Excerpt: Some might be tempted to dismiss the Meridian F80 as an overpriced ghettoblaster with some Ferrari branding, but do so and you'll be making a massive mistake. Think of it as a transportable system that'll serve in a second room, holiday home, or even as your main system if you're short of space. It's an unusual move for a high-end manufacturer like Meridian to produce such a leftfield product, but we're glad the company was brave enough to do it.
Pros: Good looks, portability, lots of features, including DVD video
Cons: Complicated (but worthwhile) set-up procedure, sound hampered somewhat by small size
