Ever since Magnepan’s Wendell Diller married this beautiful former Soviet spy (aka Agent G), he’s been doing everything on the down low, hush-hush, totally covert. (Though I must say he does look good in dark glasses.)
This year at AXPONA he has a secret room, at the end of an obscure hall, with no signage. Agent G watches the door from a distance, and you must knock the secret knock to enter.
Once inside, it looks just like any other well-turned-out AXPONA room, but the sounds I heard from this new secret speaker were not like any other sounds I experienced at AXPONA. Think light-speed galactic fast, tone-perfect, and Prada-model slender. No kidding folks, I will not get to hear all the rooms, but I doubt any room could sound much better.
I am forbidden to say what Magnepan’s new speaker is called, but I can say it looks like a Little Ribbon Speaker (LRS): about the same size as an MMG, but all quasi-ribbonnot planar magnetic with a ribbon tweeter.
I can tell you the price because it’s so ridiculous ($650/pair) that no one will believe it. The amp was another secret Magnepan project: stereo, 300W@4 ohms and 200W@8 ohmsbut no price.
As I snuck out, with my spy-coat collar turned up, I think I saw a Bryston preamp and CD player, too.
