Meridian is widely recognised as providing
the benchmark for surround sound quality and over the last 25 years have
collected a host of awards for high performance systems that offer
unparalleled flexibility and ease of installation. While much of the

One such product is the Meridian 562V, a
fascinating multimedia controller that provides installers with a unique
