Default A wee bit of music for my ears, eh?

Excellent choices of music, I must agree!

The Meridian gear is indeed excellent. It's easily set up and tailored as well. I remember fighting with the first generation digital active speakers in 1990. We had some issues with the internal amplifier in one assembly. Come to think of it, I still prefer the basic geometric shape of them...

Digital control of the final audible product has come a long way indeed. I don't think many manufacturers have executed this better than Boothroyd and Stewart. Take, for example, the "balance" control: on a Meridian, this is far more than a mere realignment of the right and left channels- the timing of the two signals is changed!

As for my vote for the "best" all-round solid state gear? There are so many choices, aren't there! I still get all warm and fuzzy remembering the sound of Thresholds tickling my speakers...the Adagio for Strings sounded wonderful. In my system, driving big speakers required horsepower.

I reckon the top-end meridian set-up really takes the biscuit...what?
