Meridian DSW


Meridian DSW DSP Subwoofer echoes the iconic shape of Meridian DSP Loudspeakers and is designed to provide deep bass in rooms where a compact loudspeaker is visually needed.

Featuring a downward firing woofer, this design tapers at the top reducing the visual impact on its surroundings. All of the connecting cables, SpeakerLink and Power, attach discretely at the bottom of the cabinet allowing for discrete installations.

Powerful Addition

The DSW provides deep and impactful bass that will perfectly play its part in a two-channel or complete surround-sound set-up made up of any of our Digital Active DSP Loudspeakers. It comes standard in piano black or white, and is a part of the Meridian Select range of bespoke color options.

DSP Loudspeakers

The traditional setup – amplifiers driving passive loudspeakers – is inefficient, limiting sound quality. Meridian loudspeakers contain a complete, matched audio system with efficient DSP crossovers, multiple DACs and driver-specific amplifiers, giving higher overall quality, less power use, and the performance of a traditional loudspeaker eight times the physical volume.

Speaker Link

Traditional audio systems often require large, expensive cables to maintain their performance. Meridian's SpeakerLink uses an “Ethernet style” cable that delivers pristine digital sound and control down a single cable between Meridian components. The result is simple, unobtrusive, and cost-effective cables that are easy to install.

Triple FIFO Buffering

Each sample of a digital recording must remain evenly spaced in time. Unfortunately, timing can vary, especially when reading discs. This is “jitter”, degrading music's sense of space and diminishing realism. Meridian's multiple “First In, First Out” buffering system minimises jitter, ensuring perfect timing and improved clarity. You enjoy a clearer feeling of the instruments and their interrelationship.

Meridian High Resolution

MHR was the first approved encryption method for transferring high definition digital audio between components. Previously, it had to be in the analogue domain, reducing quality. MHR allows secure movement of high resolution digital audio within a Meridian system, without compromise, improving quality by reducing cyclic repetition.

Meridian Apodising Filter

Filters are critical in digital audio. Commonly they introduce distortion and harshness because of "pre-ringing". Early digital recordings suffer from harshness too, due to primitive filters. After painstaking research, Meridian developed a special filter that avoids pre-ringing, so it can be steeper, cleaning up the effects of early filters. The result: a better, cleaner sound from recordings old and new.
