Description of features
DVD-ROM drive
At the heart of the G Series DVD players is a high-speed computerstyle DVD-ROM drive – the best type of drive to use to ensure
accurate data recovery from all types of disc, while providing a
stable platform that can be changed in the future, if necessary, to
keep pace with new requirements.
In addition to regular CDs (including MP3 CD-ROMS) and DVDs,
the players can also play most hybrid varieties. The players can
handle both DVD-Video and DVD-Audio discs, decoding Dolby
Digital, DTS or MLP data streams and extracting or downmixing
them to stereo if required.
The drive normally operates at standard speed; however it is
capable of recovering data a great deal faster when required,
enabling it to make more attempts to recover accurate data from
3
Introduction
a problem disc. Because of this, the drive can perfectly recover the
data from nearly all discs.
Unlike other players that use a mechanical approach to try to
lower jitter by minimising drive vibration, the G Series DVD players
employ a triple buffering system to minimise jitter, maximizing HF
transparency and sound stage precision and stability. The result of
this sophisticated effort is that the players deliver ultra-low jitter,
with sound and picture quality second only to Meridian’s 800
Reference DVD/CD Player.
The digital electronics as a whole are driven by a new design of
high-stability clocking system which further reduces jitter and
ensures that the highest level of detail is recovered from a disc. All
digital data is accurately re-clocked. Multiple power supplies ensure
that digital and analogue circuitry are kept separate.
User interface
The G Series DVD players include a comprehensive front-panel
user interface which allows access to all the features of the unit.
The players can be reset to a standard Type which configures all
the required settings as appropriate for a particular application.
In addition, an on-screen display (OSD) allows you to configure
specific settings individually.
The players employ Flash ROM memory for the operating system,
so software updates can be downloaded from the Internet and
installed via a PC connected to the serial port on the back panel.
The serial port also allows full remote control and configuration of
the unit.
Audio
The G98DH and G91 provide three principal S/PDIF coax outputs
designated L/R, L/R Surround, and C/LFE. These typically connect
to Meridian processors, or feed a stereo signal to a pair of DSP
loudspeakers. If configured for MHR SmartLink they, or the adjacent
combined 15-way D-type connector, carry high-sample rate
encrypted data from DVD discs for the highest fidelity of decoding
and reproduction. The SmartLink also informs a downstream
Meridian processor of the signal source, so that it can switch
processing modes automatically.
The G98AH provides six channels of analogue output. These feature
true 24-bit DACs that operate at sample rates up to 192kHz for the
maximum possible audio quality. The audio connectors have goldplated contacts.
All models provide an additional S/PDIF digital output which
delivers a stereo downmix or bitstream signal.
Preamplifier and tuner
The G91 includes a preamplifier and integral radio tuner. The main
stereo analogue preamp output is either fixed, or variable via the
front-panel knob which controls the Meridian proprietary digital/
analogue volume control as used in the 800 Series and DSP 8000.
The tuner provides AM (LW/MW) and FM (VHF stereo Band II)
reception with RDS and is fitted with its own 96kHz, 24-bit A/D
stage. Digital signal processing provides a sophisticated FM stereo
blend/width control which allows the user to minimise noise on

On the video side, advanced video circuit designs, matched
phase video filters, and a broadcast-quality video encoder are
employed to deliver low-noise images of outstanding colour depth
and resolution. Separate ultra-low jitter master video and audio
oscillators allow picture and sound to be independently optimized,
ensuring that the G Series DVD players deliver breathtakingly clear
pictures.
Video processor/scaler
All models include a unique high-resolution video processor/scaler.
This processor can receive composite, S-video, and interlaced
component, and convert between the formats, or to the highdensity multimedia interface (HDMI) standard, to provide a single
video output for all the video sources in the system. A bypass
function allows progressive or high definition component video to
be routed directly to the component output only.

channels of PCM at up to 96kHz or a 5.1 channel bitstream. Builtin broadcast-quality circuits and both Meridian and Faroudja video

video inputs you can adjust the output aspect ratio, horizontal
picture position, and vertical picture position. In addition for the

The HDMI output can be connected to a DVI input if the device
supports HDCP copy protection, using a suitable adaptor cable.

Troubleshooting
We expect you to achieve superb results with the DVD player. If, however, you encounter any
problems, either when installing and configuring it, or during operation, please check the
following pages for suggested solutions.
If these suggestions fail to cure the problem, please contact your Meridian dealer for further
assistance.

There is interference on the radio and/or television when
the DVD player is switched on
Before following the steps below, ensure all units are switched off.
If this equipment does cause or suffer from interference to/from
radio or television reception then the following measures should
be tried:
• Reorient the receiving aerial (or antenna) or route the antenna
cable of the receiver as far as possible from the DVD player and
its cabling.
• Check that the correct source has been selected on your
preamplifier.
• Try playing another disc. If this disc works, check the problem disc
for signs of dirt or damage.

The G Series DVD players include video switching, so each source
can be associated with a video input or the internal DVD.
• Select the DVD source.
To associate the internal DVD with another source see Configuring

Problems with high definition television sets
Not all high definition television sets are fully compatible with this
product and may cause artifacts to be displayed in the picture. In
case of problems switch to the standard definition output.
AM tuner reception is poor
Position the antenna to maximise the strength of the station you
want to receive and to reduce interference from other stations on
nearby frequencies.
Position the antenna away from items that generate electrical
interference, such as fluorescent tubes or televisions.
RDS station names are not being received
Not all stations transmit the station name in all areas, and RDS will
only be received if the signal strength is good.
If the station name is not available you can define a preset station
with a name; see the G Series System Guide.

MP3 discs can be created from a computer using appropriate MP3

Tr o u b l e s h o o t i n g
Maintenance
Cleaning
To clean the case, display panel, and keypad
• Disconnect the power cord before cleaning the unit.
The exterior surfaces of Meridian G Series products are made from
solid anodised aluminium, powder coated steel, thermoplastic
rubber, and glass.
They are designed to be easily wiped clean with a dry, lint free
cloth. Greasy marks should be removed by light rubbing with a
slightly damp cloth and a trace of proprietary glass cleaner. Do
not use any other solvent or abrasive based cleaners. Dust can be
removed from the disc drive tray with a small dry brush when the
drawer is open.
Ensure that no liquid enters the casework and that the product is
completely dry before re-connection.
To clean the audio and video connections
The audio and video sockets on the back of the product are gold
plated and do not need to be cleaned if gold-plated phono plugs
are used. Otherwise, it is recommended that you unplug and
reconnect the plugs at least once a year. A proprietary contact
cleaner can be used to some advantage.
The electrical digital output should be treated in a similar way.
To change the mains fuse
• Remove the mains connector, and pull out the drawer above the
power input to access the fuse.
Before replacing a blown fuse, it is best to ascertain the cause of
the failure.
The fuse drawer includes a spare fuse. This should be replaced by a
fuse of the same rating.
