Magico has re­leased its new S-7 three-way, floor stand­ing loud­speak­ers, which in­cor­po­rate new tweet­ers, new midrange driv­ers and new bass driv­ers de­rived from the M-Project loud­speaker. Although it’s a part of Magico’s S-Se­ries, the S-7 tow­ers over the other mod­els in the S-Se­ries range. Its 1.42-me­tre-high acous­tic sus­pen­sion en­clo­sures have curved alu­minium side pan­els that are ma­chined in-house at Magico from 12mm-thick alu­minium ex­tru­sions and braced in­ter­nally to min­imise res­o­nances. The S-7 uses three new 254mm-di­am­e­ter alu­minium-coned bass driv­ers with a claimed lin­ear ex­cur­sion of 15mm. ‘ The bas­ket, spi­der and voice-coil de­sign of the new bass driv­ers in the S-7 fol­low sim­i­lar de­sign prin­ci­ples as the bass driv­ers used in the M-Project loud­speaker,’ said Boris Gra­novsky, of Ab­so­lute HiEnd, which dis­trib­utes Magico in Australia. ‘ They have ex­tremely pow­er­ful mag­nets, ul­tra-stiff alu­minium cones and are ca­pa­ble of pro­duc­ing deep, pow­er­ful bass fre­quen­cies with such speed and ac­cu­racy that they can pro­duce clean and undis­torted sound pres­sure lev­els of up to 120dB at 50Hz at one me­tre.’ The 152-mm-di­am­e­ter midrange driver’s cone is made from a com­pound of Arkema multi-wall car­bon nan­otube and XG Sciences C-750 nanographene. Magico says the re­sult­ing cone is 20 per cent lighter and 300 per cent stiffer than the cone ma­te­ri­als it’s pre­vi­ously used in its midrange driv­ers. It has an un­der­hung neodymium mo­tor sys­tem with two ex­tra-large mag­nets that pro­vide an ul­tra-sta­ble mag­netic field for the voice-coil, which is wound from pure ti­ta­nium. The driver op­er­ates from a sub-en­clo­sure within the S-7 that’s made from the same pro­pri­etary poly­mer ma­te­rial that was first in­tro­duced in the Magico S-3. The S-7 uses a new 25mm-di­am­e­ter di­a­mond-coated beryl­lium di­aphragm tweeter that Magico says was pur­pose-built for the S-7. ‘ This new tweeter has ex­tra-long ex­cur­sion and uses a neodymium-based mo­tor sys­tem that is cus­tomised to match the sen­si­tiv­ity and power han­dling ca­pa­bil­i­ties of the S-7 while main­tain­ing ul­tra-wide dis­per­sion char­ac­ter­is­tics and ul­tra-low dis­tor­tion mea­sure­ments,’ Gra­novsky told Aus­tralian Hi-Fi Mag­a­zine, ‘ and the cross­over uses Magico’s ex­clu­sive el­lip­ti­cal sym­me­try cross­over topol­ogy that in­cludes state-of-the-art com­po­nents from Mun­dorf of Ger­many.’ For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, please con­tact Ab­so­lute HiEnd on (04) 8877 7999 or visit the web­site at www.ab­so­lute­
