Ah - the good old battleship grey Cambridge Audio livery. It was panned by the reviewers, as were the buttons on the CD player (they described them as reminiscent of poking dead flesh). Very unfair, b

Love the Maggies :wub:

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.

I have a rather large oak bookshelf modified for audio use (i.e. liberal cutting of holes in the back) but I've used some Ikea ones in the past.  They all seem to be out of production though...
