The HD621 traded back in will be shipped to Meridian and scrapped. - will be tends to suggest Rick will be supporting it.

Owners who choose to keep their HD621 don’t get any financial favour as they are keeping their HD621s - apart from some warm fuzzy feeling they retain some future possible value in their media kit?

But ok It just seems a waste to me to scrap perfectly ok working kit to give someone a warm fuzzy feeling.

The trade in programme will demand that the retailer has to ship the unit back to get the discount rebated.

What else do you expect Rick et al to do?

Give the £500 to the customer and then not claim it back on principle?




The traded units will turn up on the used market at somepoint, Meridian like to sell pallets of used/traded/refurbished/ex demo gear to hifi dealers, but it does allow Meridian to control the flow of units into the marketplace and the used values to some degree.

As a PP I think Rick was just imparting information to the rest of us.

Btw my home is littered with no longer used Sky, Bluray, Dune and Apple TV boxes and the companies concerned don't offer me a penny. In fact, Apple offered me £300 trade-in for a > £3K MacBook !

They may be calling it 'scrapped ' but they may still be harvesting parts for reuse from all those HD621s.

Meridian may well keep some of the HD621 for spares I expect, but I don't think you will see them refurbished and sold.

Of course you don't have to trade in your HD621, you could sell it on and use the proceeds to pay full price of £2,000 for the UHD722.

Exactly. A dealer pretty much has to follow the program. The trade in program is pretty generous given that it exceeds the current resale value for the units. Honestly there are plenty of HD621's out on the used market to satisfy any demand for them. I would imagine that most people who want an HD621 already have one. If on principle, you feel strongly against the recycling of your HD621 then speak with you wallet, don't take the trade in deal, and cough up full price.

The HD621 is quite a niche product - I can't see that there will be that many Meridian customers that will want to buy one when the new product is available. As mentioned, scrapped doesn't mean thrown away so it’s possible that it won't be that wasteful. What would you prefer to see?

Cheers
Tom

I think it's very interesting that the UHD722 will support ARC. I wonder if it's got CEC too?

One of the comments in the ISE 2018 thread has 2 videos in it. The one on the UHD722 explicitly references ARC, but makes no mention of CEC.

Unless I misheard he mentions ARC and SpeakerLink being connected somehow. I’m very confused. Anyone know more?

Hi,

I got the impression that the Audio Return Channel (ARC) from the TV would be routed to the UHD722's SpeakerLink out connection.

I don't think it would be also be routed to the MMHR / SPDIF outputs as I suspect they are dedicated to route audio from the HDMI inputs.

I guess there's question of which of the two HDMI outputs would the ARC come from.

Regards,
Carl

If that’s the case then the ARC would be pointless for me.
