Magico M6: $270,000

Australian HIFI - - SOUNDBITES -

Magico has re­leased its M6, a three-way, five-driver floor-stand­ing loud­speaker it says es­tab­lishes a new pin­na­cle of en­gi­neer­ing and de­sign vi­sion at Magico. The Magico M6’s cab­i­net is a mono­coque en­clo­sure made from 12.5mm car­bon-fi­bre, a con­struc­tion tech­nique that Alon Wolf, of Magico, says in­creases the struc­tural strength-to-weight ra­tio by a fac­tor of 60, while re­duc­ing over­all weight by 50 per cent and yield­ing outer di­men­sions that are 30 per cent smaller without com­pro­mis­ing in­ter­nal vol­ume. Also, the curved in­te­rior and ex­te­rior walls min­imise in­ter­nal stand­ing waves and ex­ter­nal dif­frac­tion. The front baf­fle is made from alu­minium and braced by ten alu­minium ten­sion rods.

The tweeter in the M6 has a 28mm di­a­mond-coated beryl­lium di­aphragm and is claimed to be more ef­fi­cient than the tweeter used in Magico’s M-Project model. The 153mm midrange driver has a graphene-based cone ma­te­rial, an un­der­hung neodymium-based mo­tor sys­tem, a ti­ta­nium voice coil, and op­er­ates from a sub-en­clo­sure made of pro­pri­etary car­bon-fi­bre com­pos­ite that pro­vides an ideally damped en­vi­ron­ment to dis­perse in­ter­nal stand­ing waves. ‘ This is a brand-new driver for Magico, whose de­sign lever­ages an ex­tralarge mag­net and a top-sta­bil­is­ing mag­net to en­sure a per­fectly sta­bilised mag­netic field of 1.7 Tesla in a 15mm air gap,’ said Boris Gra­novsky, of Ab­so­lute Hi End, which dis­trib­utes Magico in Aus­tralia. ‘ The lat­est 3D laser scan­ning tech­niques were used to al­low for un­par­al­leled pre­ci­sion in assem­bly, en­sur­ing op­ti­mal be­hav­iour, min­i­mal dis­tor­tion and a re­duc­tion in non-pis­tonic mo­tion.’

Each of the three 267mm bass driv­ers in the Magico M6 has a multi-wall car­bon/nanographene cone that’s driven by a 127mm voice-coil for which Magico claims 25mm of lin­ear ex­cur­sion. The ti­ta­nium coil is driven by a rad­i­cal neodymium SD mag­net assem­bly. ‘ The se­cret to the high per­for­mance of th­ese driv­ers is that the iron around the coil is to­tally sat­u­rated, so there’s no in­duced flux and there­fore no eddy cur­rents,’ Gra­novsky told Aus­tralian Hi-Fi Mag­a­zine. ‘ Magico achieves near 90 per cent sat­u­ra­tion when the in­dus­try stan­dard is less than 20 per cent, so the in­duc­tance of the woofer is only 0.085mH. At 50Hz it can pro­duce 120dBSPL at one me­tre.’

Magico says the fre­quency re­sponse of the M6 ex­tends from 22Hz to 50kHz (±3dB), the sen­si­tiv­ity is 91dBSPL (at 1me­tre for a 2.83V in­put) and the im­ped­ance is 4Ω (nom­i­nal). The speak­ers mea­sure 1430×660×510mm (HDW) and weigh 177kg. Avail­able now, the Magico M6s sell for $270,000 per pair.
