The M6 can be used as a single stand alone speaker receiving both left and right channels using the channel selector. Doing so allows you to take an M6 and put a single speaker in a audio zone and still get excellent sound.

Will there be the option to buy a single speaker?

That is a good question as the M6's have so far come boxed as pairs.

You sure?

I thought it was the regular L/C or R selector?

Never seen any mention of combining the left and right?

Yes, I am sure. I received and email from Meridian stating so. There is also a mention of it on the Meridian website: M6 Digital Active Loudspeaker.

As other have said, it's a cool feature ... we have had a few enquires on here about using a single DSP in mono mode without having to hook up a processor.

It's a pity the M6 only has a SpeakerLink input.

Just found out about this cool feature from Meridian's Facebook feed.

Page 3 of the old manual does not show this feature, while page 3 of this more recent manual does.

Is this an in-production change limited to later serial numbers or is it available retrospectively?


Wonderful perfect quadraphonic sound with distortion levels so low as to make a brave man weep smile

Hi Gianni,

This mono feature was added a few months ago, but I'm afraid isn't available as an upgrade to earlier models.
