Magnat Signature Edelstein: Premium Sound in a Petite Package

German audio brand Magnat has introduced a new contender in the world of premium audio equipment: the Magnat Signature Edelstein standmount speakers. These speakers, described as "ultra-compact" and "state-of-the-art," aim to provide exceptional audio performance in a modern and stylish package. 

With a focus on delivering high-quality sound across the entire audio spectrum, the Magnat Signature Edelstein speakers present themselves as a compelling alternative to established brands in the audio industry.

The Magnat Signature Edelstein speakers feature a two-way reflex design that incorporates innovative technology for enhanced performance. At the heart of these speakers is a 1-inch dual-compound fabric dome tweeter, featuring an extra-wide surround known as the "Spherical Wave-Guide." This design is intended to disperse high frequencies above 20kHz more effectively while minimizing vibrations within the tweeter itself.

The 4.5-inch mid/bass driver in these speakers is lauded by Magnat for its distortion-free audio reproduction. The driver's layered 3L Sandwich Diaphragm construction, composed of ceramic, magnesium, and aluminum layers, is topped off with an inverted dust cap. This configuration should ensure rigidity and internal damping while a Kapton voice coil guarantees stable current delivery. The driver is housed within a non-magnetic aluminum die-cast basket for added stability.

One of the notable features of the Magnat Signature Edelstein speakers is their premium crossover design. This crossover is constructed using high-end components and incorporates a low-impedance bass-midrange section that aims to reduce electrical loss. The internal oxygen-free copper cabling ensures pristine signal transmission, while the speaker terminals are milled aluminum with gold-plated connectors.

The speakers boast a sensitivity rating of 90dB, making them easy to pair with external amplifiers. Their frequency response range is specified as 45 – 38,000 Hz (-6dB), with a broader frequency range of 34 – 50,000 Hz. These specifications indicate that the Signature Edelstein speakers could cater to a wide range of audio requirements, particularly in smaller spaces.

Magnat has not only focused on technical excellence but also paid attention to the aesthetics of the Signature Edelstein speakers. The MDF cabinets come with a brushed solid aluminum front plate, offering a sleek and modern appearance. Customers have the choice of two finishes: silk-matte black or satin white.

Each speaker features a dual-layer base plate constructed from acrylic glass and solid aluminum, aimed at minimizing vibrations and enhancing overall stability. Additionally, the speakers come with detachable grilles to protect the front panels from damage.

These speakers are intended to cater to audiophiles looking for a high-performance audio solution that doesn't compromise on style or compactness. They are well-suited for near-field listening in smaller rooms but should also be capable of delivering impressive audio in larger spaces.

The Magnat Signature Edelstein speakers offer an enticing combination of cutting-edge technology, premium components, and a modern design. While they aim to establish themselves as a competitive option in the audio market, only time will tell how they fare against established brands in the industry. For those seeking a compact yet high-performance audio solution, the Magnat Signature Edelstein speakers are certainly worth considering.
