    You really have to see the finish in person to fully appreciate how gorgeous they are. Glad i went with the red.
    I'm told they will need 200-400hrs to full cook. I'm in no hurry.

    BTW... The Accuphase A-75 (which i was told would not be a good match,by some) is just fine with the load.
    Plays just as loud ,full and musical as i would want.

    Well done! How do they do so close to the front walls? Iíve been considering a pair that due to foot traffic may require similar placement. I always see Magicos set up really far out into the room (from 1/4 to 1/3rd) so this is an intriguing possibility if itís working for you it may work in my setup as well.

    The pic is a bit misleading. There actually about 20 inches from the wall . I'm like you i've always seen Magicos placed far out away from room boundaries. Maybe Magicos really are very room friendly and as a consequence give a you greater placement choice and are far easier to set up than you might expect,or have come to believe.That position has always worked for every loudspeaker in that room, as long as i can remember and this makes pair eight. The S7's were actually easier to place than the Strads. All i know is I'm totally pleased ,especially how transparent they are. The Strads ,in comparison ,sounded like a blanket was thrown over them.

    Gorgeous set up! Congrats on getting the Magico speakers. I envy your beautiful Accuphase stack. The Accuphase A75 is a beast of an amp! (I know because I have the Accuphase A70, which is similar in specs).

    I really loved my Strads. They served me well for over seven years.
    I hope whomever gets the pleasure of using them will love and cherish them like i did.
    However..somewhat to my amazement and surprise the very moment I heard the S7's in my system ...I forgot all about them.
    I had made the right decision and it was definitely the right time to move on.

    Now you can rightly claim that photo in your moniker. Congratulations. If S7 are anywhere similar to my M3, I thought they started to sound very good after 5 hours, but now after 5 months they are something else.
