Uh ... no ... it is the same old apodizing filter that was introduced in the DSP5200.

Is there anyone who's used the V4 with the new LPSU? Curious how much better it sounds.

Additionally, can you use the V4 with the HD621? Just noodling on the idea that the V4 seems to get "trickle down" technology ~ new LPSU, firmware 8.0, etc., and correct me if I'm wrong, I don't think there is more dsp horsepower in the V6 or 8, they are all running the same MIPS (?)

thx all,

V4 does work with hd621 but I seem to rember that it only does 5.1 HD codec not 7.1 until you go to v6.

V4 is a real deal for the $ nowadays but V6 is sweet spot used.

How about lower priced processors? Does Meridian have any plans for new models below the 861v8? Typically, I'm only interested in the flagship model but the lower priced models add stability to a company.

They have always had more than one level. There is the G series and then the reference 861: http://www.meridian-audio.com/en/collections/products/

I know about those. I mean more current stuff. G68, I believe dates back to 2005?
