  • Magnapan .7's have arrived for review

    I dropped by Magnapan Thursday and got a personal factory tour from Wendell. Very fun! So many hand made tools and forms. You can really see the many years of research and evolution in their products. I got the .7's home and found we had experienced a significant storm. 40 hours without power. (I did have a generator for the fridge!) Finally powered back up and I am listing to them now. Not sure what type of break in is normal for Planar's. I leave tomorrow for a business meeting in Colorado. I will leave them and Roon alone together while I am gone... My BHK250 and DS with get here Tuesday and I get home Thursday after visiting PS Audio Wednesday. Lot's going on in the Man Cave these days!

    My 1.7's took around 50-100 hours to really open up.

      Thanks! I am gone for 5 days so that should get things started.

        Nice thing about the Magnepans is they don't weight a couple hundred pounds. Lot easier to place!

          I've always liked Maggies for their neutral balanced tone. If all I listened to was "small music" I'd own a pair.

            I will spend some "Symphony" time with them. The .7's are only 54" high.. So a bit compromised compared to the 3.7's and 20.7's.

              Got our 1.7i speakers and decided to break them in by just leaving JRiver run for a few days. Found that if there is a computer "glitch" or "snap/crackle/pop" as it were, they take out the fuses. Just be aware that if there is a hiccup in the playback over a few days/week of burning in, you may be replacing fuses. Thankfully Magnepan included extras for the 1.7i

                  These sound very interesting. I wonder how they would work in a small room and being 2ft from the side and rear walls ?

                    Chris, 2 feet would probably be the minimum I would recommend based on what I am hearing. As a panel they do benefit from room to function as designed. I am impressed how solid the low end is. You can get to the upper 40's before they run out of low end definition. Not a lot of organ music around here so I am impressed with their showing for a wider range of genre's than I expected.
