What do you do if you covet Magnepan’s soaring loudspeakers but don’t have the largest of listening rooms? “We hear you”, said Magnepan. Enter the new 0.7 (‘point seven’), a scaled down version of the brand’s acclaimed 1.7 model.
To say that Magnepan’s Magneplanar 1.7 flat-panel loudspeaker is highly regarded in its native USA would be something of an understatement. Hailed by the audiophile press as a landmark design, its initial launch was one of the most hotly anticipated at the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show. “Not just the Affordable Loudspeaker of the Year, the 1.7 is the affordable loudspeaker of the decade”, said The Absolute Sound on bestowing its coveted award, while over on CNET, US reviewer Steve Guttenberg described the 1.7 as “one of the greatest speakers of our new century”.
Now Magnepan have introduced the new 0.7 (‘point seven’), a scaled down version of the ever-popular 1.7, designed with the smaller listening room in mind.
