Meridian Ultra DAC premium
Meridian's DACs were usually assigned a number such as 606, 563 and 818. And now there is the Ultra DAC. Purely on appearance it is hard to see the differences with the 818 but soundwise it is immediately clear that this DAC deserves more than just another number.

HFA Audio Setup History 20 – Secondary Setup – March 2016 to May 2016 premium
After completing the wall construction work, my new setup lasted only 3 months… On the right is the new wall that I extended by closing the hallway, thereby creating a longer wall. This way I could set up the equipment sideways, creating more floor real estate in the process, which was my wish. Later I […]

HFA Audio Setup History 21 – Secondary Setup – May 2016 to August 2016 premium
Martin Logans, like any dipole speaker, need lots of space around them. The listening section of my secondary listening room is only 4 meters wide, but with careful positioning of the speakers I have been able to get excellent bass out of them with seemingly ruler-flat response, much better in that respect than in the […]

For the first time, there are a pair of active Meridian DSP speakers in my listening room, along with an 818v3 Reference Audio Core and a Media Core 200. This makes for some very interesting comparisons.

After completing the construction work it was time to reposition the Apogees The Duettas and associated equipment was moved into position and with anticipation I sat down on the listening sofa, only to be overwhelmed with bassy room modes. Of course I could have known. With the initial sofa placement smack in the middle of the room […]

HFA Audio Setup History 18 – Secondary Setup – Construction work Dec 2015 to February 2016 premium
After being unhappy with the placement of the listening sofa, some more construction work was in order… This is what the secondary setup looked like end 2015: a nice, cozy place to listen to music and watch TV. To make this setup possible I had already removed several walls. Still, I was unhappy with the […]

HFA Audio Setup History 10 – Bedroom Setup premium
Bedroom system – before the room was to be combined with the cinema room, computer room and hallway The bedroom double-functioned as 2nd TV room at the time. Pretty unneccesary really, but I still had the TV as a leftover from the previous house so I went and installed it in the tiny bedroom. Like […]
