Excerpt: Among the crimes that Madison Avenue has committed against society is the watering down of language, specifically the meanings of certain words that just happen to have unique utility in advertising. We have amazing apples, fabulous flooring, and extraordinary earrings, and because of this, nothing that's truly amazing, fabulous or extraordinary gets the acclaim it deserves.
Summary: The Magneplanar MG3.6/R is one of the most successful
speakers I have had the pleasure of knowing. Though it did not resolve inner detail with
the incisiveness of the very best electrostatics, it nonetheless drew me into the music
through nuance and subtlety as well as through power and dynamic realism.

Excerpt: , the technology the company's speakers employ. Simply put, the speakers have no cabinet or "box," just a framework that supports a tightly stretched, electrically conductive Mylar membrane between arrays of small magnets. On each side, all the magnets are arranged so that the same magnetic pole faces the membrane and the two arrays oppose one another in polarity.
Summary: I know of not a single speaker at or near the
MG3.6/R’s price that can reproduce music as faithfully. Some speakers may play
louder, some deeper, but none can bring the sound of real musicians playing in a real
space into the listening room with conviction equal to that of the Magnepan MG3.6/R.
If you’ve got the space and money, and you
don’t give a hoot what your decorator thinks, then run out to your local Magnepan
dealer and give the MG3.6/R a listen.
