Here's a Stereophile article regarding these amazing speakers:

"Cambridge, England's Meridian Ltd. has been making digital active (or self-powered) loudspeakers since 1990. Regarded as the best among the very few companies to offer such a product, Meridian has taken the concept to a new level by introducing three DSP-series loudspeakers with 24-bit/96kHz capability: the DSP6000, DSP5500, and DSP5000---all bearing the 96/24 suffix to distinguish them from their lower-resolution predecessors. Meridian introduced two 96kHz-capable subwoofers, the DSW1500 and DSW2500, at the 1999 Consumer Electronics Show."

Here's a glowing review on the G68 from Audio Video Revolution:

"At its price, the Meridian G68 is one of the finest AV preamps money can buy – and money can buy you a preamp costing upwards of $20,000 or even $30,000 at the ultra-high price points in the home theater industry today. For music, this combo performs with effortless perfection and handles movies with equal grace. Regarding video quality, I can’t say enough. If you have a local retailer and can afford this level of performance, don’t miss the opportunity to audition the pair. An AVR Top 100 Award for the G68 and G98 are no-brainers, if I have any say (and I do)."

Here's an article from Sound & Vision detailing Meridian Room Correction:

"Unlike typical room correction techniques, which rely on mid-to-high frequency equalization, Meridian Room Correction controls room modes at low frequencies, where problems are most noticeable. The technique is said to be extremely effective for obtaining good results for a broad range of listening positions, without the undesirable effects that often accompany other techniques - such as listener position dependence, ringing, pre-echo and loss of headroom."
