The expertly performing products combined with the complementary Design and Specification Service, technical support and training on offer, shows why integrators enjoy specifying and installing its hi-res products.

“We are delighted to be representing Meridian in Latin America and the Caribbean and look forward to working with the team to introduce innovative solutions to a new audience,” he continued. “We’ll be kickstarting this partnership off at CEDIA Expo in Denver, so look forward to talking about these hi-res audio products to integrators at the show.”
