The Meridian Sooloos Digital Media System Just Got Better

Jeff Dorgay

The latest addition to Meridian’s Sooloos Digital Media System—which Robb Report included in its 2011 Best of the Best selections (www.robbreport.com/Best-of-the-Best-2011-Audio-Meridian-Sooloos-Digital-Media-System)—provides the system with a mass-storage, multi-zone solution.

The new Media Core 600 combines 4 terabytes of storage with a high-quality digital-to-analog processor and the ability to output to six distinct zones via analog, digital S/PDIF, or Meridian’s proprietary SpeakerLink ports. Users can control any or all of these zones with Meridian’s Control 15 touchscreen controller, but where adding a Control 15 is not convenient, users have the option to control music on any zone via a computer, tablet, or smartphone by simply syncing the device with their home network.

In addition to housing a sizable music library, the Media Core 600 features seamless integration with Rhapsody’s cloud-based digital music service (where available). The $12,000 Media Core 600 also supports all popular digital music file formats, as well as high-resolution music files, making it virtually obsolescence-proof.
