DbM welcomed an enthusiastic audience of more than 50 smart home integrators to its recent DbM Live event held at the Meridian Audio HQ in Huntingdon as it showcased a series of new high-performance audio, projection and screen technologies from core DbM brands.  


The first showing and demonstrations of Meridian Audio’s acclaimed new flagship DSP8000 XE loudspeakers drew high praise at the event. The DSP8000 XE is the first Meridian loudspeaker to emerge from the company’s Extreme Engineering Program, created to re-imagine every element of Meridian’s product platforms, including both software and hardware platforms. In a spine-tingling demonstration session, DbM Live visitors were brought into the very heart of a variety of different recordings as the DSP8000 XE brought to life every detail, emotion and the true sense of scale that make up a music track or performance.

The brand new 3000mm wide Modular Seamless Display from LG also made a sizeable impact. Perfectly suited to large, open plan media room spaces, the huge MSD 3000 delivers a bright, high-quality picture thanks to its 3 in 1 surface mounted diodes (SMD) and fine pitch RGB LED technology.


DbM visitors also heard details of the attractive DbM support package available for this affordable big screen solution, covering delivery, mounting and installation, aftercare and maintenance.

Elsewhere, visitors were also presented with the new range of nexgentec Audio over IP (AoIP) solutions now exclusively available in the UK from DbM, the latest Freya DCI home cinema projector from Barco, demonstrated in the awe-inspiring Meridian Reference Cinema, and the latest products from Trinnov and Waterfall Audio.

“We’d like to thank everyone for joining us at this DbM Live experience, our first in-person event in Huntingdon for nearly three years,” says Barry Sheldrick, DbM’s Director of Sales. “The tremendous feedback that we’ve received shows that there is absolutely no substitute for seeing, hearing and experiencing the real thing in this industry. We’re delighted to be back with demonstrations that can inspire integrators to achieve great things for their clients.”

All products shown at the event remain on permanent display, so please contact DbM to book your personal demonstration or meet with us at the AV EMEA BV booth 2Q150 at Integrated Systems Europe 2022.

"“The DSP8000 XE demonstrations pick up on so much detail that’s typically missed. The picture from the Barco Freya projector was superb, and the installation flexibility for the type of job we do is very appealing. I was also impressed by the audio over IP range from nexgentec.”   "

"“The DSP8000 XE’s were amazing and created a massive soundscape. The Freya projector blew my mind. I’ve never seen a picture like that.”"

"“We’re working already with nexgentec and think it’s a great solution. The level of control you get is phenomenal, and the ability to divide a space up into different segments in large multi-purpose spaces is really helpful.” "
