Magnepan Magneplanar 3.7


Magnepan’s background statement says only that, “the 3.7 is a 3-way, full-range ribbon speaker with a very ‘fast’ quasi-ribbon midrange and true ribbon tweeter.” The statement goes on to say that, rather than impressing prospective customers with technical details, the firm suggests “that you bring your favorite recordings to your nearest Magnepan dealer and let the 3.7 do the impressing.”

The 3.7 is available in new aluminum trim or our traditional wood trims of oak and cherry. Fabric options are off-white, black and dark gray. Suggested list pricing starts at $5495/pair for aluminum or oak versions, or $5895/pair for the dark cherry versions. 

Next week, the 3.7 will debut both at the CES 2011 event and at T.H.E. Show. At CES, the 3.7 can be heard in the Audio Research Corporation room at the Venetian Hotel and will be powered by a new ARC amp. At T.H.E. Show, the 3.7 will be highlighted in Magnepan’s demonstration room in the Flamingo Hotel, and will be powered by Bryston electronics.
