Meridian 562V & 565 preamplifier / processor combo [Expired]

no longer for sale

Item Description

Combo Sale: Meridian 562V Video Preamplifier & 565 Surround Sound Processor.

562V includes video switching and optional A/D convertor (for the tape loop or a second zone).

Both 562V and 565 have latest firmware. The 565 is very flexible and offers a wide variety of configurations (we had it configured for 7.1 in our main, and then for 5.1 in our second theater room).

I have owned these units for many years and they are rated 8 for age only. Both units have no marks, scratches or dents of any kind.

I HAVE THE ORIGINAL BOX FOR THE 565 BUT NOT THE 562V. Be assured - the 562V will be well packaged (read my feedback) and both units will be double boxed. Double boxed 565 dimensions are 20" x 20" x 11" and it weighs 25 pounds. I will try to get the second box to the same dimensions.


Original and latest downloaded and laser printed version of manuals provided. 2 firmware chips are also included - which made firmware updates more convenient for me.

3 Meridian digital cables and Meridian comms cable (of course) are included to simplify set up.

These pieces sound excellent and compete favorably with audio/video receivers today.

Meridian 500 series unfortunately does NOT offer MS Windows configuration and are a pain to configure. But, what you pay for in configuration inconvenience, you get in excellent sound quality. I will be happy to configure these pieces for a local sale if asking price is paid.

Selling these pieces because they were seldom used in our second theater room. We first upgraded to Meridian G98 and G68 and then to Meridian 861v6 and 800.

PayPal add 4%.

Note: I also have a 2nd copy of each 562V and 565 manual. If anyone wants these - they're yours for the price of shipping (after this sell).
