    Re: Magico A5’s Arrive!!!!

    I'm happy with my M3's, for sure. And I'm glad I bought them when I did. The Aussie $ has tanked against the US $ in the past week. If I were to buy A5 at today's exchange rate they would be more than half the price I paid for new M3.

    Re: Magico A5’s Arrive!!!!

    From what I can understand in this thread the A5 will replace the S3
    Usually an “old” model is replaced by a new one and most people expect or are afraid of a MK XX
    So usually you must pay more money for the “upgrade” to he new model
    In this case you can save 30 percent of the money and get an upgrade and pay less money for the new one.

    This kind of “self-cannibalism” is not so frequent... But maybe will be good for us to See new and better models for less money
    I am really very happy to own the S3 MK2 and how they sound, but feel a bit disappointed by Magico and his strategy...

    Unless color was an issue it would be hard to justify putting your money down on a new pair of S3Mk2 when A5 is now a competitive and cheaper option.

    Wrong. The S3 Mk2 isn’t going anywhere anytime soon and still offers some advantages as discussed.

    This will definitely be a good debate for a buyer. I’ll give the tweeter advantage to the S3 Mk2. Love that tweeter. The A5 is damn close though.

    Re: Magico A5’s Arrive!!!!

    Does M3 and S3Mk2 have the same 1" diamond coated Be tweeter?

    That is what I noticed most going from Q3 to M3, that tweeter!

    Going from S3 to Q3 what I noticed most was everything!

    For clarification, the tweeters on the S series are not the same as they are on M series (26mm vs. 28mm and a complete different motor system, almost 3 times the cost on the M).

    That M tweeter = mmmmmmm heaven!
