I certainly understand wanting to preserve the dealer network. But I don’t see how selling online to those without a dealer threatens any existing dealers. As it is, it leaves those without a (reasonably) local dealer few to no options. Apparently, Magnepan is ok with this.I seriously miss my local dealer who would let me audition most anything at home, knowing I’d likely end up buying it. I’m can’t say I’m real confident that the LRS would give me a good enough idea how a larger Maggie (and which one??) would look and perform in my room. Am I wrong?
The LRS would certainly give you an idea about how a 0.7 or a 1.7i would sound in your room depending upon the size. The 3.7i is a different animal. I own both an original MMG and the 1.6's. My room is 17x17 with 9 foot ceilings. The MMG's easily filled the room without strain. Of course, you need a good amp.
I think it's time to take this to a different thread if you wish to continue this discussion.There are no questions for the factory here.
The LRS program is the same as the MMGi. There is a one-year upgrade to a 1.7i or higher with a partial credit. I looked and the MMGi trade in was full credit so I'm not sure if I have the definitive answer or not. At the very least I can say that there is a trade in period towards the big boys.I asked Wendell years ago what they did with all of the returned ones and he said that very few speakers ever come back.Everyone probably does what I did: hold onto them and use them in another system.I'm thinking of getting some LRS for the TV system and using my old MMGs set up like giant Stax headphones by my computer.No fooling.
...although they're really against conventional cone woofers and any sort of built-in amplification. I know for a fact that ain't never gonna happen even if ain't ain't in the dictionary.
