The M6 'At a Glance' sheet states..
Quote:
Features Meridian’s unique Enhanced Bass Alignment (EBA) technology - bass, mid and treble all reach you at the same time, in perfect alignment...

Enhanced Boundary Control - eliminates bass boom.

The 218 User Guide is more specific on EBC compared to that of the AC200...
Quote:
Enhanced Boundary Control: Compensates for reflective room surfaces. Choose between Off (unreflective), Min, Med, or Max (highly reflective).

Room height: Used for Enhanced Boundary Control calculations in loudspeakers with downward-firing drive units, such as the M6 or DSW, to compensate for reflections with the room ceiling. Can be varied between 150cm (58in) and 400cm (158in) in steps of 5cm (2in).

Yes, my bad, as I didn't realise M6 were EBA compatible.

EBC does come into play with them, as they have downward firing woofers, so the height measurement of the room must be input.

My question was whether the AC200 has an EBC setup option as I couldn't see it on the data sheet and the manual is superbly undetailed. If not, can one input this direct to the M6s during speaker config? Uncertain how this would be accomplished if the controller doesn't allow it, as the speakers have no display...

So, ensure you buy an AC200 built since April.
Thanks Spinaltap

Very interesting, My AC200 suffers from missing lines. I was quoted 150 pounds to fix it (replace display).

If what you say is correct, it is tantamount to Meridian admitting, that the original display was not fit for purpose.

I wonder if the same applies to display on M80 even though this is no longer in production.

The problem lies in the user guide’s published date (2010). Comparatively, the M6 user guide’s published date states 2012-2017, indicating that it was rewritten/updated.

Given that the AC200 was updated in April, 2018 you would think that Meridian would have similarly consolidated/rewritten the user guide... Who am I kidding... whistle

AC200 does have EBC control for the M6, in fact I think it was the first product to offer an EBC setting.
However this feature was introduced in a firmware revision, so the early AC200 would have to be firmware upgraded.
