Currently Meridian MQA endpoints have to do the decoding themselves then pass the signal on to SE speakers for rendering, it is a closed shop, although it shouldn’t be, so you would need a 218, 808v6, 818v3 to achieve full MQA.

Regarding Roon even though it can do the initial MQA decode it would break the Meridian chain and you would not get full MQA in your system, in Roon check device setup and ensure the ‘218’ or whatever you purchase is set up as decoder and renderer, Roon should do this automatically but it is worth checking.

On the Roon forum it was said that although technically the Meridian SE speakers should be able to accept an externally (Roon) decoded MQA file it requires a fix from Meridian and that they were aware, nothing has been posted on this by Meridian.

If Meridian fix this issue then it will allow Roon users the option to apply DSP adjustments to the MQA file without breaking it by decoding in Roon applying DSP adjustments and then rendering in the SE speakers, don’t hold your breath though.


If you give a man a fish he will eat for a day. But if you teach a man to fish he will buy an ugly hat. And if you talk about fish to a starving man then you are a consultant.

If at first you don't succeed, try again. Then quit. No use being a fool about it.
