    Friends,
    I have been a long-term Maggie user (around 17 years) and I was pleased to read that they have some exciting new HT speakers just added to their lineup.

    I have heard Maggies in a HT system and they do sound wonderful especially with Music DVDS. Very open and airy!

    Yes, I have heard a lot of HT system and Maggies convey the most realistic and involving sound. I think besides the accuracy of the transducers, the total square inch of sound vs cone speakers cannot be matched, its all in the physics of sound projection, regardless of how well designed cone speakers are.

    Their large wave launch way of reproducing sound just makes music sounds effortless. No matter how much the box speaker tries with their massive intert cabinet, completely isolated cabinet for each driver, super tech drivers with massive magnet and superstiff/light driver, they are still confined to the boxy, produce all the sound from one driver, sounds like they are coming from the speaker sound.
    Maybe it is not what HT enthusiast wants to hear though, since they want to hear the speaker pushing it, sounding brash, punchy and forward.
    Magnepan's HT system was recently reviewed by HomeTheaterSound, including the MG1.6/QR, MGCC2 and MGMC1 speakers.

    HP from TAS has recently reviewed the MG20.1's.

    Yes, I saw the HP review, very positive in tone. [​IMG]
    Something for us mere mortals to shoot for.
