Earlier this year Margico relased their latest loudspeaker, the A3, which is now the starting point of their range. This innovative speaker now makes Magico loudspeakers obtainable for a wider audience.

The A3 brings together a bevy of technologies unheard-of at its price point. We are proud to be showcasing this amazing speaker before anyone else in the UK. 

A fully braced and anodised aluminium enclosure, beryllium tweeter, carbon Nanographene cones, neodymium based motor systems and Magico's renowned elliptical crossover.

The A3’s massive sealed-enclosure is, like all Magicos, a tour-de-force of engineering. The enclosure is made entirely from 6061 T6 aircraft grade aluminium, identical materially to the enclosure developed for the Q Series. This braced, complex internal structure is finished externally with an elegant brushed anodized “skin”.

We recently tested out the A3 in combination with a Devialet 440 Pro amplifier, a combination which makes a lot of sense in terms of balance with the speakers available for £12,000 and the 440 Pro also at £12,000. 

Having played a wide variety of difference styles from classical to jazz to rock, it was clear that this is a system that delivers a well-paced and exciting sound.

The Devialet offers a lot of space to the music and the Magicos handle this excellently. For example on ‘Draw Your Swords’ by Angus & Julia Stone there was a fantastic sense of realism, the speakers disappeared and the stage was easy to imagine if you closed your eyes. 

The A3s are very revealing. A really good recording will sound breath taking on these speakers. They have solid and tight bass which goes very deep with a masterful dynamic range. They have an effortlessness about them which make them excel at almost every genre we threw at them. Perhaps the most interesting album we tried was Hans Zimmer’s soundtrack to the film Rush. The system perfectly captured the drama of the music with its scale and depth.

If you are looking for a system that will give you a fast, clean, well balanced sound that will make your favourite recordings shine, this is a great option for you. If you want something that will cover the cracks or give you added warmth perhaps a different match will be necessary. 

Demonstrations are now avialable to the public. Please contact us to arrange an appointment.
