RE: so better models do not come with resistors?

"so better models do not come with resistors?"

Apparently they do, could be Magnepan policy? I see no other reason for resistors unless they thought their high frequency response was flawed. I've seen and heard dozens of speakers over the years and I can't recall any with a resistor in the signal path.(controls for bass output? yes)

"the top of the lines tho, surely those are educated consumers? Maybe I assume."

Thats what I would think, but then again, I've had customers with very expensive gear that sounded like........... well, shit.

"Is it customary for Magnepan users to prefer mid-fi gear?"

Yes and no, with the cheaper models, people can not rationalize spending more money than their speakers cost , so end up with mid-fi. With the top range Maggies you see the quality of systems rise.
