Mini Maggie

Yes, the Mini Maggie System is essentially a 3.7 in miniature. We prefer that you not think of it as a “computer speaker”. (And it wasn’t made in China). The Mini Maggie System is the world’s first full-range dipole speaker system that will sit on (and under) your desk. The Mini Maggie (satellite) is essentially a miniaturized version of the 3.7 midrange and tweeter.

You have read the reviews, but maybe you do not have the space or the budget for our new 3.7.

Got any room on your desk? Got a very small room? How about a miniature 3.7?

The Maggie Woofer (DWM) is a small section out of the 20.1 bass driver that sits under your desk in the foot well. Together, it is very much like a 3.7—up close and personal.

Consumer discuss the Mini Maggie System in a chat room–

http://www.computeraudiophile.com/content/User-Review-New-Mini-Maggie-System

For Christmas gift recommendations, Steve Guttenberg said– “The Mini (Maggie) is, hands down, the best-sounding desktop speaker you can buy.” (“Awesome-sounding audio gift ideas”, Dec. 17, 2011)

The Mini Maggie System was originally designed to be a miniature 3.7 on your desk. But, we were pleasantly surprised how well it works in a small room (especially when used with two Maggie Woofers).

Your dealer may not have a sound room that is similar to your small room. Auditioning the Mini Maggie System in a larger room will only give you a general idea of the system’s sonic capability. You may need to hear it in your home to fully appreciate why these reviewers were so impressed.
If you are familiar with Maggies, note that the Mini Maggie System is a different concept (near-field speaker) than any previous Magneplanar models. Some precautions should be taken. Because your desk is a known acoustical environment for us to design around (unlike your sound room), we know how the Mini Maggie System will sound on your desk. (Note–These reviewers tested it as a desktop system in a 10×12 foot office.) It is almost impossible to set it up wrong as a desktop system. But, a woofer/satellite system is another matter.

We want happy customers because referrals and word-of-mouth are our best advertising. Before we began the MMG program, we heard dire predictions that customers would not be successful in setting up a little dipole speaker. We were told we would get many of them back as a result. It didn’t happen. A very low percentage of MMGs come back and the MMG became our most effective advertising program. We are also confident if you hear the Mini Maggie System under the right conditions, you’ll be impressed.

With a suggested USA retail of $1490 for the 3-piece system, we readily agree that it is rather expensive for a “computer speaker”. But, if Chris Martens is right and it is “The World’s Best Desktop Speaker System”, then it is another great buy from Magnepan. Before you will believe that, you will need to hear it in an environment for which it was intended—and maybe that is in your home.

We are frequently asked if the Mini Maggie System can be used in lieu of one of our larger models. Yes, if certain precautions are taken. There is a good reason why line-source drivers are big. We suggest that you view the Mini Maggie System as a solution to a installation dilemma—especially well-suited for near-field listening in a small room. The Mini Maggie System may do an amazing job in some larger rooms–especially when used with two DWM woofers. But, we don’t want unhappy customers if it turns out that your particular installation or room acoustics are not compatible with a Mini Maggie System. “Buyer’s remorse” is bad for business.

The link below has superb instructions for those that are considering using the Mini Maggie System as a woofer/satellite system in a medium/small room. We couldn’t have done better if we had written it ourselves. So, consider it as our set-up manual.

If you like zany humor, you have something in common with Magnepan’s distributor in Australia.
