Britain’s Meridian Audio Ltd., creator elegant digital audio and video components and systems, has far more in common with Alfred Dunhill Ltd. than quintessential Britishness: the firm’s partnered to develop a new, stunning, collaborative one-piece music system. Engineered exclusively by Meridian Audio for Dunhill, the Alfred Dunhill AD88 Entertainment System exploits Meridian’s peerless expertise in digital audio and loudspeaker design in a handsome, Dunhill-designed superbly finished component no bigger than a desktop humidor.
“Partnering with Alfred Dunhill is an unparalleled opportunity for Meridian to reach new customers: Consumers who value unquestionable quality and heirloom status in equal measure,” says Bob Stuart, Cofounder, Chairman, and Chief Technology Officer of Meridian Audio Limited. “These are just the sort of individuals who are most likely to become future Meridian devotees. Not just in Britain but around the world, the Dunhill name is synonymous with the very finest in craftsmanship and performance. And because we flatter ourselves that the same is true of the Meridian brand within our own, admittedly smaller community, this joint effort is a perfectly ideal collaboration.”
