Magico M7 ultra high-end speakers

The enormous M9 costs as much as a house and requires a large room to function optimally. That’s why there are smaller speakers in Magico’s M-series, with the M2 floorstanding speaker costing little more than a luxury car.

With the much larger M7, Magico has created a scaled-down M9, but kept almost everything from the flagship in a smaller cabinet.

It’s nonetheless still a large and heavy speaker, 164 cm tall and 239 kg in weight.

Six drivers are distributed vertically on the 49 cm wide faceplate, which is constructed with multiple layers of 6061-T6 aluminium. While the M9 is semi-active with amplifiers for the woofers, the M7 is completely passive and the two 12-inch woofers at the bottom are Magico’s eighth generation MAG12008HE.

The speakers are developed with a Polytec Laser Doppler vibrometer and scanned to find where the resonances lie, which are then damped before long listening sessions to fine-tune the speakers.

Swedish Marten builds speakers like few others. Diamond, beryllium and ceramic go hand in hand in the new flagship Marten Mingus Septet. And the price? Well, what can we say...

Diamond and carbon fibre

The drivers are also designed to eliminate resonances, from woofer to tweeter. The latter is a 28 mm beryllium diaphragm with a chemically applied diamond coating, while the midrange contains a beehive-shaped aluminium sandwich as its core, with a graphene-infused carbon fibre layer on both sides.

The two midwoofers use Magico’s eighth-generation Nano-Tec diaphragm, which is also a sandwich of aluminium and carbon fibre.

The two woofers are constructed in the same way, with a 127 mm voice coil at the back and one large and one smaller neodymium magnet to stabilise the magnetic field as much as possible.

According to Magico, the woofers can deliver a sound pressure level of 120 decibels at 25 Hz.

The speakers are equipped with Magico’s Elliptical Symmetry crossover (ESXO), which is only used on Magico’s most expensive speakers. At one end of the crossover are the cable terminals. There you’ll also find founder Alon Wolf’s signature on a chrome-plated disc.

The Magico M7 will be available in the first quarter of 2024, and although it’s smaller and cheaper than the flagship M9, it still costs a staggering $375,000 per pair in the US.
