Magnepan 3.7's versus 20.1's?
This is an interesting discussion to which I would like to ask a question. When is a room big enough for 3.7's?I upgraded to 1.7's from 1.2's and heard a world of improvement. Due to room size and physical set up, I do not think that I am getting ... 
magepan 1.6's with mac ma6500 integrated
I ran Maggie 1.7's with a MA6300 at 160wpc/4 ohms. It was okay but I felt that I was missing something. I then moved up to a Krell 300Si Integrated at 300 wpc/4ohms. This was a big improvement. Much more detail and resolution. Better bass.I am now... 
Best Amp for Magnepan 1.7?
It would seem that more power would help if the amps are shutting down after 30 minutes. I had the same problem with a Krell S300i integrated at 300 wpc/4 ohms. More power will open up the Maggies and give the low end a boost. 
Best Amp for Magnepan 1.7?
Sorry Magfan,I meant to say that the W4S person with whom I spoke insinuated that they were considering pairing their products with Maggies to help sell their W4S products.Your comment about running an amp within its limits is right on. My persona... 
Best Amp for Magnepan 1.7?
Magfan, the insinuation was about what speakers to use when displaying amps at shows. Just my take. 
Opinions on Wyred 4 Sound ICE amps
I have about 25 hours on the W4S amp/preamp combo and they are definitely warmer sounding than my Krell integrated.Still hearing some syllibance on the sss's (like Donna Krell's "Look of Love") but I expect that will get better with time. Played J... 
Opinions on Wyred 4 Sound ICE amps
Thanks for the clarification. I probably should have been able to figure that one out!The W4S folks suggest that I try their interconnects as they are designed for their components. Gets to the old saw - listen and decide if you can hear it. 
Best Amp for Magnepan 1.7?
I have traded in my Maggie 1.2's and now run 1.7's with Wyred4Sound SX 1000 amp and STP SE preamp.Check it out before you spend the really big bucks, you just might be surprised. According to the folks at W4S they are going to be listening to a cu... 
Magnepan 1.7 too bright, HELP
So if I am following this correctly, the 1 ohm resistor took away more energy going to the speaker which reduced the sound compared to the .327 ohm resistor which took away less energy and kept more to produce the sound at the speaker.Do I have th...

Rolling Stone top 100 Guitarists - Howe/Van Halen
Macdadtexas,Saw this old post.I agree that the Yes album is wonderful... also agree that Eric Clapton is not that great - the Yardbirds were much better with Beck. Interesting that no one mentioned Les Paul in the posts. 
Class D amps,bang for your buck ones
I doubt that I will ever change out the W4S as it is at the top limit of my budget for an amp and preamp. The wife is somewhat understanding but I think that I have about run out of rope on that score. 
Room Treatments for Maggies
Johnnyr,I am a novice. Please explain what the resistor does and how it impacts the sound. What happens if you change to one with a "higher value". With a "Lower value".Currently using stock setup from Magnapan.

MacDadTexas, You have 3.6's correct?Outlaws of Love - I have never heard that album - first by the Police, right?
