Meridian G98 DVD Audio Transport. To be used with Meridian DSP system.
A high end DVD Audio transport utilising Meridian's DSP technology to allow for one of the best digital audio experiences.
Unlike other players that use a mechanical approach to try to lower jitter by minimising drive vibration, the G98 employs a triple buffering system to minimise jitter, maximizing HF transparency and sound stage imaging precision and stability. The result of this sophisticated effort is that the players deliver ultra-low jitter, with sound and picture quality second only to Meridian’s 800 Reference DVD/CD Player.
This G98 is in pristine condition and has had a brand new laser mechanism fitted.
