I agree, I never liked Ayre. On anything! 
Magico vs the world
https://www.soundstageglobal.com/index.php/product-debuts/magico-a3-december-2017/739-magico-a3-loudspeaker-the-soundVery rarely a reviewer will comment on two speakers like that. The mid-bass on the Focal is elevated, the tweeters are raspy, an... 
Magico vs the world
@ smodtactica Relaxed can be just as fatiguing as aggressive and bright. I just don’t like the sound of ceramic drivers; to my ears they have an unpleasant coloration; once you spot it, it never goes away. As I said in my posts, I have the A3... 
Magico vs the world
The Tidal are beautiful loudspeakers, but for me, just like all other speakers with ceramic drivers, are ultimately fatiguing. I spend hours in front of a system mastering recordings, and what may sound impressive at a demo can become extremely un... 
Magico vs the world
Basically a repeat of my first posting, almost 2 years ago:I am a professional musician, and I do a lot of recording, mainly chamber, and small ensemble. I need a tool to hear my work, but as an audiophile, albeit a modest one, I also wanted to ha...

@ smodtactical Are you paid by AG to generate traffic? Anyone who spent any time here, on AG, will know that for every Magico fan, there are 10 detractors, so where is this imaginary “everywhere” of yours is? 
DMS 600 Owner review
I listen extensively to the Persona before I bought the Magico A3 (and the deal on the Persona was much better). The Persona were  bright and after the initial wow, quite fatiguing ( also a bit of a grainy highs). Some people like that, you should... 
Sonus Faber Electa Amator III with Hegel at RMAF
@daveyf  Some people on AG heard the A3 being “dark”. Some heard it bright and forward, shouldn’t you listen to it on the Hegel first before you speculate?I own it. It is neither dark nor forward and does sound very natural on the Hegel (https://... 
Y No YG ?
I listen to the Revel many times, impressive at first, fatiguing shortly after, and hardly listenable on chamber music (I am a professional musician - violins are an instrument too ;)).   
Y No YG ?
@smodtactical Wow Magico A3 better than Carmel?  And better then the Vivid Giya G4: https://www.soundstageultra.com/index.php/equipment-menu/899-magico-a3-loudspeakers?fbclid=IwAR3Z4VUdAogP1YID6mjJ51bGjAClGCBMP7bxP90tYhiNDgez6_wwEeDOjSI#most-r... 
Persona 9h vs S3 mk 2
@audiotroy Sciencecop what is your point here? audiotroy  It is you who typically jump to any conversation involving Magico, or any other product you don’t sell, and quick to trash it (yea, good speakers but boring, blah blah). When someone puts... 
Persona 9h vs S3 mk 2
I audition the Wilson Sabrina extensively when searching for new speakers; they made my final list (Here in Germany the same distributor carry Wilson, Paradigm, and Magico). Ultimately I choose the Magico A3, which is a lot more transparent, coher... 
Persona 9h vs S3 mk 2
It's not that simple. This active bass is driven by a DSP, class D amp, set up. That means that your bass signal is digitized (and it is playing into the midrange, with a delayed signal). It introduces all sort of audible issues. To my ears, britt... 
The best speaker for a small room...at any price point.
’Ringing’ dome?Magico new tweeters definitely don’t ring, not in sound and not in measurements. In fact most “soft” domes will harden much faster, and will sound quite nasty at high SPL. The M2 highs were sublime in Munich.  
Anyone hear Vivid Audio Speakers? Considering Vivid Giya G1 Series 2 from Magico S5 MKII
