The Meridian SE Roadshow hits Los AngelesApril 18, 2014 By Maureen Jenson
Honoring the 25th anniversary of the introduction of the world’s first digital loudspeaker, 2014 has seen Meridian launch and now make available to order a new Special Edition series of DSP Digital Active Loudspeakers, featuring a beryllium domed tweeter, new electronics and driver clamp rings.
As this is such a remarkable milestone, Meridian is hitting the road…literally and bringing the Special Edition series to the people. Technology Integrator caught up with the Meridian team at Access Networks facility in Encino, CA.
Said John Buchanan, Executive Vice President Consumer Products at Meridian, "What I love about the beautiful space that Access Networks has created here in Encino is that it accurately relates to how our client lives and is the perfect place to showcase Meridian products, from our in-wall speakers to floorstanding speakers to Sooloos music streaming.
"Our partnership with Access Networks is so easy, it's a pleasure to work with them and we truly appreciate the opportunity we have to work with this skilled, professional and all-round great team of people."
“We have a strong relationship with Meridian. The roadshows are for partners, VIPS, clients, the press…It’s about where Meridian is now, and where the company is going," added Access Networks CEO and Founder, Hagai Feiner.
"Meridian dealers are noticing a trend that when any components are on an Access Networks system there is very little trouble shooting and if there is a problem, it is resolved quickly. The great thing with having a company like Meridian as a partner, is that we see eye to eye. I can honestly say that when you team Meridian and Access Networks, your customer gets a bullet-proof system”
The Access Networks penthouse facility offers sweeping views of the San Fernando Valley and features a clean streamlined interior aesthetic; much the same as Meridian components themselves. It is easy for customers in this space to imagine how a Meridian system will look in their own homes. Of course though, it is all about the sound quality.
"With the Special Edition Loudspeakers, you have to hear them to believe them; the performance speaks for itself. Bob and his team have done an outstanding job, with the Special Edition loudspeakers it's all about how people hear sound, respond to sound and the impact of high-resolution audio," Said John Buchanan.
