For me -

Roon Nucleus+
818v3
DSP8000SE
Appropriate infrastructure, room treatments, etc., which would have to be auditioned
A large room in a well-detached house to place it all in!

That would be for music, but an 861v8 and a brace of DSPs for cinema would be very nice too!

I’d swap the 818 for a Trinnov Alt32 which would give state of the art room correction and MC expansion options.


Main system - Sources (Kodi-HTPC, Vero 4k, FireTV, Sat) into Trinnov Altitude 32 (8-16) (+Roon), Trinnov Amplitude 8 amp & Vivid Audio (Giya G3, V1.5) and REL Stentor III speakers. Others: F80 + Raspberry Pi and other Pi systems.

I’m an MQA fan, though, so I wouldn’t for 2-channel. Possibly for multichannel, although I do love the Meridian sound so I bet I’d end up with an 861.

Inherent in my thinking on cost-no-object is that the room would be very well designed and treated, so I wouldn’t be using much in the way of RC.

I'm an MQA fan too and Roon (via the Trinnov) gives me the decoding. I'd rather have the RC than the secondary rendering. Also, I see RC as the room fine-tuning which you can't achieve with treatment alone.

Having heard a noticeable difference decoding only via Roon, vs the extra render in the 818v3, I'd still stick with the 818, until both are possible.

I take your point about fine tuning, but I think if the room is large and constructed properly, you can get most of the way there. A friend of mine has a room which sounds utterly sublime without any treatments at all, just because of dimensions/construction.

Hopefully, by the time I have the funds to do this(!) Meridian will have the 861v9 out with MQA and MRC wink

Haha, for me to earn the funds, or Meridian to produce a v9?

Lol, actually, I think you may see a v9 before I can afford the 8KSEs alone (although I hope I’m wrong) crazy

Same as mine except I would use a Trinnov in place of the 818... Trinnov RC will trump MQA anyday.


Roon/Tidal, SBT, Trinnov ST2 , Twin Devialet D premiers, Vivid Audio Giya G1 Spirits, dedicated and treated room.
Meridian gear: 568.2mm and DSP5000's acting as TV speakers.

With all these votes for the Trinnov, it’s about time Meridian added state of the art RC to the 818v4, isn’t it...?
