  • Meridian

Meridian founders Bob Stuart and Allen Boothroyd met in Cambridge in the early 1970s and it was through a shared love of music they became friends. But it was their desire to better hear the music they loved that inspired them to design and manufacture their own audio equipment. And so Meridian was born.Brought together by a shared love of music, their professional partnership was born of their desire to better hear it. Since founding the company more than 30 years ago in 1977, both have remained at the heart of their respective disciplines: Bob heading all technological developments; Allen leading the design team.
The results have been some of the most highly-praised audio equipment in the world, setting many a high-performance audio standard. As well as innumerable international awards for their components' performance and technology, Meridian's founders have the British Design Council Award for Outstanding British Products an unbeaten three times.Based in Cambridgeshire, as they have been from the company's inception, every Meridian piece is still conceived, engineered, and built in the UK.
