Hi - I have heard the Mini2 in a very good setup and almost bought them but didn’t pull the trigger. First I think they look superb, even though they’re fairly hefty and take as much space as a good size floorstander. The design and build quality are first rate.
Soundwise, they have real qualities notably refinement and purity, without being perhaps as ruthlessly revealing as the subsequent Q series (the Q1 can be extraordinary). However, to my ears, they sounded too controlled to let music really flow (a consistent magico issue IMO), and despite being driven by serious amplification, sounded almost underpowered. They sure didn’t rock or let them hair down at all. On classical chamber music they might be fantastic but my musical diet is richer than that. If you like the warmth of your SF, I’d say exercise caution and perhaps consider other brands than Magico. How about a used pair of SF Extrema...?!
@derekw14 Thanks for your response... agree about the warmth signature and will listen to the Magico with that in mind Your recommendtion is another hard to find legend that needs a lot of juice to shine :)。 I heard the Extrema sometime back and it is a great speaker that does not show up often
