    Thanks Bill. Itís certainly rarified air at this level, but since selling an entire MBL XTreme Reference system in December, I know itís possible. I believe one U.S. dealer has already sold a pair of M9ís and full kudos to him. Thatís awesome. Iíve also seen a lot of WAMM installs (Andrewís setup looks great. I love how his room treatments are all hidden) so thereís definitely opportunities out there at that level.

    I am just trying to figure out how much cash I would need to have to prioritize the purchase of an M9 over the very long list of things I would rather do with this amount (starting with buying a very very nice sail boat).

    But great for those who have reached that level of wealth and are comfortable enough with it to display it through the ownership of such speakers.

    Cheers,

    Re: MAGICO M9ís

    Does this product offer trickle down tech? Is it a statement of current tech? Either way it takes balls to step into the heavyweight ring and put it all out there.

    I like the way you think.

    I can not afford a speaker like the Magico M9, though I would love to own the M3. In Tokyo perhaps even the M2. I do have the Q3s and think they are wonderful speakers. I also have a very nice sailboat, though it would be a different story in Tokyo where I lived in 1990. I can tell you that the real cost of a nice sailboat is not in the initial purchase price, but rather in the ownership costs including maintenance, new sails, and storage during the off season. It also goes way up if you want to race. It is a continuous expense ending only when the boat is sold. Audio, for the most part is not about ongoing costs, unless one is talking about expensive cartridges, but about the initial purchase price and then the depreciation. IMO, these are very different ways to spend money. I know many people with nice systems and it is not about displaying a level of wealth to others. Their systems are mostly for their own enjoyment in dedicated listening rooms with few visitors, though there are surely exceptions. I suspect the mighty M9 will make a lasting impression on all who are lucky enough to see and hear the speaker.

    To start with, improved speaker cones, crossovers and cabinet.

    you are right. i am just surprised we dont see a big array of multiple mid drivers.
    as for the cabinet, i would love to see the internal structure. the change to aluminium honeycombs alone isnt doing much. so it would be interesting where they placed the formers etc and the structural concept as a whole.
    dont get me wrong, i am not questining the m9.....would love to put a pair in my garden

    These are fair points. In high powered big scaling speakers, two midrange drivers would be appropriate. The aluminum honeycomb cabinet sidewalls give equal strength with less weight and cost then solid carbon fiber sidewalls, but that would not necessarily sound better.

    The biggest improvement in these loudspeakers is moving from rohacell to a much stiffer aluminum honeycomb in the speaker cone core and the development of a more advanced active crossover. There are other improvements such as in the voice coils and in the internal cabinet design to reduce diffraction.

    Hi Peter,

    Thanks.

    Fully agree. I do a tiny bit of sailing myself and have so far resisted the urge of buying a boat out of the concern that I may serve it more than it serves me (including running costs). Day or week rental has so far proven to be a decent solution. But there is nonethless a list of vessels I would love to be able to really get to know well some day through extended usage that can only come from ownership. We will see.

    My comment about displaying wealth wasnít about the intent of the owner. I am aware that being able to afford such speakers comes with a financial maturity that typically comes with a level of personnel development that results in money being looked at differently. But, and thatís the connection with these speakers, they do the talking for you and that can only not be troublesome in some very privileged spheres where the visitors wonít mind.

    To me there is a clear line btwn a 50,000-100,000 US$ system that, albeit expensive, is a matter of priorities for many people (vs buying a more or less expensive car for example) fortunate enough to live in developped countries, and multi million US$ systems such as those including M9s.

    Not sure if I am managing to make myself understood.

    Btw, our path may have crossed since I have been in Tokyo since 1997.

    Cheers,
    Bernard
