I am the original owner. This unit works flawlessly. The remote and manuals are included. The remote has some oxidation on the bottom left corner and buttons.
The G68 is a highly specified and flexible Surround Controller, featuring many of Meridian’s key technologies plus a comprehensive host of input and output switching and connectivity.
Central to the G68 is a powerful DSP engine made up of five Motorola 56367 devices and one 53671, running at 150MHz and delivering 900 MIPS (million instructions per second). All processing is carried out at high sample rates and with up to 48-bit precision, far beyond human hearing. This DSP engine is also responsible for G68’s comprehensive bass management system which can support up to three separate subwoofers, and for managing the up to 60 filters created by Meridian’s Room Correction software.
G68 includes multiple analogue and digital audio inputs including: Meridian SmartLink for multichannel connection to one of Meridian’s advanced DVD players such as G96, or for connection to a Meridian HD621; USB audio input for direct connection to personal computers or computer-based media servers; Toslink optical digital inputs for connection to set-top boxes, etc; and configurable multichannel analogue inputs for connection to multi-channel music sources. All analogue inputs are processed at 24-bit, 96 kHz resolution.
G68 also provides video inputs and switching for up to three component video sources.
HDMI audio sources can be connected to G68 via Meridian’s HD621 HDMI Audio Processor and Meridian’s digital multichannel SmartLink.
Providing up to eight channels of output for Meridian’s DSP Loudspeakers via SpeakerLink, G68 can control any of Meridian’s most sophisticated multichannel systems. For customers with traditional power amplifiers and passive loudspeakers, G68 offers balanced analogue outputs for up to eight-channels on XLR connectors. The AM/FM RDS radio tuner features 24-bit, 96 kHz analogue to digital conversion, with digital signal processing providing an elegant FM stereo blend/width control which filters unwanted noise out of radio reception. The tuner also features DSP-based low pass filters for improved AM reception.
