Meyer X40
« on: February 22, 2019, 01:33:33 am »

Anybody had a chance to demo the Meyer X40 point source speaker in Amsterdam? Marketing buzzwords aside, do they sound better than UPJ and UPQ? This product line seems to aim at d&b Y series.

They've just announced this (the first in a whole new line). Did they show it in Amsterdam?

Closer to the size and output of the UPA, but 20lbs lighter. Price point is $5,600 list price.

Hopefully we'll start hearing some demos in the States soon.

Yea demos at ISE. Some people have heard them and said these X40s will be a leading player in the point source market. This price point is only a bit more expensive than UPJ. I think its a must buy if they sound that good. The marketing people are claiming borrowed technology from Leo series including new amp, drivers, etc. so I don't know. Certainly is better than old UPAs but overthrowing d&b and l'acoustic is tough task.

It is possible I may get pair in the next few months, still not sure if I want to bite or not, been debating it for the past few weeks. If I am able to get my hands on a pair I will try to set up a demo for those in the MN area, I have access to a venue with D&B point source boxes. I will update if I bite or am able to wrangle a demo rig off of the rep.

If you set up a demo, let me know. My brother lives in St. Paul, and has a new baby. I could make it a threefer to come up and hear them.

Does Meyer use FIR filters in their DSP?

What are you using right now? I already have UPJs and UPQs so I don't know where these X40s will fit in. If they sound better than those two then the decision is easy for me. It seems like it can be very loud with those 8".

They don't mention FIR filters or any processing voodoo in the literature but most likely use them to correct phase and response.

Merlijn,
I'm thinking about getting a pair of X42 to cover an L shape room with about 15 ft wide each zone. The X42 data is not available in MAPP yet and the closest thing in horizontal coverage is UPQ-2. Do you think I can cover 10ft wide (where most of the listeners will be ) with +/-3db at about 12-15ft away. It seems like 60deg on X42 should be able to spray at least 15ft with a focused beam.
