Notes on ProductMeridian DSP33 Digital Active Loudspeaker The DSP33 Digital Active Loudspeaker is a remarkable combination of unique Meridian technologies in a compact package. The result is a loudspeaker that is elegant, articulate and versatile - high technology and high fidelity. The DSP33 is deceptively small. Its bass extension is startling for its size and remains fully controlled under all conditions. It projects a dramatic soundstage - detailed yet smooth, grand yet intimate. The DSP33 is packed with the very latest in audio technology for the new generation of high-resolution sources. Product/DSP33 Active Loudspeaker Signal Processing The DSP33’s two digital inputs can accept up to 96kHz/24bit sources, including Meridian High Resolution (MHR) streams from Meridian Processors and DVD players. The unique Meridian DSP processing is performed on a brand new 100 MIPS Motorola DSP, the 56364. Like the other members of the Meridian DSP Speaker family, the DSP33 Signal Processing includes: • FIFO memory buffer input for the lowest possible jitter from almost any source • Linear-phase crossover for precision drive unit integration not possible with analogue techniques • Tweeter delay for perfect driver alignment • 48-bit resolution volume control • Minimal frequency equalisation to give a frequency response free from drive unit or electronic colouration • Transparent tone controls • Absolute phase control and phase-corrected balance control The extraordinary big box sound of the DSP33 is achieved using exciting new signal processing developments. Meridian’s active bass extension deepens the response without excessive woofer excursion. At moderate volumes, a psychoacoustially correct extension filter extends the bass still further. At high volumes DSP bass protection helps prevent the woofers from bottoming. Only the very lowest frequencies are reduced. Electronics The electronics of the DSP33 are designed using the very latest techniques. Extensive use of 4 and 6 layer PCBs and surface mount components allow the hardware of Meridian DSP Loudspeakers to be compacted into this cabinet without compromise. Components are carefully chosen and include many polypropylene capacitors and Van den Hul internal wiring. The DACs are the very latest 96kHz/24 bit devices. At the heart of the DSP33 are the twin amplifiers, which make use of our latest research into idealised low feedback amplifier design. These give high power - 85W Bass and 65W Treble. Careful attention to star earthing and high speed bipolar output devices combine to give very fast bass and high resolution. The system has extremely low levels of noise and distortion. The power supply includes a substantial torroidal transformer and audiophile grade capacitors. Acoustics The cabinet and drivers owe much to the DSP33’s active cousin, the M33, of which Corey Greenburg said “The first thing I noticed about the M33s was their startlingly clear and detailed midrange”. The cabinet is manufactured from precision cast and extruded aluminium. This has incredibly low levels of low frequency cabinet resonance. Additional high frequency damping gives the whole system exceptionally little cabinet colouration, for excellent mid-range transparency. The bass drive units are two parallel 5" woofers with cast alloy chassis and carbon fibre cones. They have very large shielded magnets which provide excellent drive and control. The tweeter is a very high quality 1" aluminium dome with a Neodymium magnet and a protective grille. It is extremely well matched to the woofer and also tonally very compatible with the other speakers in the Meridian range. Applications The DSP33 is designed to be used in many different types of system. It is easy to install - for most applications it requires no setting up beyond channel selection with the rear panel switch. The remarkable bass extension of the DSP33 makes it a wonderful stereo system for moderate sized rooms, or larger rooms if supplemented with D1500 or D2500 Digital subwoofers. In conjunction with a Meridian Surround Controller, it can be used in any sized theatre - from a main channel in a Meridian Digital Compact Theatre, to a surround speaker in a larger Meridian Digital Theatre. It can be wall mounted using an Omnimount 75 Series bracket. It can be used either vertically or horizontally mounted as a centre channel. If ordered as a centre, it is supplied with a plinth, which gives rigid support and tilts the centre channel towards the listener, whether sited above or below a television. Other two channel applications include its use as a Digital 2nd Zone solution, or as a high-end PC multimedia speaker - when connected to the digital output of a soundcard, the RS232 lead supplied allows control over all the functions of the speaker.

Notes on ProductMeridian DSP5000 Digital Active Loudspeaker Meridian has long led the market with their highly acclaimed DSP loudspeaker designs. These combine excellent acoustic and drive-unit technology, with multiple built-in power amps and unique performance-enhancing DSP and digital conversion systems. The Meridian DSP loudspeaker is the ultimate expression of the speaker builder’s art. Like its big brothers, the DSP5000 is a digital active loudspeaker of great power and finesse. The difference is one of scale; in small rooms you may prefer the 5000. In fact the 5000 contains software to make it easier to place in tight spaces; put it in the proper mode and it performs happily with its back against the wall, or free-standing well into the room. Product/DSP5000 Active Loudspeaker The self-contained system combines in each cabinet a 2.5-way speaker, three custom drivers, three amplifiers, two delta-sigma digital converters, digital crossovers and computers to give you full remote control over bass, treble tilt, time-correct balance, absolute phase, tweeter axis and input. Refined technology gives the DSP5000 uncompromised precise detail and stereo dimensionality unequalled for its price; advanced signal processing packs dynamics and bass into a size that defies imagination. The DSP5000 is a single-box DSP loudspeaker. This model is a front-facing format that can be effectively built into system cabinets – DSP functions are provided to correct the frequency response in a variety of locations. Acoustic system and format The DSP5000 is a powerful 2.5-way active acoustic reflex design. The bass system uses two 160mm long-throw composite bass drivers and the cabinet vents through a rear facing port. This configuration, along with the active and DSP correction, delivers a combination of smooth powerful bass and very low mid-range colouration. The tweeter is the Meridian 25mm aluminium-dome, silver-wire tweeter used in all the DSP loudspeakers. Electronic system Each speaker incorporates an electronic panel in the rear part of the cabinet. The speaker accepts digital signals and has two inputs. The input receiver uses a FIFO (First In First Out) memory buffer for the lowest possible jitter from almost any source. Widely acclaimed by audio reviewers, the DSP5000 is unchallenged by any other system of this size and offers excellent value. It is ideal as a stereo pair, or linked with others in a surround system. The crossovers, equalisation, location correction, protection and tone controls are all implemented in 100MHz Motorola Digital Signal Processors (DSP) inside each speaker. The DSP feeds carefully tailored individual signals to the bass, mid and tweeter DACs. DSP5000 uses three Meridian Class-A discrete 75W low-distortion power amplifiers – one to power each driver. The electronics are powered from a high-current toroidal transformer through a custom high-speed power supply. 2.5-way active loudspeaker with DSP crossover Self-contained audio system, each comprising three custom drivers, three amplifiers, two digital converters, digital crossovers and advanced sound-shaping DSP computers Remote controlled and requiring no unsightly speaker cables Listener control over features including bass, treble tilt, listening axis, volume, time-compensated balance and absolute phase Cabinet constructed from veneered MDF, braced and damped and available in black ash, cherry or rosewood finish Horizontal centre channel available Maximum output level up to 108dB spl Technical Specification Performance: Frequency response in-room within 3dB from 35Hz to over 20kHz.

Notes on ProductMeridian DSP5000C Centre-channel Loudspeaker Meridian has led the market with their highly acclaimed DSP loudspeaker designs. These combine excellent acoustic and drive-unit technology, with multiple built-in power amps and unique performance-enhancing DSP and digital conversion systems. The Meridian DSP loudspeaker is the ultimate expression of the speaker builder’s art. Product/DSP5000C Centre-channel Loudspeaker The centre channel supplies dialogue in movies, and sharpens the musical stage. It can also add tremendous energy and should not be dismissed lightly when assembling a surround system. The DSP5000C is a single-box DSP loudspeaker in a front-facing format that can be effectively built into system cabinets. The DSP5000C is heavily shielded for use near the largest television screens. Like every Meridian digital active speaker, it carries all necessary electronics on board, including three 75-watt amplifiers, two converters, digital crossovers and a complement of powerful computers. Using Digital Signal Processing (DSP), internal computers adjust bass, treble and absolute phase while remaining sonically transparent. The same DSP system also provides equalisation settings to allow optimum performance when installing a DSP5000C in one of five common room positions: free-standing, wall-bound, above or below a TV, or behind a projection screen. The DSP5000C uses linear-phase digital crossovers. With no phase shift, a digital crossover brings voices and instruments into sharp relief. The DSP5000C blends seamlessly with other Meridian equipment, but can also be adjusted, using its powerful DSP, to match any high quality stereo system. Although horizontally disposed, the DSP5000C is not only a centre speaker. If you prefer the horizontal or shelf-mounting format, it can be used in stereo pairs, or for any position in a surround system. Acoustic system and format The DSP5000C is a powerful 2.5-way active acoustic reflex design. The bass system uses two 160mm long-throw composite bass drivers.

Notes on ProductMeridian DSP5500 Digital Active Loudspeaker Meridian has long led the market with their highly acclaimed DSP loudspeaker designs. The current models have won a steady stream of awards. In fact the DSP6000 – which was introduced in 1990 – is the only loudspeaker to hold the coveted Stereophile Class A rating for eight successive years. The Meridian DSP loudspeakers uniquely combine excellent acoustic and drive-unit technology, with multiple built-in power amps, performance-enhancing DSP and digital conversion systems. Product/DSP5500 Active Loudspeaker The DSP5500 is a single-box DSP loudspeaker, designed to provide performance similar to the highly popular DSP6000. This new model is a front-facing format that can be effectively built into system cabinets – DSP functions are provided to correct the frequency response in a number of locations. A unique removable wood and steel side panel arrangement allows for easy colour changes or custom finishes. The side panels are bolted in place; in addition to providing magnetic shielding, the resulting solid, stiff cabinet provides massive acoustic damping, giving the speaker remarkable mid-range transparency. Acoustic system and format The DSP5500 is a powerful 3-way active acoustic reflex system. The bass system uses two 200mm long-throw composite bass drivers. The cabinet vents through a floor-level wide-area coupling slot; this configuration – along with the active and DSP correction – maintains smooth powerful bass in the room down to 30Hz with very low mid-range colouration. The mid-range is mounted in a separate enclosure and uses a custom 160mm polypropylene driver. The tweeter is the Meridian 25mm aluminium-dome, silver-wire tweeter used in all the DSP loudspeakers. Each of the four drive units has its own 75W power amplifier. The main cabinet is constructed from high-density MDF. A unique ‘sandwich’ construction method clamps sheet steel all over the cabinet sides between the main cabinet and the real wood veneer side panels. This technique results in a very inert cabinet and provides exceptional magnetic screening – allowing the DSP5500 to be placed immediately next to small or large TVs. The top of the cabinet has an attractive 4mm plate-glass top. Electronic system Each speaker incorporates an electronic panel in the rear part of the cabinet. The speaker accepts digital signals and there are two inputs. The input receiver uses a FIFO memory buffer for the lowest possible jitter from almost any source. The crossovers, equalisation, tuning for a number of locations including cabinet installation, protection and tone controls are all implemented in a 100MHz Motorola Digital Signal Processor (DSP) inside each speaker. The DSP feeds carefully tailored individual signals to the bass, mid and tweeter DACs. The DSP5500 uses four Meridian Class-A discrete 75W low-distortion power amplifiers to individually power the drivers. The electronics are powered by a high-current toroidal transformer through a custom high-speed power supply. Three-way active loudspeaker with DSP crossover Self-contained audio system, each comprising four custom drivers, four amplifiers, three digital converters, digital crossovers and advanced sound-shaping DSP computers Remote controlled and requiring no unsightly speaker cables Listener control over features including bass, treble tilt, listening axis, volume, time-compensated balance and absolute phase Laminated wood and steel cabinet construction for rigidity Magnetic shielding prevents disturbing TVs Horizontal centre channel available Maximum output level up to 112dB spl Technical Specification Performance: Frequency response in-room within 3dB from 30Hz to over 20kHz.

Notes on ProductMeridian DSP7000 Digital Active Loudspeaker Meridian’s latest speakers, the DSP7000s, are breathtaking in their ability to place musicians in precise locations in your room, with even subtle body movements clearly audible. The system also has the power to bring alive the most challenging motion picture sound track or rock band. The DSP7000 is a smaller derivative of our Stereophile Class A rated flagship, the DSP8000. Aspects like the unique cabinet construction allow the DSP7000 to handle the demanding dynamic resolution required by today's formats. Product/DSP7000 Active Loudspeaker DSP700 is shown in silver gloss lacquer with the mid-range grille removed DSP loudspeaker drivers Each DSP7000 loudspeaker uses two multiple high-efficiency long-throw custom bass drive units. The treble and mid-range drivers are mounted in a separate acoustic enclosure. The treble unit is a semi-horn-loaded composite dome design with a silver voice coil. The mid-range unit uses a custom 160mm polypropylene driver. Power amplifiers The speakers are driven by four independent high-power low-feedback power amplifiers. The combination of optimised magnetic design, careful star earthing, and very fast output devices gives the amplifiers extremely low noise, high detail, and fast bass. The whole electronic assembly is powered by a substantial toroidal transformer feeding high-quality audiophile-grade capacitors. Cabinet Each DSP7000 loudspeaker is built within a precision manufactured cabinet, which uses innovative design techniques to give exceptionally low coloration and exquisite mid-range transparency. The ported enclosure is fabricated from curved pressure-laminated panels, each using multiple layers of selected woods and metal to provide high stiffness and damping. Its narrow, tapered shape offers optimum dispersion across a wide listening area. The cabinet is constructed with extensive bracing. The front incorporates a window for the matrix display and an infrared remote control sensor. The cabinet stands on triangulated adjustable machined foot assemblies with provision for floor spikes or skids. Four-way DSP active loudspeaker Curved cabinet featuring advanced laminated damping technology Piano lacquer finish in a range of sumptuous colours Self-contained audio system, each speaker has four custom drivers, four amplifiers, three digital converters, digital crossovers and advanced sound-shaping DSP Technology Controlled by Meridian System Remote (supplied) Listener control over features including volume, bass, treble tilt, listening axis, time-compensated balance and absolute phase The ultimate expression of the art and science of compact loudspeaker design Technical Specification Performance: Frequency response in-room within 3dB from 30Hz to over 20kHz.

Notes on ProductMeridian DSP8000 Digital Active Loudspeaker Meridian’s latest flagship sets entirely new standards for clarity, dynamics, imaging and realism. DSP8000s are breathtaking in their ability to place musicians in precise locations in your room, with even subtle body movements clearly audible. The system also has the power to bring alive the most challenging motion picture sound track or rock band. The DSP8000 is designed to reproduce sounds at up to full natural level while providing all the resolution required by sources of up to 24bit and 192kHz. Such demanding dynamic resolution called for a new approach to cabinet construction and selection of advanced drive unit materials. Product/DSP8000 Active Loudspeaker DSP loudspeaker drivers Each DSP8000 loudspeaker uses six multiple high-efficiency long-throw custom bass drive units. The bass units are mounted symmetrically in pairs on the sides of the bass cabinet, cancelling vibration in order to minimise interference with the mid-range and treble units. The treble and mid-range drivers are mounted in a separate sealed head assembly. The treble unit is a semi-horn-loaded composite dome design with a silver voice coil. The mid-range unit incorporates a cone made from a uniquely light and stiff combination of polymers to give unparalleled transparency. Power amplifiers The speakers are driven by five independent high-power low-feedback power amplifiers mounted on a multi-finned extruded heatsink. The combination of optimised magnetic design, careful star earthing, and very fast output devices gives the amplifiers extremely low noise, high detail, and fast bass. The whole electronic assembly is supplied from two substantial toroidal transformers feeding high-quality audiophile-grade capacitors. Cabinet Each DSP8000 loudspeaker is built within a precision manufactured cabinet, which uses innovative design techniques to give exceptionally low coloration and exquisite mid-range transparency. The head assembly is a sealed enclosure fabricated from curved pressure-laminated panels, each using multiple layers of selected woods and metal to provide high stiffness and damping. Its narrow, tapered shape offers optimum dispersion across a wide listening area. It is supported on the bass enclosure by three machined feet.
