The Meridian Sooloos Control 15


Embodies all the functions of a Meridian Sooloos system in a single unit –
storage, playback & control – and it’s MQA-ready. Simply add loudspeakers.

Like new in factory double boxes.

Storage:

The Control 15 will store the equivalent of up to about 1000 CD albums in the open-source FLAC (Free, Lossless Audio Compression) format, thanks to its internal 500GB hard drive. If
additional Meridian Sooloos products with hard-disk storage are available on the network, the Control 15 will share these resources for storage, and render audio from them.

A Compact Disc drive is included in the Control 15, allowing music to be loaded on to the system direct from CD.

Media can also be added via the Control PC and Control Mac applications from disc or via online downloads.

Playback:

The Control 15 features a brand-new audio output design which includes the very best of Meridian’s experience with digital sound. Digital signal processing provides the full range of digital audio features for which Meridian is renowned, such as up sampling for enhanced
audio performance and an ultra-low-jitter clocking system for superior stereo imaging and digital audio performance.

Connectivity:

Audio is output via Meridian’s SpeakerLink technology, which uses RJ45 “ethernet-style” cables to carry balanced digital audio and control signals between Meridian components and Meridian DSP Loudspeakers, allowing for extremely straightforward installation and interconnection, and maximum audio quality.

This also means that a complete Meridian Sooloos system can be created simply with a Control 15 and a pair of Meridian DSP Loudspeakers.

The Control 15 also provides an S/PDIF coaxial output for connection to third-party systems.
This port may also be used with legacy Meridian systems in conjunction with the rear panel

Control:

The Control 15 embodies Meridian’s award-winning, ultra-intuitive Sooloos software with touch-screen interface, allowing instant access to a Meridian Sooloos music collection in many different ways.

With a high-contrast, high-resolution (1280 x 1024 pixels) 17-inch LCD display, the Control 15 features a sensitive resistive touch panel that responds instantly to a fingertip.

The Control 15 integrates fully into an existing Meridian Sooloos system, and is able to control other zones, seamlessly access additional storage and be operated from other control devices.

The latest Meridian Sooloos software offers advanced music discovery, integrating Rhapsody®* and Internet Radio services; streamlined system configuration; zone playback synchronisation; third-party control, including Crestron Meridian Comms DIN connector
provided on integration; and dedicated Sooloos iPad and iPhone applications enabling wireless control.

MQA – Master Quality Authenticated:

Control 15 features Meridian Sooloos’ signature lossless audio storage, making it a perfect carrier for audio encoded with Meridian’s revolutionary MQA – Master Quality Authenticated – which delivers studio master quality audio to listeners wherever they are.

Construction:

Integrated heatsinks in the Control 15’s machined aluminum chassis eliminate fans, making it almost completely silent. As a result it is entirely appropriate for operation in the most demanding of listening rooms.

Networking:

Like all Meridian Sooloos components, the Control 15 connects to the network using standard TCP/IP Ethernet, using either the supplied Neutrik EtherCon connectors or any
CAT5/5e/6 cable with RJ45 connectors.

 

 Product highlights:
