Magnepan MG3.6

The MG3.6 is the recent successor to that highly acclaimed MG3.5. The MG3.6 is a 3-way system with a low mass, line-source midrange and a true ribbon tweeter. The bass driver has 537 square inches of radiating area.

The MG3.6 boasts a larger, improved midrange than it’s award wining predecessor which allows a lower crossover point between the bass and midrange, resulting in greater clarity and definition. In addition, the midbass dynamic “slam” of the MG3.6 has been improved.

Description

Since the introduction in 1983, the MG3 series of Magneplanars has earned a reputation as the most successful high-end, esoteric loudspeaker on the market. Numerous critics over the years have written of the product’s advanced speaker technology combined with reliable, no-hassle performance.

Compare the MG3.6 against $10,000 dynamic speakers. In the areas of inner detail, depth, and the illusion of “you are there,” the MG3.6 proves that spending more money doesn’t always get better results.
Sometimes you just need a better idea.

The Magnepan ’3′ series of loudspeakers has had a long, successful career as a line of premier High End esoteric loudspeakers because they not only perform, but they represent ‘real value’. The most popular ‘High End Loudspeaker of all time’ is also a real value in a field dominated by ‘over the top’ performers.

The most recently retired version of this family, the MG3.5R was selected by The Academy for the Advance of High End Audio as the:

“Best Value in Loudspeakers” for 1997.

The Absolute Sound’s Harry Pearson awarded the MG3.6 the 1999 ‘Golden Ear Award’ claiming roughly,

The MG 3.6, along with the MG 1.6 represent the years biggest thrill.
We know MG3.6 will prove to be a worthy successor to the Magneplanar MG3 series, and its increased performance makes it an better value than ever before.

Stereophile’s by Brian Damkroger said this about the MG3.6 in August 2000

Taken on its own, however, the Magnepan Magneplanar MG3.6/R is a sensational speaker and, at $5,000/pair, very reasonably priced. In some respects it’s the best speaker I’ve heard period. Even in the areas where it’s perhaps not the very best, it’s awfully close -even when the very best is several times more expensive. Some speakers I admire, some I like … the Magnepan MG3.6/R, I think I’ll keep. Very highly recommended!

The MG3.6 has optional bi-amplification and bi-wire capability.
