    I don't know if anyone posted this previously? But the S5 mk2 earned a Class A rating in Stereophile's Recommended Components 2017 alongside other SOTA speakers such as the Marten Coltrane 3, Vandersteen Model 7 Mk2 & YG Sonja 1.3. Congratulations to Alon and Magico for this well deserved recognition .

    I need to send the tax man a boatload of money, but not as much as I was scared would be needed. Time to order some SPODs.

    Ah, did they. So you mean now Stereophile finally woke up....

    It's funny, I've heard that there were people who have been knowing already for a while that Magico make good speakers.

    Yeah a little surprising considering the caliber of this system. My guess is the Dealer didn't have any S Pods on stock before the show deadline. They are certainly the icing on the cake to complete these speakers. As a side note, I'm surprised they went with a DCS front end. My choice would have been the Soulution 746+ for synergy, or Vitus MP-T201/MP-D201.
