US manufacturer Magico has used Munich's HIGH END 2019 Show to release a new Magico A1 two-way Bookshelf/stand mount loudspeaker with a carbon/nanographene bass/midrange driver and a Beryllium dome tweeter in a fully braced aluminium enclosure.

The 165mm diameter bass/midrange driver has a carbon fibre cone with a layer of nanographene, which Peter Mackay of Magico says ‘provides optimal stiffness to weight ratio and an ideal damping factor.’ The motor system uses larger-than-usual magnets to ensure a stabilized magnetic field for the 39mm diameter titanium voice coil.
The tweeter in the new A1 is exactly the same one used in the Magico A3, a Beryllium-domed 28mm model with a neodymium magnet. ‘This has proved itself as a great-sounding tweeter,’ said Boris Granovsky, of Absolute HiEnd, which distributes Magico in Australia. ‘The entire motor system is encased in an improved back chamber with our latest generation damping materials that facilitate ultra-low distortion, higher power handling, massive dynamic capabilities, and extended linear voice coil movement.’
The cabinet of the Magico A1 enclosure measures 397×216×305mm (HWD) and is constructed from 9mm 6061 T6 aircraft grade aluminium that’s finished with brushed black anodising. ‘An innovative internal bracing technique along with the most advanced damping materials makes the sealed enclosure incredibly rigid and free of unwanted mechanical resonances,’ says Mackay.
The Magico A1 has a rated sensitivity of 85dBSPL, a nominal impedance of 4Ω. When this model becomes available in Australia later this year, Absolute HiEnd estimates that it will sell for around $11,850 per pair (RRP).
