Magnepan MG 30.7s are here!
Posted on January 31st, 2019
Here’s a brief snippet from their website: “This giant, four-panel (two panels per side), four-way, ribbon/quasi-ribbon line source loudspeaker from Magnepan is the best Maggie JV has heard, which is tantamount to saying it is the best planar JV has ever heard (and right up there with the best six-figure dynamics JV has heard). With its highly coherent wave-launch, free standing imaging, vast soundstage, phenomenal resolution of inner detail, lightning transient response, incomparable naturalness of timbre, and total lack of box coloration and diffraction, the 30.7 is markedly less “there” as a sound source (and markedly more lifelike on voice and acoustic instruments) than almost every dynamic-speaker-in-a-box, no matter its price.”
We continue to break them but they are showing great promise …. If you have the space and enough amplifier these speakers, dare I say it, may be the final jumping off point.
Focal Elegia Headphones
Posted on January 22nd, 2019
For those of you craving a truly private listening experience, might we introduce the Elegia.
The Elegia is the first, audiophile circum-aural closed-back headphone from Focal.
Over the years, most sealed or closed back headphones have disappointed us; mainly lacking any real extension in the top end, sounding a little dim as a result. It appears the Elegias have solved this.
If you are in the market for a magnificent set of sealed cans, then the Elegias might just be the ticket.
