New additions include a plugin that enables third-party NAS integration, a range of significant performance and hardware enhancements and extended control options to embrace re-designed iPhone and iPad applications and TouchPC control alongside third-party integration via Crestron and Control4.

“Meridian Sooloos retains its reputation for class leading performance but, with these improvements, gives greater freedom during installation and delivers a fantastic experience for clients,” says Barry Sheldrick, Meridian’s Director of Sales. “It can now be integrated with any existing audio system and supporting NAS devices, and offers a huge range of control options for greater installation flexibility. The unrivalled user interface is efficient, lightning fast and a dream to use. At an accessible £500 price point per zone and with its small form factor, Meridian Sooloos is a terrific value for money CI choice.”
Fully flexible and scalable in terms of zones and systems, Meridian Sooloos is a music cataloguing, metadata system, comprising control, network, hard drive storage, a core operating system and audio source / end point. Meridian Sooloos can now be integrated using Meridian Core storage options (with integrated end point) or a supported NAS device, through a special QNAP plugin, giving the installer the freedom to specify their preferred storage product.
Free Meridian Sooloos control applications are available for iPhone, iPad and any PC or MAC through the company’s flagship TouchPC application which optimises access to the Sooloos interface for touch screen PCs with a 1920 x 1080 screen size. Meridian Sooloos can also be integrated with third-party Crestron and Control4 home automation control systems. The Sooloos music library can also be ‘watched’ by third-party music control apps whilst the rich metadata and audio performance provided by the system is preserved.
Sooloos is designed to send the optimum signal to each end point via high performance analogue, digital and Speakerlink Cross platform outputs. Integrated TuneIn Radio alongside streaming from TIDAL and Rhapsody enables clients to curate their own exclusive music collection very quickly and easily so they can build a comprehensive library.
