Having been a Magnepan dealer.....in the 70's.  I will tell you Magnapan, at all times in history has had an authorized dealer network.  They would always refer to the network in that persons location.  Now there are some dealers that are authorized and do not support Magnepan.  If you call them the will say our web site has a list of dealers check your zip and make a choice.

When I wanted LRS+, and I am in Missouri, I had my choice and let my fingers do the tailing, bh calling.  I worked with whom I felt was the most knowledgeable about every thing I was trying to accomplish, and stayed loyal to him.  He was the only one that said he could get me LRS+ in less than 30days. I paid him 1/3 on order, balance when he sent me a picture of the serial number and the box.  I verified with Magnepan that he was a legitimate dealer....I have met Wendell and Jim Winey, thousands of years ago, I found the entire corporation ethical in everything they did.   They are smart people, and know what they are doing, far better than I.  Best service around.....all about Good old fashion American Ingenuity and Craftsmanship.  Think of what you could learn by working there as an intern...sign me up.

No discounts!  Now that is up to the dealer, in 1973 or 4 I bought a pair of MG 11's, they were killer back then, had two Mac- mc 275's. a Thorens tt. Ortofon cart. Nakamichi 1000, a C-28 Mac pre-amp, 110 tuner, two Mk woofers.  Back in the day I paid (employee purchase (325.00) for the Mg II's.  That entire system cost me about 2800.00. Fast forward, today I have, LRS+. Roque Sphinx, Rel 7x. Kenwoord dd tt, with ortolan cart, an audio technical tt/with blue tooth for transferring vynal, Cambridge Audio Dac. I have spent. almost 6500.00 today.  Things have changed, but not great sounds, still from Magnepans.  At one time we compared double MG-II's side by side in our sound room with Double KLH 's.  Theory was wider baffle, lower frequency response, due to the lack of wave length cancellation as a dipole radiator. Maggies for the price killed it, 50 years ago.  Happy Thanksgiving,Merry Christmas to all!

If you are buying a LRS+ and fill in their form with all the required information, they will get back to you… and you will now have contact names, phone numbers and emails for them. 
 

I waited almost 9 months for a pair of black +s and black stands. They always got back to me promptly when I contacted them.  And this explains why they resell for almost list price when you see them offered. 
 

Of course they aren’t going to talk to you about Mye stands… and maybe not about any of the products that are currently only available through dealers. 
 

They are quirky… they make a great and almost indestructible product. And recently they seem to be bringing out updates and new products more frequently. 
 

So, if you want the +…. fill in the form… anything else, talk to the dealer. And if something pops up preowned that interests you… don’t wait too long or it will be gone… especially the newer stuff.

@rodglaze I think you've been living in a box for >5 years! have you not read any of the comments, including mine, of the awful and attrocious 'service' they now (do not) provide? It's a joke. On us. As for them being 'smart people' - really? Smart people would not have allowed this once premier company with a previous great customer service record, to go downhill in such a spectacular way. Their 'new' website they're proffereing, still, is over one and a half YEARS old, and is still a mess. As @cey says, a 12yr old could fix it in minutes - are they all asleep over there?! They, Magnepan, are becomming the biggest joke company in the Hi-Fi industry, which is a great shame as their speakers are fantastic (I own 1.7i's).

@crustycoot says they've just introduced a new speaker, called the 2.7i, but I couldn't find anything on their 'new' website for that product. It's strange that they've actually started to build a new speaker line, IF they have, when they can't even supply speakers in their current line up, or even support them when things go wrong (as in my case!). And there's almost zero info anywhere about a 2.7i, which, if true, and ever available, I would be VERY interested in.
