Trickle down tech of Maggies 20.1 to rest of line?
The big Maggies have won the "Product of the Year" from Absolute Sound. I wonder if the newly refined technology will/is being added to the rest of the Maggie lineup... so we all can enjoy! Any insider info???
Recently, I auditioned the 20.1s at Lyric hi-fi in NYC. On a first impression, there were no apparent compromises in resolution. In fact, I found the 20.1s a notch better than the 3.6 and 3.5 in terms of resolution and transparency.
Currently, I am using modified 3.5s, biamped with a Marchand 126s x-over (with VT100 MKII driving the mid/treble section and Kenwood L07M driving the bass). I will be upgrading to the 20.1s in September. Gmorris (System | Reviews | Threads | Answers | This Thread)
I don't think I will be modifying the 20.1 for a while. They were very impressive driven by a pair of ARC VTM200 with LS25 MKII ( I own the LS25 MKI). The transient speed in the midbass and midrange was impressive. I will be biamping using the same gear as I am using for the 3.5s. Thus, it will not be necesary to upgrade the external x-over. Maybe, later on I will upgrade the internal caps and coils and replace the wiring. Gmorris (System | Reviews | Threads | Answers | This Thread)
