The Control 15 embodies all three of the functions that define a Meridian Digital Media System – storage, playback & control – in a single unit.
The Control 15 stores the equivalent of up to about 1000 CD albums in Lossless 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 imported into the system direct from CD. Media can also be added via the Control PC and Control Mac applications.
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 upsampling for enhanced audio performance, and an ultra-low-jitter clocking system for superior stereo imaging and digital audio performance.
The Control 15 embodies Meridian’s award-winning, ultra-intuitive touch-screen interface, allowing instant access to a Meridian Sooloos music collection in many different ways. With a high-contrast, high-resolution 17-inch LCD display, the Control 15 features a sensitive resistive touch panel that responds instantly to a fingertip.
