Great thing about line source speakers is that side wall, floor & ceiling reflections are far less worrisome.
Looks like your room is tailored for the Maggies. Congrats

Most speaker sound fine in my room, not perfect but easy to get the sound I want after little adjustment.

Picking up the discussion.

A long time ago, I had the SMGc's, but foolishly sold them. I've wanted to get a pair again, and some 10-12 years ago I walked into Absolute Sound in Adelphi. I was quoted almost S$9,000 for the small 5.1 model, meaning 6 panels).

I walked out because it didn't make sense. From what I've read and heard, they seem to be the same now.

I wonder if it's possible to do an MO, for say the 0.X or 1.X models.

Problem with Magnaplan is after a few year it need to send back agent for recondition , if buy direct from US shipping back to US might be a problem , I not sure whether TAS technician willing to help re-glue the speaker or not if it wasn’t buy from them..

I heard TAS told me the 3.7i do not require recondition because not the panel is glue at both side of the voice coil instead of only one side like older model, but I doubt so because I did hear some sign of distortion on a pair of used 3.7 I interested to buy before I order the 3.7i....anyway I ask before Hong kong 3.7i is about 8% cheaper than Singapore at last year NOV when TAS retail price is 9k plus , but beginning of this years TAS increased the retail price of 3.7i and now it cost $10k plus , I think the different is even more.

This pair sound much better just open box, because the Color is more matching to the environment 🤣🤣🤣🤣

Just kidding, at least I already know where is the best position and did some mod on the base before hand, my pair can screw in spike , originally cannot.😬

What the reviewer comment on the LRS can be use to describe my 3.7i except I believe the high / Low frequency and maximum SPL in another class .......

Extremely happy for my 3.7i’s sound,  except now waiting for the 3rd pair replacement......yes , an Aluminium trim pair will be replaceing my black ork trim pair in one month time....

good service Absolute sound and their Maggie dealer AudioRev, thumb up.
