Meridian designs, engineers and manufactures state-of-the-art audio and video home entertainment systems. Bob Stuart and Allen Boothroyd founded Meridian in 1977 based on their beliefs in good audio engineering, good acoustical engineering, and the value of psychoacoustics – the understanding of how we perceive sound and our responses to it. Following the introduction of the Compact Disc in 1984, Meridian produced the world’s first audiophile-quality Compact Disc player, the MCD (the later, more advanced MCD Pro is shown here). Meridian went on to release the world’s first digital surround processor, and was ideally placed to take advantage of the explosion of the home theatre market.
