• Meridian comes up with a $100,000 Anniversary Sound System

    October 5, 2011 | Posted by

    A limited edition of strictly 40 pieces (we think that Meridian may be hard pressed to sell any more – given the six figure price tag) ; the $100,000 sound system celebrates the company’s 40th anniversary.

    Meridian Anniversary Sound System

    The sound system which has been created by Bob Stuart and Allen Boothroyd features a special version of their 808 Signature Reference CD Player. Also included in the set are DSP8000 loudspeakers. Each component is given a unique, distinctive and never-to-be-repeated Ruby Red finish and contrasting driver bezels. All the units are built from hand-selected components and include numerous special individually-adjusted performance enhancements that make this stunning system sound even better.

    Each system also includes a hardbound system user guide with a unique introduction detailing Meridian’s history and loudspeaker design & philosophy, personally signed by Bob & Allen. Following installation, a senior Meridian engineer will be available to fine-tune the system in situ.

    The colour Allenchosen for the 40th Anniversary System is a special mix, to a tone subtly darker than the Wine Red RAL standard. It is colour-matched and keyed to a custom-dyed grille cloth. This colour will only be available for this edition. Customers who purchase this special system will be able to purchase additional loudspeakers in the same colour, for instance to complete a theatre system. The colour will remain exclusive to original owners of the 40th Anniversary Systems.
