DSP8000.2 Digital Active Loudspeakers

Every aspect of Meridian's DSP8000.2 design is in the service of reproducing music. The unique construction of a separate head provides convincingly natural voice reproduction, while the discrete bass cabinet provides effortless deep bass. Its cabinet material, “Meridium,” was carefully chosen to have no influence on its reproduced sound. Even its beautiful lacquer finish enhances its performance. The DSP8000.2, like a fine musical instrument, is designed for a lifetime of enjoyment.
