M3 from Magico
In 2014 the introduction of the limited edition M-Project provided a glimpse of the cutting edge designs and advanced technologies that were being developed at Magico. Over the past two years intense research has been dedicated to exploring new methodologies and materials which are now incorporated in the Magico M3.
A new carbon fiber side panel design, an all-graphene midrange and bass driver design, and the phenomenal 28mm diamond coated beryllium tweeter, previously found only in the M-Project, all come together in what is the most sophisticated loudspeaker we have ever created.
An internal three-axis matrix framework in the M3 contributes to an extremely rigid enclosure and eliminates unwanted resonances and colorations, allowing all drivers to perform with stunning resolution and dynamics.
The M3 midrange driver operates in a purpose built sub-enclosure made of a proprietary polymer that enhances midrange control and articulation. This sub-enclosure concept was first used in the S3 and is now applied to our more recent 3-way speaker designs.
The M3 incorporates the Diamond coated Beryllium diaphragm tweeter (28-mm) used in the MPro. The optimized geometry and the Diamond coating on the Beryllium aligns the acoustical properties closer to perfection without adding extra weight of a full Diamond dome, this revolutionary tweeter design offers a near perfect weight to stiffness ratio that is unmatched in the industry. The new tweeter provides extra-long excursion movement and uses a neodymium based motor system that is customized to match the sensitivity and power handling capabilities of the M3 while maintaining ultra-wide dispersion characteristics and ultra-low distortion measurements.
Magico is the world’s first manufacturer to utilize graphene in the development of a radically new and advanced loudspeaker cone design. Graphene has many extraordinary properties and is approximately 100 times stronger than the strongest steel. The newly designed Magico six-inch midrange and seven-inch bass driver cones found in the M3 are both manufactured using Multi-Wall carbon XG Nanographene and an ultra-stiff proprietary new carbon weave which is 20% lighter and 300% stiffer than previous cone material we used in Magico loudspeaker offerings.
Three seven-inch M3 bass drivers are vertically aligned to achieve ideal room integration and reproduce the lowest registers of bass frequency with speed and accuracy. The M3 bass drivers are optimized for minimal music related distortions in the frequency and time domain using the latest state-of-the-art FEA simulation.
A contributing element to the stunning overall sound performance of the M3 is the application of the MPOD. The MPOD is based on the scientific principles of Constrained Layer Damping (CLD) which are well documented and in our opinion, the most effective way to channel unwanted vibrations away from a component and its platform.
Operating under massive weight the MPOD is a noise channeling system that effectively dissipates resonance while maintaining ultimate coupling properties to the floor resulting in remarkable sonic results. M3’s ordered with the MPOD 3-Pt Stand come with a beautifully appointed case that includes six MPOD’s and a professional grade torque wrench that allows for periodic maintenance of the internal tension rods.
