Designed without compromise, the DSP8000.2 cabinet features a unique construction with a dedicated bass enclosure and a separate head-assembly for the midrange and high-frequency drive units.
Utilising a multi-layer, multi-material construction technique, the DSP8000.2 pushes boundaries with the most inert cabinet Meridian has ever made. The narrow, tapered shape of the head-unit offers optimum dispersion across a wide listening area. In addition, its design emulates aspects of the human form, which psychoacoustics suggests provides a more realistic performance.
Psychoacoustics, the psychology behind how humans perceive sound, is applied throughout the design of the DSP8000.2, delivering authentically natural vocal reproduction and lifelike imaging. Deep, effortless and room-filling bass is produced without a hint of distortion by three pairs of horizontally opposed, eight-inch drivers within the bass enclosure.
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.
