Hi John,

Speakers are "sitting" on Meridian own footers (spikes in the middle). Only 3 of them per speaker, 2 in front and one at the rear. Can be "elevated" to desired height or "tilt" forward/backward. Of course to a certain extent only.

Cheers.

Hi Steve,
I've moved on since. Looking back, sometimes its for the better but for sure, this one move is with a tinge of regret on hindsight. I've also moved out of this home now rented out for some passive income.
As Meridian had "killed" Sooloos, it does not make any sense to get the 'se' version anymore.
Cheers

Thank you for responding to my query on a thread 8 years dormant. In your case it wouldn’t have been worth the price for basically a pair of tweeters. Mine are from 2010 so I’m trying to convince myself 10 years is around the time amps are due for a refresh anyhow. Still difficult to justify tho.

I bumped an ancient thread after I was able to acquire a pair of my dream speakers, but I was answered within a couple weeks! I was impressed.

Here's my 3 years old humble system. So far, kept the itch away.

In the beginning, I had the same worries as the room is indeed small. But somehow the Devialet has some “matching software” known as SAM, which took out my worries the moment they played together. It’s like a match in heaven. No boom, loud or soft, it just played on. I’ve been so happy that I discarded my idea on selling them off. As I could barely noticed the difference between the series 1 vs series 2 Alexia (could be due to my aging and/or room size), I also dropped the idea on upgrading, more so for having a Dave Wilson legacy product. And of course, saved me a bundle. In summary, I’m happy. If I would go for a change, would be SET and Horns. That would definitely be out due to my tiny space. Hope that answers your question. Cheers!
