    My initial thoughts compared to the Pass setup, the 3-series brings a level of "Clarity" to the music. Bass is tighter and still deep and Mid's & Highs are less warm, but not overly analytical. I noted a change in "speed" as well in the way the music is presented. I have the setup for another day and hope to get some additional listening done tonight.

    Based on the initial listening, Soulution is on my radar for my S3's and future looking towards M3's.
    Soulution and Magico are a great pairing. The best Magico I have heard to date.

    Interesting that the integrated has a pre out. Wonder how will that work.
    Also, I'm curious about the specs of the separates.

    Anyone had the chance to hear these in Munich?

    Thanks,

    Its what makes the hobby fun . Having heard the Q3, S3, M3, and A3 I wouldn't pair solution with the Q3 or A3 myself as I think the Mid/High's would be too much on the analytical side for me.
    Main System:
    Speakers: Magico S3 | Amp: Pass XA160.8's | Pre-Amp: Pass XP-20 | Digital: DCS Vivaldi 3/4 stack | Phono-Pre: ARC Ref 2se | Phono: AMG Viella w\ 12JT & Benz LPS cart.

    Living Room:
    Speakers: KEF LS50 | Amp: Primaluna Prologue Premium | Digital: Lumin D2
