The Magneplanar 3.7 is a major update of the legendary Magneplanar 3.6. Though the frame and cosmetics are mostly the same (with the additional option of aluminum trim), the underlying technology has significantly changed. The 3.7 is still a 3-way model, like the 3.6, but, it now employs a full-range ribbon design, like the highly acclaimed 1.7. Magnepan calls this "trickle-up" technology, as the concepts that worked so well in the 1.7 were incorporated in the 3.7.
The 3.7's are built in mirror-image pairs, which means they can be set up with the tweeters toward the center, for greater focus and imaging specificity, or with tweeters to the outside, for a larger "sweet spot" and more expansive soundstage.
A tradition of innovation and advanced technology
Have you ever noticed that instruments projected from small boxes sitting on the floor sound like they are coming out of boxes on the floor? This problem can be partially corrected by placing the box speakers on tall speaker stands. However, the sound still seems to be coming out of a box, because that's precisely what it is doing. The patented Magneplanar principle eliminates these problems by a fundamentally different approach to sound propagation. The Magneplanar projects sound from top to bottom, giving the sound height as well as stereo width and depth. In the concert hall, instruments project in all directions. Instead of projecting sound out of a box, Magneplanars project in all directions, which closely duplicates the original performance.
