As some of you may know,last week I ordered a set of Magnepan MMG's for fronts,MMGw's for surrounds and a MMGC for a center. This is my 1st attempt at using planar speakers in HT setup.The speakers arrived yesterday,and I spent most of the afternoon hooking them up and calibrating.Magnepan calls for a 150 hour break in period.This is one of the reasons they offer a 60 day trial rather then a 30 day. The speakers are being pushed by the outlaw 950/7100 combo.Maggies are 4 ohm speakers.Placement is even more important on planars and I've yet to find the perfect spot. I'd heard that the Maggies would be a little brite to begin with until they break in and I've found this to be true.Its not an annoying briteness but its there. The testing started with two channel stereo.The 1st thing I noticed was the sound field,huge doesnt even come close to describing it.Wide open ,you are there kind of sound is more accurate.Yes I was amazed.Piano's in particular,but all instruments are stunning to listen to on the maggies.Talk about uncolored sound,wow. One of my concerns was how well the MMGC center would fit in the the MMG's for a fluid flow of sound in HT mode.The MMGWC is a planar speaker that is bowed and has feet to sit on top of my RPTV.Lots of folks I talked to are running Maggies in phaetom center mode.I shouldnt have worried .The MMGC blended well with the MMG's.In HT mode, sound seemed to float across the center soundstage. Using the LOTR dvd and the U571 dvd,I sat back and waited to be enveloped in sound.I was not disappointed.The rear MMGW's matched well and really filled the blank spots in my HT.Clarity of sound is most impressive.Sound moving around my HT was smooth,and well blended.Female voices are somewhat thin,but as I mentioned above,I think this will resolve itself during breakin. The only cons I've found so far are,a little on the brite side(until break in completes),and a narrower sweet spot then I'm used to. Taking into consideration the cost of this 5 speaker setup,$1350 delivered 2nd day,I am so far,extremely pleased. Sorry if the review sounds somewhat fanboi,but its the only the 1st day with my new setup and I feel like a kid in a candy store.
