Magico, a high-end loudspeaker manufactuer, has just announced their lastest loudspeaker, the S1. Following the recent introduction of the already-renowned S5, its smaller sibling, the S1, offers Magico performance at a price point never before attainable.
In 2004, the MINI, Magico’s first commercial product, set new benchmarks for a two driver sealed enclosure. In the eight years since, Magico has introduced a number of well-respected speaker products and the new S1 continues this legacy. Featuring a uniquely contoured cabinet drawing design cues from the MINI and M6, the S1 utilizes the world’s first monocoque 3/8″ thick, 12” diameter extruded aluminum loudspeaker enclosure, minimizing diffraction effects, internal resonance, and damping requirements. At only 9 inches deep and available in an array of Magico’s new M-COAT paint blends, the S1 provides great flexibility for room integration.
The floor-standing, two-way, S1 incorporates an entirely new 7” Magico Nano-Tec Midbass driver with the same beryllium tweeter featured in the S5, making it capable of astonishing output. The S1’s new 7” Midbass dual-neodymium underhung motor system with pure titanium voice coil-former is powerfully efficient and low in distortion. As with all Magico drivers, the latest custom computer simulations are used to optimize electromagnetic and thermal behavior.
