Meridian Takes Their New Special Edition Active Loudspeakers on the Road

The 5200SE is the smallest of Meridian's Special Edition range of enhanced DSP Loudspeakers.

You have to be a real rock star to go on tour. That's just how special Meridian's Special Edition Active Loudspeakers are.

To mark 25 years of the first digital loudspeaker, the D600, Meridian recently announced the Special Edition series of DSP Digital Active Loudspeakers. The company has also been taking those speakers to various locations to show them off and give listeners a proper introduction.

The new lineup includes the Special Edition DSP8000, the DSP7200 and the DSP5200. Each model includes Meridian's typical amplifiers and line-level crossovers, as well as a semi-horn-loaded tweeter with a new beryllium dome, new analog electronics, Meridian's EBA (Enhanced Bass Alignment) technology, and new driver clamp rings.

The DSP8000 boasts 750 watts of amp power, with six 7.9-inch long-throw bass drivers, one 6.3-inch polypropylene (TPX) mid-driver in a separate enclosure, and one 1-inch Meridian piston in the short horn, beryllium dome with the silver voice-coil. In the middle of the line is the DSP7200, which has two 7.9-inch long-throw bass drivers, one 6.3-inch polypropylene mid-driver, and one 1-inch Meridian piston in a short horn, beryllium dome with a silver voice-coil. The smallest of the group is the DSP5200, with two 6.3-inch polypropylene bass drivers and one 1-inch Meridian piston in a short horn, beryllium dome with a silver voice-coil.

Recently, our editor Chris Boylan went to check out these speakers at an event in New York City and was "wowed by their musicality." Maybe you'll get your chance, too.

If you're interested in checking out the SE lineup, Meridian will have them at Sanctuary Music & Aesthetics in Chicago tonight (June 3), with appearances in Indiana, Michigan, Tennessee, the UK, and several others to follow. For a complete listing of events and locations, check out the Meridian website.

Although everyone is invited to attend, the SE line may not be something everyone can purchase. Meridian is starting the DSP5200 SE at $20,000 per pair, with the horizontal and/or vertical center channel costing an additional $10,000 each. The DSP7200 is $46,000 per pair, with the horizontal and/or vertical center channel priced at $23,000 each. Also sold in pairs, the DSP8000SE goes for $80,000, with the horizontal and/or vertical center channel costing an extra $40,000.

 Right in the middle of the line is the DSP7200, which boasts an in-room frequency response within 3dB from 30Hz to over 32kHz.

2020 Lincoln Aviator Preview

The 2020 Lincoln Aviator gives wing to Ford’s luxury-SUV ambitions, with sensational style and Lincoln’s first plug-in hybrid drivetrain.
The 2020 Lincoln Aviator gives strong evidence that Ford’s luxury bona fides don’t start and end with the full-size Navigator.
Revealed at the 2018 LA Auto Show, the 2020 Aviator leaps into the niche between the Navigator SUV and the Nautilus crossover, as it revives a nameplate Lincoln hasn’t touched since the 2006 model year.

Asus ZenBook 14 (UX433) Review

Asus has revamped the ZenBook line with a whole new design, including a lighter build, redesigned hinge, and a light-up numpad built right into the touch pad
Should I Buy The Asus ZenBook 14 UX433?
The ZenBook 14 is a very promising shakeup to the Asus laptop line. It’s smaller, lighter, and better looking than any of the previous models, without having to sacrifice either ports or powers. There aren't many laptops around that can offer you a 14in display in a body this compact while still giving you USB-A and HDMI ports, not to mention a Core i7 processor.
Unless you're an Excel addict you can probably safely ignore the glowing numpad - it's a fun gimmick, but most of us will probably forget it's even there, and without tactile feedback it's hardly a proper replacement for the keys. Still, this is a strong enough laptop elsewhere that it doesn't need that gimmick to get by, and there's plenty to recommend it otherwise.

2019 Mitsubishi Mirage Review

The 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage challenges the assumption that there are no bad new cars anymore.
The 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage is a subcompact car that prioritizes high fuel economy, a good factory warranty, and a low base price over comfort.
It’s offered in hatchback and G4 sedan bodies, and is available in base ES, SE, and GT trims. We’ve given the Mirage 3.3 out of 10, one of our lowest ratings for any new car.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Movie Review

Nth Time's a Charm

If you groaned at the thought of another "Spider-Man" movie, fear not because you weren't alone. How many times can one character be rebooted or reimagined before it becomes insufferable? Apparently we aren't there yet, because "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" is a welcome breath of fresh air.
Everyone's history with the movies about our favorite neighborhood webslinger differs. Sam Raimi's trilogy has its diehard fans (despite only producing one truly great film) and the Andrew Garfield-led "The Amazing Spider-Man" movies were cut short when they didn't meet expectations (the first one is good!). Last year, Jon Watts' "Spider-Man: Homecoming" found Tom Holland in the title role, providing a fun, well-rounded look at the character, which had been missing for a while.
