E could have been for expansive audio!

This could have been mega product if it had Atmos and DTSX processing with extraction of height channels as well as 7.1. Lets hope for upgrade.

It sounds more like VEMMHR.

And probably even more expensive with the licensing costs?

I've got a sense of déjà vu with the UHD722, specifically that Meridian never made a Blu-Ray player. I wonder if the new surround formats are too much in terms of development and licensing, or whether the UHD722 is simply a "holding pattern" device.

How much can the licensing be when these formats are starting to appear on LG soundbars!

Also from Meridian’s point of view, how many extra DSPs might they sell for those height channels!

Probably more than a small company is willing to pay, also they need to be able to update when the ‘new’ versions of the codecs are announced, this may just be a firmware change but it may require a hardware change, I would guess LG do more business in a day than Meridian do in a year so they can’t really be compared.
I have an LG Atmos capable sound-bar and am a happy customer.

License fees can be substantial. Especially when those fees are major factors when considering whether or not to put an optical port on a component.

Meridian can sell lots of DSP speakers for height channels once the 271 is available.

Perhaps if they stopped overcharging for hardware and 'intellectual property' for their own customers they could change their business plan . They still pay for THX and are Dolby licensees (TrueHD is based on their own MLP) after all . I've never felt that M were in any way slow to pass on the cost of these things anyway so why have they been so sluggish for the last decade ? And no Bluray player , whatever happened to ' follow the catalogue ' as they have always said ?

~M~


Mostly harmless. Comfortably numb.

M sold the IP rights on those, years back (I believe it funded the move to their present HQ / Manufacturing site).
