At the medic8r Memorial Day Bash (TM), the husband of an ex-coworker mentioned that his uncle has some Magnepan speakers that he is interested in selling. They are the MG 1.6 model, in black finish.

Based on what I have read about this company and their speakers, I am going to audition them ASAP in my HT. I'll be able to listen to them with and without my EP500.

From what I can gather with web searches (MSRP is not on the Magnepan web site), if new, these would be ~$1700 for the pair. Dan says his uncle would sell them for $1000.

Will keep you posted. Just had to share the news that I may soon get to audition/purchase some Maggies!

I hear from my friend that there is probably some haggling room. Apparently this guy buys things one month and sells them the next quite often.

I have seen some recently for $900 on Audiogon, so that price is OK considering you don't have to pay for shipping. Check them out!

I have always wanted to hear some Maggies. From what I've read about them they love strong amps and are finicky about placement. But half of the fun of this hobby is trying new things so go for it. If you don't like them you can use them to stand behind when you are getting dressed.

I've never heard them either, I understand they have a very clean sound but a sub is a must for the lower fq's.
Half of communication is listening. You can't listen with your mouth.
