Read the review on this month's Stereophile. Not a great review!!

Ya know, I've sold Meridian's products in the past. And, overall, their amps, pre-amps, and digital sources - I felt - were otherwise pretty descent gear!! I never have been a fan of their speakers for some reason though. They always sounded rather Dark to my ears.
I can't tell you why the speakers aren't really all that special, IMO, especially since the active speaker - mated with superior DAC's and such - should offer some otherwise superb quality sound! Dynamics should be stellar, and they're pretty descent (not as good as others, I presume).
Overall, I've heard much more musical, open, clear, uncolored, resolved, and even dynamic speaker offerings else-where, for much less - enough to make me not consider Meridian's speaker offerings in the past (even if it did save me some amplification expense.)
I would hope they would improve their speakers in their line, personally.
