Hello

I am sure some lucky person will have this on order soon? Link

The controls are on the wrong side, nice but not in my price bracket.

Possible heresy on a hi-fi forum but to improve the sound in my car I'd fit the 2k titanium quad exit sports exhaust...

Another heretic here. I just don't think the in-car environment can justify very expensive audio gear. I like to hear the vehicle noises for control and diagnostic reasons.

It's all luxury marketing hype.

I test drove the new Range Rover a few weeks ago. I didn't switch on the ICE system.

The car is excellent.

I used to think the same but my opinion is changing (I have owned several different 911's over the years). With family at home (kids) I get less and less time and space to indulge myself listening to music (and I don't have a 911 anymore!). In fact I listen to music in my "more practical" car way more than at home. Having heard the Meridian system I have to admit that it was pretty damn special and I definitely wouldn't mind it in my car!

Well, I'm about to change the head unit in my 2001 Merc to something with DAB, line-in, USB and Bluetooth. I spend ~80 mins per day in my car during which the radio is always on. It just happens that the two radio stations I listen to mostly are only available on DAB (6Music and JazzFM), hence the change.

I wonder how many days/months/years it will be after I make my purchase before Meridian releases a retrofit head unit?

I had a ten-speaker Dynaudio in-car system in my last car, and for me it was totally worth the 3000 premium (without navi).

I'd do that sort of thing again like a flash, although I'm not sure when I will next do the economically foolish thing of buying a brand new car...
