SOLD: FS: Magnepan 1.7 speakers MAGGIES

Recommended Posts

Item: Magnepan 1.7 (relisted)
Location: Richmond, Victoria
Price:
Item Condition: very good 
Reason for selling: I'm selling because of limited space, certainly not SQ. These are easily the best speakers I've owned.  
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
Extra Info: You may have seen that i advertised these previously. They were sold but then withdrawn from sale when one speaker was damaged while moving them. To be safe I sent both to McLeans for inspection and repair. The bass ribbon/voice coils were replaced in both speakers and new socks were added. They now look and sound brilliant. I don't have space for them so they have to go. 

Audition invited for serious buyers.

I've heard these several times recently they are very good ++ and at 1/4 the cost of mine fantastic SQ value.

So I've been lead to believe.....

There is also some who believe that speakers should also be flat.... it has been noted in my experience that there may indeed be some merit in this theory...... ;)

 

In all seriousness though these speakers are actually very nice and definitely worth an audition.

Now understood. Thank you for explanation. :) Yes, I personally prefer neutral sound (may be different to flat) without particular emphasis on any part of frequency.

 

Heard great deal about Magnepan speakers and love to try some day. At present, can't afford it . :(

There definitely is a reason why you've heard a great deal about Magnepan speakers and why there is a lot of love for them.

You should have a listen to some one day !! :thumb:

 

Physically flat that is.... :D, though saying that they sound like they are a pretty well balanced speaker to my ears !!

Interesting story.

 

I was in Warrens factory when a pair of 1.7s were getting repaired. As is the case, Warren had them on to make sure they worked properly which obviously they were.

If I remember correctly he had an ME55 which was driving them. I am pretty sure that these were the ones he had repaired.

Sounded stunning. With so much room behind them to breathe in the factory, they were incredible. For the money that you are paying you get a whole lot of

speaker.

GLWS.

I had my pair of 1.7i  on the job after work cranked up because no one was home!

 

i was listening to Jennifer Warnes the hunter and the litle read coat.....

 

With the Sanders Electronics and an OPPO 105 in XLR......what a fulfilled satisfaction!    But it's just me, can't afford anything else!

Recently swapped standard fuses in my 1.7i for Hi-fi Tuning Supreme fuses, after procrastinating for 12 months. Now my only regret is not doing it sooner. Made an already nice sounding pair of speakers sound even nicer. $270 for 2 fuses sounds crazy but worth every dollar!

Others might disagree but I wouldnt describe them that way - I think I'd look elsewhere for low end kick arse balls.

Hello Friend
I have never heard, these speakers, are they sutiable, for rock, and do they have low end kick arse balls??
David
In a word " no" , but if you have a gutsy amp they do a respectable job. Pairing them with stereo subs help

While I may be a newbie to HiFi, I have heard these and they sounded absolutely wonderful. Furthermore buddyev is a great person to deal with.

      Item: SHERBOURN PA 2-250 POWER AMPLIFIER 
      Location:PORT MACQUARIE, NSW - MID NORTH COAST
      Price: $750
      Item Condition: VERY GOOD 8/10
      Reason for selling: NO LONGER REQUIRED - TOO MUCH GEAR
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, DEPOSIT
      Extra Info:
       
      Up for sale is my Sherbourn PA 2-250 power amplifier.
      For those who don't know, this was the predecessor of the very popular Emotiva XPA-2.
      2 x 250w @8 ohms, 2 x 500w @4 ohms
      XLR and balanced inputs
      Trigger inputs and outputs
      Huge torodial power supply
      Weighs in at 22kg
       
      I was using this amplifier with a set of magnepan mg12's I recently rebuilt the frames and crossovers for.
      I was previously using a Harmon Kardon citation 12 for the Maggies with no compliants, but after the recent
      modifications , the Maggies dug that much deeper into the bass region that the HK was having a hard time,
      and got quite a bit warmer than it normally did when a bit of Dire Straits was played......
       
      I found the Sherbourn had a very similar sonic signature to my lovely old HK, but boy could it dig lower without even a hint of breaking a sweat.
      So much so were the new crossovers, frames and amp working together that well that the lower register was at the point of being detrimental.
      I made the Maggies into a three way system, put the HK back into the system to cover the mid and top end, and run 2 x 12" sealed subs for the bottom end.
      And with that, the Sherbourn went back into the box.
       
      Would make a great home theatre front channel amplifier, stereo amplifier, or another Maggie owner wanting 500w x 2 @ 4ohms without breaking the budget ( or marriage ).
       
      Prefer local pick up as the weight is above some freight carriers limits, and once they know it's second hand audio gear, they won't cover for damage......
      been there and done it a few times in the past.......unless you're wanting to pay hundreds of dollars extra ( TNT won't cover for loss ??? only damage )
       
      My username on ebay is also rawcraftwood, so you can look on there for an indication of my feedback. I'm not a trader or seller of audio gear, I'm just like the rest of us,
      bitten by that darn upgradeitus bug......continually looking for that audio Nirvana.
      Fleabay is no longer what it used to be 5 years ago, too many crazy people......so I don't sell on there anymore. 
       
      I have a few other amplifiers to list over the coming weeks....same thing, am happy with the current setup/s and no need to change anymore.
      I can put the funds to other projects.
