DSP5200.2 Digital Active Loudspeaker
Designed, engineered and built by hand in the UK at our factory in Cambridgeshire, the DSP5200.2 creates authentic, natural and lifelike sound. Meridian’s world-renowned DSP technology and on-board amplification replaces a traditional, lossy passive crossover.
Crafted to fit small to medium sized rooms (20-30m2), the DSP5200.2 has a small footprint and modest height. Meridian’s proprietary Enhanced Bass Alignment technology (EBA) guarantees sound is time-aligned across the full frequency range, producing a coherence unattainable in a passive loudspeaker.
The cabinet of the DSP5200.2 is formed from low resonance, multi-layer, cold-grown, birch plywood and is available in standard piano black or white finish and an array of custom paint finishes which, in combination with Meridian’s Design and Specification Service, means you can design your space in your style.
Meridian’s latest DSP code ensures all audio signals, including MQA Core streams, are rendered at 88.2/96kHz regardless of the incoming sampling rate, maximising the potential of the loudspeaker’s DSP engine.
Outstanding performance. Three powerful wide range 75W amplifiers deliver a maximum output level of 116dB at 1m.
Advanced, high-efficiency composite dome tweeter.
Listener controls including time-compensated balance, listening axis and Enhanced Bass alignment – enables considerable speaker placement flexibility.
On-board DSP provides thermal and dynamic bass protection – enables high level use for prolonged periods of time.
