Meridian just released the Prime Power Supply, a special low-noise, highly regulated linear power supply designed to be the perfect partner to their Prime Headphone Amplifier. Its reference-quality, high-current design is based on the new linear power supplies developed for Meridian’s 800 Reference Series and specifically built for audio applications.
Built into an elegant compact metal case, designed by Meridian co-founder Allen Boothroyd, that echoes the acclaimed Meridian G Series, the Prime Power Supply has no visible screws and is double-skinned for lower noise.
The Meridian Prime Power Supply can be used to power a range of Meridian products including the Meridian Prime Headphone Amplifier, Audio Core 200, Meridian Director (Meridian Direct DAC in U.S.) and Media Source 200. The addition of Prime Power Supply to these products provides an enhancement in their performance, much like supercharging a car’s engine.
