September 29th is creeping up faster than a distracted driver in a Tesla on a deaf dog crossing the road, and with that show’s launch will come some interesting news from inert-speaker designers extraordinaire Magico: The all-new M6. The 2014 M-Project saw the limited-edition M3 hit markets, and create real industry buzz among consumers, and critics alike for its sonic capabilities, so as a follow-on, the company decided to push the envelope even further, and push out as challenging a design as they could in 2017. Being touted as “…the most advanced dynamic loudspeaker ever built,” the company also claims a “…totally inert, enclosure.” Some people love the whole inert-enclosure thing, and while I’ve heard loudspeakers that adhere to this design principle, and genuinely been impressed by them, I find careful amplification, and source matching is essential to getting the best from these enclosures: heavy voltage rails, and big watts seem to wrest the best from any Magico I’ve heard to date.
I’m hopeful the M6 will be making it to the North American show circuit soon for a first-hand listening session, until then I’ll just have to wait along with the rest you. Here’s a Magico promotional video to keep you satiated until then.
