You may want to consider the Tycus from Art of Sound. Very fast and detailed.

Your Maggies will sound better, for sure, with a sub. I shopped, listened, compared may subs and wound up with the Sunfire Architectural sub. Designed for two channel listening. Front firing woofer. It's a crying shame you don't hear about this sub, enough, on the 'gon. Fast, tight, great extension, small, and very powerful. A jazzman's delight. They have the Architectural Signature, too. 12" rather than 10" woofer. Can be found nicely discounted. Lists for $1400. I love mine. happy hunting. warren
I can second the REL Storm recommendation from Kinsekd. I use a REL Storm III and have been very pleased with the results. By the way, I run the MG 1.6 QR in full range and use the REL Storm III to augment from about 35hz and below. One great thing about the REL Storm III is that you can choose to run your main speakers in full range or restrict the low frequencies to the main speakers and ask the REL Storm III to handle all low frequencies.
i second (or third) the REL recommendation and want to add a few:
the rega vulcan sub (which is made by REL) will mate PERFECTLY as will the linn sizmik.
if price is no consideration, go with the sizmik. if so, look for a rel or vulcan. i had 1.6's for a while and used the vulcan. SEAMLESS transition.
Again...Rel and Sunfire...these are the only two subs I would consider if I had Mags...my buddy has the 1.6s with a Rel Storm...and like many have said...they mate very well...the Sunfire is a little more aggressive sounding...but very tight and musical...either way...u will have a killer system..good luck...
