It's perhaps a sign of the times that an increasing number of manufacturers are offering special retail promotions to try and help stimulate sales.
Earlier this week Loewe offered discounts of £250-£350 for customers trading in their old telly for a new Loewe model, and now Meridian has joined the fray, offering its owners a fixed value trade-up promotion on some of its CD players and surround sound controllers.
The Meridian offer runs from May 1st to September 30th, and covers selected 500 Series, G Series and 800 Series CD players and surround sound controllers.
For example, Meridian owners can trade up one of the qualifying CD players and receive up to £1750 against the purchase price of a new, higher specification model.
Alternatively, they can trade up a qualifying Meridian surround controller and receive up to £2600 against the price of a new, higher spec model as well as the Meridian HD621 HDMI audio processor.
More after the break
Products that qualify for the trade-up promotion are:
506, 507, 508, 588, G06, G06.2, G07, G08 and G08.2 CD players
541, 561, 565, 568, G61, G61R and G68 surround sound controllers
