|Recently I stepped down from Martin Logan Summit Xs to Magnepan 1.7s. Was it a step down? Yes. Less of everything from the Xs (except warmth), but not bad and actually pretty good.|
I am running the 1.7s with a Rogue Audio Athena (tube) preamp with upgraded Mundorf Silver Oil Capacitors and Wyred 4 Sound SX-1000 (class d) monoblocks. A Lexicon RT-20 Universal Disk player is my primary source. I also use a Velodyne SPL-1200 sub.
I do not see a lot of these types of set ups. Actually, most "audiophiles" that I encounter frown on the entire system. To each their own. I love it. Open and clean with lots of seperation and detail. And incredibly smooth and warm. Anyone else out there with a similar set up?
Any tweeks for the 1.7s? I am thinking of changing the fuses and jumpers.
