Unfortunately, many of these links produce only page not found errors...  :?

Looks like 3 or 4 dead links. 
I'll have to clean it up when I have some free time which isn't this evening.

Thanks, that looks like a good review. 
I stuck it in with the stereo speakers section and will give it a read after work.  The IT guys have flagged this site and banned it to keep my nose to the grindstone.

Sorry Steve - didn't mean to create more work, just that I clicked expectantly on several of those links only to be disappointed.

FWIW, I posted a link to the widescreen review over on the Planar Asylum  several days ago but it was deleted as the mod there believed the article remains copyrighted ...

I'd rather know about dead links than not.
I'm just doing a lot of OT at work the past few weeks which is both good for the bills and bad for my play time.
I work for the gubbernment and they only have two modes:
No overtime, save money!!!
which then leads to
OH MY GOD, how did this happen, overtime needed!!!

Sorry Steve. I saw it on AA and thought it would be of interest here. Didn't realize it might be a no no.

Steve k,
There's nothing wrong with posting links.
Back to work for me.  I'm sure glad the weekend is just about here.

It looks like I've got the dead links out of this section (for now, at least).
If you find any more, please let me know and by all means, links to other reviews would be great.

I just finished reading that article that steve k posted and it's really a good one. 
Next weekend I need to make the time and try that DWM with my MMGs.

i am not sure which issue but harry did a mini review on an all maggie surround setup and raved that if immersion is what youre after, thats the way to go. 

i have also been privy to an all martin logan setup that i got a dealer to arrange.  definitely worth considering as well.  my doctor friend who the demo was for turned to me seconds into a john williams guiter piece and said "you don't usually hear that sound unless youre holding the guitar!".

I've probably already said this on this forum before, but the first time I read the HT info on the official Magnepan site written by Jim Winey, I honestly thought it was marketing bologna. People were telling me that Maggies just weren't HT speakers and that I should look elsewhere. Thank GOD I took the time to find out for myself. Magnepans not only offer the most amazing HT experience I've ever had, the fact that I can use the most inexpensive speakers in their line (MMG-W) for surrounds and get a wonderful blend and, to use your word, immersion with my 3.6 mains, is something I've always been excited about. If I were more into MC music, I'd have MC-1s back there, but for great surround sound with movies the on-wall MMG-Ws are all I need. I get a very deep, immersive 360 sound field that just brings the movie alive and allows you to feel much more connected to it.

Well count me in on the Maggie’s sounding great in a home theater system. I just watched Thor with my new LRS’s and it sounded great!

Holy 7.5 + year old thread revival!

I do agree that a Maggie HT system is pretty amazing.  With 7 Maggie’s, 3 subs and 6 amps all controlled by a Theta Casablanca IVa and D3 Xtreme DAC card, I am blown away.  :green:
