The older used 3 series is a a better deal than the 3.7 or 3.7i.
Lower bass and the ability to bi-amp, makes for better sound quality.
I have heard many 3.7 setups, and go away thinking, "the older 3 series is always better sound" !
If you get 3.6s made during the end of their production they have the newer glue taht does not give you problems
Or get any 3 series that have been factory rebuilt with the new adhesive. My old MG III's were rebuilt, added Mye stands, upgraded the internal crossovers, and recently added a streaming device and DAC to my system. I bought my Maggies new in around 1984 and continue to be impressed with how good they sound to my ears.
1984 is around when I discovered Maggie's and planars in general. Many years passed before a pair (IIIA's) belonged to me however...
A friend had a pair of Tympanis in the late 70's and I got hooked on the sound.
I'd like to move to a pair of 3.6's like you have, but the roof needs fixing, the bathroom is getting a partial remodel, etc. I'm one of those people who tends to stick with what I have if I'm happy with it. With the exception of my recent foray into streaming, pretty much all of my gear was purchased more than 10 years ago.
Most of my gear is older for sure. And we (with our plethora of cats that are also not allowed in there) have a 70's house that is a never ending project. Add 2 young girls. So new items are not frequent.
I just bought a sub a couple weeks ago. But before that was my laptop and Pre-DAC which goes back to 2012 or '13.
It's what I can afford, and enjoy it beyond. MGIII's are not far removed from later models, enjoy them!
