Hi All,

I have been fortunate enough to pick up a used Meridian 800v4dax . I can find very little information on the player other than the fact that it has a built in variable 24/192 analog 6 channel balanced output. I have interest in using it predominantly for redbook CD playback and am not interested in DVD video playback. Swapping the video input and output boards with a digital audio input board would be great if it is possible to use the device as a surround controller. I am patiently awaiting it’s arrival but in the meantime would love insight from any other 800v4 users or someone familiar with this model.

• Does the 800v4dax have Meridian apodizing ?
• Could I add an ID40 or IE42 input option instead of the video input / output cards?
• Does it support room correction?
• How does it stack up as a Preamp?


With thanks and kind regards,

Nick

No, Meridian did not release any updated firmware for it.

ID40 is not supported, not sure about IE42, best to check with Mconfig to see what cards you can add.

I owned a 800D which was a very good DVD-A source, but I don't know how well the 800v4dax stacks up.

Carl

Thank you for the prompt response Carl. I will spend some time fussing with the config software and report back on my progress.
