Magico Launches S-Series Flagship: The S7


The new Magico S7 is a full-range, three-way, floorstanding loudspeaker that features all-new drivers derived from the M Project loudspeaker. The acoustic-suspension enclosure of the S7 features curved-aluminum side panels that are machined in-house from half-inch-thick aluminum extrusions 16" in diameter. Internal bracing minimizes resonances.

According to the company's April 6 press release, the S7's 10" bass drivers have "extremely powerful magnets and ultra-stiff aluminum cones, which are capable of producing deep, powerful bass frequencies with speed and accuracy." This woofer is said to be capable of undistorted sound-pressure levels up to 120dB at 50Hz/1m.

The 6" midrange driver is formulated using "Arkema Multi-Wall carbon nanotubes and XG Sciences C-750 Nanographene, which [when] combined is 20% lighter and 300% stiffer than previous cone-material designs. The driver operates in a purpose-built sub-enclosure made of a proprietary polymer material that was first introduced in the S3."

The S7's 1" tweeter features a diamond-coated beryllium diaphragm with "optimized geometry, created using state-of-the-art Finite Element analysis modeling tools. This purpose-built tweeter has extra-long-excursion movement and uses a neodymium-based motor system that is customized to match the sensitivity and power handling capabilities of the S7 while maintaining ultra-wide-dispersion characteristics and ultra-low-distortion measurements."

All five drivers in the S7 are acoustically integrated using Magico’s exclusive Elliptical Symmetry Crossover topology that includes state-of-the-art components from Mundorf of Germany.

The S7 weighs 300 pounds and is priced at $58,000.00 USD per pair. Availability is said to be July of 2015.

Architectural Audio is proud to announce the addition of HEGEL Music Systems into our exceptional roster of offerings.  Hegel is the brain child of Bent Holter, a Semi-conductor physicist as well as a musician.  Mr. Holter worked on transistors at the molecular level and earned a couple of patents that are being utilized in Hegel's amplifiers and digital products.  The company has been around for about 30 years and continue to make inroads due to its technical know how, but more importantly for sounding extremely musical!
