Forty years ago, Bob Stuart and Allen Boothroyd worked together for the very first time and began to design their first products: the distinctive Lecson AC1 control unit and AP1 power amplifier, which went on sale the following year, in 1972.
These ground-breaking products won Bob and Allen their first British Design Council Award in 1974, and remain on permanent display in the New York Museum of Modern Art.
To celebrate the Ruby Anniversary of Allen and Bob’s creative partnership, Meridian is releasing a special limited 40th Anniversary Edition of Meridian’s most advanced audio replay system, consisting of a special version of the 808 CD and Meridian Sooloos Player with a pair of DSP8000 Digital Active Loudspeakers.
For this edition, each component is given a unique, distinctive and never-to-be-repeated Ruby Red finish and contrasting driver bezels. All the units are built from hand-selected components and include numerous special individually-adjusted performance enhancements that make this stunning system sound even better.
The system is unique in other ways too. Only 40 systems in total will be available. Each includes a hardbound system user guide with a unique introduction detailing Meridian’s history and loudspeaker design & philosophy, personally signed by Bob & Allen. Following installation, a senior Meridian engineer will be available to fine-tune the system in situ.
Only on demonstration for a limited period, so come along for a once in a lifetime listen to this stunning system.
