Sooloos requires a device on the network to act as “Core”. Media Source 600 cannot act as Core, so another device needs to be present on the network to carry out this function.

Check-boxes are available for “DHCP”, “Fixed Analogue Output Volume” and “Force 1x Digital Output Sampling Rate.”

All the settings can be accessed via the product’s webpage. Enter the IP address of the Media Source 600 into the browser of a computer connected to the Sooloos network and it should take you to the settings page.

This can be seen by running the program “Meridian Sooloos Configure” on a PC connected to the Sooloos network. It is also shown in the relevant section of the “Devices” area when using Touch PC or a Control 10/15. Other, third-party network scanning tools can be used too.

If the option is available, it is generally advisable to use balanced connections. The science behind balanced connections offers the potential for improved performance by achieving lower levels of noise on the signal. Even if the sonic difference between the two types of connection is not overly apparent during casual listening tests, it can be reassuring to know that “best-practice” has been observed.

The Speakerlink connection should be used. In addition to the potential for slightly better audio performance, Speakerlink carries all the relevant Meridian communications signals in a single convenient cable. The coaxial connection on the Media Source 600 is intended to be used when no Speakerlink option is available.

Unless the “receiver” product is extremely old, a digital connection should be used. All Meridian products introduced since 1993 which feature both analogue and digital inputs convert their analogue inputs to digital signals internally. The use of an analogue connection would add unnecessary conversion between the digital and analogue domains. Even with the use of high-quality circuitry, this superfluous conversion can only degrade sound-quality.

This will depend on the internal design of the “receiver” product. Overall performance of the two connection methods is affected by many aspects of the two respective audio paths through the system. If the receiver product converts its analogue inputs into the digital domain, then it is usually advisable to use a digital connection. This will bypass superfluous conversion between digital and analogue formats. If the receiver product converts its digital inputs to the analogue domain, this this process will have to be carried out extremely well to exceed the sound-quality offered by the analogue outputs on the Media Source 600. Ultimately, listening tests may be the best arbiter of performance.
