Nobody out there has heard both the Magico Q 1 and the C1.1 ?

Would be interested in your impressions.

I have just auditioned both the c1.1 as well as the Q1. Both has it's own pros and cons but my preference goes towards the c1.1

The Magico Q1 can literally disappear, in the sense that the speakers box cannot be felt when I'm listening. The build is very solid too.

For c1.1, the music is very expansive or I call it grand that will fill the whole room. Although the bass can't go deep, it can be strong. The soundstage is very wide and the imaging is very pin point. The high, mid and low are well separated and it's not muddled.

Prices are very wide apart as well with c1.1 to be much cheaper.

My own perceptions for these 2 speakers.

interesting.. raidho with chord set up..

virtueblue, i think most speakers can achieve the grand expansive sound when bottlenecks are cleared. though of course better speakers will make the boundaries wider..

whether the speaker box disappears or not usually has to do with how you set up in your room.
not sure if you heard sky audio's small set up yesterday at the hifi show with the <$1k tiny bookshelf, as a good example of this.

Thanks virtue blue,

Any significant differences between these 2 in terms of transparency, detail, midrange warmth/liquidity, speed ? 

If both were priced the same, would you still consider c1.1 as being your preferred speaker ?

@Quest, yes I heard Sky Audio's ALR Jordon small speaker set up and I must say it was very well set up. Although I think it's a benefit if you can achieve very wide soundstage, to me it's not the only thing I'm looking out for.

I'm looking more into neutrality, transparency as well as dynamics and details which to me, c1.1 has an edge over the Q1.

In terms of midrange, I feel that Q1 is a bit more laid back especially in terms of vocal. As for speed they are relatively fast. On the c1.1 I clearly hear the difference when it was switched from 1 amplifier to another.

Hopefully I did answer your question, @bro pink panda.

And yes I will still prefer the c1.1 even if they are priced the same.

Thanks bro virtueblue,

That's a high recommendation for the  c1.1  esp with Q1 costing a few grand more  !

Well I'll say that different people have different taste and preferences. I like the Lenehan Audio ML2 Reference as well and that is a pair of speakers that I'll give very high points as well.

Probably these 2 pair of speakers are the best at their price point. At least to my limited knowledge of bookshelf speakers in the market.

Interesting comments from Jonathan Valin about the C-1.1 and C-4.1.

Seems Magico is no longer his reference and the Q5's have been sent home....
