Descrizione:

Come potete ben vedere dalle foto , la forma di questi diffusori e veramente particolare e anche il modo di emissione non e convenzionale.

Sono i classici diffusori che o si amano o si odiano !! per il modo che hanno di esprimersi  e io   che sono per natura molto curioso li ho provati  ...

 

Versione tele nere - fianchetti neri laccati

 

 

 

Versione con tela chiara

La prima prova  lo fatta con un ampli valvolare di media potenza ( 30 watt circa) , ho posizionato i diffusori in maniera classica ....  ho messo  uno dei miei classici CD di riferimento .........  veramente una brutta impressione !!!!!  allora provo a spostare i diffusori  ma nulla da fare , quello che usciva non mi soddisfaceva ... il basso era presente , ma la musica usciva con fatica....

Le metto da parte abbastanza desolato  e praticamente me le scordo , fino al giorno che  arriva da me in officina un amico  che  le conosce bene , perche' le usa da tanti anni nel suo impianto ...   ottimo allora  inizio  subito a raccontargli i miei problemi........................

 

le connessioni  delle magneplanar , accettano anche banane da 4 mm classiche

 

Mi dice  che assolutamente i 30 watt valvolari sono insufficienti per questo tipo di diffusore , ma che necessita di molta più potenza ...   addirittura mi racconta che lui  usa un finale da 200 watt !!!!

Poi mi spiega  che l'inclinazione originale e un pochino peggiorativa  e che lui si e fatto costruire dei supporti appositi che fanno stare i diffusori perfettamente  verticali.

 

 

E che  vanno posizionati relativamente vicine al punto di ascolto  e piuttosto  lontani  dai muri , sia  di lato che dietro.

 

 Allora ho preso  questo ampli

Korsun  V6

 

Ho inclinato i diffusori  , come da consiglio e   ho fatto partire il CD ...   e cambiato completamente il suono , la gamma  e risultata piena e completa.

Il suono del medio alto si può considerare una via de mezzo tra il tweeter di Hail  e le  Quad  cio' abbastanza  veloce , ma non quanto l'Hail  ( il che non guasta) meno brillante delle Quad..   insomma  diffusori molto bilanciati  e sopratutto non mi hanno deluso nella sezione  medio bassa , ben presente  al contrario di quello che mi aspettavo ... naturalmente  se  ascoltate  solamente  musica  rock passate  oltre , ma se ascoltate jazz , voci ,  pop leggero posso consigliarvele.

Punto di forza e sicuramente la spazialità che danno questi diffusori , il  palcoscenico risulta molto profondo.

Una recensione delle

Magneplanar MG12 loudspeakers. $3000

Magne-what? It’s been several years since the Magneplanar range of speakers have been available in New Zealand, but it’s a very welcome return. For me, it’s like going back home again. Some 18 years ago I owned a pair of Magneplanar SMGa speakers, an older predecessor to the MG12s reviewed here. When offered the MG12s for review I jumped at the chance.

So what is a Magneplanar? Some people immediately think that a panel speaker is an electrostatic. Not in this case. An electrostatic speaker requires an electrical charge to energise the speaker; Maggies are like normal speakers, only requiring a signal from the amplifier.

In some ways the Magneplanar is similar to a conventional woofer or tweeter. Like a conventional driver, the Maggies use magnets and a voice coil to create sound by moving air. Unlike a conventional driver, the magnets are spread out throughout the whole panel structure, and the voice coil is attached to a mylar sheet, which does the moving of air, creating the sound

 

There is one big difference between conventional driver and the Magneplanar panel. A conventional driver needs to move a relatively large distance (or excursion) to create sound. A Magneplanar panel moves very little. But with the very large panel area can still create high levels of sound.

Standing some 1300mm high and 450mm wide (but only 35mm deep), a pair of MG12 loudspeakers will dominate the aesthetics of a room more than most stand-mount or floorstanding loudspeakers would. Maggies also need to be well out from the rear wall to sound their best.

Doesn’t sound too good, does it? But the MG12 is light in weight and can be left close to the wall, where they look like some sort of screen decoration. Move them back out into the room when you want to listen seriously.

 

Listening to the MG12s for the first time can be a disconcerting experience. Most of us are very used to listening to music through conventional box speakers, and we’ve largely become used the various box, cone and dome sounds that conventional speakers have.

So play some music through the MG12s and the reaction is “wow!” All of the box sounds, the cone and dome sounds that we’ve all grown so used to were gone. The first few days were spent marvelling at this, and it was only after several days that I was able to hear what the MG12 did and did not do.

The first thing that stuck me and others who listened to the MG12s was how cohesive, continuous and coherent was the reproduction of music. They really sounded as if the music was cut from one cloth, instead of coming from different drive units. This coherence and continuousness really helps make music from the MG12s sound more real.

 

il dettaglio del fianco

 

Older Magneplanars could be a little reticent in the high end, but that’s been changed with the newer models. The MG12 has a small version of Magneplanar’s quasi-ribbon tweeter, which produces very good higher frequencies.

In some rooms – mine included – the MG12 can sound a little bright and forward (the crossover is around 900Hz, far lower than the typical 3kHz of box speakers). So I used the supplied resistor to knock the tweeter response back by a dB or so.

At the other end of the frequency spectrum, the MG12’s resolve bass information is a way that I find superior to many competing speakers. The “what” and “why” of what is happening in the bass is answered by the MG12s, showing that there’s more to good bass than just pumping air. The MG12s showed, for example, the decay of Charlie Watts’ drumbeats in parts of the Rolling Stones’40 Licks compilation, and the relationship set up between Watts’ drumming and Bill Wynman’s bass playing.

And that difficult area from the mid-bass to lower midrange was beautifully handled, with a solidity and sense of body from that big panel on the first CD from Pink Floyd’s The Wall. Speaker designers often struggle with the trade-off between weight and clarity in this area.

But bass from Maggies is different than from cone woofers. The MG12 doesn’t have the punch and bass impact that many box speakers can have. It’s a trade-off that Maggie-owners will make, but if you need to physically feel the music then the MG12s may not be for you.

For $3000 there is no speaker that I know of in New Zealand that can do what the Magneplanar MG12 does. It is demanding in terms of space required and can dominate the room, but if you like what the MG12 does, then there’s no going back. The only decision then is whether to buy the MG12s or spend an extra $1800 on the even better
