Meridian’s F80 home entertainment system is quite possibly the best-sounding and looking transportable CD and DVD player, DAB and FM tuner system you’ll have heard.
It sounds so good because the Meridian F80 incorporates Meridian’s 30 year experience in audio design. Specifically, it hosts the same digital loudspeaker technology that Meridian build into their flagship models. And it looks so good because of Meridian’s collaboration with Ferrari – together they’ve produced a system with an incredible sense of style that will comfortably fit on a bookshelf, in your kitchen or on your bedside table.
At the heart of the unit is a superb FM/AM and DAB radio. F80 also plays CDs and DVD video discs and offers the flexibility of connecting an iPod with the optional dock, or other MP3 player through a 3.5mm line-input socket. The unit’s Digital Signal Processing technology removes the need for traditional, passive crossovers and enables you to adjust the the frequency response of the system for the room and the location it is in; sit your F80 in a bookshelf and you can set it to ensure there's no bass boom. Powerful amplifiers, packing 80 watts of power – connect to stereo drive units and subwoofer. The resultant sound is clear, rich and unlike anything in its class.
"The F80 is one of the few audio products i've had that actually made me feel a bit giddy. It seemed almost too good to be true - but it really was that good". Stereophile Magazine
"The weight and bass control are consistently impressive, and the midband and treble make voices and instruments natural and clean, and even deliver fine concert-hall atmosphere." Gramophone Magazine
"This thing sounds huge. Not just loud but big, even filling quite large rooms with sound that’s engagingly coherent and satisfyingly energetic… Capture the publics’ imagination? They’ve imprisoned mine, creating an F80 sized hole in my bank account along the way – without so much as a dissenting murmur from Louise." Hi-Fi+ Magazine
