Meridian DSP 8000SE
SPECIAL EDITION DSP8000 DIGITAL ACTIVE LOUDSPEAKER
The Special Edition series of Meridian loudspeakers represent the pinnacle of Meridian’s loudspeaker design and development programme and are the most advanced loudspeakers that Meridian has produced to date. The Meridian Special Edition 8000 is the largest and most powerful of this series.
Built by hand in the UK, the Meridian Special Edition DSP8000 is a Digital Active loudspeaker containing Digital Signal Processing (DSP) technology. This ingenious, yet elegant design means that the loudspeaker enclosure contains the entire system’s electronics including its amplification. In common with the other loudspeakers in the Special Edition series, a suite of innovative Meridian technologies are also provided.
Finished as standard in a piano lacquer black or white, the Special Edition Range is also available in any of the 270 Meridian Select colours. Quite simply, the Special Edition DSP Loudspeakers are the best sounding loudspeakers Meridian has ever created.
