The Meridian G01 is a fully-integrated analogue control unit which includes a sensitive AM/FM RDS/RDBS tuner. It is an ideal complement for the G Series power amplifiers and is particularly suited to those who wish to maintain an analogue signal path at the very highest quality of reproduction.
Although Meridian is today best-known for its digital circuitry, it is a company built on analogue roots, and indeed, superb analogue circuit design and implementation are important parts of all Meridian products, whether their inputs and outputs are analogue or digital. The G01 rests, therefore, on over a quarter of a century of Meridianís experience in the design and manufacture of exquisite-sounding analogue hi-fi components and systems.
Including both a preamplifier and controller, the G01 stereo control unit provides no less than seven stereo analogue inputs plus an AM/FM tuner. The inputs are nominally designated Aux, CD, TV, Tape, Disc (turntable), DVD and VCR (though these designations can be changed). The disc input can be factory-configured for either moving coil or moving magnet cartridge operation: order the unit with the appropriate stereo input module.
A front-panel volume knob (press to mute) activates a specially-designed dual differentially-balanced volume control circuit. This ensures perfect stereo tracking and full frequency range performance at all volume levels.
