Ask an expert / Boothroyd Stuart Meridian M1 Mk2 active loudspeakers

I have a pair of Meridian M1 mk2, I am the original owner from new although I sold them at the time Bob Stuart messed things up with balanced cables and Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday I’ve definitely got it right now modules for the 101.

I bought them back a few of years ago but didn’t  have the room, time or money to do them justice.  They are now sitting in a cupboard rather tired looking cabinet wise, they still work but as you can imagine the electronics are showing their age.

I remember you always spoke highly of them, and was looking for some help as in what can be done with them, I don’t have it in me to throw them out.  Can you help?

You raise an interesting set of questions. I’m delighted to offer help. First, I still use my M1s. In some respects they offer characteristics that no other combination of components, new or used, can offer at any price. In particular, the astonishing (and I choose that word carefully) ultra-bass performance in terms of attack, grip, weight, slam and texture. And then of course there is the incredible ability to sound detailed and revealing at even low sound pressure levels.

My son recently paid £950 for a pair in very good condition. Well worth every penny.

Re the amp trays:

Mr. Colin Howard (formerly production director at BS Meridian) can sort these for you. He’s done this for me with excellent results. At home here, I and my son replaced the leaking power supply capacitors. Identical spec units to the original, but slightly smaller than original, are available from Panasonic. After this, the dynamics returned. If you are not comfortable doing this, get Colin to do this for you. Inexpensive. Colin can be reached on
