Meridian G95 DVD A/V Receiver

 

There is a link in the public mind between scale and quality, a notion that, if you want something better, you also want something bigger. After all, top-of-the-line surround receivers are expected to have more powerful amplifiers and more features....

The Meridian G95 is the best implementation of Class D amplification circuitry I've yet experienced in a receiver. Even if you can't afford its towering four-figure price, that's a fact worth noting. It means that the green DVD-receiver has come of age...

Meridian G95 review

 

Meridian delivers its own one-size-fits-all solution

Fuss-free all-in-one solution ; Looks the business ; Built to last ; A good all-rounder

CD quality not as forthright as standalone samples ; Set-up is necessarily complex ; SACD support would make it truly universal

Linn did it a while back, Arcam just did it, and now Meridian is doingit too. It's the single box that offers CD and DVD playback, FM and/or DAB tuning, multichannel processing and amplification. And it does all of them well...

Fuss-free all-in-one solution, Looks the business, Built to last, A good all-rounder

CD quality not as forthright as standalone samples, Set-up is necessarily complex, SACD support would make it truly universal

A beautifully executed example of the all-in-one solution, with the sound from audio discs the only slight weakness

One box to rule them all? That's the G95's plan ' it offers fabulous DVD and CD playback, bags of power and great style. But it also costs nigh-on four grandâ?¦

Brilliant performance. Stylish, compact and beautifully finished. Easy to use, with exceptional remote handset. Oozes 'proper' hi-fi credibility

Lacks onboard HDMI switching. No provision for iPod dock. It ain't cheap

Pricey, but near-perfect. Great to look at, great to live with and utterly convincing in every performance regard. If you can afford one, buy one…

A sterling effort, and an object of some desire; a simple, low-compromise solution sure to appeal to many well-heeled buyers

Excellent picture and sound quality; styling and build impress; easy to use; compact

You can buy more flexible kit for this cash; not without rivals, most of which are cheaper
