Magico owners S1Mk 2
@4425 I owned several Magicos over the years (not the S1). I did own the 2-way Mini for several years, ’chesty’ does not come to mind when experiencing any of them.

I would take erik_squires comments with a BIG grain of salt. It has been proven a few times already that his imagination works overtime.I have my doubt if he has ever hard a Magico.  
High Frequency Oscillation hurt resistors in Magico A5 crossovers
@ricred1  Newton's third law : For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. My comment was a reaction to a silly remark involving your speaker. Didn't see you complain then 😶

@havocmanYou should have bought the monitor audioThe monitor audio plastic tweeter diaphragm would melt like a candle, LOL  
High Frequency Oscillation hurt resistors in Magico A5 crossovers
How about a quick Google search on what is ’high-frequency oscillation’ in audio (Parasitic oscillation). It’s straightforward, real, and distractive. If you are using a PC as a source, you never know what it is sending out, best to turn-off the a... 
Mágico M6 vs Big Wilson speakers
It’s not just about ’deadness,’ that’s easy. A loudspeaker enclosure also needs to be stiff. That is where the Aluminum comes into play (that is why the top of the line Rockport is made out of Aluminum as well). Magico does a reasonably good job a... 
Mágico M6 vs Big Wilson speakers
@mtdining You forgot the 3rd fact, which is actually the first one; you have no idea what you’re talking about, yet you keep at it 🙄 
Rockport Atria II or Magico A5
Congratulations on your new speakers. Both the S1 and the Atria have a bigger midrange driver (more like midbass in the S1), which means not nearly as wide dispersion as the 5” midrange in the A5. I am surprised you found the off-axis response lac... 
Rockport Atria II or Magico A5
@cantorgale The A5 are indeed incredible, not just for their price, but at any price. However, you should hear them yourself. As you can see, people here consistently "reconstruct” false memories. I wouldn’t have much trust in any hearsay comments.

@gpgr4blu Would love to hear a Q7 vs. similarly priced Raidho, may I ask where such a dealer reside?  
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
@techno__dude +1The Wilson way. LOL@ kren0006The reason Wilson stays longer is the pursuit of the so called “promised” good sound if the setup is right. It takes some time to run through all options available and then realize, there is no such thi...

You excite the breakup regardless of SPL, it is part of the driver ’sound’ (Sure, graininess will be louder just like the rest of the sound as you pump the volume up).  
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
@viber6That is not how it works. Once the breakup frqs are excited, the entire tweeter goes into a convulsion. That is why you want the breakup frq to be as high as possible. Like many metal domes, the Focal tweeter is coarse sounding due to too l...

Sure, will go with that...Heard the Grand Utopia EM with the big Naim amp. Also, a good friend has the Scala. All using the same tweeter as your Stella, I believe.
