    Re: Joe's next speakers

    Hi Joe, I voted for the Strads as well. Your MC601's and ARTS should have no problem driving them and you yourself said how wonderful they make you feel. It's up to you to determine whether you want the precision and accuracy of something like Raidho or the musicality of something more along the lines of SF. Now if by chance you happen to hit the Powerball someday I offer you this:

    Living Voice Vox Olympian.

    Re: Joe's next speakers

    Joe, I would love to suggest the very best pair of loudspeakers to you and which would make you extremely happy forever ever fever after.
    But I simply don't know where to start.

    Let me put it straight this way to you if I may: Speakers are a very personal thing; they are like a pair of stereo women. Nobody can tell you which pair is the right fitting pair for you. Best thing is to audition as many as you can in your own bed, and start from there. ...When you'll hear the right sound, you'll know if you can live with them for a long time, or not. ...Good luck! ...In your ultimate pursuit of happiness. ...Love life, live longer and we all love you.

    I've talked to MANY other Magico dealers as well as maybe 10 Magico customers who bought Magico speakers from other dealers than myself. Not one person that I talked to has experienced any Q.C issues.

    I personally have been involved shipping and receiving many sets of Magico speaker with not one little issue. Every set of speakers and the overall shipping/receiving experience has been perfect.

    Re: Joe's next speakers

    My recommendation is the Raidho D3's for Joe.



    They have a manageable footprint, play amazingly well at low volumes and the new D3's are more back wall friendly.

    The D3's will also sound great with some of the amps Joe likes to play with.




    The D3's resolution and clarity is unmatched.

    I was not the one that brought it up, just responding to the two comments below that were made prior to my post.
