    Magneplanar Speaker Owners Thread

    I know an owner who had to replace tweeters on Magico's twice. No brand is immune to failures even if perhaps it was misuse.
  2. Not all old .....at least I think I am still classed as middle aged......Tidal certainly make some lovely Engineered speakers a must to audition if looking at this level . Whether you like them or not well that's depends on your tastes. The below is a measurement from a speaker designed well over 20 years ago and measured by Stereophile. Makes you wonder if we really have progressed with speakers at all or as mentioned perhaps measurements else where are more important. Or maybe a ruler flat speaker response is not ideal for most? Certainly some food for thought but as always the best method is listen and make your own mind up if looking to hand over the hard earned.

    4 Tower Speaker Systems

    Genesis and Acapella I have heard.I have not heard the 4 box Tidal yet. The Wamm certainly is imposing and has a lot of drivers/crossovers. I really doubt I will ever get to hear it with only 70 being built maybe one day.....certainly take some impressive amplification to drive it properly.

    4 Tower Speaker Systems

    Me too deep nooooo......... what gives you that idea? But in all seriousness if I had bought another passive single box Flagship floor stander I would have sold it by now a few times over......While the 4 tower system is complex the rewards of getting it right far outweighs its down sides. Out of curiosity which 4 tower setups have you heard?
  5. Looking for other 4 tower speaker system owners to share experiences. Having come from a traditional large floor standing speaker the learning curve has been steep for myself. I have found a setup that I am extremely happy with but the journey has been quite challenging due to the many variables associated with a 4 tower system. I appreciate there are many different types, manufacturer's and what will work in one room may differ but I expect a lot of the pitfalls and tips to be similar .A long shot as not too sure how many SNA members have experience with 4 tower speakers but any input appreciated.
  6. SS 1000 watt Class AB mono's on the Woofer Towers, SS 200 watt Class A mono's on the Ribbon towers. Both fed Direct by SS DAC with mono power supplies. No pre or valves required.

    My System this morning

    Its versatility is exceptional and it is leaps and bounds ahead of the previous UMT V I was running in my system. While still early stages I am extremely happy with its performance and matching with the Select Dac. The most content I have ever been with my current setup which says a lot looking back at the equipment that has passed through my system and equipment I have heard.
  10. I owned dCS Vivaldi 2 full stack and loved it ,truly one of the best digital systems! I compared Vivaldi 2 vs MSB Select 2 in my own system and now I do not own dCS Vivaldi 2. Whatever they are doing it works. Select technology has trickled down the MSB line to make it more affordable and a must audition for those looking to see how good digital can sound. +1 on above........head to SGR or contact Audiofidelity ....well worth it.
