Is it just me...

Instead of being excited at something new from Meridian we're quick to criticise and moan about poor marketing etc. Of course some years ago maybe we'd have known all about this 'new' thing already having been let in on the secret before the public, but those days seem to have long gone.

Of course whatever excitement does exist is tempered by the disappointment we've faced over the last few years where nothing really exciting has come out from Meridian (apart from MQA perhaps; and maybe Roon - both spin-offs). The overwhelming feeling that both multi-channel and Sooloos are getting short thrift in development and a focus on custom install seems to be alienating the 'traditional' Meridian fan (or maybe just those of us left on here).

I hope I'm wrong - I love my Meridian gear and I hope the 'something' is truly great. But as my house rebuild is underway I'm looking at parting with the 861 and going Trinnov for multi-channel with the 271. Fortunately in the rest of the house I'm looking at custom install items so i'm still in the Meridian market but my enthusiasm for Meridian is waning.

Only things that makes sense to me are stand-mount and sub 'SE' versions, or an 'immersive' processor (but I can't see how you would get >8 discreet channels into it).

Or I'm well off the mark and its something like an Amazon Alexa device - which would at least justify the marketing route shocked !

Well, Meridian’s orginal moniker was ‘digital gramophone and wireless’.

Hi

I'm over 50, 60 too in fact, and I didn't find the tempter too problematic. A lot of companies like Canon and Nikon do similar things and nobody seems so take umbrage.

Having reached this milestone I have to say 60 ain’t as old as it used to be!

We do use social media (Some of us anyway) It’s the best way to stay in touch with musical artists and what they are up to, that’s for sure.

Teasers do tend to annoy though... running out of time now so just tell me or keep it quiet. I probably can’t really afford it anyway 😂


No 18 in the Hall of fame smile I have simple tastes; I am content to settle for the best: GIK monster bass panels, rear wall.
