For sale Magnepan 1.7 Quasi Ribbon speakers with dark cherry trim. This speaker gets rave reviews and Best Buy accolades for a good reason. They sound really good. The most natural high end and mid range I have heard. It is so rich its jaw dropping. As sound comes off both front and back of the speaker it radiates off the walls and room which is where the huge soundstage comes from.

Being 86db efficiency, 4 ohm impedance speaker, they tend to prefer a higher current amp to drive them effectively. I played them with a 100watt tube amp, and they played fine; but general wisdom is to use a high power solid state amp with the speaker due to their inefficient nature and varying impedance.

Placement is flexible, but they sound the best a bit out from the walls and slightly toed in.

The speakers are 5 years old, in excellent functional and cosmetic condition. The cloth cover is in overall good condition; however it does have one small hole in the cloth in the back of one speaker (see pictures). Selling these speakers for my neighbour in return for the favour of him lending them to me for a couple weeks of fun listening.

Comes with original packing & shipping material but would prefer not to ship. Pick up or drop off is available between London and Toronto along the 401/403/402 corridor. Interac preferred, but PayPal acceptable (Please add fees).

Reviews are universally positive (raving actually), including from my wife (the musician speaker critic).


Note about the pictures: when in the listening room, the grills are not as transparent as they appear in these pictures. Increased transparency was caused by the camera flash.
