New Magico A1 Bookshelf Speakers!
Was it the S1, or the S1 Mk2? Big difference. Also, to the unsuspected ear, the AMT tweeter will always win on a/b testing. Try long terms listening, and the craze of changing amps/cables etc. start in the hope of taming the highs (plastic colorat...

@verdanaudio You want ultimate, give the Kaiser Chiara’s a listen And what makes these the "ultimate"? Is it the price? Or the look??Not as good as drivers ( Scan-Speak, paper cone mundane woofers, and an AMT shrilling tweeter), passive radiator... 
Persona 9h vs S3 mk 2
@prof +1Although I typically disagree with you, I have to say that AG forum has become AT forum. The scary part is that some people are falling for that. I am not sure why AG is putting up with that. 
S3 Mark II vs Scala Utopia V2
@smodtacticalPerhaps you missed the memo, but the word on the street is that Audiodoc “special” love for Magico is due to the fact he could not get the line way back when he opened up (it was his favorite when he worked for SBS in NY - I was Andy’...

@mijostynDo you even understand what a 6db XO is? How about breakup modes? The geniuses you are, you surly understand the difference between a 6db electrical XO (simple - but unless the frq. response of the driver is flat, which is not in this cas...

@mijostyn Now for those of you that want the ultimate point source speaker that will go loud enough to bust your eardrums you get four Accuton C168-6-490 midrange drivers and two C30-6-024 tweeters for a total price of $5000.00. Make a simple 6 dB...
