What's the new Maggie speaker like? Bigger than a 20.1??

The "Magic Show" had about 15 seats in a large dark room.
A backlit white scrim concealed the speaker's "secret identity".
Various types of music were played including: Choral, Jazz and a wicked drum solo - all at healhy SPLs.
The transducers revealed were about the size of a large magazine (12 X 16 X 2) with a "True Ribbon Tweeter" and the usual planar technology for the rest (could have been a ribbon also).
These mighty mites were driven by Bryston 28B monoblocks (1kw/channel).
There was also a matching Woofer module (not sub-woofer) the size of a large center-channel speaker placed on the floor.
Mr. Magnaplanar (sorry, I don't know his name) was polling for price guestimates (no firm price was given).
We were sworn to secrecy before departing.
The Teresonics were awesome speakers. I was considering buying teh floor samples but they all sold, including the back ups.
I enjoyed teh Show and will go again in the morning, but CES last year at the Pallatzo (or however it was spelled) just did not end. I want to go to that next year.
The vinyl selection at The SHOW was really nice. Listenign to Beck rigth now. I'll have to buy more in the morning.
Thank you Dweller for the nice words about our Neeper Speakers. Their is one correction that I would like to point out though. The Perfection One does not use the same drivers found in the Wilson Sophia. The Wilson uses a standard 6.5" Scanspeak driver with a 10" woofer to accomplish a 29Hz -3dB bass frequency response. The Perfection One uses two 5.25" custom scanspeak drivers with 6.5" magnets on the back of them giving the P1 a much higher impulse response. The Perfection One is able to reach 30Hz -3dB without the use of a larger subwoofer like the Sophia. Their is one drawback to this configuration though which is the P1's 87 dB sensitivity.
The amplification for our show setup consisted of a Sovereign Glory power amplifier (240W into 8 OHMS) and the Aaron preamplifier. You can find more information on both of these products at:
If you have any questions about the products we distribute please feel free to contact me anytime. I would be happy to help.

I had the pleasure of listening to the P1 at THE Show and couldn't believe the depth and breadth of the bass coming from these speakers. Top to bottom they are a jaw dropping speaker with museum quality finish. They will go to spl's that will make your ears bleed (but you will have a smile on your face) My partner was looking around the room for the subs, he couldn't believe that 2 5.25" drivers could make so much wonderful music. You have to see and listen to these speakers to believe it.
Thank you Zenblaster,
At the show we kept finding that the roof of the room was flexing to much. Drop in panels with good tight bass do not match. Currently we have the show pair traveling around to dealers for demonstration so if you would like please drop me an email and I will let you know when a pair is in your area.
