I used to own maggies, and I think that there is a couple of things to consider: 1) All speakers can take some time to "break in". Some as many as 500 hours. The Maggies I owned took at least 100hrs to sound the way that I heard them at the dealer. 2) I feel any system will take at least 2 weeks to become "normalized", after first being connected. 3) The maggies I owned took at least 1 hour to "warm up" after 1 & 2 were over. 4) Planar speakers are by far the most difficult to focus properly. They are also very particular about room size, what's between them, and how far they are from the walls. Remember, you are dealing with the alignment of two focal patterns rather than one, so it may take some time to get them right. 5) Mids and treble sometimes are presented differently as compared to a conventional tweeter. Good luck with getting them right -- they are amazing speakers when properly focused.
