    Re: Magnepan owners, please tell me what you have and amplifier(s) you use ...

    I have two systems using Maggie’s. My main system uses the Maggie 1.7i with the Maggie bass panel -DWM. I bi amped the system - a new Krell K300i integrated amp push the 1.7i and a Son of Ampzilla push the DWM panel. My second system uses my old Maggie 1.6qr - but they are now modified by PETER GUN. I push them with a Krell S550i. Both systems are fed via my LUMIN D1 streaming Tidal HiFi with MQA. Very happy with the sound quality.

    Ran my Maggies with Talk Electronics monoblocks(not enough current), tested Bryston 4B(ok), Magtech monoblocks excellent match but some hiss, currently using PS Audio BHK 300 monoblocks. Superb!

    There are a few Magnepan dealers that speak highly of the Hegel H90 as the killer combo for the LRS.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Hegel/Magnepan combo is very high on my list. I think I know who you are referring to and I love their enthusiasm. It’s a Canadian dealer, I think.

    Joe,

    I am using MG3.7 with conrad-johnson. This is my favorite combo. I have used Modwright, Electrocompaniet, Pass, McIntosh, Parasound, W4S and BAT with Maggies. CJ is what I like most

    Hi Jim,

    CJ and Maggie is an excellent combo. A friend here, Ray in NJ, has 20.7 and ART300s. I am sure the CJ/Maggie combo is awesome.

    Classe M600 worked perfect for 20.7s.

    Joe, what mods are you considering doing to the LRS? I heard great things about the speakers but haven't read anything about the mods. Thanks.
