LAST CHANCE TO OWN MAGICO Q1 MINI MONITORS

Magico has announced it will soon cease production of its famed Q1 2-way stand mount loudspeaker.

Held in high regard by both discerning music lovers and reviewers alike, the Q1 will take on 'hall of fame' status in Magico's stable and was considered ahead of its time when first released in 2010.

Magico will complete one final production run telling its distributors around the world to secure any orders prior to August 31st, 2018. So if you've ever wanted to own the Q1 this will be your very last opportunity.

Magico's Q1 is considered by many as a benchmark in audio reproduction.

The Absolute Sound magazine said in its 2011 review:

For listeners in small-to-medium-sized rooms who can’t house big boxes or large panels that clutter up the décor, or for classical/jazz/acoustic-pop music lovers in any size room who want very close to the ultimate in transparency, resolution, and refinement at much less than a Q3/Q5 price, the Q1 would definitely be the Magico ticket I’d ride.

One of the pillars of Magico's success in loudspeaker design has been its ability to control vibration through damping and complex internal bracing. You only need a quick look at the exploded drawings of any Magico loudspeaker to understand the importance this Northern Californian designer and manufacturer places in this area of design.

If somehow you haven't heard Magico's Q1 in its lifespan, the good news is there's still time. Drop into Audio Reference in Auckland, have a listen, and if like many discerning audiophiles around the world you're simply won over then get your order in before the end of the month.

Magico Q1 2-Way Mini Monitors sell in New Zealand from $44,995 /pair with matching stands.
