    Re: Magico or Avantgarde ?

    For me is Avantgarde Duo all the way. Yes I am biased as being an owner. The Magico is super nice speakers and very powerful sounds but Avantgarde will stop you upgrade bug completely. Thatís what I found as most Avantgarde owners do. While others are keep upgrading to newer models nothing wrong with it but Iím so happy that Iím settled now

    Hard to argue against with this. Less fun for us though since you are settled now. Loved reading your system evolution over the years.

    LMAO. You know him too well.

    Itís ok not to be ďdoneĒ. Itís about the journey more than the destination.

    If I was ďdoneĒ when I first said I was done, I would be recapping my Carver amps and making maintenance repairs on my 801Fís.

    Re: Magico or Avantgarde ?

    I tend to agree with some of the other people here. Maybe 2.5m is not enough perhaps. My listening chair is anout 2.5m from my speakers. When I some serious listening I move my chair back for about 1 meter. Not a huge fan of Avantgarde speakers. If you are European maybe you can consider Stenheim, I heard these with smaller amps and they sounded great. Or Blumenhofer and Blumenhofer Clasic (BHC).

    Sorry but I can’t get past the looks of your two suggestions to want to listen to them.

    There again I don’t like the IKEA look .

    But you are looking at the plastic megaphones of Avantgarde
