502 Analogue Pre-Amp

Price $ POA

Notes on ProductMeridian 502 Analogue Controller Meridian has established a strong reputation for preamps. The Meridian 502 is by far the highest specification and best sounding preamp from this distinguished high-end company. The 502 has been designed as a reference quality partner to the 557 and 505 Power Amplifiers, which also feature balanced operation and dual-mono construction. Product/502 This preamp is ready to receive balanced inputs from Meridian's 588 CD Player or 566 D-A Converter and when used with 557, 505 or a Meridian Active Loudspeaker, it completes a fully balanced analogue system. Balanced operation has always been used in professional audio because it can bring very substantial improvements in dynamic range by reducing inadvertent system noise from cabling or ground-loops. In a music system, balanced operation guarantees that the very best sonics are obtained from a combination of components. The 502 brings the very best sonic and musical results to an all-analogue hi-fi. Seven sources can be controlled - four connected as unbalanced on phono, the other three provide fully balanced operation with XLR inputs. 502 provides balanced (XLR) and unbalanced outputs so it can be used with either balanced or single-ended power amplifiers or active speakers. A balanced tape output is also provided to allow sophisticated connection for 'Pro' recorders and processors or balanced operation in a two-room setup. 502 is constructed in a dual-mono format; there are separate isolated printed circuits for the left and right channels. Each channel has its own high-performance power supply which employs linear techniques, massive storage with audiophile-grade capacitors and multiple ultra-low-noise linear active regulation. No expense has been spared in the construction - the 502 uses very high quality components including high-grade gold-plated connectors, Nichicon and polypropylene audio-grade capacitors, ultra-linear amplifier stages, four-layer PCB construction and a low-flux toroidal transformer. For vinyl lovers, two ultra-high-end mono phono modules can be fitted as an option (one for each channel). Preamps that integrate analogue audio systems need to have a wide range of operating levels and gains. The 502 has enormous overload capacity and will accept and deliver over 4V rms single-ended (8V rms balanced). The gain setting allows a ±12dB variation; this gain setting is user-adjustable for each input and automatically remembered by the preamp. Like all the Meridian 500 Series, 502 has full remote capability and it can control a Meridian system when used with the MSR system remote. The on-board controller also has RS232 access for sophisticated system integration and computer control. Completes a fully balanced analogue system when used with 500 Series amps or Meridian Active Loudspeakers Constructed in dual-mono to match the 557 power amp Two tape outputs User adjustable sensitivity Phono option with MC or MM plug-in modules for each channel Large low-field ultra-linear power supply Technical Specification Distortion: Less than 0.01% input to output. Signal/Noise: Better than –96dB CCIR (1V output, normal input) Less than –70dB for MM input and –60dB for MC. MM option: Sensitivity adjustable 0.5–17mV for 5cm/s @1kHz. Overload point 47mV @ 1kHz. Cartridge load 47k ohms + 100pF. MC option: Sensitivity adjustable 38–1200µV for 5cm/s @1kHz. Cartridge load 220 ohms + 10nF. Inputs: 4 unbalanced on phono, 27–840mV rms (impedance 20k ohms). 3 balanced on XLR, 27–840mV rms (impedance 20k ohms). Outputs: 1 unbalanced on phono, 1.4–3V rms (impedance 47 ohms). 1 balanced output on XLR, 1.4–3V rms (impedance 47 ohms). Tape outputs: Two unbalanced 1.5V rms (impedance 47 ohms). Construction: Two-channel dual-mono construction. High-grade components used throughout. Phono option with new moving-coil or magnetic plug-in modules for each channel. Large low-field ultra-linear power supply. Black textured enamel and glass finish. Dimensions: 88mm (3.46in) H, 321 (12.64) W, 332 (13.07) D. Weight 5kg (10lbs). Controls: Front panel controls for Source, Copy, Mute, Display, Volume up/down, Off. Volume control: 99 steps of 1dB with balanced mode.

G01 2 channel Analogue Pre-Amp AM/FM Tuner 



manufacturer Meridian 
Price $ POA 
Category Preamplifiers 
IMAGE 
Notes on ProductMeridian’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. The Meridian G01 is a fully-integrated analogue control unit which includes a sensitive AM/FM RDS/RDBS tuner. It is an ideal complement for the G Series power amplifiers and is particularly suited to those who wish to maintain an 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. The G01 rests, therefore, on over a quarter of a century of Meridian’s experience in the design and manufacture of exquisite-sounding analogue hi-fi components and systems.Including both a preamplifier and controller, the G01 stereo control unit provides no less than seven stereo analogue inputs plus an AM/FM tuner. The inputs are nominally designated Aux, CD, TV, Tape, Disc (turntable), DVD and VCR (though these designations can be changed). The disc input can be factory-configured for either moving coil or moving magnet cartridge operation: order the unit with the appropriate stereo input module.A front-panel volume knob (press to mute) activates a specially-designed dual differentially-balanced volume control circuit. This ensures perfect stereo tracking and full frequency range performance at all volume levels.

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.
