Its been 2 weeks now since I've had my Maggie ht set up working(MMG's for fronts,MMGW's for surrounds and MMGC for center).Here are changes I've made and changes the Maggies have made themselves. First and foremost,The brightness I mentioned in my 1st post has disappeared.The Maggies have really changed.No,thats not the right term,been reborn would be more appropriate.At the 45 hour mark,I have noticed a huge change,more open even then before and without any brightness issues what so ever.A fuller,richer sound, now comes forth. Second change,this one I made myself.The MMG's come with metal feet that tilt the speakers to lean back.Although there are metal rings on the end of the feet to tilt the speakers to a more upright position,its still doesnt bring the MMG's vertical.On the MUG site someone(dont remember who)posted pics of oak stands they made that raise the MMG's off the floor(about 6 inches) and hold them vertical.This brings the speakers midpoint even with my ears. This has made a dramatic difference.Midrange seems cleaner ,and the sound no longer seems like its coming off the floor. Thats the good news,now for the not so good news.The MMGC center has given me some problems.1st off,this thing is huge,3 feet across.It looks very impressive on my rptv(not a good point or a bad point).In regards to the sound of the MMGC,thats a different story.To hear dialogue properly,I have had to tune the center 1 db hot compared to the rest of the system.This has not degraded my front soundstage and speech, female or male is very clear and easy to understand. Although the MMGC is a bowed planar speaker,it just doesnt seem to have the open airy quality of the MMGs' or the MMGW's.Dont get me wrong,the MMGC matches well in tone.I guess the term understated or subdued(SP?) seems to fit. I plan on giving the MMGC more time to break in to see if this changes.Magnepan will give me full credit towards their higher end center for up to 1 year if I decide to upgrade.I also have the option of running in phantom mode for a center. Overall,I am extremely pleased with my Maggies and would recommend them to anyone looking for a precise(does the phrase"knock your socks off clarity"ring a bell?),uncolored HT speaker system.
