    Re: Magico M2

    But, but, Mike I am as happy as a pig in mud with my S3Mk2’s now. Ok ok I can accept that the M2’S would like wallering in fancy mud from the Dead Sea or from some exotic thermal springs.
    BUT dang, those Wooden crates put together with screws instead of finger joints are the deal breaker though!
    Let me take inventory of body parts that still work that might be sellable and I will get back with you!

I bring it up because the M2 and A3 have basically a quite similar form factor as well as drivers (at least size-wise) and I never had great expectations for the A3 working in this sized room. I achieved the stunning room lock that smodtactical described hearing at Mark's place. The chinese drums provided me with goosebumps and tremendous walloping dynamics. I've had several pairs of S3's in different rooms and never got that effect out of them at all. My room is open into other rooms so I get a lot of leakage and the A3 - was a stunning performer. I called the A3 a miracle speaker because it seems to defy the law of physics both for their stature as well as their driver size/complement. If the M2 does this with its further refinements (carbon monocoque) it most certainly could be the new "sweet spot" of the Magico line, a title held currently by S3Mk2. I'd love to see someone provide measurements on these speakers. Like we say at work - in God we trust - everyone else must bring data.
    Wow that sounds incredible. It seems like the A3 is probably the bargain and highest price to performance speaker magico has ever produced? I know it might be a bit silly but has anyone compared the A3 to the M2 ?

    You're probaly not going to see Magico use this phrase or visuals in any advertisements but you're point is well made.
    I'm happy too and love my newly made Magico mud! I also agree the crate's are a pain and would be nice if they could come apart for storage
    without the need to get the hammer and crowbar out.

    My A3's should arrive any day now, and I"ve not heard them since ordering them in December. As soon as Goodwin's here gets M2's (maybe they are there already - haven't asked in a while) I'm going to go and listen to them there. As I recall it's about a 9X price difference?? So "bargain A3's" may be hard to beat on the value scale??

    Definitely! S3 mk2 too.

    I hope you can have a good demo. The M2’s can shine in a good, not overly damp room. Ah hum...
