Meridian, the British audio technology company, has announced the launch of the DSP8000 Performance Pack. The company says this new upgrade kit allows integrators to reconnect with previous customers and upsell them to a system that achieves a significant step-up in performance for their original DSP8000 loudspeakers.
The DSP8000 Performance Pack is the second product to emerge from Meridian’s Extreme Engineering Program, and according to Meridian, the option allows any existing DSP8000 loudspeaker to be upgraded to a higher specification that is said to deliver higher levels of detail, dynamics and fidelity.
“The upgrade was very simple and straightforward. We were playing music about an hour after first arriving, and the difference in performance was mind-blowing. Technically, the speakers now sound more open, with higher resolution across lows, mids and highs. Musically, everything became more engaging and there was just a lot more precision in the presentation. The upgrade made the listening experience more emotional and involving,” states Joakim Sand, sales manager at Audio 7.
“The Performance Pack is an invaluable tool to connect with existing customers. Meridian has always excelled in their approach to upgradeability. Having the option to offer our customers an upgrade is a great excuse to get in touch and present them the new products. It allows us to show our client the value and longevity of investment in Meridian.”
The upgrade pack can be used with all model versions: DSP8000SE, DSP8000.2, DSP8000 Anniversary Edition and DSP8000.
Summarizing the benefits of the DSP8000 Performance Pack, Meridian says it provides homeowners these benefits:
- Enhanced playback resolution of the finest details
- Pinpoint and stable imaging of sound in the playback space
- Even more natural reproduction of the recording venue ambience and the attack and decay of instruments
- Improvements to vocal transparency giving a “live” sounding performance
- Greater dynamics
