Er - I have one :oops: I gave it to the GF (the B&O that is), she loves it (again the B&O)



There's a dude who looks like Beethoven reflecting off of it. Cool.

Just remembered I used to have a Meridian amp from many moons ago. It was dark grey in colour and came in sections that plugged into the side of each other. It was probably about two inches high and each module was about 4 inches wide by 8/10 inches long. I remember instead of phonos it used big DIN plugs. Pretty sure the face plate of each module was hinged so you could flip it down, but you could also press it to activate that module.

Anyone remember something like that? T'interweb doesn't return much in the way of useful info for a change.

Meridian 101 system? Getting very sought after.

Meridian started out as Lecson (I think!) then came up with this system:

The Component system came after:

It was the MCA-1 by the looks of it. I bought it 2nd hand about 10 years back. Never really got on with it for some reason. Traded it in for a Yamaha surround amp and never looked back. Was worried for a while that I'd got rid of a really expensive system - based on how much that one went for, I did ok!
