    Cool. And they'll be worth about 10% more next week!

    p.s. you should be holding-fire on the S7 moniker pic until you take delivery!

    Yes..i got a bit ahead of myself so I changed it as you suggested. The next avatar will be a pic of mine.
    I forgot about the price increase in April. Put my order in just in the nick of time.

    congratulations Gene

    Fantastic speaker

    When mine arrived , my dealer said lets plug them in no serious listening for a week

    Needless to say , I spent the next 3 hrs listening closely

    That said give them time

    When I first got my S3 mk1, I initially used Pass XA30.8 to drive them (I believe XA30.8 is the same as the amp section of INT-60). Meter rarely moved and didnít feel they were underpowered in any way. Then, out of curiosity I tried Gryphon Diablo 300 (300w 8ohm, 600w 4ohm) and thereís whole another level of dynamics I didnít know before. YMMV as always.

    What else did you consider before deciding on S7? M3 didn't interest you?

    From what I had learned I pretty much had my heart set on the S7 from the beginning ,but did give serious consideration to the newer offerings from Sonus faber.
    After the demo, I was satisfied I had made the right decision.
    As far as the M3?...I'll refer you to my answer in post #55.

    Re: From Sonus faber to Magico

    This hobby is so taste dependent with no absolutes. My S3Mk2’s sound fabulous with my Vac 200iq with 100 watts per channel which replaced an awesome Diablo-300 in my system.
    To my ears tubes are little more musical. YMMV.
    Congrats on your big daddy S series.......they are amongst the top of the food chain.

    Re: From Sonus faber to Magico

    Well, after a one day delay due to the weather, the S7's are finally in and making beautiful music.
    You really have to see the finish in person to fully appreciate how gorgeous they are. Glad i went with the red.
    I'm told they will need 200-400hrs to full cook. I'm in no hurry.

    BTW... The Accuphase A-75 (which i was told would not be a good match,by some) is just fine with the load.
    Plays just as loud ,full and musical as i would want.
