Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: Magnepan Tympanis

They were the earliest (and largest) models dating back to the early 70s. The current models are more coherent and have higher transparency, but the big T-IIIs were superior at the low end, IMHO.

In simplified terms there was the 1-U and its updates, the III and the IV. It was hearing the eight panel IIIs in '74 that introduced me to them using Audio Research electronics. I had never before heard anything that realistic sounding with large scale symphonic content.

Click here for a list of the models. Here's the T-III:

It uses a pair of two-panel midrange/tweeters and a single four panel woofer.
