Congrats! I didn't mean to worry you about breakin. They will get better with 75 hours. Try different positioning, even moving 1 or 2 inches. Place tape on the floor so you can remember which positions sound good. I found that mine sound better at about 7' apart. If you integrate a sub, try running the Mags at full range. Maggie bass is tight and musical. However, YMMV.By the way, the cherry trim is variable. It could be light or dark.Enjoy!Larry
I went with the grey with cherry sides which is a darker cherry color than we are all used to.If the white fabric is the same as they use on their later models it actually looks like light silver in my room which is pretty.I was tired of black fabric.As far as sound, its fantastic, the deal of the day in audio everyone should own a pair!Plan on shipping time being longer than quoted unless they have ramped up production in the last month.I run my with a Pass Labs 30.8
More listening impressions.....These definitely thrive on well recorded material, and a beefy amp! My Parasound amp seems a good match.I’ve read that Maggies can somewhat lack dynamics. I don’t think they give up much, if anything. Granted, I’m crossing the LRS over to a sub at 70hz, but this small Maggie still impressed me with dynamic material. I was very impressed how they handled the track “Death of Titanic” from the Titanic soundtrack. Even cranked up the sound remained clean. Well recorded choral music? Gorgeous!Madonna’s “Immaculate Collection”, recorded in QSound, was a real treat. The QSound effects were so much fun!There are times when they seem a little hot on the top end, depending on the recording. I might try installing a resistor to see what it does (several were included) Anyone know how much each resistor attenuates the tweeter?
I think the 1 ohm resistor attenuates about 3db but it should say in the manual. Those resistors are crap. Try a 1 or 1.2ohm Mills or Duelund Resistor. I use a Dueland 1.2 ohm. The 1 ohm did not attenuate enough for my room.https://www.partsconnexion.com/duelund-cast-graphite-resistors-carbon-w-silver-leads.htmlBut these Mills also sound great as I own both-https://www.partsconnexion.com/MILLS-71901.htmlThe Mills is a little warmer.
Saturn, the higher the ohms on the resistor the higher the attenuation or more db.
Just chiming in on resistors... Yes the 1 ohm will attenuate less than the 2 ohm. It is worth while to experiment, buying some Mundorf MOX ($1.80) in 1, 1.5 0.68 etc. to find the right level for you. Once you FIND the right level, if you really want to move up, go for that value in a Path Audio resistor. ($25)Trying the resistors, they may not sound as good as can be, but you can get the idea of attenuation. Plus it is expected to use a 1 ohm. The baseline in 1 ohm. With no resistor for 'dull' rooms, and 2 ohms for bright rooms.
