    Re: Magico S5 mk2

    i should clarify. i have a wide rack that is low to the ground and happens to be about as tall off the ground as the two woofers are. the equipment is between the speakers so i'm sure i'm losing out...

  5. Re: Recommended medium to large bookshelf/stand mounted speakers?

    sorry for the double post, but not knowing what the potenial budget might be, i was really really impressed by the zellaton legacy. what a wonderful sound.

    Re: MBL 101e MK2

    finally got to hear the 101's. to start they were spread pretty far apart - didn't have my laser measure on me but i would guesstimate 10feet and i was sitting about 6 feet back. the sound was nice,...

    on top of that, setting up a true blind or double blind experiment is not a trivial task as you're back to this mess of making sure you're isolating the right variables in a system that has many....

    Re: Magico M2

    Is it possible the Q1's didn't have enough power? It's something I recently noticed - the best way I can describe it is a "jump to attention". No doubt in my mind that the big pass monos are helping...

    To follow up on my message yesterday and some of the subsequent posts about magicos...we must keep in mind that if the recording doesn't have the dynamic range there won't be much jump to speak of...

    beautiful amps! especially found your comment about the decay very interesting. seems like these iron-man amps are the proverbial iron fist in a velvet glove.
