Product G02 2 Channel Balanced Analogue Pre-Amp 
Manufacturer Meridian 
Category Preamplifiers 
Price POA 
Notes Meridian’s G Series line of high performance digital & analogue consumer audio components feature a stylish cabinet design in traditional black or a sleek silver finish. Designed to be either free-standing or rack-mounted, G Series components build on their predecessors, the multi-award-winning 500 and our flagship 800 Series, and include entirely new circuitry developed specifically for the G Series. Multi-layer boards reduce system noise and improve performance. In products which include video capabilities, broadcast-quality, wide-bandwidth video components are employed for maximum image integrity.G Series units are easy to use. Where appropriate, a knob is included to control volume. The positive-action front-panel keys are software-defined: their legends are presented in the vacuum fluorescent display and change intelligently according to context.Full installation configuration of many G Series components is achieved by running a special setup program on a Windows computer, connected to the G Series unit via a serial link, or direct from the front panel.G Series products also include serial ports for remote operation and configuration, along with infra-red sensor input and trigger capabilities, plus Meridian communications ports. A comprehensive back-lit learning/programmable remote is included with products other than amplifiers. Meridian has a strong reputation for preamps, and the G02’s predecessor, the 502, was no exception. Building on the success of the 502, the Meridian G02 is a true dual-mono analogue control unit/preamplifier with an extremely high-quality power supply for ultra-low noise and distortion. Featuring a fully-balanced signal path throughout, it is an ideal complement for the G Series power amplifiers and is particularly suited to those who wish to maintain a balanced, analogue signal path at the very highest quality of reproduction.Although Meridian is today best-known for its digital circuitry, it is a company built on analogue roots, and indeed, superb analogue circuit design and implementation are important parts of all Meridian products, whether their inputs and outputs are analogue or digital.Balanced operation has always been preferred in the professional audio industry, as it can significantly reduce hum and noise and make the system immune to interference. The G02 brings this philosophy to the G Series. Including both a preamplifier and controller, the G02 dual-mono control unit provides no less than seven two-channel analogue inputs. Four of these – nominally designated Aux, Radio, TV and VCR (though these designations can be changed) – are unbalanced; while the remaining three – CD, Tape and Disc – offer balanced inputs on XLR connectors.
