expires on April 30th 2018.

You must supply your serial number of your trade in unit so that everything processes correctly. Trade in units must be taken in by the dealer and returned to Meridian within 30 days after receipt of the UHD722.

Units will receive a $800.00 trade in value unless purchased after September of 2017 at which those units will receive full retail credit. As this will be a very popular promotion with a limited duration, it is encouraged that those who wish to take advantage of this promotion do so quickly.

Group buys or other incentives will vary by dealer...

will Meridian do a fire pit ceremony burning all of those HD621's in a ritual sacrifice to the gods that allow for them to fleece their most loyal supporters?

i'm starting to think they jacked up the price of the 722 with this promo trade-in. it's like having a "sale" whereby you mark up the regular prices only to barely discount them, if at all. grin cool


hurry up! time is running out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!


edit: the pricing is clearly a direct function of the relatively inelastic demand for the 722 for those that currently have M processors; a gambit that could backfire.

I have owned the HD621 for 6 plus years and for M to offer me any kind of a trade in on it I feel is generous.

If someone purchased it within the last year they can get a full retail trade in that’s also very generous (regardless of the cost of the replacement product).

Not too many audio companies do that.

That's right, and NO company sells one that does what the UHD722 will do with your Meridian system. Please keep in mind, the HD621 from the time it was introduced in 2008 until 2015 was $3000.00 MSRP.

Meridian is offering a $800.00 trade in credit for something that can be as much as 10 years old. That really isn't a bad deal for those who paid full retail. It is and even better deal for those who got them second hand and aren't losing that much on the the deal.

Agreed that high-end audio video equipment (including Meridian's) is disproportionately expensive (high dev costs carried by few units sold).

On the other hand, Meridian, unlike the vast majority of other high-end companies offer upgrade paths for some of their products. As for me, I'm VERY happy that they do, even if the upgrade path sometimes hurts a little. At least it's there.

Also, unlike most high-end audio companies, Meridian makes some mainstream products (Explorer etc) & has its car-related business which will presumably give it another income stream.


Audio: MC200, G61R SL, HD621, DSP5500, 5500HC, DSP3100. Subs: 2 x REL G2.
Video: JVC X70, Black Diamond Zero Edge screen 129"(2.35).

I’ve owned my HD621 for eight years and it cost me £1,000, so £63 for each year of faultless ownership were I to upgrade now. Not too shabby really.

Fujifilm and Leica are the only companies I can think of that squeeze longevity out of sold products like Meridian do. Meridian don’t always come up trumps on the development front, but their products have always been bombproof for me and incredible value too.

I appreciate not everyone will have this experience, but I would like to express my support where it’s due smile

Thanks,
Mat
