Hello. I've been quite interested in the $550 'factory direct' price that Magnepan has on their MMG speakers. Was wondering if any of you have had any personal experience with the MMG's? I work for an audio engineering firm ( www.dlcdesignaudio.com 'the DUMAX people' ), and we have a set of very old 'maggies' from about 15 years ago, and I absolutely LOVE them. Then again, they are heavily equalized, and have 4 Hafler 220 amps on them. There is no way that I can get to a dealer and listen to the MMG's, since Magnepan wants you to only get them factory direct. I COULD build my own towers for very cheap, but I simply don't have time to do so. This is why the Magnepan's really stuck out to me - simple, and cheap. I'm well aware of the Magnepan's lack of efficiency, and of their moderate bass response. But these do not bother me, as I have plenty of power, and have 4 8" woofers to handle 40-100Hz. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
