Meridian Sound System
Named Number One by Automobile Magazine
Our partnership with Jaguar Land Rover has secured another prestigious honour, as we were recently awarded the accolade of ‘Best in Car Audio System’ by AUTOMOBILE Magazine, America’s best respected automotive magazine. In a round-up of eight high performance systems, judged by Jake Holmes of AUTOMOBILE Magazine and Sound and Vision editor Rob Sabin, our immersive and powerful solution came top of the class, with its reproduction of highly natural sound especially commended by Sabin.
“It takes just one song to become smitten with the Range Rover Sport’s Meridian sound system,” wrote Holmes. “At highway speeds, the Meridian system held up against road noise better than any other system, with clear and well defined bass still distinguishable at 75 mph… Meridian was the system that we wanted to listen to all day long.”
The Range Rover Sport is equipped with the 1700 watt Meridian Signature Reference System, offering peerless audio performance and premium quality. With the 23 speakers positioned strategically within the cabin, the Meridian system can create a 3D soundstage, enveloping all occupants with an unrivalled, immersive and authentic audio experience.
The design of the Meridian setup ensures that every passenger in the car enjoys the same phenomenal performance, including those in the back seats. Holmes commented that “the audio experience for back-seat passengers was among the best of any car tested, with a pleasant and accurate sound stage.” We design and specify the speakers which feature in a range of Jaguar and Land Rover models, so the positioning of each speaker in each model is carefully tailored to ensure it provides the optimal performance.
Sound and Vision editor Rob Sabin concluded that “I was just so impressed with how natural it sounded all the time with seemingly all kinds of music… We should all be so lucky to have a system in our home that sounds this good, never mind in a car”. Recently awarded the accolade of ‘Best in Car Audio System’ by AUTOMOBILE Magazine, it is a testament to the collaborative partnership between ourselves and Jaguar Land Rover, and the quality of British innovation and engineering.
