    I agree. Just because it's different doesn't make it better for all speaker sizes.

    The fact that the parameters are different, doesn't mean, that the drive unit is better by default - it is certainly better for a given application.

    IMO we will first see the new S7, Q1 and Q7, than we see the new M3 mk 2.

    They retrofitted a new driver in SCC which was a mid-life product, and they didn't even attach a Mk2 badge to it after doing so.

    I won't be holding my breath on the M3.

    Re: Magico M2

    The M2's are in my opinion the most beautiful Magico ever.

    I'm expecting them to sound sublime in small to medium sized rooms with unbeatable speed and articulation.

    Will it be better than the M3 and/or do we need a Mark II version of the M3, I say no. That said, I have ordered up a pair of demo M2's and hope they will arrive just in time for Montreal show, late March.

    Back to Mark II's. I don't believe there is a single model in Magico's current line up that is in need for a refresh, including the S7's. Only a guess on my part, but I'm expecting an expansion to M and especially the A series before we see any new Mark II's.

    Wishing everyone a Happy New Year.

    Cheers,
    Mark.

    The S7 needs a refresh, as this is the only one with flat top left.

    I love the flat top, makes levelling nice and easy ;-)

    I used to pile vinyls on top of both speakers, when I had the S3 mk1.

    Re: Magico M2

    Gorgeous speaker. Thanks for posting the image.

    I understand it is constructed like, and has more in common with, the flagship M6 than it does with the M3. I wonder then why the base/footer and bottom design resembles the M3 more than it does the M6. Must be cost.

    It also makes me wonder why Magico never developed a Q2 speaker.
