"This is a genuine Hall of Famer, and
an easy pick for TAS 2021 Budget Product of the Year."

In Issue 107, JV (Jonathan Valin - the absolute sound) selected Magnepan's tall, skinny, three-way, full range, quasi-ribbon, dipole MG 1.7 floorstander as one of his favorite loudspeakers of the last 70 years.  High in resolution, low in distortion, with enough bass and treble (of superlatively high quality) to satisfy anyone save a headbanger, and a midrange that reproduces well-recorded voices and acoustic instruments with jaw-dropping realism, it is one of those "sweet-spot" wonders that pops up every decade or two.  The 1.7 gave you a generous taste of everything its bigger and more expensive Maggie brothers were capable of for a fraction of what you'd pay for the same wonderment in a top-line dynamic speaker.  In his review of Maggie's latest version of this classic, the 1.7i, long time TAS reviewer John Nork (who purchased the review pair) was in complete agreement.

John Nork 1.7i review












Magnepan MG1.7i Loudspeaker - Read More

"The Magnepan 1.71 is an exceptional loudspeaker, especially for its modest cost. It is a true high-end product that will be especially appreciated by those who know and treasure the beauty of live music. The use of the same improved drive elements throughout the frequency expanse works very well. The 1.7i also retains the spatial quality of live music. As Magnepan states, the company has produced a highly phase-coherent speaker without resorting to a complex crossover network (and it shows).

In summary, this is a device that does not get in the way of the music. Rather it retains most of the musical information passing through it. It is clear, detailed, and enjoyably realistic. The 1.7i affords a true high-end listening experience for far less cost than sonically competitive speakers. It is a gem and a real bargain. " - John Nork


2022 Golden Ear: Magnepan 1.7i Loudspeaker - Read More

"What I was unprepared for, however, was just how much better the “i” edition is from what I’d lived with for so long. In classic Magnepan fashion (via deadpan Marketing Director Wendell Diller), the technical differences between plain old 1.7 and 1.7i versions are…elusive. Both are three-way “quasi-ribbon” designs and so on, but the latest model is more coherent still, offers better bass, a richer midband, and even more of that disappearing act that we Maggie lovers are so drawn to. Moreover, these remain one of the finest values in audio. In fact, they are steals. " - Wayne Garcia

"How many ways to tell you about the personality, not of a person, but the Magnepan 1.7? Its greatest strength is its lack of personality, excellent coherence and low coloration. Every thing about it tells you everything you hear is the truth. In my room the 1.7 can be intimate or they can be an exciting and formidable presence easily able to take control of the listener and the listening space. Finally, I can only echo what others have said before me, the Magnepan 1.7 speakers are unique, an amazing performance, at $1995 nothing near this price can compare. Semper hi-fi " - Ron Nagle

"The Magnepan Magneplanar MG 1.6 speakers were excellent, but the 1.7’s are definitely an improvement, most noticeably in the output at the high end of the audible spectrum, but also with a tighter bass. At $2,000/pair, they represent one of the great values in the world of speakers. " - JOHN E. JOHNSON
