Magnepan heard you — “The 1.7 is too big for my small room.”

So, they down-sized the 1.7 and called it the “.7.” It was that simple. Most all of what you read about the 1.7 applies to the .7.

Ok, not everything. Because the .7 has a smaller bass diaphragm, it has less “bite on the air.” Consequently, the bass will be less than the 1.7 if you wish to use it in a larger room. However, the DWM Bass Panel can be used to supplement the bass.

The .7 offers full-range, quasi-ribbon technology at a price that some audiophiles spend for speaker cables. Value is what Magneplanars are all about.

The .7 has an optional oval base as shown below for modern decors.

For those that have followed the “i” upgrades of the 3.7 and 1.7, the improvements of the 3.7i and 1.7i were incorporated into the .7.

The .7 was subjected to “blind testing” by a panel of audiophiles and casual listeners. In addition to better sound, there is one more important improvement that you can test for yourself. If you have the opportunity to hear the .7s at your local dealer, try this experiment—Ask the dealer to place the speakers with the tweeters on the outside. Note how the imaging remains remarkably stable when seated far off-axis. With some speakers it is necessary to sit in the “sweet spot” for good imaging. With the tweeters on the outside, the .7 has the widest sweet spot of any of any previous Maggies. If you prefer to sit only in the “sweet spot”, try the tweeters on the inside.

    For me the 0.7 sounds more refined than any other speaker I ever heard when I auditioned it in the store connected to a solid state amplifier Overture likes to use with this speaker. It was less dynamic than speakers costing $50,000 or more they demonstrated at their seminars, speakers designed to duplicate outdoor rock festivals more realistically. But the 0.7 is as dynamic as a live orchestra in the Wilmington Opera House and since I would rather stick a soldering iron in my navel rather than attend the likes of the Dover Firefly festival, if money were no object I would choose Magnepan over any other speaker. I am limited to the 0.7 because I live in small Futuro house which has only 500 square feet. (If money were no object there is no other house I would want to own than a Futuro so the 0.7 is my dream speaker because it is the biggest speaker I can fit into my little living room.) If you have a bigger listening room you can use a bigger Magnepan model.
    I love the sound of single ended triode amplifiers, but a typical SET is not powerful enough for the Magnepan. So I built a SET which uses 833-A AM radio station transmitter tubes at 1000 Volts on the plate and combined with Hammond 1642SE output transformers this sounded far more alive than the solid state amplifier made the 0.7’s sound in the store audition. You can’t buy an 833-A stereo amplifier for less than $350,000 so you have to build it yourself which you can do for between $1500 and $2000, something not as difficult to do as you might think.
