In Ultimate Niche Move, Meridian Intros Component Headphone Amplifier

meridian-0314Listening to music on headphones, while on the move, is certainly the top way we experience music nowadays. But Meridian’s latest product is betting that there are enough of you out there listening to music on headphones sitting at a desk or at home that you’ll appreciate the company’s Prime Headphone Amplifier.

Meridian’s Prime Headphone Amplifier features an analog signal path, powerful amplifier, multiple inputs and even special Analog Spatial Processing (ASP) to, according to them, help you forget you’re listening on headphones at all — other than they’re on top of your ears?

Housed in a metal enclosure, Meridian Prime provides three inputs, one dedicated and optimized to USB sources for computer audio, discrete pure analog inputs on RCA for traditional sources, and a 3.5-millimeter connection. But, this thing better be good as they’re asking $2,000 for it — yes, $2,000. Here are all the specs.
