Replacing an iconic and revolutionary product is as much an exercise in understaning human emotion as it is in engineering. For any new generation of products, in addition to being compared to its predecessor y actual performance, there is a need to contend with the intense feelings of witnessing the introduction of a loudspeaker so far ahead of its time that it redefines a genre. Today, the Mini II stands within the high-end as a classic, its influence rising far above the resulting industry disquiet.
For Magico, it marks the starting point of an even greater pursuit. As in most products, addressing problems with more precision allows us to carefully consider a broader range of demands. In the Q1, compromises of form factor, mass, power requirments, and versatility were not necessary due to eliminating inefficiencies in common problem solving design principles. The outcome is a compact, convertible stand-mounted/booksheld loudspeaker with explosive, true full-range performance. It is the 2-way monitor that has never before been built, by out company or any other. For many speaker connoisseurs, Magico’s now legendary Mini II was perhaps the finest standmount loudspeaker ever made.
So, when it came to designing a replacement, the company’s engineers knew they had to deliver something truly special. Without question, they have succeeded: ladies and gentlemen, we bring you the magnificent Magico Q1. It was clear from the outset that Magico would base its new standmount design on its unique Q platform, the result of meticulous research that had already yielded the peerless Q5 and Q3 floortsanders. Just like its larger siblings, the Q1 incorporates Magico’s brilliant MBe-1 tweeter with its Beryllium dome, plus the company’s proprietary seven-inch Nano-Tech mid/bass driver, sporting a cone made from layers of carbon fibre composite with a Rohacell foam core. This ensures exceptional system efficiency and power handling, allowing the Q1 to be driven by high-quality amplifiers delivering as few as 50 watts per channel. The drivers are housed within a fully braced, fully damped, hard-anodised aluminium and copper enclosure, exhibiting Magico’s immaculate fit and finish throughout. Continued research into the Q platform’s damping mechanism has enabled Magico to address the problem of resonance that is common in standmount designs; instead of attempting to add mass to the stand and decoupling the speaker, the Q1 is directly coupled and the stand itself is a damping mechanism. Thanks to Magico’s uniquely scientific approach to loudspeaker engineering, the outcome is a standmount speaker with an explosive, full-range performance. It is a two-way monitor the like of which has never before been heard, exhibiting a true absence of compromise that brings music to life in thrilling fashion. For such a diminutive speaker, its bass extension is extraordinary, its resolution exemplary and its dynamic range simply breathtaking. Compact yet unconstrained – the Q1 is utterly unique.
