Conclusions about the Meridian Prime Headphone Amplifier / Prime Power Supply
Most office desks are cluttered, with little to no extra space. The mere thought of adding a headphone amp and separate power supply is laughable for many. Even if you are one to keep a clean, minimalistic desk, the last thing you want is to clutter it up with a big amp. There is something to be said about how small the Meridian Prime and Prime Power Supply are. This is a case where bigger isn’t always better and even though you are certainly paying a premium for its small stature, you get a lot of quality components and brilliant engineering inside.
I found the Meridian Prime to match up very well with the Audeze headphones and should definitely be on the audition list for users of those cans. The Prime’s clean and neutral sound played well with the LCD-X’s warm and lush tone. With its 6.35mm and 3.5mm headphone outputs, the Meridian also makes a great amp for those with a variety of headphones and in-ear monitors. Don’t let its size fool you, the Meridian is a force to be reckoned with, do check it out.
