Complete Connection – Complete Control Meridian i80 Universal Dock for iPod®

With the F80 music system Meridian, one of the consumer electronics industry’s most highly regarded luxury manufacturers, engineered what is widely acknowledged the very ultimate in compact entertainment systems. So any new design released to work with the F80 must naturally be equally impressive.

With this in mind, Meridian has unveiled the new i80 with Universal Dock for iPod®. Engineered and built at the company’s UK headquarters, the new design elevates your humble iPod or iPhone to new musical heights, offering breathtaking audio quality.

While the iPod is central to so many people’s lives and has many outstanding attributes, as Meridian technical director Bob Stuart says, “It is not really capable of offering the same sense of ‘experience’ that a high quality audio system can. With the i80 dock we are marrying together the convenience that the iPod offers with our expertise in sound quality and engineering.?

The i80 offers the very finest solution for listening to, and sharing your, digital music collection, whatever iPod you may own. The i80 connects to the F80 simply and neatly, allowing you immediate and complete control of the music library stored on the iPod through the F80 remote control or its front panel buttons. And the track information is relayed via the F80’s exceptionally clear OLED display so you can easily see the playlist or song is playing. The i80 also charges your iPod so you get continuous play with no need for extra power cables. Furthermore, when you connect an i80 dock to the F80 system, intelligent conversion technology actively processes compressed music formats on your iPod or iPhone and reveals more of the original recording, helping your music sound its best.

The i80 doesn’t just work beautifully alongside the F80; it sits beautifully alongside the F80 too. Its physical design echoes the sensuous curve of the F80 in miniature, while the heavy die-cast zinc alloy base and high precision moulded shell means it is beautifully built, too. The dock, available in standard gloss black, can be coordinated effortlessly with clip-on red or yellow trims so it matches your particular F80 model.

Availability: August 2008
