Support for 176.4 kHz and 192 kHz sample rates has been added to Meridian Sooloos systems to allow the import and playback of those higher resolution media. Customers who already own music recorded and stored at these higher sample rates will be able to use the 'Import Folders' and 'Import Files' features of Control PC and Control Mac to add the content to their systems. To help integrate this higher resolution content with Sooloos' search and discovery features, metadata and cover art will (where available) be brought in with the media being imported and/or downloaded from the Sooloos metadata cloud in the same way as with other imports.

All media on the Meridian Sooloos system is stored at its full sample rate. Depending on how you listen in any given zone, the Meridian Sooloos system may downsample higher resolution media to a rate that is compatible with the Sooloos endpoint you are listening to. When higher sample rate media does require to be downsampled, high performance algorithms, including Meridian's Apodising filter, are used to ensure performance.
