New Magico M2 speakers

M2: SRP US $ 56,000 /pair
M2 MPOD 3-Pt Stand: SRP US $ 7,600 /pair (optional)

Magico is revealing the all new M2 which expands the M-Series product lineup and features many ground-breaking engineering designs distilled from the M6 and M3. Here is the complete info…


“Our materials science research in the properties and applications of carbon allows the M2 to feature a new monocoque enclosure. Similar in construction technique introduced in the M6, it is formed using multiple layers of carbon fiber adding up to a 3/8” thickness. Similar to the external shell of an F-35 fighter jet, this enclosure construction compared to machined or extruded aluminum parts increases the structural strength-to-weight ratio by a factor of 60, while reducing overall weight by 50% and yielding outer dimensions that are 30% smaller without compromising internal volume. The curved interior and exterior walls minimize internal standing waves and eliminate external diffractions.


The M2 incorporates a 28-mm Diamond coated Beryllium dome tweeter with optimized geometry. The Diamond coating on the Beryllium dome increases the stiffness without adding the extra weight of a pure Diamond dome and offers a near perfect stiffness to weight ratio that is unmatched in the industry. This revolutionary tweeter design provides extra-long excursion movement and uses a customized neodymium- based motor system that matches the sensitivity and power handling capabilities of the M2 while maintaining ultra-wide dispersion characteristics and ultra-low distortion measurements.


Magico is the world’s first audio product manufacturer to utilize graphene in the development of a radically new and advanced loudspeaker cone design. Graphene has many extraordinary properties and is rated to be 100 times stronger than the strongest steel. The newly designed Magico six-inch midrange driver and seven- inch bass driver cones found in the M2 are both manufactured using Multi-Wall carbon XG Nanographene with a new ultra-stiff proprietary carbon weave which is 20% lighter and 300% stiffer than cone materials used in previous Magico product offerings. The midrange driver features an underhung neodymium-based motor system that uses two extra-large magnets which provide an ultra-stabilized magnetic field for the pure Titanium voice coil to operate within. This radical new driver design sets a new industry benchmark for performance and the minimization of total harmonic distortion.


A purpose built sub-enclosure formed of a proprietary polymer houses the midrange driver to optimize the control and articulation of mid-band frequencies and provides protection from the massive back wave pressure of the bass drivers. Midrange sub-enclosures using different shapes, sizes and materials have been implemented throughout the history of Magico 3-way loudspeaker designs.


The dual bass drivers in the M2 are vertically aligned to achieve ideal room integration and reproduce the lowest registers of bass frequency with speed and accuracy. Combined, the bass drivers are optimized for minimal music related distortions in the frequency and time domain using the latest state-of-the-art FEA simulation of acoustics, mechanics, electromagnetic and thermal behavior. The testing process is now completed on a single platform allowing optimization levels to be taken to a higher level.


An internal three-axis matrix framework along with three tension rods running front to back internally, contribute to an extremely rigid enclosure which eliminates unwanted resonances and colorations, allowing all drivers to perform with stunning resolution and dynamics. All four drivers in the M2 are acoustically integrated using Magico’s exclusive Elliptical Symmetry Crossover topology that includes state-of-the-art components from Mundorf of Germany. The MPOD 3-Pt stand contributes to the overall sonic performance by converting mechanical energy to heat through the science of constrained layer damping, while providing ideal coupling to the floor.”

Evoke is for you. It’s for living rooms. Home cinema rooms. Listening rooms. Even bedrooms. It’s serious hi-fi, everywhere.

This brand-new speaker range takes advanced technology directly from our top-of-the-range speakers – including finishes, driver technology and design. And that means each of the five Evoke models can vibe with you, grow with you, and stay with you – however you listen.

Every single part has been looked at from the ground up. Every driver has been optimised in Dynaudio’s state-of-the-art Jupiter measuring lab. And every finish has been painstakingly formulated and executed to reflect those on our most exclusive speakers.

Music should last a lifetime. With Evoke, it will.

A brand-new Dynaudio speaker range
Creating an entirely new family of loudspeakers is something our designers and engineers relish. At the start the whole process is a sandbox – one that’s full of out-there ideas, wishlists and ingenious solutions that had been percolating in brains and notebooks.

And because they have four decades of established research and legendary products to draw on, our engineers know they’re on pretty much the right track before they even put the first prototype together.

With Evoke, they landed right in the Goldilocks zone. After months of intense R&D it became a five-strong family of speakers. All that experience meant the team could combine cutting-edge technology directly from the Contour and all-new Confidence ranges – not to mention ultra-high build and finish quality and traditional, elegant cabinets designed to look great in any listening environment – with exceptional value for money.

Listen to your favourite album for the first time. Again.
We created Evoke because we want everyone to be able to enjoy genuine hi-fi – the thing we all aspire to – without having to rearrange rooms, replace much-loved equipment, or agonise over the price.

We created Evoke for the people who agonise over what to listen to next.

And when they finally decide, we know they’ll hear something new in their favourite music. It could be the tiniest sound of a hand moving up the neck of a nylon-string guitar in an LA recording studio, or the shuffle of a cello player’s feet on-stage at the Berliner Philharmonie. It might be a backing vocal that suddenly makes that pre-chorus sparkle, or that extra bit of heavy-metal punch that makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up (and sets off the neighbour’s dog).

Listen to Evoke and you’ll rediscover everything you love about music. Use them in stereo. Use them as part of a multi-channel home cinema system. Add one of our optional subwoofers. The family is designed to grow and change with you.

“I didn’t know there was a tambourine part in that song”
How do we do it? Experience, technology, intensive analysis in our Jupiter measuring facility… and good, old-fashioned listening. Hundreds of hours of it.

The entire range uses trickle-down technology from our top-of-the-line loudspeakers.

Take the Cerotar tweeter, which makes its debut in Evoke. It’s a brand-new, ground-up design based on our award-winning Esotar Forty anniversary tweeter and the mighty Esotar3 found in the new, money-no-object Confidence series. Underneath the 28mm soft-dome diaphragm sits the Hexis inner dome (something you’ll currently only find in Confidence). This refines the airflow behind the tweeter’s playing surface to smooth-out its frequency response and eliminate unwanted resonances. Behind it all, the new motor system uses strontium carbonate Ferrite+ ceramic magnets to further increase tweeter sensitivity.

It all took a very long time (and more than one effervescent ‘discussion’) to refine and tune the Cerotar. But we think you’ll agree it was time well spent. Its developments give you a detailed and natural high frequency response that’s smooth enough to take you through many albums’ worth of music in one sitting without feeling tired. Exactly as it should be.

Ace of bass
The Esotec+ woofers use MSP (Magnesium Silicate Polymer) in their diaphragms – just like all Dynaudio speakers have done since we started in 1977.

The versions used in Evoke 10, 20, 30 and 25C use new surrounds and improved Ferrite+ magnet systems to extend their throw, their frequency response and their low-frequency dynamics – all while maintaining stellar midrange performance. And the 18cm driver in Evoke 50 borrows technology from both the Contour and Confidence ranges to deliver eyebrow-raising low-frequency dynamics and timing.

You’ll hear that as full, precise bass with all the clarity you could want. Perfect for anything from intimate classical music to full-throttle rock or dance.

The Evoke 50’s midrange driver is directly derived from the design developed for the renowned Contour 60. It uses a powerful neodymium magnet, plus lightweight materials (including an aluminium voice-coil) specifically optimised for midrange duties.

It’s all marshalled by high-grade crossovers between the tweeter, midrange and low-frequency drivers.

But we can’t perfect all that without some seriously long listening sessions. And that, for us, is the key: we listen like you do. No song is off-limits. Nothing is too cheesy, or too high-brow. We love music, so there’s no other way we can design our speakers other than for fellow music-lovers.

What will music sound like in 30 years? Awesome.
Evoke is built to last. Each of the simple, elegant cabinets (themselves the result of months of painstaking prototyping, refinement and care), is available in four finishes: Black High Gloss, White High Gloss, Walnut Wood and Blonde Wood.

New lacquering techniques mean the gloss versions have a stunning, almost glass-like finish, while the wood versions have open veneers for a warm, natural feeling. And they’ll only look better over time.

Our designers wanted Evoke to be the kind of speaker you take with you from student residence, to apartment, to house. The kind of speaker you’ll rediscover your favourite music with – and then pass it on.

YG Acoustics INVINCIBLE の詳細発表!!!

海外ニュース速報 [World] 新製品速報

YG Acoustics

InVincible Signature Red Edition
InVincible 21.2 (上下2ユニット)
InVincible 21.1 (下1ユニット)

InVincible™ is the world’s first hyper-high-end sub-bass speaker. It was created
to solve a specific problem: owners of the world’s finest flagship speakers often
felt that adding a subwoofer to their system caused more drawbacks than
improvements. YG Acoustics™ addressed the issue by creating a truly extreme
solution, a no-holds-barred assault on everything deemed possible in the
sub-bass realm. InVincible – pure authority, handmade in U.S.A.

Innovations include, first and foremost, the largest BilletCore™ driver ever made
at 53 cm diameter (21”). The cone is machined from a massive 30 kg (66 lb) slab
of aircraft-grade aluminum. When finished it weighs 411 grams (14.5 oz). The
basket is also CNC-machined in-house, then precisely assembled from 238 parts
using lab-grade alignment and tolerances.

The dedicated built-in amplifier boasts up to 6,000 watts of RMS power for
unrestricted dynamics. In a world filled with offshore-outsourced electronics, this
amplifier stands out by incorporating a real high-end, custom, U.S.-made class D

The unique layout sports dual, opposing-yet-tilted drivers. It combines the
freedom from vibration of a push-push setup, with the ease of room-integration
typically associated with front-firing subwoofers. The “flipped” arrangement, with
enclosures on both ends rather than in-between the woofers, minimizes their
spacing thus further easing room-placement.

The cabinet is precisely CNC-machined from solid aluminum billet. Like YG
Acoustics™’ flagship Sonja™ XV and Sonja™ 2 series, its construction is a “box
within a box”, to minimize vibration. A sealed alignment eliminates port-issues
and the time-delays associated therewith. FocusedElimination™ is used to
minimize loss.

The built-in DSP crossover offers extensive options for matching with most
high-end speakers. Furthermore, when mating InVincible™ with a YG
Acoustics™ speaker, the guesswork is entirely eliminated. InVincible™ is
pre-programmed for precise matching with any current YG Acoustics™ speaker
and many legacy models, using a foolproof process inspired by the famous
DualCoherent™ technology.

McIntoshから、新スピーカー「 XRT1.1K 」登場!!

海外ニュース速報 [World] 新製品速報

McIntosh XRT1.1K

SRP in the USA $60,000 USD and £59,995 in the UK.

Following in the footsteps of the larger-than-life XRT2.1K is the equally impressive but more accessibly sized XRT1.1K Loudspeaker. Featuring a 1,200 Watt power rating, the full range XRT1.1K is an exceptional speaker in its own right. With its more user-friendly size that is 14″ (35 cm) shorter and 173 lbs (78 kg) lighter than the XRT2.1K, the XRT1.1K can comfortably fit in a wider variety of home environments. While not as large as the XRT2.1K, the XRT1.1K is still an extraordinary loudspeaker that produces a powerful aural experience and sonic performance that can easily fill a room with astonishing musicality.

The ported, 4-way XRT1.1K speaker uses our line array design to yield an even and wide sound field, producing exceptional stereo imaging in nearly all listening positions. With our line array speaker design, listeners closer to the XRT1.1K will not be overpowered by extremely high volumes as they will only be on axis to a portion of the drivers; listeners farther away will be on axis to more of the drivers and will be able to easily hear the music without any large drop off in sound level or quality.

The XRT1.1K uses a total of 70 individual drivers consisting of (4) 6.5” woofers, (2) 6.5” low frequency midranges, (24) 2” upper frequency midranges and (40) ¾” tweeters. The woofer and low frequency midrange drivers that were first designed for the XRT2.1K have been incorporated into the XRT1.1K. They are housed in the large bass enclosure cabinet located behind the line array. Their diaphragms are extremely stiff yet lightweight and their long throw design produces amazing bass extension. In front of the bass cabinet is the line array where the upper frequency midranges and tweeters, which were also first developed for the XRT2.1K, are found.

Utilizing capacitors and inductors with low loss and high current capacity, the crossover network is engineered to ensure an even frequency response over the entire audible range. The type of inductor used in each section of the network has been specially chosen for high linearity, even at high power levels. This prevents distortion of the music at any frequency. The network also employs self-resetting high current PTC type fuses to provide an extra measure of protection for the drivers.

Like the XRT2.1K, the XRT1.1K looks as striking as it sounds. The bass cabinet is finished with 7 layers of high gloss piano black paint and has touches of brushed and black aluminum. The line array features hints of the classic McIntosh front panel with a black center section and silver trim. It is suspended in front of the bass cabinet via steel spiders that are inspired by modern skyscraper construction; they are capped with magnetic covers that mimic the look of McIntosh control knobs. The speaker grilles feature black knit cloth with high gloss trim; if you prefer to have the drivers visible, the grilles are easily removed via their magnetic fasteners. The base plate is made of machined aluminum and glass. It has 4 adjustable feet that allow the speaker to make perfect contact with your floor, thus eliminating a possible source of distortion or vibration.

Your speaker cables are securely attached via our gold-plated Solid Cinch™ speaker binding posts that prevent the cables from coming loose. Separate pairs of binding posts are available for the mid/high, low and subwoofer frequencies to allow for tri-amping or tri-wiring if so desired. The McIntosh logo on the base can be illuminated with the use of our Power Control technology found in our amplifiers, preamplifiers, integrated amplifiers and other products.
