I've stuck with Meridian all the way to 8kSEs, because... Well, I think most of us on this forum know why. And I'm very happy with my decision and where I've ended up.

I genuinely look forward to the day when the following is no longer the case:

Sound nice too...

How much do Meridian spend on marketing? It seems very ineffective, whatever it is.

And KEF with their “all in one box” solution, it’s as though Meridian never made DSP speakers.

Wasn’t it ever thus though?

Wonder if Meridian missed a trick not putting the endpoint in the DSP speaker for a true all in one box solution?

Or an endpoint in an F80, or Airplay, could have become a Roon endpoint...

I seem to remember Meridian asking on HH what people wanted in an F80 replacement, lots of suggestions but nothing came of it.....
I think this was the F80 thread

The one-box wireless speaker market is one area that M have so far failed to move in on. Hopefully, that will change as they have a lot to offer. The recent LG link may help there.

Cutting edge HT is another area lacking, but they are so far behind the competition that I'm not sure they will ever catch up unless they form a strategic alliance (or two).



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.
