is Magnepan out of business??  or whats going on,  zero supply on the web site..


and if you don't have a local Magnepan dealer, call Johnny R , he's as good as it gets...

+1 Audio Connection. Bought a pair of 1.7s from John a few months back. He had to order them, and I had to wait a month for the new speakers. But then he delivered them and helped set them up. Would deal with him again.

I’m surprised they are still in business. When the 30.7’s were coming out, I called and talked to Wendell about the 30.7’s and he told me people were buying these sight unseen and he was trying the hard sell on the 30.7’s. I told him, they would have to be 2-4x better than the 20.x’s (I actually prefer the 20.1’s over the .7’s), and he told me they would be much better. I attended a tour stop for the 30.7’s and they sounded like sh$t. Even my magnapan owners were surprised they sounded this bad. There a dozens and dozens of speakers I would rather have that cost 1/10 to 1/3 the cost of the 30.7’s. Btw: I wouldn’t own the 20.1’s either but they sounded much better than the 30.x’s.

I’m surprised to hear that my friends and I attended a 30.7 demo and we’re blown away by their sound. If I had the space and cash I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase them. I’ve found Wendell is always approachable and willing to spend time answering your question.

Another + for Johnny R at Audio Connection I purchased a used set of 3.7i from him.

I think Magnepan manufactures different models in cycles thus the wait time but it’s definitely worth it.

Has anyone heard the new x series vs the i ?

They're very much in business, but like many small manufacturers who focus on high value, moderate cost products, the emphasis is on R&D for new products and making the current ones at a pace that satisfies long term demand.  I'm on my 3rd set of Maggies.  Never had a problem getting answers from them for any questions I've had.  Always bought from individuals or a dealer in MD, as the local dealer doesn't really get the job done.
