Received your Magnepan 30.7’s Yet
Curious,  has anyone actually bought and received a pair of 30.7’s yet?  Do you know anyone that has?

that brings up an interesting question; what 'sound' actually comes out of the back side of Magnepan's?  Is it an Exact duplicate of the sound waves that are emitted from the front?If the sound from the back of the Maggies is 'not good' then why w...

Thank you Professors for the lesson in proper English and the correct use of the apostrophe.    Still, 30.7’s just looks so much better and is easier to read... Well, it appears that we have no new 30.7s owners that follow Audiogon.Now my curiosit...

The Bryston is great with Maggie’s for sure.  Better dynamics and bass overall than tubes, but the tube Carvers would give you a bit more midrange ‘magic’.  It’s a personal choice.  You can’t go wrong with the Bryston though, it’s an excellent match.

Elizabeth, congratulations on getting the 20.7’s!  Aren’t they awesome!  As you said, they are definitely a major step up from the 3.6’s.  I’m curious what amps you’re using? I tried many, many amps on my 20.7’s before I found the tubed Carver 305...

Agreed; what we want is to hear from someone, anyone, that has actually purchased a set of 30.7’s and that has set them up in their listening room.Is there Anybody Out there???

It’s my understanding that the sound coming out of the Maggie panels, front and back is exactly the same; only they are in opposite phase.i’ve tried Absorption and did not like the result; just deadens everything especially the top end.The diffuso...

I agree, you don’t want diffusion too close to your seating position  or speakers because comb filtering can become an issue.  From what little I understand that effect is partially dependent upon the effective frequency range of the diffusion pan... 
The big DAC decision
Buy a MSB Analog DAC.  Recently MSB has discontinued the Analog DAC so you may have to pick up a used one.  I have heard, auditioned, and researched many DACs in the last five or six years and I haven’t found one that plays music as “beautifully” ...

Exactly; the purpose of this discussion is to hear from Actual Owners of the 30.7’s.  New owners, please give us your impressions of the 30.7’s!

Al, thanks for that analysis.  It’s difficult enough to pay that much coin for a ‘statement’ tube amp, then spend thousands over the next ten years re-tubing it.  But, if I understand your comments the tube replacement rate for this amp would most... 
The Magnificent Magnepan 30.7 speakers....wait, I don’t like planars!
It’s pretty much unanimous, the 21 demos of the 30.7’s at various dealers around the country have been a mixed bag.  It’s a fact that many if not most dealer showrooms are mediocre at best, and some are downright terrible.  And it’s also true that...
