These baby Maggies were stripped to the bare mylar and rebuilt using Magnepan parts and factory approved 3M adhesives.
New parts include tweeter/midrange wire, bass wire, new socks, 2 new feet, and new badges. A total of six feet will be included.
Neither capacitor was replaced and no crossover mods were done.
The speakers look good with 2 caveats. There is some swelling at the bottom of one panel where the previous owner allowed
contact with water. Also one replacement sock has a small tear near the speaker connections.
Compared to the MMG- their younger brother- they have less treble extension and are not quite as analytical.
They do have a warmer, more easy going, and forgiving sound which some prefer. In any case they will offer their new owner a great
introduction to the Maggie presentation for a modest investment.
No boxes so no shipping but I am willing to deliver within a reasonable distance of Saskatoon.
One panel has a lower output (about 8 db). I originally noticed this after the rebuild but remelted all the solder connections which seemed to
fix the issue. This was verified using a test CD. On Oct 13 I noticed that the problem returned. For those using a preamp with a balance control this
may only be a minor concern. Those more adept at diagnosing electrical problems may find an easy solution. New price reflects the condition downgrade.
Extra pair of white feet
Upgraded ceramic fuses
