After their UK launch in London last week, Magico sent us further information about their new, more affordable loudspeaker, the A3.

Magico told us: “Machined into the metal of every Magico loudspeaker is a subtle, yet permanent, “M”. Our symbol is a simple reminder to the owner of a Magico product that they have purchased a product born of an uncompromised, unapologetic pursuit of performance excellence. The standards we have set for a product bearing our M logo are not without consequence. The push forward into the development of new, exotic, costly technologies and materials has meant that these products are accessible only to a fortunate few. While we have long wanted to bring a more affordable product to the market, and despite constant experimentation and testing of various methods for reducing costs to achieve this goal, the results have always fallen short of earning the Magico M engraving”.

The Magico A series, launched with the A3 makes a  Magico loudspeaker “obtainable for a wider audience”. The A3 features a fully braced and anodized aluminium enclosure, beryllium tweeter, carbon Nanographene cones, neodymium based motor systems and the Magico elliptical crossover.

High Frequency driver

The newly designed Magico pure beryllium-diaphragm tweeter has an optimised 28-mm dome surface based on the design platform and geometry of the M-Project tweeter. The customised neodymium motor system is encased in an improved back chamber with Magico’s latest generation damping materials.

.Midrange Frequency driver

The newly developed 6-inch midrange employs a Multi-Wall carbon fibre cone with a layer of XG Nanographene. Overhung neodymium based motor systems incorporate extra-large magnets to ensure a stabilised magnetic field in the 75-mm pure titanium voice coils of both the midrange and bass drivers.

Low Frequency Drivers

Dual 7-inch woofers feature a version of the new Gen 8 Magico Nano-Tec cone.. A new overhung neodymium (N48) based motor system anchors the low frequency reproducers to accomplish a stabilised magnetic field. Pure Titanium, 75mm voice coils are used and our consistent with the technology utilised through the midrange.

Crossover

All four drivers in the A3 are acoustically integrated using Magico’s proprietary Elliptical Symmetry Crossover topology that uses components from Mundorf of Germany. The 3-way network features a 24db per octave Linkwitz-Riley filter.

Enclosure

The A3’s sealed-enclosure is made entirely from 6061 T6 aircraft grade aluminium, identical materially to the enclosure developed for the Q Series. This braced, complex internal structure is finished externally with a brushed anodized “skin”.  The A3 enclosure is a simplified Q Series design, with the same materials and craftsmanship.

The Magico A3 has a UK RRP of £11,998 inc. VAT per pair. Orders are now being taken for delivery this spring, distributed in the UK by Absolute Sounds.
