Magnepan Sweet Spot
OP if you like the MMGs then from what little I understand you will like the LRS more and the placement with one would work with the other?  I have tweeters outside and placed to make the room play the music sure there is one nicer spot but the ke... 
Choosing the right amplifier for the 2019 Magnepan .7 Speakers; Solid State or Tube
Bryston is always a good choice and those 7B3 monoblocks at 7500 with many years of warranty worth considering.  On the face of it I would opt for the 350 watts into 4 ohms I think 70 watts will be light but kind of depends on your taste?  They do... 
Magnepan Sweet Spot
Oh hell live a little buy a pair of LRS and close your blinds.  Can you move them out in the room?  If not maybe you don't want mags after all.  Either side of the TV sounds like you don't 
Magnepan 1.7 i - Amp suggestions
Oh and BTW the 4BSST and the BP20 and MPS1 I am using in my second system with these LRS is kick butt.  Rock and roll the bass is back but you gotta know how to place them and frankly I do.  I got the Mag fever and I know the cure. 
Magnepan 1.7 i - Amp suggestions
Bryston and Magnepan are like peanut butter and jelly.  OK corny but true.   A bit pricey for used but maybe just buy an old 4B from on here they are out of warranty then you are in your price range.  I would also buy that used BP26 and MPS2 becau... 
Broken hearted...magnepan and vandersteen
I'd be buying an extra pair or two of the LRS vs. spending 3x on the 1.7i which seems like frankly the absolute dog of the Magnepan line.  I own the LRS and can't imagine what 2200 bux would do for me vs. 715 to my door and not messing with the sn... 
Magnepan Sweet Spot
Dear OP,Putting your speakers on the far wall may not be the best plan.  If I saw your room I could probably place them properly along the long wall (pun intended).  That's how I have set the LRS up to great advantage and sound quality.  But, they... 
Solid-State PREAMP - Thoughts on Threshold / Krell / Bryston
Just buy that Bryston BP-26 with the MPS-2 power supply at under 1800 bucks.  You know, the one with the real warranty.  Tubes?  I used to think they sounded better than solid state but thousands of dollars later that is just nonsense.  That's my ... 
GIK Room Treatment Questions and Advice for Magnepans
I set up my Magnepan LRS in my LR/DR space today, and my mind is blown how well I did.  The carpet in front of the speakers that is thick seems to work in terms of not reflecting off the hardwood floors, while spreading out the sound in front.  I ... 
Bought a pair of Magnepan LRS. Should I buy a Schiit Vidar or Bryston 3B-ST?
Just hooked up my LRS to a 4BSST and a BP20 with MPS-1 and wow.  Rocking the house, the bass is there I mean not 20 hz obviously but enough to satisfy without the REL subs I was using before.  It's a big room, I'm using a "knock out" side with the... 
Step up from Nakamichi 582 tape deck?
This morning I finally took off those little cap thingies and sat down and perused the setting procedure.  It is a bit daunting but kind of fascinating too.  I felt like I needed some adjustment recently when source started sounding noticeably bet... 
Any Love For Bryston Here?
I have a 15 year old 4BSST, never missed a beat, BP-20 with 18 years age and 18 months remaining warranty.  How many manufacturers do a 20 year transferable warranty?  Got used 7BSST2 with BP26 MPS2 and BR2 for a smoking price on here.  10 years w...

DH Labs Air Matrix. 
Magnepans or...Martin Logan
These new LRS are barely broken in and sounding better day by day.  They do like tubes although I use the tube preamp with SS monoblocks and the two REL T5s.  This Nak ZX-9 shows me just how good not only the deck is but how good the LRS are capab... 
Which Nakamichi to choose?
This Willy Hermannized ZX-9 sounds better than the non Hermannized DR-2 I have but both sound nice.  The ZX-9, though, is in another realm.   A hard one to find but it's going to go up in price.  The DR-2 I paid 300 for I saw a parts machine for 3...
