Meridian Audio Ltd., has introduced the latest addition to its popular
G Series line of players, processors and amplifiers: the G61 Digital
Surround Processor. The G61 builds on the technology that went into
Meridian’s flagship 861 surround processor, and is a further
development of the G68. It is a surround controller in a compact case
matching the G Series players, with a retail price-tag of $5,495 US.
At the heart of the G61 is a DSP engine delivering 500MIPS (million
instructions per second). Processing is performed at high sample rates
and with 48-bit precision throughout. For high audio quality, incoming
analog signals are converted to 24-bit, high-sample-rate digital data
via multibit Delta-Sigma converters as soon as they enter the
processor, and all digital signals are reclocked to minimize jitter and
maintain total data integrity.
