Meridian Introduces M80 Compact Entertainment System

There are table radios and then there is the M80 from Meridian, which is arguably the highest end, portable -dare I say, boom box the world has ever seen. While my last comment may seem a bit harsh it isn't for the M80 sounds utterly fantastic and is a leap forward in terms of technology from its predecessor the F80.

Meridian Audio has announced the introduction of the new M80, a complete, compact entertainment system that shares all the technical features and sonic distinction of its predecessor, the F80. The curved arch of the M80 houses a loudspeaker system, finished in a range of British hand-stitched leathers - Obsidian Black, Chestnut, and Ivory.

The compact M80 includes a host of internal sources, including CD, DVD and FM/AM radio, as well a mix of analog and digital input connectivity, offering the opportunity to listen to a range of music sources, including iTunes via AirPort Express, personal computers or a Meridian Sooloos Digital Media System.

The i80 iPod Dock included with every M80 offers a way to both listen to - and charge - an iPod. The special i80 link also allows the choice of music from an iPod to be selected via the M80 front panel - or from across the room using the M80 remote control.

Containing a Meridian 2.1 DSP Loudspeaker System in its mineral-doped composite body, the M80 can fill a large room with sound; alternatively, thanks to its DSP capabilities, it can be enjoyed at low levels and at close range from a desk or tabletop.

The M80 is British designed and hand-assembled in Meridian's Cambridgeshire factory.
