The Meridian G02 is a true dual-mono analogue control unit/preamplifier with an extremely high-quality power supply for ultra-low noise and distortion. Featuring a fully-balanced signal path throughout, it is an ideal complement to the G Series power amplifiers and is particularly suited to those who wish to maintain a balanced analogue signal path at the very highest quality of reproduction. Balanced operation can significantly reduce hum and noise and make the system less prone to interference. Incorporating both a preamplifier and controller, the G02 Balanced Control Unit provides seven two channel analogue inputs. Four of these – nominally designated Aux (phono), Radio, TV, and VCR – are unbalanced, while the remaining three – CD, Tape, and Disc – offer balanced inputs on XLR connectors.

The internal architecture of the G02 is balanced throughout, and the first thing that happens to an unbalanced input is electronic balancing for maximum quality throughout the signal chain. Two sets of unbalanced stereo tape outputs are included on the back panel, allowing maximum flexibility in the configuration of tape/decoder loops and multi-room capabilities. The outputs can be configured as a single balanced output by using a suitable breakout cable. Two sets of main outputs are provided: the primary outputs are balanced on XLR male connectors, while unbalanced outputs are also included on phono connectors.

It provides a front-panel volume knob (press to mute), which activates a specially-designed dual differentially balanced volume control circuit. This ensures perfect stereo tracking and full frequency range performance at all volume levels.The sensitivity of each input can be individually adjusted as desired. The Aux input can be configured for either moving coil or moving magnet cartridge operation by the addition of appropriate phono modules (not included).
