All New Magico A5 Loudspeakers // Biggest "BANG" For Your BUCK On The Market ?!
@daveyf Last I have checked a "fanboy" is a derogatory term. You have used it twice, without any real provocation, in your four posts, and on a Magico thread, where it is only reasonable to find Magico enthusiasts. Is that how you ended up barred ...

So a 300W Stereo Boulder was fine, but a 600W Mono Bryston is not?Perhaps what you are trying to say is that at a 1/4 price of the Boulder, the Bryston, is not as good?Try the Pass INT-250, see what you think.

@daveyf Tell us, which Magico impressed you?

@daveyf  My hearing or not hearing this speaker changes nothing about how it acts with the partnering amp... I think it does. These are just opinions. Other people, including myself, say that you don't need a "huge monster amp to drive it," but y...

@daveyf We are talking about the A5 here, a speaker you apparently know nothing about, yet you already assume it needs a "huge monster amp to drive it". I have heard the A5 with Octave tube integrated amplifier; it is 120W per channel, it was one ...

@daveyf Did you hear the A5?

@erik_squires So Erik, did you actually hear the A5??

I run my A3, which is less efficient than the A5 with Pass INT-250. That is a 250 watt amp. No problem. 
Best 40 to 50k used speakers
+1The A5 made a much more expensive Wilson sound like a boombox.Even the dealer that was trying hard to sell the Wilson to me had to agree.   
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
Like I said, it is not a pissing match, and I am glad you like what you have. Hopefully will see other speakers in the mix (Not necessarily a Magico 😉 ).

Not a pissing match, there are plenty of videos on line, one can make his own judgment. The Alexia to me sound like a mid-fi, maybe the A5 in your set up will sound even worse, but I doubt it ;)   
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
If we want to be a bit more critical, one have to admit that at least on the videos, the Alexia sound plain and boomy, more like a 6K loudspeakers, not 60K.

You can, of course, believe what you want, but the fact is that these are extraordinary at any price.

A loudspeaker is not a musical instrument 😒

I auditioned the A5 last week, it is mind-blowing good. The dealer had a very well-known ~50K€ speakers on demo he was trying to sell me at a “loss”. He eventually had to agree that the A5 blows it away, at half the price. I now have to figure out...
