Magnepan MG 1.7 Speaker

Ron Nagle (enjoythemusic.com) writes as follows: So many companies traverse the audio scene like meteors; they blaze across the sky and rapidly fade from sight. Some few manufacturers have endured to join this generation of Hi-End Audio. The Magnepan Company is certainly one of these. It began back in 1969 with a design conceived in the mind of engineer Jim Winey. Let me pause for a moment to clarify two words that could cause confusion.

The speaker's functional design is called Magneplanar; the company that makes the speakers is Magnepan. These two words are frequently used interchangeably. The Magnepan Company Magneplanar 1.7 speaker is an extensive redesign of a predecessor, the near iconic Magneplanar 1.6. Notably, the very popular, Magneplanar 1.6 had a 12 year long production run.

The marking manager Wendell Diller informed me that the 1.6 speaker series was essentially a two-way design that could be bywired and bi-amplified. To date designer Jim Winey and the Magnepan Company have taken a basic design concept and continued to advance and refine what is possible.
