"The M9 begins shipping in Q4 of 2020 with a UK price officially ‘price on application’ but is expected to be in the region of £840,000 inc. VAT per pair.

Why not let us know if you’ve recently won the lottery and intend to upgrade your current speakers to the M9s? We’ll believe you!"

@Andy Bassett Listen, Mr Bassett, I'll have you know that I buy a lottery ticket about one draw in three, so as soon as my numbers come up I'll be right there!

But I'm a home cinema chap these days, not just stereo. So what about the matching centre and surround speakers?

And any idea of dimensions? I suspect that these would be (much) too big for my reasonable but not huge parlour even if I did win the lottery! :)

They come in at over 2m tall and a less than svelte 454kg each.
I've got a good feeling about 6, 16, 24, 29, 34 (lucky numbers 3 and 11) for this Friday's Euromillions - you're welcome. Why not use them as the surround speakers and get some proper high-end speakers for the front channels to go with your 583-inch Samsung The Wall TV!

@Andy Bassett Alas, my parlour measures only 14' wide by 18' long by 10'6" high, so I couldn't accommodate a 583-inch The Wall TV! And, as I thought, the Magico speakers will be too big for my parlour also. And they're extremely heavy also, 454 kg is almost half a ton, I really don't think that my floorboards could take that kind of weight!

But thanks for the tip about the Euromillions lottery!

@Andy Bassett I forgot to say Sir, this sentence " .... and cost the kind of money even the most ardent audiophile would prefer to see be spent on an MRI machine for their nearest hospital. " is very true. AV is only a hobby for most of us, albeit expensive. Doesn't come ahead of saving lives.

Do they have a 7.1 system? Oh and some Atmos speakers? :rotfl:

Mind I'd love to hear a pair just to get a head-on what they think that sort of money can do. The most expensive speakers I heard were around the 250k mark and they weren't great.

They'd look like the cooling towers of coal fired power station if you had them in white. I'm too short to be able to dust the top of them so for me it's a pass.

@martimu The trouble is, even if Magico offered me a pair free, they're simply too big and heavy to fit into most people's rooms. I've never heard a really expensive pair of speakers, maybe the most expensive that I've heard was the B & W Nautilus 802 loudspeaker, which I think were around £20,000 a pair. How cheap compared to the Magico!

@Andy Bassett and @gibbsy I know that nobody will be buying a pair, but I do think that the Magico speakers should be on the front page of AVForums! For the novelty value if nothing else. Here's the current front page at 50% magnification, and the Magicos are not there!

Bugger me cross-eyed!

I don’t care about anything else... I want them.


...and a genuine banquet hall to place them in...

Ah, but what would you drive them with?

Some rich oligarch of premier league footballer will buy them. Just like other photographs I've seen of expensive audio gear in the homes of the rich they'll get pushed up against the marble wall in a room with marble flooring and floor to ceiling glass.
