After the huge success of the Explorer DAC, Meridian have turned their attention to the headphone amplifier; with the release of the Prime. With so many of us turning to quality headphones, it makes sense to feed them with a dedicated amplifier.
Prime has Meridian DNA running right the way through: with the high quality sound designed by Bob Stuart and chassis design by Allen Boothroyd. Its looks are recognisably Meridian, so fitting into any of their systems or if it’s your first time, adding a new piece of iconic hi-fi design and engineering into your space.
With three inputs: USB asynchronous input for computer audio, 2 x RCA analogue, and 3.5mm to enable phones and tablets to be connected.
Based on years of Bob Stuart’s research in the science of psychoacoustics, the Meridian Prime Headphone Amplifier also features new, proprietary Meridian audio processing technology called ‘ASP’, or Analogue Spatial Processing, to provide “outside the head” listening through headphones to make the experience more like listening to a pair of loudspeakers in the room.
It can also be improved upon with the addition of Prime Power Supply, for those that want the ultimate headphone experience.
Prime Headphone Amplifier – £1,200
Prime Power Suppler – £800
