Magnepan Super MMG Floorstanding Speaker
Introducing the new MMGi
The first sonic upgrade since the MMG was introduced in 1995. The differences can be detected in a careful blind test, but as is our policy, we make no sonic claims or engage in sales hyperbole. For those who have never heard an MMG, it may not matter. But, be assured, the "appetizer" got a little better.
With the Super MMGi package, enjoy your MMGi speakers alongside a DWM base panel.
Quasi Ribbon Models
Ribbon speakers have long been respected as pure and elegant transducers. Closely related to the ribbon speaker, the Magneplanar Quasi Ribbon has the appearance and sound quality similar to a true ribbon at a fraction of the cost. Sometimes called Ribbon speakers by other manufacturers, the Quasi Ribbon speaker brings high-end speaker performance to today's mid-priced loudspeakers. Despite the delicate appearance, all Quasi Ribbon models have very high power handling capability and are nearly impervious to abuse.
A Tradition of Innovation and Advanced Technology
Have you ever noticed that instruments projected from small boxes sitting on the floor sound like they are coming out of boxes on the floor? This problem can be partially corrected by placing the box speakers on tall speaker stands. However, the sound still seems to be coming out of a box, because that's precisely what it is doing.The patented Magneplanar principle eliminates these problems by a fundamentally different approach to sound propagation. The Magneplanar projects sound from top to bottom, giving the sound height as well as stereo width and depth. In the concert hall, instruments project in all directions. Instead of projecting sound out of a box, Magneplanars project in all directions, which closely duplicates the original performance. With your eyes closed the Magneplanar will allow you to "see" the original performance suspended in space. The full height, width and depth of the concert hall can be heard.
Theoretically, loudspeakers should use massless drivers suspended in space with no box, magnet structure, or framework around the drivers. Most conventional box speakers are far from this ideal. The mass of the driver is high and the rear wave is contained within the box or magnet structure. While the frequency response can be smoothed out in a box speaker, the character of the sound is inevitably affected. The music sounds like it is coming out of a box-constricted and unnatural. The Magneplanar diaphragm comes closer to the ideal driver. The mass is low and the diaphragm is not contained. The sound is permitted to radiate freely into space. With the box removed, Magneplanars sound more like you are there.
The power from an ampilifer causes the conventional cone speaker to react as if it had received a sharp blow at the voice coil. Since the outer portions of the cone cannot respond instantly, the cone will flex. The resulting cone breakup gives music a "fuzzy", "blurred" quality. The Magneplanar eliminates cone breakup by driving the Magneplanar diaphragm over its entire area. The force from the amplifer is distributed over the entire diaphragm so that it all moves at the same time. Cone or diaphragm breakup is dramatically reduced and the integrity of the music is preserved.
