Product: Meridian DSP5200 Powered Digital Floorstanding Speakers; 96/24; Black Pair
Product SKU: 15451
Serial Number: D52-100029A/B
Cosmetic Description: 6/10 Good overall condition and appearance with some visible cosmetic wear including scratches on the right surface of one cabinet and the top surfaces. There is a spike issue on the bottom of one speaker- two of the spike threadings are bent inside one speaker base and will need to be repaired if the buyer needs to install spikes on that speaker, the base also has a small split around those two spikes. The rear plate of one speaker is slightly bowed out but does not affect performance. There are a few nicks and scuffs around the cabinet edges and chipping at the bottom edge of one otherwise. This item shows some wear consistent with its age but is still presentable and sounds wonderful.

"Incorporating active amplification and digital signal processing into a loudspeaker isn't a new idea, but it's a good one--active loudspeakers can overcome shortcomings in driver performance and room acoustics in a way that passive loudspeakers can't. The Meridian DSP5200 represents an extremely well engineered and well-thought-out implementation of DSP and active speaker technology. I found its sound quality to be exceptionally clean and accurate, with excellent dynamics and presence and a smooth, neutral, not-too-bright, not-too-bass-heavy tonal balance. Its relatively modest size and, for a high-end loudspeaker, price, add to its appeal. True, many audiophiles will always prefer using the power amps, speaker cables and conventional loudspeakers of their choice rather than any kind of active loudspeaker; for others, the Meridian DSP5200 may be the loudspeaker they've been waiting a long time for."
