Meridian/Sooloos First Offspring
The recent marriage between Meridian and Sooloos didn't take long to bear progeny. They've started resorting the Sooloos line of media server products beginning with the Control:One touchscreen which is now the Control 10.
Next they've developed a tabletop touchscreen called the Control 20 which features a 15" screen (the Control 10 screen is still 17") and along with the 10, an interface on the back allowing it to be directly connected to Meridian's powered speakers and Comm S network.
The Control 20 will retail for $3,500 and is expected to be available in a couple months. Though the prototype being shown at CES is still not finalized, there were also a pair of 12 volt triggers and S/PDIF output on the back.
On the front of the Control 20 is a volume knob, meaning that all you'll need is the touchpanel, some storage, a Sooloos Source and Meridian active loudspeakers to be in business.
We'll have more Sooloos interface news later in the show.
