Meridian G51 stereo receiver Meridian’s G Series line of high performance digital & analogue consumer audio components feature a stylish cabinet design in traditional black or a sleek silver finish. Designed to be either free-standing or rack-mounted, G Series components build on their predecessors, the multi-award-winning 500 and our flagship 800 Series, and include entirely new circuitry developed specifically for the G Series. Multi-layer boards reduce system noise and improve performance. In products which include video capabilities, broadcast-quality, wide-bandwidth video components are employed for maximum image integrity. G Series units are easy to use. Where appropriate, a knob is included to control volume. The positive-action front-panel keys are software-defined: their legends are presented in the vacuum fluorescent display and change intelligently according to context. Full installation configuration of many G Series components is achieved by running a special setup program on a Windows computer, connected to the G Series unit via a serial link, or direct from the front panel. G Series products also include serial ports for remote operation and configuration, along with infra-red sensor input and trigger capabilities, plus Meridian communications ports. A comprehensive back-lit learning/programmable remote is included with products other than amplifiers. The Meridian G51 is the first integrated receiver ever manufactured by the company, and forms a perfect complement to the rest of the G Series range with its super-high-quality reproduction of analogue signals. Although Meridian is today best-known for its digital circuitry, it is a company built on analogue roots, and indeed, superb analogue circuit design and implementation are important parts of all Meridian products. Including a stereo preamplifier, controller and a power amplifier that features a unique low-feedback topology and extremely low output impedance, the G51 stereo receiver provides no less than seven stereo analogue inputs plus, of course, an AM/FM tuner with RDS/RDBS capability. The inputs are nominally designated Aux, CD, TV, Tape, Disc (Phono), DVD and VCR, but can be reconfigured. The G51 can be ordered with either moving coil or moving magnet stereo phono input modules. Two sets of stereo tape outputs are provided, along with two preamp out pairs, one of which is normally jumpered to the adjacent power amplifier input sockets. These jumpers can be removed to connect an analogue surround decoder, for example, while the additional preamp output allows for biamping with an additional 2-channel amplifier such as the G56. A front-panel volume knob (press to mute) activates a specially-designed dual differentially-balanced volume control circuit. This ensures perfect stereo tracking and full frequency range performance at all volume levels.
