Magico Introduces the Flagship Q7 Mk II Speaker

By |


Magico-Q7-MkII.jpgMagico has announced its newest flagship speaker, the Q7 Mk II. The updated Q7 includes improvements to the tweeter, midrange, and crossover, incorporating technologies that appeared in Magico's limited-edition M-Project. Magico speakers generally fall in the "if you have to ask" price range, and the Q7 Mk II is no exception, carrying an MSRP of $229,000/pair. Magico is offering an upgrade path for owners of the current Q7 model for $44,000/pair.

From Magico
With their continued passion and commitment to excellence, Alon Wolf and his team of engineers are pleased to announce the new Q7 Mk II loudspeaker. In addition to the excitement of this new product launch, Magico is also making available an upgrade path for current Q7 owners.

The new Q7 Mk II loudspeaker was inspired by some of the new technologies we unveiled in the limited-edition M-Project. Key elements of the M-Project design will now be incorporated into the new Q7 Mk II, which results in significant improvements to the overall sound performance. Notable changes are found in the tweeter, midrange, and crossover. These improvements will ensure the Q7 Mk II remains Magico's supreme accomplishment, and the company's flagship model.

TWEETER highlights
The Q7 Mk II incorporates a new, more efficient version of the revolutionary tweeter found in the M-Project. A 28mm diamond-coated beryllium diaphragm with optimized geometry, created using state-of-the-art finite-element-analysis modeling tools, brings the Q7 Mk II's high-frequency reproduction one step closer to perfection. This was achieved by skillfully leveraging beryllium's physical properties: the new tweeter is closer to the theoretical ideal, yet without gaining the extra weight normally associated with diamond's specific gravity. This new technology enabled us to increase the dome diameter to 28mm (vs. the previous 26mm), improving many aspects of performance while enabling even greater power handling. This new technology, combined with a new motor system and new acoustically improved back chamber, results in the lowest distortion measurements possible today in a high-frequency transducer.

MIDRANGE highlights
The Q7 Mk II will have a new 6-inch-diameter midrange driver that features a new Graphene-based cone material from Magico. This new cone is 30 percent lighter and 300 percent stiffer than its predecessor. This is the first commercial use of such an advanced composite. The driver utilizes an underhung neodymium-based motor system with an extra-large magnet and a top stabilizing magnet to ensure a perfectly stabilized magnetic field of 1.7 Tesla in a 15mm air gap, culminating with a pure vented titanium voice coil. The latest 3D laser scanning techniques were used to allow for unparalleled precision in assembly, ensuring optimal behavior in each driver's frequency range while reducing non-pistonic motion and minimizing distortion components. The midrange driver has a +/-6mm of stabilized excursion rate at very high sensitivity, enabling 120 dB (at one meter) of distortion-free playback in the midrange frequencies.

CROSSOVER highlights
The Q7 Mk II will include the latest state-of-the-art parts from Mundorf of Germany, including the new, amazing, MCap Supreme Evo capacitors.

Q7 Mk II UPGRADE highlights
The Q7 Mk II upgrade path includes a new tweeter, new midrange, and new crossover. The faceplate requires re-machining to accommodate the new, larger-sized tweeter.

The Q7 Mk II is our finest achievement, a technical triumph that fully expresses the ultimate passion and capabilities of Magico. We believe that the Q7 Mk II defines our commitment to technically and artistically redefining the genre, and will provide music lovers with an unlimited and unedited space within which to experience sound like never before.
