    Just heard from a branch of Audio-T who have just checked with Meridian. They tell me that to upgrade a Meridian 568 mk I to a 568.2 will cost approximately £900, or approximately £1200 if you want the MHR smartlink.

    Edit 13/1/2003: Got a slightly different story from Meridian. See lower down thread.

    That's substantially more than I was expecting. I think I've just lost interest in the idea of buying a 2nd hand 568.1. :(

    I was guessing that it might cost about £500-£800 for the 568 upgrades, but, typically, Meridian never seem to give you any definite information. We all know the upgrades are imminent, just think they could keep their customers (me) and potential customers (you) better informed.

    I'm waiting for the 596 upgrade(s)

    Just been on the phone to Meridian, and they say that it will cost £700 to upgrade a 568 to a 568.2, plus another £440 to give it the MHR smartlink (for if you want to use with with a 598 for DVD-Audio, for example).

    I found out the other day as mines had to go back to Meridian, so I thought get the upgrade done at same time - then I heard the price, picked myself off the floor and thought maybe time to sell it !

    Probably a rash statement, its just started me thinking.
    I'm going to see how I feel when I get it back from Meridian, just in case they've added any extras !
    But, if I did then around £2195
