Meridian Prime Headphone Amplifier

With a new chassis design instantly identifiable as Meridian DNA, Meridian Prime delivers lifelike performance from any headphone and is designed to appeal to audio enthusiasts who seek the highest possible performance from conventional analogue audio sources. Despite its diminutive size, Meridian Prime echoes the design elements of any other Meridian product, including a double skinned, bead blasted metal chassis found on Meridian's full size components. This ensures that noise is kept away from critical audio components for lifelike details that are critical for headphone listening. The Meridian Prime Headphone Amplifier can be powered by the wall- mounted supply provided, or by the similarly sized, and styled, Meridian Prime Power Supply for even higher audio quality. The use of an external power supply means that AC noise is kept well away from the pure analogue stages of the Headphone Amplifier. Virtually all the active audio components are at the rear of the unit, as close to
 the connectors as possible to minimise 
the audio path length, and are essentially remote-controlled from the front panel. This is even true of the volume potentiometer, a high-quality Alps-type mounted near the rear of the unit, which controls the level
 of all outputs. A special flexible shaft coupling is employed to avoid microphony, resulting from operation of the volume knob. An analogue output is also provided so the product can be connected to an active loudspeaker, or conventional amplifier and loudspeaker system for a high-performance simple system.

FeatureHandmade in the UK with the same precision and craftsmanship as every Meridian product. Meridian Prime provides three inputs, one dedicated and optimized to USB sources for computer audio, discrete pure analogue inputs on RCA for traditional sources, and a 3.5mm connection for portable devices such as a smart phone or tablet. ASP, or Analogue Spatial Processing, is an option for "outside the head" listening through headphones. 6-layer PC board for maximum signal isolation and enhanced performance Analogue Spatial Processing offers dual-mode loudspeaker-like listening on headphones - with bypass
