Magico's V3 speakers ($25k) did duty on the main system with a monster Boulder amp while Magico's new speakers (roughly $60k, shown above) were on static display by the door. When I came into the Magico room, Harry Pearson of TAS was taking in the tunes and talking up Alon Wolf of Magico about a review pair. Alas, I didn't get a chance to hear the setup with my demo disc (Harry educated me on astrology instead) but I did snap some pics of the bigger Magico super ply speakers which, when I first saw them, made me whistle at their amazing looks and construction.
While I was taking my shots, everyone who walked by made some kind of flattering exclamation. Indeed, the new Magico is one of the most original and unique examples of industrial design ever to hit a box-type speaker. The new Magico will be ready for prime time with the completion of new nano-tec dedicated bass woofers.
