Magico A3 vs Magico S1 MK2


What do you guys think about either of them. I am currently trying to get rid of my BW 702 S2 and thinking about either of them. I have auditioned Magico A3 and liked it a lot. Had auditioned S1 MK2, a while back. I currently have Naim Unity Nova. I like the S1 Mk2 overall except for bass, which A3 does better. A3 is also good on high and meds, but little colored when compared to S1Mk2, which is bit neutral. Am liking both, but want to see if any of you guys have owned either of them and your overall experience.

I appreciate all input. The reason I am intrigued is because s1 mk2 is priced 18k and a3 12k. My dealer is giving a better deal on s1mk2 (less than a3).
Thanks guys. Just decided to buy Magico A3. Ordered it. Will be coming soon. 
I know they are not that sensitive: I have Naim Unity Nova. I am hopeful this will be sufficient. I had listened A3 with Esoteric f-05 and Lumin S1: Sounded amazing. What do you guys suggest for integrated amp for A3 ?
I am being a fan of Magicos. It has some "magic" to it in the sounds. By the way, ebm, why do you think this is bad time, aside from the virus pandemic. 
Indiana. I heard that new orders for Magicos take 6-8 weeks
Guys, somehow the dealer could not get magico A3. I am still on square one. S1mk2 is still ok board. My friends were craving about MA PL300ii and psb imagine t3. I am fan of magico. But before I pull trigger on S1mk2, want to make sure I am not making it prematurely before considering this. With current virus pandemic going on, have no way to audition these. Any thoughts if people have heard those or own those.
Update: Lots of things changed. I had ordered for Magico A3 and was told, not sure when they will be available and hence I had to restart my list. I heard Aerial acoustics 7T at one of my friends house and was blown away. I just bought these and am very glad I did it. Now I am running these speakers on naim unit Nova and happy with it. Will have to upgrade nova at some point. Thinking about Esoteric f-05 or Luxman 590 or pass labs Int 250 or Vitus rI-101 or ML 585.
