Just a question of connecting a 218 Zone Controller from a Meridian HD621 using SpeakerLink or do I need something else?

Thanks ...

Is there SpeakerLink on HD621? There is MMHR output which is quite different but didn't think it had SpeakerLink.

Hi Justin,

There’s no SpeakerLink out on the HD621 (the RJ45 is for MMHR, which as a multichannel connection) so you’d need to connect the SPDIF RCA (1/2) from the HD621 and connect that into the 218.

What are you aiming for, maybe there are alternative options?

Regards,
Carl

Of course ... thanks...

What I’d like is MQA, streaming 2 channel sound that is higher quality than Apple Mac into HD621 and then into 7200 speakers.

My sources are Oppo 93, Virgin Cable TV, Apple Mac and Xbox.

What, if any, of your kit do you wish to play MQA files (or are you planning on buying additional kit)?

Justin

Do you have the HD621 setup at the moment. If so can you describe?

Cheers
Tom

Hi Justin,

I run an HD621 (for video sources) into the 218 and Roon via ethernet; it works well.

In addition to the audio connection you'll need a comms connection, a coax comms from one of the DSP's to the HD621 does the job nicely.

Cheers,
David.
