FS: Magneplanar MG 20.7 Loudspeakers.

Recommended Posts

Item:  Magneplanar 20.7 Loudspeakers 
Location:  Melbourne
Price:   $13,500 $12,000
Item Condition:  Excellent
Reason for selling:  Upgraded
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
Extra Info:

 

Purchased from Bill McLean in August 2015.

 

The price includes:

 

1 pair sand filled Mye Stands. (Value $1000)

4 Synergistic Research speaker jumpers (Value $400).  Do not use the metal clips which come with the speakers, the sound is crap with those.

1 pair Synergistic Research Red fuses.  (value $200).

1 pair Telos fuses. (Value $380?  I can't remember the exact price but it is top of the line Telos fuse and equivalent of SR Black fuse.) 

The fuses are essential to get best performance.

 

Many have heard these speakers at my GTGs.  You will not find a better speaker package at anywhere near this price. 

 

I hereby tender my resignation from the Flat Panel Society.  

 

I will be joining the Horny Brigade.

 

Too much is said about these speakers needing a large room to sound best.  That could be said about many speakers.  These speakers will sound good in medium to large rooms.  Some rooms are better than others.  A good medium room will be better than a large bad room.  It's not about size, it's about set up.

Perfect placement of the rocket too if you know what I mean. :winky:

It was hard to focus on the speakers. I was getting distracted for some reason. The lava lamp is strategically placed. GLWS.

Much less than your budget,  @genkifd  :)

 

With all the fruit salad you could want.

He would need to halve that price first. Insanely over priced.

 

At least the speakers are big enough to fashion him a casket. He will buried with them at that price.

Different speakers have different resale values.  I discussed value with Bill McLean before putting up for sale.  Those speakers are probably rubbish, which is why they have low resale values.  Good products hold their value.

Sorry mate I wasn't referring to your speakers. My comments were regarding the JBL speakers linked above.

No worries.  I thought the posts relating to those speakers were suggesting my price was too much compared to the JBL.  I don't overprice my gear.  I've had to put up with a lot of crap on my Koetsu posting.

I have no idea what the value of the jbl's are.

Peter I think the price of your panel's is a very good price ,please don't read between the lines.

I think jbl's would be  great because of the large space you have.

I have been to your place with @djb and @ghost4man and felt that large speakers would be a better

choice to fill the room .

      Price: $3900 Item Condition: Used 9.5/10 Shipping Options: Pickup is available,Audition is not available, but in-person pickup can be arranged with limited personal contact Suburb or Town: Morley State: Western Australia Payment Method: Cash, direct deposit Reason for selling: Upgraded to Revel F208 Item:  Falcon Studio 30 floorstanding speakers ( walnut finish) 
      Location: Perth
      Price:  $4300 ono  + postage
      Item Condition: 9,9- no marks, scratches , spotless
      Reason for selling: Revel F208 
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash,, COD Only
      Extra Info: 
       
      I bought these in April 2019 , intrigued by the design and the reviews (below) and also through much discussion with Andy at Audiofix over their suitability in my room. in short they work fine in my room and with their down firing port , makes for a lot of versatility in room positioning.  Ultimately I enjoyed their sound enough to sell my Dynaudio confidence 5. 
       
      but as always in this great game, a recent read up and current home demo of Revel F208 have made me decide to purchase them as hopefully an “ end game” speaker. Well that’s the plan 😎
       
      these present as new , out of the boxes and set up -   No marks at all. So like new with a discount price.
       
      sounds wise, I play a wide variety of music through them and found them to be detailed and balanced, never becoming over bright  the high and mids in particular are impressive. Female vocals in particular sound very nice. The bass is fast and well defined - certainly not plodding.  These could be an ideal speakers for someone liking the Proac, Spendor or Sonus Fabre sound. 
       
      Build quality is spot on, weight in at 35kg each, with 25mm cabinets made in Italy and the heavy and solid plinths.  At a pinch they do look a bit like mid period Sonus  Faber, but certainly they look even more impressive in the flesh. With their design and slimline dimensions, could be a alternative to a similar priced standmount? 
       
      I have the boxes (3) and packaging so transport/courier isn’t an issue. Happy demo at home to interested parties
       
      boxes are 115cm long x 33cm wide and 45cm deep weight would be about 40 kgs per box.
       
      interesting fact - Falcon are distributed the USA by Mofi electronics.
