Decided to upload pages from the brochure as information on the X-Balanced System seem to be scarce on the internet nowadays.

Meridian 201

Was searching for something in my store room when I came across the 201.

Front, in stand-by mode


A favourite among Meridian enthusiasts, the 201 cames in a handy compact package with remote capabilites. 

Like other 200-series units, it was designed to be left connected to the mains and goes into a Stand-by mode when turn off via the 209 (aka the flat brick of a remote which eats 9V batteries for breakfast!).

The 201 is a nice, natural sweet sounding pre-amp which can be matched with a variety of non-Meridian equipment. 

Only had the PSU section recapped since it has seen many years of service.

When they do appear on the resale market, normally goes pretty fast.
