Upgraded to the SE version in 2014 at the cost of $12,500 by an authorized Meridian dealer.

Great condition with only the slightest signs of use.  Fully tested and working absolutely perfect.  

Comes with the original boxes for safe shipping. 

From Meridian:

The SE suffix indicates a number of changes to the DSP7200 that preceded it, not the least of which is a beryllium dome on the tweeter in place of an aluminium one. Beryllium is desirable because of its excellent stiffness-to-mass ratio, combined with an uncanny degree of self damping. The only drawbacks are cost and fragility. This model also has new DACs and amplifiers onboard, and even the driver baskets are new. These parts are available as an upgrade to existing DSP7200 speakers, but what isn’t an option are the clamp rings incorporated to increase the rigidity of drive unit fixing. This can’t be applied to earlier loudspeakers because the clamp rings requires a different shape of driver opening.

The biggest change that SE ushers in is something called the EBA (Extended Bass Alignment) firmware algorithm developed by Richard Hollinshead, the director of engineering at Meridian. EBA is essentially a means of time-aligning the output of the bass driver with the other drivers in the speaker. It introduces a 27 millisecond delay to the upper bass, midrange, and treble frequencies, which means the signal gets to the the lower bass 27ms before the other drivers. Richard did this because in loudspeakers (as opposed to acoustic instruments), bass notes arrive after higher notes because of the relative size of the drivers. It’s a state of affairs that some try to ameliorate by placing treble drivers further back on the cabinet, either by angling the baffle or putting a step in it. However, to replicate Meridian’s EBA physically, the tweeter would need to be several metres behind the bass units. This isn’t practical, so Meridian has created DSP filters that delay the signal sent to the upper bass, mid, and treble drivers, so the wave front that arrives at a listeners ears is time-coherent across the frequency range.

WHO WE ARE 

SkyFi Audio is a small startup business specializing in the purchase, reconditioning, and reselling of select high-end audio equipment.  We only buy equipment the we admire and are passionate about. No mid-fi, no gimmicks, no junk. 

Each piece of equipment is cosmetically restored and fully tested in our well-equipped lab by an engineer with 30+ years of experience in the HiFi world. If it does not meet or exceed the original manufactures specifications, it will not be sold.  We are very selective about the equipment we purchase, focusing on mostly analog, high-build quality, American, and European built units.

Through our sister company, which is an authorized dealer for McIntosh, Audio Research, Sonus Faber, ClearAudio, Pro-Ject Audio Systems, and Sony ES, we have access to OEM parts, service, and support.  If you are local and looking for new equipment from the above-mentioned manufacturers, please drop us a line as we can arrange both sales and professional installation in the tri-state area.

PURCHASING GUIDELINES

We do not accept or review any offers that do not go through the official Audiogon system. We have too many items for sale and it’s nearly impossible to keep track of offers outside of the official system. Please don’t message, email, or text any offers. 

If you do not see a “Make an Offer” button, it means we are not considering any offers on that item.   

PAYMENTS

We prefer working through PayPal which allows you to use a credit card or bank transfer. We do not charge extra for any payment fees if you purchase the item at the asking price.  You can also send us a personal check (which will need to clear before shipping), certified check, money order, or wire transfer. International clients without access to PayPal should use a bank wire transfer. 

If you are picking up an item we do not accept PayPal.  You must pay in person with cash, certified or bank check, or wire transfer.  If you make a PayPal payment and are picking up the item, it will be returned. 

TRADE IN POLICY 

We accept trade-ins of equal or lesser value under certain conditions.  Simply ask and let us know the exact model, condition, and the accessories that are included (such as the original box, remote, cables, manual, etc.).  We will only consider high-end equipment from mainstream manufacturers such as McIntosh, Mark Levinson, Audio Research, Krell, etc. and will typically pass on displays, projectors, receivers, dated surround processors, and mid-fi equipment of any type.  We will offer a fair value for your equipment, but keep in mind we are running a business and will need to be able to resell the equipment at a profit after investing a great deal of time and resources in testing, certifying, repairing, cleaning, and packaging the incoming equipment.  If you are looking for top dollar we suggest attempting to sell it directly to an end user on your own.

SELL US YOUR GEAR (Working or Broken)

We will also purchase your used or broken gear and arrange pickup if you are in our local market. Just drop us a note for a quote but be sure to include the condition and what is included. 

HOW TO VISIT US                                                                                                        

We are currently operating from a residence in Ridgewood, NJ.  You are welcome to make an appointment if there is a piece of equipment you would like to see in operation before or after purchase.  We have a well-equipped, dedicated listening room with tons of equipment of all makes and models.  We are not a store, so please don’t make an appointment if you are just curious as to how a speaker or piece of equipment sounds.  In essence, no tire kickers please.

If you are in NYC and cannot make it out to Ridgewood, we can arrange pickup in Union Square (14th Street) after the purchase.   You can call or text 201.879.0000 with any questions or to schedule an appointment.  We can also arrange to install, calibrate, and tune the gear in your listening room if you are local to the area.  This is super useful when purchasing large speakers or heavy amplifiers.  It is also great for ensuring your new turntable is setup correctly in its final resting place.  

Thanks for looking and please click here if you would like to receive a list of the equipment we receive from time to time.  We promise not to bombard you with junk email.
