A Union Of Giants
The Korean brand began as a radio-manufacturing company for domestic customers. Over its long history, it has grown a reputation for manufacturing more than just radios. But its, at its heart, an audio brand.
Since its founding, Meridian has continuously driven the audio industry forward as a pioneer of high-performance, high-fidelity audio. Meridian is an authority on Digital Signal Processing (DSP) and the field of psychoacoustics, and its influence has been felt in every corner of the industry. Meridian played a fundamental role in the development and adoption of revolutionary audio technologies. For example, Hi-Res Audio and Master Quality Authenticated (MQA). It’s also the creator of the world’s first digital active loudspeaker.
This partnership with UK-based Meridian is a transnational one that will introduce a new level of acoustic performance. One that will be based on natural and authentic sound derived from rigorous research and development.
“This partnership with Meridian is an example of LG’s commitment to creating premium audio systems that can rival the best in the business,” said Seo Young-jae, head of CAV (Convergence Audio and Video) products at LG. “This partnership is all about delivering an outstanding entertainment experience for LG customers worldwide.”
John Buchanan, CEO at Meridian Audio, adds: “We are thrilled to have entered into this unique partnership with LG and confident that our expertise and shared values will see us bring a great number of innovations to the market together, both now and in the future.”
