Apparently, the MS200 has been discontinued. It’s ‘replacement’ is the 218 - at x2.5 the price of the MS200.

Is the custom installation range to replace mainstream Meridian kit?

The 218 has a different, larger, feature set.

Wasn’t the MS200 £500 when it was released? So the 218 is 1.5 times the price which considering the additional features is probably about right, not a fair comparison to look at the ‘obsolete product’ run out price.

Did we know the MS200 was officially not longer a current product or did we just find out from Martins HiFi's post?


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

It’s still a great product if you don’t wish to decode MQA, in non critical zones for sure.

Maybe the ‘210’ is due for release?

I wonder if the delay on AirPlay2 is holding up the launch of the 210.

MS200 discontinued is a shame. Analogue Out was and still is very useful.

I don't think there's any 'secrecy' going on.

The MS200 was moved from the current to the 'Older Products' part of the Meridian website.

Cheers,
Jason.

I think the comment was directed at the lack of information on the 210.

All part of a very clever marketing campaign confused

Hi Koputai
I am very happy with my MS200, I go to sleep with it most nights.

Secrecy, I was referring to the lack of detail on the 210! A product due for release that has been announced and shown at major exhibition with no details, how gullible are existing prospective customers?

I hope M can solve their product launch reticence and advise product details on the 210 re what it will and will not do.

Best Hector

Perhaps they’ve run out of spare parts and decided to cut out the years of production and cut straight to the “no longer supported” part of the story. mad

To be fair, I’ve never heard of anyone having a failed MS200. Or am wrong?

I am sure they are still supported and should be for a while, just no longer a current product.

Any MS200 sold as new between now and June has a 5 year warranty. MS200 failures are extremely rare.

Whilst an admittedly grumpy reply based on several items I own being irreparable and potential more fragile than I would like, my comment was tongue-in-cheek and aimed at the by now fabled 210. Sadly jokes are less funny when explanation is involved, I’ll get my coat!
