The DSP3200 Digital Active Loudspeaker
These loudspeakers echo the lines of Meridian's flagship DSP8000 and are the most compact Meridian loudspeakers designed to date.

Meridian's Digital Signal Processing (DSP) technologies and Meridian SpeakerLink connectivity makes connecting the DSP3200 to the Audio Core 200 quick and easy. Featuring a wide-range driver that allows the DSP crossover frequency to be reportedly well outside the speech band, the DSP3200 delivers a sound that remains clear, open and spacious, even at high listening levels. In addition to a digital crossover system, the DSP3200's digital signal processing provides dynamic bass protection with accurate transients.

The DSP3200 is suited to a wide range of room positions - on or in furniture, on floor stands or on wall brackets and is offered with two high-gloss paint finishes; high-gloss white and high-gloss black.

The Audio Core 200 Stereo Audio Controller
For bringing together all audio sources, the Audio Core 200 offers preamplifier quality, coupled with powerful Meridian Resolution Enhancement technologies such as an Apodising filter and upsampling for the best sound quality.

A stereo width control optimizes the stereo stage. The Audio Core 200 connects easily to almost any audio source; it even includes PC audio replay via USB. There is a Meridian SpeakerLink input for single-wire connection to a Meridian Sooloos Digital Media System. Fully compatible with Meridian's i80 Dock for iPod, the Audio Core 200 will play iPod/iPhone via Meridian DSP Loudspeakers while it charges, and control what you hear via the front panel or remote handset. The Audio Core 200's front-panel controls feature smart buttons for more intuitive operation and an auto-dimming OLED display. Connecting to the DSP3200 Digital Active Loudspeakers via SpeakerLink - a single wire - the Audio Core 200 gives direct access to DSP features.
