Magico has expanded its ‘entry level’ S- Series with the addition of the S3. This full range, floorstanding loudspeaker offers “cutting edge technology and unparalleled performance at its price”. According to Magico CEO and chief designer Alon Wolf, “By drawing from our technological well and in-house manufacturing capabilities, we are now able to deliver a remarkable value proposition in the S3, one which will become a new benchmark in its category.”
The S3 shares the engineering heritage of its two siblings, the S1 and S5, and sits squarely between them. As with all Magico loudspeakers it uses an acoustic suspension enclosure (infinite baffle), one whose further refinements include a sub-enclosure for its midrange. This polycarbonate enclosure utilizes a combination of advanced materials as well as a specially developed shape. The S3’s contoured extruded aluminum cabinet - the “world's largest monocoque enclosure” at 16" in diameter with 1/2" aluminum walls - minimizes diffraction effects, internal resonance, and damping requirements.
The S3 utilizes the same advanced MB30 Beryllium tweeter and MB390 midwoofer that Magico uses in the S5, coupled with two newly-developed 8” woofers. The US Retail Price of the Magico S3 starts at $22,600/pr. Delivery will begin in December 2013.
