Careful around the tweeter on those speakers or you'll get a nice puncture wound.

Thanks. I'd like to see more posts on Audiogon about new truly innovative products, like any that might have been discovered at shows like CES. Feed me more! These look like they might try to compete with smaller Dynaudio Xeos? I'd like to see more of technology similr to this applied to larger more full range speakers as well. How much further can build quality alone push the edge in a way that matters for many? My preferred speakers were innovative 30 or 40 years ago. Now, they are also highly refined and surprisingly still a quite unique design. GOod things stick around. WHere will Magico be in 10 years?
Yes, lots of good sounding speakers for $2500. Wireless + software based configuration approach, whatever in the end that buys you, would seem to be the innovation. Maybe just a fancy equalizer, but lots possible with digital. Bundling that in with a speaker system is pretty innovative. A good value? We'll have to see about that.
Visit their website and you will know what I am talking about. It is factory direct only for a good reason. And the factory is ScanSpeak!
I really don't see any other speaker at that price that has such a feature set.
And the digital filter option? That is the first I have heard of as an option for a DSP loudspeaker.
I am trying to figure out where I am going to fit them into my life now - too many speakers as of now already.
Not too many details about the connectivity of the speakers on the site though so I am going to hold off my pre-order until it is all sorted out.
I wish.... lol
Not in the audio business at all. I am a closet audiophile. Ever heard of a fashionista/ artist into audio? This hobby of mine alienates people.
The speakers are made by Scan Speak and is factory direct only thus the crazy low price. I mean I can't imagine any active speakers like this offered below $5000 let alone the additional DSP + wireless and balanced dacs. Although the main driver seems a little small at 5.5" for the speakers to be used for big rooms or far field though. I would expect it to be a great pair of speakers for a secondary system or systems.
just found out about these guys a couple of days ago. Very intriguing, the drivers used are top notch scan speaks. If the digital crossovers/amps are decent, this should be an incredible speaker at what can only be called a bargain price. Not sure about the cabinet quality, but the internal parts alone look like they could form the basis of a ground up custom built aluminum enclosure that would be awesome. Wish their website had more details/info/pictures....
