MAGNEPAN MMG BLACK/OAK
As Dick Olsher of Stereophile magazine asserts, The impossible problem for a conventional speaker, then, is this: how to convince you it’s a grand piano when the instrument’s full acoustic power is being squeezed through an 8″ woofer. When I close my eyes and try to conjure up an image size, a planar speaker reproduces piano, double-bass, cello and human voice with much more spatial conviction than is possible with a conventional dynamic speaker. It’s true–a planar makes a recorded piano sound more like a real piano.
Magnepan is the most successful manufacturer of full-range dipole loudspeakers in the world. Over 200,000 of these speakers have been purchased by audiophiles … audiophiles such as those taking part in the last speaker survey conducted by Stereophile magazine which revealed more of their readers owned Magneplanars than any other brand, and 99% were satisfied with their purchase.
