DetailsMeridian G08.2 CD player Featuring a slot loading CD mechanism capable of spinning the CD disc very fast to enable multiple re-reads of the data, the Meridian G08.2 CD player can recover the audio stream with incredible accuracy. Powerful DSP circuitry then upsamples the 16 bit 44.1kHz audio data stream to 24 bit 176.4kHz quality, enabling the filtering to occur way above the limit of human hearing, giving the Meridian G08.2 CD player a superbly transparent and detailed sound quality. Both balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA stereo analogue outputs are available on the rear of Meridian G08.2 CD player for connection to your amplifier. Coaxial and optical digital outputs offer further connection options, whilst an RS232 control port and Meridian control connections give remote control features.
