Founded by Bob Stuart and Allen Boothroyd in England, Meridian Audio is one of the most respected high end audio companies of all time. Meridian is most famous for pioneering the first high end CD player in the early 1980s. They then went on to create unique form factor audio products, powered speakers, Ferrari-branded clock radios, headphones, digital to analog converters and more. Meridian was at the forefront of 4K video and OEMed many JVC projectors under the brand name Meridian-Faroudja in the mid-2000s.
Meridian has been part of a number of key acquisitions over they years including purchasing video processing company Faroudja (LINK) and music server company Sooloos.
Meridian was behind the development of many key technologies including MLP (Meridian Lossless Packing) which was the driving engine behind the failed audiophile format DVD-Audio.
Beyond traditional high end audio, today Meridian is the OEM manufacturer of premium car audio for Jaguar, Land Rover and McLaren.
