The 30.7 is Magnepan’s crowning achievement

Magnepan has taken all that they’ve learned in their 49 years and distilled it into one no-holds-barred speaker. To produce a better flagship model than the 20.7, they created a bigger “canvas” on which to “paint” — to be exact, 22% more total driver area than the fabled Tympani IVa. The result: lower mass (vs. frequency), better power response and better bass.

These goals were best accomplished with a 4-way ribbon design (another first for Magnepan).The 30.7 bass panel houses two bass drivers in each panel that literally go from edge-to-edge of the frame to pack the maximum diaphragm area in the smallest possible frame. Separating the bass panel from the tweeter/midrange panel allows greater flexibility for various installations.

We know you won’t want to miss hearing this already critically lauded speaker that’s destined to become iconic, so RSVP today!

“…[T]he best buy in an ultra-high-end loudspeaker I’ve ever come across”

— Jonathan Valin, The Absolute Sound

“This is, quite simply, the most top-to-bottom coherent, highest-resolution, most astonishingly lifelike planar loudspeaker I’ve ever heard (from Maggie or anyone else). On acoustic music of any kind, it is very nearly peerlessly realistic (especially through the midband), making almost everything else I’m familiar with—and I think I’ve heard most of the contenders—sound a little less jaw-droppingly ‘there.’

“Oh, and I’ve saved the best for last. Not only are the 30.7s the handsomest-looking large Maggies of all time (in their blue trim and snow-white panel covers), they are also among the best deals Maggie has ever offered. They cost $29,000 the pair (release slated for January). That’s not chump change, I grant you, but compared to the price of the six-figure speakers they so successfully compete against, it makes them, perhaps, the greatest bargain in ultra-high-end history.”
