Meridian DSP-5200 Active
speakers in gloss black. The speakers have built-in digital processing
192kHz, 24-bit D/A converters and built-in amplification. The are approximately 5 years old with very
very little use. The speaker finish has the general swirls of cleaning visible
and there is not marks, scratches or chips on the speakers. The come with the manual, and original box. The speakers are a 9 out of 10 rating.

The DSP5200 takes the
elegant appearance and design of Meridian's flagship DSP8000 and popular
DSP7000 and delivers it in a compact package just 36 inches tall. Indeed, many
of the features of the 5200 are derived from the larger systems in the line.
self-contained system combines a 2 1/2-way crossover design, three custom
drivers, three amplifiers, two multi-bit delta-sigma digital converters,
digital crossovers and computers to audio with full remote control over bass,
treble tilt, time-correct balance, absolute phase, tweeter axis and input.
Advanced DSP controls allow correction of the frequency response for a variety
enhanced basket design with sturdy clamp rings accompanies the drivers, which
are chosen specifically for their sound. The curved and tapered cabinet both
increases stiffness and is said to improve HF dispersion. Cabinet construction
is of 19mm thick multi-layer materials, with proprietary heavy poured resin,
and is inherently stiff. The dual bass drivers use 160mm long-throw composite designs
and the cabinet vents through a dual rear port. The tweeter is a 25mm
aluminum-dome, silver-wire design.
speaker incorporates an electronics panel in the rear part of the cabinet. The
speaker accepts digital signals and has two inputs, placed at the base of the
cabinet for ease of installation. The electronic design of the DSP5200 is
entirely new, and takes advantage of the latest advances in component design as
well as techniques and approaches employed on the DSP8000.
receiver uses a FIFO (First In First Out) memory buffer for the lowest possible
jitter from almost any source. At the heart of the 5200 is a DSP system based
around a 150MIPS processor, running brand new software. A built-in circuit
monitoring system handles both thermal and bass protection, without
compromising either sound or protection capability.
resolution double-precision processing and upsampling, coupled with the latest
192kHz, 24-bit DACs, ensure the digital signal path is second to none.
