every piece of audio equipment has its own, characteristic sound. But at
Meridian, our intention is to represent the original acoustic or studio
event as accurately as possible. The characteristic sound of Meridian,
therefore, is clear: it’s the real thing. We achieve this sound in many
ways, including careful choice of the right components, the right signal
processing, the shortest possible analogue chain, precision digital
design and the lowest jitter.
builds on the technology that went into Meridian’s flagship, AAA-rated
861 surround processor. It is a powerful, flexible surround controller
with an AM/FM tuner built-in, and represents the centrepiece of the G
Series range, with multiple variants available to suit a wide range of
applications. At the heart of the G68 is a powerful DSP engine
consisting of five Motorola 56367s running at 150MHz – delivering an
incredible 750MIPS (million instructions per second). Processing is
performed at high sample rates and with 48-bit precision throughout,
ensuring that all filtering, processing and other operations are carried
out far, far above the limits of human hearing. The G68 is thus a
perfect processor for the very latest in digital audio and video, such
as DVD-Audio and DVD-Video. For superior audio quality, incoming
analogue signals are converted to 24-bit, high-sample-rate digital data
via multibit Delta-Sigma converters as soon as they enter the processor,
and all digital signals are re-clocked to minimize jitter and maintain
total data integrity.
just one reason it sounds so good. All versions of the G68 include two
6-channel S/PDIF digital inputs (coax), five stereo Toslink optical
inputs, and six more stereo coax digital inputs. In addition, there’s a
6-channel analogue input, and five stereo analogue ins. All the inputs
are reconfigurable for an incredible degree of flexibility, and analogue
inputs are converted to digital at high resolution – 24-bit, 96kHz.
The G68 is
not only an audio processor – the video versions make it a superb video
switcher too, with broadcast-quality switching and signal handling for
the highest quality picture you’ve ever seen. There are four S-video
inputs and two outputs; four composite inputs and two outputs; and three
component inputs with one output.
combines controller and surround processor functions, meeting the latest
THX Ultra 2 specifications and including MPEG, DTS, Dolby, Trifield and
Ambisonic decoding, to name just a few. The decoders consist exclusively
of our own code, giving them superior integration with the Meridian
design philosophy, as well as superior performance.
‘Smart Source’ feature continually monitors the digital inputs and
automatically loads the correct decoding software for the format,
speaker layout and encoding of the incoming signal. This capability is
enhanced by MHR SmartLink, which provides a digital link between a
Meridian optical disc player and processor, carrying explicit
information about the nature of the data stream as well as encrypted
high-resolution digital signals from DVD-Audio – the first system of its
kind to be approved.
all other manufacturers oblige you to go through a D/A-A/D chain, losing
quality in the process. You can also store separate user parameters for
each source (such as DVD) depending on whether the incoming signal is
stereo or surround, so that any source material is played with the
decode of your choice.
includes Meridian Room Correction software, accessed via the computer
setup program used to configure the unit via the serial port. This
unique feature automatically measures room resonances using a simple
microphone, employing powerful DSP technology to build up to 60
high-quality digital filters that limit the reverberation time at
resonant frequencies to a value similar to the overall reverberation
time of the room.
can be examined graphically and numerically, and edited if required. The
result is that ‘muddiness’ in the sound is removed, while stereo and
surround imaging are dramatically improved.
with this is a powerful bass management system that can handle up to
three subwoofers. Multi-zone/recording features include stereo digital
and analogue outputs providing independent sources to two additional
zones (video versions add two sets of S-video and composite video, with
auto-switching and conversion between S and composite).
provides AM (LF/MF) and FM (VHF stereo Band II) reception and RDS, and
is fitted with its own 24-bit, 96kHz A/D stage. Digital signal
processing provides a sophisticated FM stereo blend/width control which
allows the user to minimise noise on a received signal. There is also a
DSP-based lowpass filter and whistle filter for improved AM reception.
versions of the G68 are available. The G68D version does not include
video I/O, but provides 10 configurable digital and two analogue outputs,
plus a multizone/tape audio capability. The G68ADV version includes 10
channels of digital out with MHR along with 8 channels of analogue
output. G68J omits the tuner and zone features.
video front, there are two S-Video outs, four S-Video ins, two composite
outs and four in, plus component out and three component inputs. The
included multizone/tape feature adds composite and S-Video capability.
The G68AXV replaces the audio outputs described above with six
unbalanced and four balanced analogue outputs, while the G68XXV instead
provides eight balanced analogue outputs on XLR connectors.
The G68 can
be configured with a powerful Windows graphical set-up application (supplied),
which allows access to all the unit’s functions and configuration.
However, the G68 can also be configured from the front panel, thanks to
the comprehensive ‘soft-key’ based user interface which is common to all
the G Series components.
Five of the
seven keys take on functionality intelligently according to context,
with their legends displayed above the buttons in the front-panel
display. As a result, ‘wizards’ can be used to lead you through the
configuration procedure, allowing a powerful degree of customization
without having to hook up a computer.
keys take you back to the top level of the interface (‘Home’), and
display different options available at a given level (‘More’). The
firmware can be updated via the serial port, and it is possible for the
unit’s hardware to be upgraded by a Meridian service centre. This
sophisticated, powerful product is difficult to fully describe on paper
– contact your Meridian dealer for a demonstration of the G68 and other
G Series components, along with Meridian DSP Loudspeakers, which form an
ideal complement to them.
G68 Digital Surround Controller is an ideal complement to the G98 DVD
Transport, and provides the basis of a stunning Meridian Digital Theatre
system. Shown here connected to Meridian’s DSP8000 speakers for front
left and right; a pair of DSP420 in-walls for surrounds and DSP5500HC
for the centre front.
