Very nice write up and great results.
There seems to be a number of Maggie mods that provide a noticeable improvement.
I replaced the passive mid to tweeter crossover, mostly to raise the crossover freq when I added the RD75's but I did upgrade the components.
As soon as the Venu360 returns from testing I will eliminate the external crossover and biamp.
Thanks. I had saved a post from AndyR from many years ago on recommended Maggie mods. I've done 4 out of the 5 by using Mye stands and the recent crossover update, which included fuse removal and speaker connector replacement. I have a friend who is a woodworker, so I may yet get to the hardwood frames. I'm also thinking of doing the razor mod.
I still have a long way to go on room treatment and speaker placement, although the Limage setup sounds really good in my small room, and the bass traps in the corners behind the speakers help a lot. The soundstage is really nice but doesn't typically extend beyond the width of the speakers.
I'm sure you'll have fun with your new toy!
I have just done the razor mod...
My impressions after doing it are still developing. I can say, however, that I am noticing a huge increase in the clarity of the tweeter at high volume. It seems I also have more bass, especially at moderate levels. The tweeter seems to have benefitted the most, which seems counter intuitive until I started thinking about how much less movement/resonance there is in the whole panel at this point. Used kilmat and a paper cutter. 8 hour job.
the kilmat is easily chamfered after install with a flat edge like a butterknife.
