The Meridian 561 combines controller functions into a surround processor – bringing many of the features of a 565 + 562V combination to one box. 561 provides extensive audio and video inputs and outputs – including an analogue tape loop and support for the Meridian 2-Room system. The 561 is a full 500 Series controller, ideally suited for use with our DSP loudspeakers, CD players, power amps and 504 tuner.

It also features excellent on-screen display and extensive on-screen help for setup and calibration. The 561 offers both analogue and
direct-digital inputs and outputs.
