    If your AC power mains circuit can handle it, so can the Everest. It can accept a 30A rated power circuit. If you have monster amplifiers that require a dedicated 20 or 30 amp circuit you should consider the Omega QR for each amplifier. As an...

    Yes, you did. Joe, I had a buddy that had the MSB Discrete DAC and we didi a number of evaluations with and without a preamp in the system. Amps were Wavac 300B SETs (which were amazing, BTW...) and invariably preferred it with a preamp in the...

    Well, the M9 isn't a line source speaker. And there are other major speaker brands that have chosen single point tweeter designs for their SOTA flagships, e.g., Wilson, YG Acoustics, Rockport, Gryphon, Tidal, etc. I don't think their approaches...

    Puma Cat replied to a thread MAGICO M9ís in Magico
    Single point source tweeters are good; in fact, optimal. Multiple tweeters just make driver integration and front baffle design more complex. From a systems engineering perspective, simpler solutions to achieve functionality are better than more...

    Puma Cat replied to a thread MAGICO M9ís in Magico
    Yeah, judging from the speaker's size relative to the size of the racks, the M9 looks to be between 5'9" and 6' tall. So, that would likely put the tweeter at or near ear level when seated. And I would agree it would need to be in quite a large...

    It’s always hard to tell from a photo how big it actually is, would have to see it in person. I like the basic shape. And I am sure it will sound incredible. Notice that the tweeter is quite low, so if thats an indicator, it is a big one. I am...

    For me M2 and M3 are really attractive. But the M9 doesn't cut it looks wise. IMHO of course. (For the record, I am a Magico owner.)
