If the S5 has any of the DNA of the stupendous Q1 monitor I heard in Denver last month, this should be another spectacular success for Magico.
Magico man, Irv Cross sent Audiophilia the following release in preparation for 2012 CES.
‘After an incredible 5 years since the Magico V3’s first release, we are excited to introduce its successor, the S5. This three-way, four-driver floor standing loudspeaker borrows heavily from the peerless Q-Series’ technological arsenal and employs new manufacturing techniques to create what is the most value-laden Magico loudspeaker yet. Among the highlights of the S5 are its availability in a range of colors (in addition to our classic hard anodized black finish) and a removable grille – a first for Magico.
Launching the S5 confirms Magico’s commitment to uncompromising quality, design, and performance to create yet another loudspeaker that is undoubtedly Magico. We are proud to welcome the S5 to our incomparable line of outstanding loudspeakers. The S5 will be on display at CES 2012 in the Magico Suite at The Venetian, Suite 35-209. We invite you to visit us there to experience the latest addition to the Magico family.’
Listen at your peril. And take your chequebook.
