Hi

May be in the market in around 3 months for some 2nd hand Meridian Speakers.

Was wondering how much I could expect to pay for a pair of 5200’s SL version with boxes, packaging etc.

Similar was recently discussed although suspect prices hoping to be paid were not for recent mint and boxed.

These sorts of posts always strike me as a 'lets talk down the prices of pieces of kit that many others have paid a lot for' type of thing.

In the US one would expect to pay around $4500.00 for the SL mint with boxes. The .2 would be upwards of $7000.00 and the SE would be about $10000.00 again mint and boxed

I just learned something... I thought 5200.2 and SL versions were the same thing 🤔

So there are 4 versions? Legacy coax connection, SL, .2, and SE?

The .2 was announced in a 2015 press release from Meridian. SL versions of the 5200 were available before then. The data sheet from 2009 was the first mention that I could find for the SL connection.

Looks like the .2 has a different tweeter, but it’s not the SE tweeter. Any other changes?

Yes the .2 has a new tweeter like in the 7200.2, lower crossover point for the tweeter, different voicing, DSP improvements, the electronics package has numerous changes, and all .2's have an improved cabinet design.

My approach was to take my time and monitor prices from various outlets. eBay is the easiest to monitor.

There are many factors to take into account such as condition, colour, accessories, original boxes as well as supply/demand at the time. what is important to you may not be to someone else.

There was a period not so long ago where mint SL examples were achieving sale prices between £1700-£2000 on eBay. I'm not trying to depress the price as I can say that I am not in the market for any. Use the eBay advanced search to check for sold prices. However the listings on there at the moment are much higher priced. They do not seem to be selling and keep being relisted - you can come to your own conclusion.

Buying through eBay comes with its own risk, so you may wish to pay slightly more and buy from a trusted member of this community.

Beware scams online. I almost fell for a particularly elaborate one. They had gone to the trouble of setting up a very professional and modern website for a “shipping and escrow company”. The “seller” sent me more pics showing the serial number when I asked for them. I asked where they had been bought, then checked with that dealer who said no they weren’t bought there. Turns out the pics had been stolen from an ad last year. Somebody went to a lot of trouble to set this up...

If the price seems to good to be true, it probably is. Get serial numbers and check the history through a dealer.

These days, I think you wouldn't be too far off in converting these prices directly to £s, from a reputable source/dealer.

Or just buy from a dealer, or someone of good reputation here.

Bruce,

How do I tell the 5200.2 from the previous model? What S/N did they start with? What year did they come out?

Thanks,

Rick

The 5200.2 came out in 2015. The tweeter has only a M on it instead of Boothroyd Stewart. I am not aware of any serial number based indications.
