Magnepan .7 Loudspeaker - Standard model includes steel bent-feet.

High End Audio where space is at a premium.

 

Awarded Loudspeaker of the Year - CNET 2015! 

"For months I knew my Speaker of the Year was going to be the Magnepan .7. Its see-through transparency, awe inspiring soundstage depth, and treble purity are easily competitive with speakers that sell for two or even three times the price."

We heard you - "The 1.7 is too big for my small room."


So, we down-sized the 1.7 and called it the ".7." It was that simple. Most all of what you read about the 1.7 applies to the .7.

Ok, not everything. Because the .7 has a smaller bass diaphragm, it has less "bite on the air."

Consequently, the bass will be less than the 1.7 if you wish to use it in a larger room. However, the DWM Bass Panel can be used to supplement the bass.

The .7 offers full-range, quasi-ribbon technology at a price that some audiophiles spend for speaker cables. Value is what Magneplanars are all about.

The .7 has standard steel bent-feet. Or see the deluxe acrylic oval base option here.

For those that have followed the "i" upgrades of the 3.7 and 1.7, the improvements of the 3.7i and 1.7i were incorporated into the .7.

 

The Absolute Sound reviews the Magnepan .7

 "Let me say right off the bat that these are very impressive speakers offering a practically unbeatable quality-to-cost ratio."

Music at home sounds more like live music - with Magnepan!

"The Magnepan .7 redefines the state of the art for affordable high-end speakers" - Steve Guttenberg, CNET

"The sound was startlingly realistic, and somehow the .7s were doing a better job conjuring a full-bodied human voice than a lot of much more expensive speakers I've reviewed over the last 18 years...

Details and textures abound -- the sound of Miles' trumpet and the "On the Corner" rhythm section were fully present. With Aphex Twin's deliciously palpable electronica the .7 speakers again unraveled the densest of sounds, which floated free of the actual locations of the panels. With Magnepans, music at home sounds more like live music."

AudioFi.net review NOV 2015, Magneplanar MG .7 - Perfect Panels

"APPLAUSE: Everything I love about Maggies is present here, the smaller panels never once indicating a smaller stage or projection. The compact size means easier integration into the home decor. Transparent and engaging as heck, and always communicative."

"Real-world loudspeaker".

Cronus Magnum III and Magnepan .7 Loudspeakers - Stereophile Magazine, Feb 2020  Excerpt:

 

AMG Giro Turntable, DS Audio E1 Optical Phono Cartridge System, Rogue Audio Cronus Magnum III Integrated Amplifier, Magnepan .7 Speakers, Wireworld Cables

Julie Mullins  |  Feb 13, 2020

 

 

On Sunday morning I eased into my rounds with the Musical Surroundings folks: In conjunction with local dealer Sweet Home Audio, they presented a sweet-sounding, straight-up analog setup that featured several products at (relatively) more affordable price points than is sometimes the case.

 

If it isn't apparent by now, I'm kind of a sucker for good design and gear with aesthetic appeal in addition to (of course) good sound. So yeah, I was loving the made-in-Germany AMG Giro belt-drive turntable with its shiny sapphire blue base/plinth of machined aircraft-grade aluminum in a "double circle" configuration with a white platter made of a proprietary synthetic material. (This was a special edition; it also comes in black and other color options.) It uses the same decoupled spindle design that's found in AMG's higher-end Viella V12 turntable.

The DS Audio E1 optical cartridge system consists of the DS E1 cartridge ($1250USD) and DS E1 phono preamp/equalizer ($1500USD) with minimal filtering. The cartridge has an elliptical stylus mounted to an aluminum cantilever and a new wire suspension for increased channel separation. The optical sensor is placed closer to the stylus than in prior DS cartridges, and there are no lasers used in this model.

A 100Wpc Rogue Audio Cronus Magnum tube integrated amplifier powered a pair of Magnepan .7 planar-magnetic loudspeakers to pleasing effect, with wide-open soundstaging, substantial midrange, more low-end extension on bass lines than expected, and wonderfully natural sound on John Prine's "Fish and Whistle," to name just one selection. Maggies are often considered among the best bargains in hi-fi, though placing them properly in the room can be tricky. Setup requires a little extra care and finesse-which was clearly done well here.

A couple of other German-made turntables were on static display, the Clearaudio Performance DC Wood model for one-and for those who desire top-tier performance and ease in record cleaning, the Clearaudio Double Matrix Professional Record Cleaner ($6000USD) appeared to be a beautifully machined and well-engineered contender."
