Meridian 208 CD-player with Pre-Amplifier and Bothroyd Stuart Remote


This flagship CD-player/preamplifier from Meridian was priced at £1490 in 1990 and was worth every single penny, as they said in the reviews. It established a new CD sound quality benchmark for any commercially available CD-player at the time. The player is fitted with one of the best Phillips CDM1 MK2 transport. The digital decoding uses two DAC3/B Bitstream DACs in differential mode operation for improved linearity  and noise. The preamplifier part of the unit is remoteable, the Boothroyd Stuart Meridian remote comes with the unit. Add only a power amplifier with speakers or just a pair of active speakers, and you have a high quality system.
