Interesting. Didn’t think there was any way to stuff a linear supply into a box that small.

Hi All,

The 218 power supply is actually switch mode.

The 218 data sheet has been amended accordingly, some time ago I believe.

Apologies for any confusion caused.

Cheers,
Rick

Hi Rick
Could you please advise if the 258 preliminary data (which as far as the power supply is concerned is exactly the same as 218) is linear or switched mode?

Awaiting your valued response.

The 251 is listed as having a linear PSU on Meridian’s website see below, is this correct? Seems unlikely based on what Rick says on the 218?

POWER
Advanced linear power supply: 110–120V ac 50–60Hz | 220-240V ac 50-60Hz

I have to say that I feel very misled by Meridian about this. It seemed to me that they made quite a selling point about the linear power supply in the 218.

Went to You Tube and found a promo video of 258. Definitely (big) Linear PSU.
