Meridian 258 8-Channel Power Amplifier

This powerful, high performance, cold-running Class D amplifier is suitable for a wide range of applications.

It delivers more than 100W per channel into 4 Ohms and more than 70W per channel per channel into 8 Ohms.

Only 1U high minimises rack space required, and it's cool-running from Class D reduces rack ventilation requirements.

The 258 comes with a 5 year manufacturer’s warranty,

The MSRP at launch will be £1500 (GBP) here in the UK.

What are those weird output connectors on the other photo (which is in the gallery but not in your posting)?

So these would be combined with 4 x 218s? I think that would be very clean. Thinking of some nice ceiling speakers throughout the house now!

Yep the green insulation is the Phoenix Contact house colour. Need a better pic to identify (assume 2 pole) probably PCB connector.

Edit
Thanks Carl for the pic obviously well known to you in the industrial world, however I am surprised at the screw termination in today's world. But has the advantage of being easy to terminate without special tools.

A great many amplifiers for multiroom use phoenix connectors for speaker terminations. Pretty common in both residential and commercial audio applications. Pheonix type connectors are made in black however. Have seen blue and orange as well.

Yes, but in general original Phoenix products are GREEN. But OK for high volume they will concede to customer wishes. Also there are copies out there.

Quite a few analogue products are coming out of the Meridian stable of late or is it my imagination?


Main system - Sources (Kodi-HTPC, Vero 4k, FireTV, Sat) into Trinnov Altitude 32 (8-16) (+Roon), Trinnov Amplitude 8 amp & Vivid Audio (Giya G3, V1.5) and REL Stentor III speakers. Others: F80 + Raspberry Pi and other Pi systems.

Was thinking the same. I'm sure they're just building up to the 861v9 announcement!

Rick,

Any chance there is a 2 or 4 channel version in the works? Could be great for individual rooms, with a controller for each room.

Thanks
