G68SL (Feb 2010)

G68 includes multiple analogue and digital audio input types including; Meridian SmartLink for multi-channel connection to one of Meridianís advanced DVD Players such as G96, or for connection to a Meridian HD621; USB audio input for direct connection to personal computers or computer based media servers; Toslink optical digital inputs for connection to set-top boxes, etc; configurable multi-channel analogue inputs for connection to multi-channel music sources.

All analogue inputs are processed at 24-bit, 96 kHz resolution. G68 also provides video inputs and switching for up to three component video sources. HDMI audio sources can be connected to G68 via Meridianís HD621 HDMI Audio Processor and Meridianís digital multi-channel SmartLink.

Providing up to eight-channels of output for Meridianís DSP Loudspeakers via SpeakerLink, G68 can control any of Meridianís most sophisticated multi-channel systems. For customers with traditional power-amplifiers and passive loudspeakers, G68 offers balanced analogue output for up to eight-channels on XLR connectors.


Also consider the G61R as this has no video switching but does include room correction.
