The Meridian G-08. One of the best sounding CD players of all time from the masters of digital, Meridian. Unit is in amazing condition and owned by a huge Meridian fan. Client has gone all Meridian digital now so CD player is up for sale.  

The G08 24-bit Upsampling CD Player takes Compact Disc playback to an entirely new level, with a heritage that includes the multiple award winning 588 and 800, and two dozen optical disc players from 1984 to the present day. The G08 is CD-optimised, and able to play virtually any Red Book CD, as well as CD-R and CDR/W. It also plays the CD layer of an SACD disc. At the heart of the G08 are fully-integrated electronics and a computer-style CD/DVD-ROM drive. Although it normally runs at standard CD speed, the drive is capable of spinning the disc much faster, allowing multiple high-speed re-reads to ensure accurate recovery of data from even the most difficult disc. This feature alone provides ten times the error correction of a conventional CD player. Once the digital data stream has been recovered from the disc, powerful on-board digital signal processing (DSP) with a capability of an impressive 150 MIPS (million instrcutions per second) up-samples the digital information from the 44.1 kHz, 16-bit signal of conventional CD to 24 bits, and to a sample rate of 176.4 kHz for digital to analogue conversion to drive the analogue outputs, and 88.2 kHz for the digital outputs. Upsampling enables filtering to take place far beyond the range of human hearing, as well as offering other, audible benefits, right across the audio band, for ultimate transparency from a CD source.
