Magico has released its A3 loudspeaker, which it claims brings together a bevy of technologies unheard-of at its price point including a fully braced anodised aluminium enclosure, a beryllium tweeter and drivers with carbon nanographene cones.
The Magico A3 is a floor standing, four-driver, three-way design housed in an enclosure is made entirely from 6061 T6 aircraft grade aluminium, that’s internally braced and finished externally with a brushed anodised aluminium ‘skin’.
The system uses two 178mm-diameter bass drivers that have Magico’s ‘Gen 8 Tec cones’, underhung neodymium magnets and 75mm titanium voice coils. The midrange driver is said to be newly developed by Magico for use in the A3 and has a 152mm diameter carbon fibre cone with a layer of XG Nanographene, an overhung neodymium-based motor system and a 75-mm diameter pure titanium voice coil.
The 28mm dome tweeter has a pure beryllium-diaphragm and is based on Magico’s M-Project tweeter. It has a neodymium motor system is encased in an improved back chamber, and according to Peter Mackay of Magico: ‘has our latest generation damping materials that facilitate ultra-low distortion, higher power handling, massive dynamic capabilities and extended linear voice coil movement.’
The A3’s crossover network uses state-of-the-art components from Mundorf of Germany and 24dB/octave slopes. ‘The Linkwitz-Riley filter maximises frequency bandwidth while preserving phase linearity and minimizing intermodulation distortion,’ said Mackay. ‘At long last Magico has developed a loudspeaker that’s obtainable for a wider audience,’ said Boris Granovsky, of Absolute Hi End, which distributes Magico in Australia. ‘Now more audiophiles can get into Magico at a lot more affordable price.’ In Australia, the Magico A3s will retail for around $14,000.
