Shame the 210 doesn't seem to support RAAT as well.

Shame they couldn't just roll it up into the 218 as a single network endpoint.

What exactly is meant by "streamer". And how do they integrate those services.

Is this an MC200 replacement with those services added to the Sooloos backend?

All will become clear later, I guess.

I too hope RAAT is supported. I've never managed to get my ID40 + ID41 to play fair with both Sooloos and Roon.

Looks like I jumped a week too early when I bought the rBlink for my son's DSP5000s last week, unless of course the 210 has no SPDIF connection.

Hi Ludwig,

I'm hoping this is a simple Bluetooth link to Meridian speakers that will handle music files and streaming services from phones, laptops etc. My (young adult) children only listen to music from their phone/laptop and moan at me CONSTANTLY that they can't play their playlists on my system.

Hopefully this is the ideal bridge into Meridian systems and allows us oldies to help them utilise all these second hand 'retro styled' legacy actives kicking around...

I take it this means adding Airplay requires a paid hardware option.

It looks like there was an attempt to add this via software (Control 15 software includes shairport-sync) - but I've never played with a real one to see if there is an easy way to turn it on. (I've never seen any references to it as a feature, only appears in the Control:One/Ten/Fifteen software (now obsolete), and I never had a need to use Airplay to actually test it out)

Presumably the 218 per zone replaces Sooloos Core initial decode of MQA that was actually promised (feedback would be nice).

Google Caskeid.com and all may become clear. M signed an agreement for wireless technology from them a couple of years back 😀 May even deliver miltichannel hi Rez playback.

It would be a shame if the 218 can't get a software update. MQA and Meridian are listed on their website as partners. Roon is not listed. Could this be the technology which reawakens Sooloos? Could Spotify, etc. be offered along with Tidal?

Okay, so I get that they need new hardware to support Bluetooth input, but I would think that Airplay and Spotify could and should be added to their existing Sooloos products?

Photo in this tweet from 5 days ago had me scratching my head. The unusual layout on the board. Looks like it may be a card? Is it the streamer itself or a part of it?

It look like more a small PCB with filter parts from a PS input?

It could be a small unit for a rack which make sense for custom installations as like all other new products from M are.

I suspect that the 210 formal debut will follow on the heels of Apple's likely announcement of FLAC hi-res file compatibility with iTunes/iOS 11.

I attended CEDIA and the 210 on display was a prototype (only a small black box with no rear connections similar in size to the 218). I'm sorry I didn't take a photo. If I'm not mistaken the sign said coming later this year.

You can briefly see it at 1 min! Very briefly though...

US$750, shipping TBD.
Will have SpeakerLink and could therefore be used to stream AirPlay, BT & Spotify music to DSPs using only the 210.

Thanks, but without proper specs impossible to know what the thing is at all. Does it even have onboard storage? (If it's the box at the bottom it looks tiny, like a NUC.)

Would love to see a photo of the business end as well as the specs myself. I was merely transcribing what I heard the M representative say in the video to save people time.

Although, why do some think this streamer would have storage? I expect this to be a box that converts (for lack of a better word) BT, AirPlay and Spotify to SpeakerLink.

From the lack of details on the workings of the 210 in the video other than it will stream, the position on the bottom shelf with no closeup image and an open timeline on its release I suspect it may well have been a dummy case?


Always learn from the mistakes of others. You can never live long enough to make them all yourself.

Very interested to hear this, given how dCs are able to flatter Spotify in their own kit. I've mentioned before, but I was gobsmacked at how they produced a silk purse...

Sure it does. A Timex and a Rolex both tell time too. Some of my customers replace Apple TV's frequently enough that in a ten year time they will have come pretty close to the cost of the 210.

I agree comparing Apple TV to the 210 is not really relevant.


Always learn from the mistakes of others. You can never live long enough to make them all yourself.

An AppleTV truncates its audio output to 16/48: an AirPort Express doesn’t - it passes its 16/44 (toslink) signal intact. That makes the 210 way over priced for what it does, just because it has ‘Meridian’ printed on it.

Not making any judgements about the MSRP of the 210, but presumably the Meridian badge also comes with integration features such as SpeakerLink. This will enable volume control etc.

Exactly. I would also expect that it would be capable of higher resolution as well.

Sorry I was clearly being too obtuse, not for the first time.

Did we ever get an answer if this thing is an endpoint for MQA?

By deduction, isn’t the unit top left in this picture the 210? Looks similar to the 218 next to it, only without the Analog In/Out.

The left unit might actually be another 218, with what seems to be a piece of paper masking the analogue in/out.

Haha you are correct. I had to zoom in. It’s a piece of a shelf blocking those ports. False alarm!

I asked them loads of question about the 210 and roadmap in general on that very image.
All deleted within hours.

Nothing that I’m aware of but we might be waiting on Apple launching Airplay2.

I expect it is 'all hands on deck' to get the 271 out at the moment, and once that's available attention will move to 210.
Best guess July / August?
