With a new chassis design right away identifiable as Meridian DNA, Meridian Prime delivers lifelike performance from any headphone and is designed to appeal to audio enthusiasts who are searching for the best possible conceivable performance from conventional analogue audio sources.
Regardless of its diminutive size, Meridian Prime echoes the design elements of another Meridian product, including a double skinned, bead blasted metal chassis found on Meridian’s full size components. This ensures that noise is avoided vital audio components for lifelike main points which might be vital for headphone listening.
The Meridian Prime Headphone Amplifier will also be powered by the wall- mounted supply provided, or by the in a similar way sized, and styled, Meridian Prime Power Supply for even higher audio quality. Using an external power supply signifies that AC noise is kept well away from the pure analogue stages of the Headphone Amplifier.
Virtually the entire active audio components are on the rear of the unit, as with reference to the connectors as conceivable to minimise the audio path length, and are essentially remote-controlled from the front panel. That is even true of the quantity potentiometer, a solid Alps-type mounted near the rear of the unit, which controls the extent of all outputs. A special flexible shaft coupling is employed to keep away from microphony, due to operation of the quantity knob.
An analogue output could also be provided so the product will also be attached to an active loudspeaker, or conventional amplifier and loudspeaker system for a high-performance simple system.
Handmade in the United Kingdom with the similar precision and craftsmanship as each Meridian product.
