The Clearaudio MAGIX2 Magnetischer Resonanzedämpfer are the result of many years research in most effective means of reducing any acoustic feedback to the minimum. An absolute unusual feature of this principle is that the MAGIX2 in operating state reaches an automatic self-shielding of the magnetic field.

 

With these deployed I was able to entirely eliminate any disturbances & feedback from a turntable arranged on a platform which was situated upon a suspended timber floor, even with large speakers in close proximity and high replay volumes.

They are equally beneficial with any type of audio components which can benefit from isolation and/or damping.

 

Dimensions: 111 mm x 105 mm

Each device weighs 2.2kg and is height adjustable.

 

For my front end & sa/cd player I elected to use a somewhat similar and also highly effective SAP Relaxa 3+ magnetic levitation isolation platform (see my other listed FS advert here on Stereonet for it).

 

To reach optimal resonance absorption it is necessary to coordinate the number of MAGIX2 relative to the weight of the component to be damped (and additionally the weight of an underlaying platform - if for example an acrylic plate or wooden board is also to be deployed under the component)

Weight bearing capacity: 16 pounds (8kg’s) each (take the weight of the component, and platform if used, which you intend to isolate, and divide by 4 to determine the number of Magix you will need).

 

From a sonic perspective, the Magix differ from other devices by what they don’t do. 

Most any isolation device imparts some sort of character of its own. That may be increased detail, more speed, a slight softening, added brightness, etc., etc. 

The Magix strips all those artifacts away, and leaves behind a sense of purity and air. 

Background silence is increased, subtle details are allowed to unfold rather than being forced out, and the music ebbs and flows with a naturalness that is alluring.

"So the CDP is levitated, but how does it sound? In a word, fantastic!

It's probably THE most effective isolation device around. It doesn't really change the sound that much, but what little it does matters so much to the music. It allows your equipment perform to it's fullest without exhorting it's own character, which by comparison, the Finite Element Ceraballs do so to a certain extent(if over used, that is!).

I can say that each musical instrument, vocal replayed via the system now has an added dimension to it. Like high hats has that brassiness to it. The piano seems more naturally real and violins have that little extra sheen to it's resonating body. Vocals have the extra body too. Best of all each and every instrument presented within the sound stage has that little bit of air around them, making them seemed free, un constricted."

 

User comments from both Stereonet members and from other forums

 

"I have a SAP Relaxa 3+ mag-lev platform. As well, I have 8 Clearaudio Magix mag-lev footers under the shelf my Yamaha GT 2000 sits upon.

All-up a substantial monetary outlay for these accessories. I would buy more of them also.

I have observed two different variables at work which determine how well these two not so different products perform.

The pylons/platform work optimally upon being loaded-down to close to the limit of what they can support. The other factor I have noted, is that the degree of compression for each mag-lev pylon should be consistant with the other pylons as much as possible.

I find the Magix to be very, very good under the turntable and the SAP 3+ to make a worthwhile contribution under the preamp."

      Item Condition: 8/10 Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition. Suburb or Town: NORTH MELBOURNE State: VIC Payment Method: EFT or Cash on pick-up preferred Reason for selling: Upgraded Further information:
       
      I bought these amps off the original owner approximately two years ago. I thought they were a revelation compared to what I was using before Prima Luna. And I was also able to see why a fairly modestly priced pair of amps would get such a high recommendation in the Stereophile Recommended components reviews.
       
      In fact these were an upgrade on a Stereo Prologue Premium I was running (and sold when I bought these). One major difference from the upgrade was that instead of running KT88s and then trying KT120s and KT150s on the stereo amp to get enough power, I was able to run these on EL34 tubes and get both a more powerful, yet sweeter sound at the same time (although you can run KTs if you prefer).
       
      I did roll out the original Prima Luna EL34s and replace them with 2 lots of 4 Platinum Matched Tung-Sol tubes which (to my ears) gave an even better sound - the original tubes are provided as well, of course. I don't have a tube tester but I have had no problem with them and I'm guessing they have probably run about 1,000 hours.
       
      In terms of the smaller 12AU7 tubes, I am running Genalex Gold Lion ECC83s, again, to my ears, a significant upgrade on the original tubes.
       
      I replaced these about 6 months ago with a much higher up the tree Pass Labs XA30.8 Class A amp which also offers a sweet, tube-like sound. In that regard it is not that much different, but being solid-state is a possibly a fraction more balanced throughout the whole spectrum (swapping over was definitely not economically rational).
       
      One final note. The previous owner added the mirrors that sit behind the tubes as a "blingy" upgrade. It is not really my style to change away from original, but actually it doesn't look too bad, and so I never took them off - but I think you could easily do so if you prefer.
       
      In terms of a demo, I have one restriction which is that the only pair of speakers I have in the house is an Active pair, meaning I can't easily demonstrate these. If you can bring your own speakers, I can hook them up so you can listen to them in situ. 
         
      With the equivalent new pair costing $8k, I think these are a great way to get into tubes in a hassle-free way, with the auto-biasing etc making these no harder to run than solid state amps.
