Meridian 506

Description

The 506 mk1 had the same CDM/4 swing arm laser as the 200 series players, an LED segment display and 18-bit D/A convertor.

Later versions used a modified version of a Philips linear tracking laser sled and have a dot matrix LED display and either 20bit or 24bit converters.
