My neighbour has an XF - very high end version, incredible performance. He only noticed it had a Meridian system because he knows about my love (vice) of M.
He said it sounds very good (and it does) but he only listens on radio. I tried to encourage him to load some good stuff onto the hard drive, but he has not bothered so far. It will only happen if I do it for him.
I would love such a system in my 911 which has the Bose enhanced system - frankly that's pretty mediocre.
At the end I prefer driving a 911 to XF despite the flawed audio. Pays your money and you takes your choice as they say.
