Meridian G65 Surround Controller

Meridian Audio just announced the G65 Surround Controller, designed for use with Meridian HD621 HDMI Audio Processor, which offers unified control over time alignment, bass management and surround sound processing. The G65 builds on the achievements of Meridian’s flagship 800 Series, with entirely new circuitry developed specifically for the product.

The G65 is designed to drive Meridian DSP Loudspeakers as well as providing balanced analogue outputs for conventional systems. Unique Meridian technologies include Smart Source, which automatically selects the correct settings for optimum listening, whilst Meridian’s Apodising upsampling system improves audio quality and can correct problems in an original digital recording. Meridian Room Correction smooths out the low-frequency reverberation on a room to improve clarity and imaging for a more immersive experience.

G65 also includes new menu features to seamlessly control Enhanced Bass Alignment as well as Centre Elevation found in Meridian’s DSP Loudspeaker range. These unique DSP Loudspeaker technologies provide the most immersive film experience while maintaining a no-compromise position for audio quality.

Inspired by the flagship 861 processor, Meridian’s G65 features a card-based construction using 7-layer boards. This architecture makes it possible to build cards and handle specific audio tasks, rather than the large multifunction boards common in most audio equipment. This approach delivers performance improvements such as lower noise and crosstalk, providing immersive sound fields.

The position of every part on a board affects its neighbour – ultimately impacting sound and picture quality. Part of the ‘Meridian Sound’ results from the fact that co-founder Bob Stuart hand-tunes each card for maximum performance, and you can read his initials on every board he tunes.

Full installation configuration is achieved by running Meridian’s proprietary Windows-based MConfig application, connected to the G65 via a serial or USB link, or direct from the front panel. A comprehensive back-lit learning/programmable MSR+ remote is included.
