I'm selling a pair of Meridian DSP6000 speakers. These were upgraded by Meridian to 96kHz/24-bit status. They are currently running the latest firmware (version 5.20). If you haven't heard these speakers, you don't know what you're missing. You will not get better sound out of DSP5200 or DSP5500 speakers.
These Meridians have a tight, fast, deep bass. That, along with a design concept similar to a WATT/Puppy, allows them to image beautifully. These speakers excel at dynamics, and have the typically excellent rhythm and pace of the best British gear. When you consider the fact that all you need to make these sing is a source with a coaxial digital output... well, you're reading this so you know all about the benefits of Meridian digital speakers.
This pair is in good condition, especially for piano black speakers. (There are some slight swirls in the finish here and there.) I've rated them a 7/10 due to their age and the normal wear that accumulates over time; however, there are no scratches, dings, or damaged areas.
I'm including the remote, M5 and S5 comms cables, coaxial digital cables, spikes, and power cords (everything but the manual and original boxes). SHIPPING TO THE CONTINENTAL US IS INCLUDED AT THIS PRICE. Otherwise, shipping is to be arranged by the buyer at the buyer's expense. I will transport the speakers to a shipping store, facility, etc. to ensure proper packing.
Here's the technical stuff:
Performance: Frequency response in-room within 3dB from 25Hz to over
Maximum output >114dB spl @ 1m on music material
Noise less than 15dB spl.
Overall distortion typically Inputs: Two digital inputs to SPDIF standard; 32kHz96kHz sampling
rates at up to 24 bit; MHR support. (A future software update
will enable support for 192kHz.)
