for a while I had 2.7's and they had 2 socks from what I remember, so I eliminated one. AFAIC it's better.
I did it to my Quad 57's and replaced the grills with one layer of regular cloth. Grand improvement to the tippy top end.
'how do you like Socialism so far?...'
The glorious sound of sockless maggies!!!!
Mine are in my cave room. Heck, I do not even have to dust them as my wife never sets foot in this room. I can do whatever I want.
And you have them reversed (as I do) - so you listen to the mylar side and the "no bars" side of the ribbons.
Very respectable set up @shumi!
Looks good to me, mine are in my basement room also, wife hasn't been down there since I moved the system down there so she could have her living room back lol.
Are those Danny's speaker cables ?
How do you like them ?
Front....gives me a chance to also monitor panel for delamination, wrinkles, etc...
Shumi, I am still surprised that these were refurbished by Magnepan. The finish is very much DIY.
yes they were refurbished at the factory. Not sure why you are not happy with them. Mylard is nice and tight, no wrinkles except for one very small on the very top of my left speaker which does not come into play... and I measured them to be within 0.5 db of each other, and of course they sound amazing.
Here is Magnepan's development/voicing room in their factory.
Must be something to it if the factory does it. I'm really thinking about doing it.
Go for it!!! Notice my custom modes to my listening chair to ensure perfect alignment with sweet spot in the vertical axis....try to do that in a living room with the wife lurking around!
Lol Nice Chair! I'll probably try do it in a few days,I have new tubes for my preamp coming today and I want to deal with that for a few days first.
skypop, not sure if we talked about this in previous posts, but if you already do not have it, I recommend you get yourself a usb mic and a mic stand in order to use rew to measure and optimize your system.
I had one years ago when I was setting up my home theater than sold it after I was finished. So I already have a boom mic stand just need to pick up another mic. I put the new tubes in my preamp yesterday and letting them play for the whole wknd,so during the week I'll have a better idea if I'm going to take the socks off.
