Arguably one of the most anticipated products of this young year has arrived. The MG.7 made a few appearances last year at various audio shows and to much acclaim. Well, there is no need to travel. They are here and breaking in nicely. The new look is a bit of a stylistic departure but the magnificent Magnepan sound is maintained. Priced from $1799.00.

We just received word that Paradigm have decided to cease production of this venerable range. First introduced in mid-1997, the Studio range departs in its v.5 iteration. Paradigm will honour any orders placed before Feb 1, 2015. While this may seem like short notice, this is a great time (and only!) to finish off that Studio theatre. For a taste of nostalgia, here is the Stereophile review of the original Studio 100. How time flies!

Have a look at the Audio Ark pdf above; it appears to be official! Models presently on demonstration include, the Middle T, Mini T, Model A2 and the TC-1 centre channel. In our main theatre room we are presently displaying a complete Bryston theatre; processor, amplifiers and loudspeakers. No Bryston woofer yet but we kept it Canadian with a Paradigm Studio SUB15.

Just wanted to bring everyone up to speed on what is expected to arrive at the Ark in the coming weeks. From Cardas we will see the Clear Reflection interconnects and speaker cables. Also on the cable front, we should see the Venom interconnects and speaker cables from Shunyata. Marantz’s flagship A/V processor, the AV8802, should drop in about three weeks. The Bryston BDA-3 is due but likely to be a few months rather than weeks. Same goes for their BOT-1; something about a power supply. Arcam’s CDS27 should be ready by early February. Fingers crossed as I am pretty excited about this one. Finally, Magnepan’s MG .7 should darken our doors this month. We’ve had our order in at Magnepan for some time, so here’s hoping. Can’t wait to hear these.
The site will be updated when these products begin to arrive. Stay tuned.
