Love the Maggies :wub:

Kerry,

Wendell Diller came into town last week for his latest roadshow, demo-ing these:

(pic is not from the shop where I heard them, but I don't have a decent pic from that night)

Inside panels are for mid & upper freqs, while outer panels are for lows.

I absolutely love the Magnepan sound.  I have the 1.6 model, but fell in love originally with some of the larger models.  I've had mine since 1989 and still like the open feel.

Great minds,..

Although I’ve always liked the sound of the Maggies I never had the pleasure of owning a pair. 

I had a pair of Apogee Duetta Signatures that I loved. I foolishly sold them to a friend because I could never set them up properly to get reasonable soundstage in the house I had. 

There is another major disadvantage of the Apogees - they need monstrous amps to drive them properly. The Maggies on the other hand seem much less peaky and open up many options for amping.
