Using the Media Source 200
The Media Source 200 is designed to be used in
conjunction with a Meridian Digital Media System
Core hardware or software product.
Media Source 200 Web interface
The Media Source 200 can be configured using
its internal web interface, which can be accessed
over the network from any device that supports a
web browser.
You can find its address using the Meridian
Sooloos Configuration Application, or in systems
with a Control:One, Control 10, or Control 15,
through the Device Manager. Alternatively, it can
be found by interrogating your router and locating
the IP address that matches the MAC address
of the Media Source 200 product (the product’s
serial number is its MAC address).
It provides the following information and settings:
Setting
Description
Identification and For information and support use.
Version numbers
Current status
The source and volume.
Comms
configuration
The system and product addresses,
product category, and IR mode.

Infra-red receiver
To configure the Media Source 200 as
controller
The front panel of the Media Source 200
includes an infra-red receiver, to allow it to
control a Meridian system using the MSR+ or
Audio Core 200 handset.
In a simple system with M6 or DSP3300
loudspeakers you should make the Media Source
200 the controller, as follows:
The infra-red receiver has the following settings:
Setting
Description
Controller
It receives infra-red commands for
the Meridian system.
Not Controller
It ignores infra-red commands.
Auto
This is the initial setting. The
Meridian system will automatically
designate one unit as the controller.
The setting can be changed from the Media
Source 200’s internal web interface; see
opposite page.
Either:
• Press Clear on the MSR+ to start the auto
setup process.
If the Media Source 200 is designated as
controller the left and right indicators will give
a long flash. The left indicator will then indicate
infra-red reception.
Or:
• In the Media Source 200’s internal Web
interface select the Controller setting.
The product will then respond to both the MSR+
and the AC200 handset.

The Media Source 200 can be connected to
a Meridian Audio Core product such as the
AC200, or directly to a pair of DSP loudspeakers
such as the DSP3200, to play music from a
Meridian Digital Media System in a separate
zone. The examples show the music stored on a
Media Core 200.
If you are connecting to an AC200:
You can adjust the volume in the zone, or
select the music, via the iPhone or iPad control
application.
• Connect the Media Source 200 SpeakerLink
output to the SpeakerLink input on one of
the DSP loudspeakers, using a Meridian
SpeakerLink lead.
In these configurations the Media Source 200
is powered via the SpeakerLink cable, and no
external power unit is necessary.
• Connect the Network socket to one of the
LAN network connections on your Router,
using a CAT5 cable.
• Make sure the WAN/Internet port on the
Router is connected to the rest of your
network, or to your Cable/DSL Modem.
• Connect the Media Source 200 SpeakerLink
output to the Audio Source 200 SpeakerLink
input, using a Meridian SpeakerLink lead.
If you are connecting to a pair of DSP
loudspeakers:
• Connect the SpeakerLink output from that
loudspeaker to the SpeakerLink input of the
other loudspeaker, using another Meridian
SpeakerLink lead.
You can optimise the loudspeakers for their room
placement using the options in the Speaker
configuration section of the Media Source 200
Web interface.
