Lunch followed by home visit to JBL guru of Hong Kong. It's been more than 7 or 8 years since my last visit to Mr. Lai, only to find his system tremendously improved now and ranking certainly among the cream of the crop within audiophile circles of Hongkong.

Electronic Guru, Thomas Mayer of Germany, was showing one of his latest line amp series last week at my audio room. Both inputs and outputs use balance sockets. A thrilling experience indeed!

Truly remarkable sound at rcwy’s 150 foot audio room. It has to be heard to believe!  
 
People usually think that the bigger the room, the bigger the sound stage. In general, however, it is quite the opposite. The core of this issue lies instead in the speaker placement as well as the way the room is fabricated, esp the dimension ratio and the right amount of sound treatment.  
 
Dinner with good friends, old and new, after audio session:-

State-of-the-art ultra low noise oscillator for the discerning. This is the kind of refinement you’ll get with the top model from the exD line of DACs if cost is none of your concern. With this NDK clock, the converter becomes a royal blood with manners virtually beyond reproach!

Quite incidentally, Nelson of YS Audio brought his friends to listen to my CAS, just in time to audition the latest upgrade of the now renowned eXD DAC. This new version virtually blew my old eXD away into obscurity!

Outlook is more or less the same, but the inside is certainly different. The new eXD at the left top corner.

Another audio session with new friends introduced by Eddie. Audiophiles who come to my place the first time are usually bewildered to find virtually no acoustic treatment and there is none of the popular tweaking gadgets used throughout my system. The room itself speaks for all!

I wouldn’t think the problem rests with the ribbon since the ribbon tweeter is always exposed. I suspect the glue whose chemical properties cause the ribbon to be oxidized.  
 
Anyway, I have the same conclusion as you do, i.e. to stay away from the current crop of Maggies until the quality issue can be resolved. The Apogee had similar quasi-ribbon drivers but they had no problem at all!

Hi limage,  
Thank you for pointing out, just cannot believe how short is the product life cycle on this new maggie under normal use. I also suspect that this is a design/production fault as the material should not be exposed in air.  
 
Well, I would say goodbye to maggie for now.

This is exactly the impending fear I have over the quasi-ribbon drivers. In the past, Magnepan used aluminium wires which are far more reliable and can be repaired rather easily. Now they change to ribbon which is well-nigh impossible to repair, despite its superlative response in speed.

William,  
 
It’s ribbon glued onto Mylar film. I am afraid it’s now beyond repair because of extensive corrosion.

Some pictures attached, wire still holding to the Mylar surface but the corrosion caused open circuit, would it take too much effort to re-wire?

Dear Maggie lovers,  
 
I am new to this forum, it is amazing to see many audiophiles with great knowledge and experience with Maggie in HK.  
 
I need help on repair my 1.7, stealer said it is beyond re-wire, the whole panel of one unit need to be replaced, anyone can help to assess the situation and repair it locally in HK? Much appreciate your input.

師傅, 雖然對20.7 麻煩多多, 打風落雨多過好天, 但交出水準時仍令人愛不釋手, 在溫哥華時听過30.7, 又何祗勝過20系一籌, 人生苦短, 真想博一博, 希望能去到另一境界!

Ivan To, a fervent and veteran MG20.1 user, came the second time to probe into the magic of room coupling effects. I took the opportunity to discuss with him the drastic differences possible with dipolar radiators when sitting on the opposite side of the room. In my present case, lows dived further down by almost 5 Hz and the front to back delineation of instruments and voices was simply smashing. The only drawback, it seemed, was a slightly impoverished mid bass.  
 
It’s a pity that the current crop of Magnepans seems to have suffered from quality control issues. I heard complaints from several new Maggie users who ran into trouble one way or the other, like ribbon failure or quasi-ribbon bass rattles. For the moment at least, I would hold back my decision to order the big panels.
