Don't make fun of the MBL speakers. Their sound was among the best at the show. I liked them so much that I may get a third mortgage and buy them. I haven't decided which model I want. They are considered to be bargain speakers and only cost in the $50,000 to $100,000 range.

Magico Speakers consistently sound among the best speakers in audio shows. There are three main reasons for this.
  1. The use of extremely high quality drivers.




  2. Perhaps the best cabinet construction and unbelievable internal bracing.




  3. The use of crossovers with high quality components. The speakers had the largest crossovers that I had ever seen. They were as big as some bookshelf speakers.

I pretty much listened to most of the speakers there. Unfortunately, there were so many rooms that I don't quite remember which speaker was in each room. Overall, all rooms had excellent sound and I wouldn't mind owning any of the systems.

The Magico speakers had several rooms and consistently had the best sound in the show. I went to another show a couple of months ago in Newport Beach, CA and Magico speakers had excellent sound. What surprised me the most was that their bookshelf speakers had unbelievably good sound with excellent bass. I asked them if they were hiding a subwoofer in the room. The sad part is that they cost $24,000 a pair.

Thx for the pix, BigD!

Did you get a chance to go to the Bluelight Audio room? I'm curious as to how good those Evolution Acoustics mmMicroOne actually sound in person.

Cheers.

Evolution Acoustics certainly makes great looking speakers. Unfortunately, I did not get a chance to listen to them. If I go to another audio show, I will definitely look for them.
