Magico M6

The well-known manufacturer of uncompromising loudspeakers, Magico, of its “M” range with the Magico M6 floor-standing loudspeakers. According to the manufacturer, the speakers raise the bar of sound to a whole new level.

The Magico M6 floor standing speakers are the culmination of the development of the "M" series of speakers, first introduced to the public in 2014. One of the features of the speakers is a monolithic carbon fiber cabinet combined with aerospace materials and technologies. This hull design achieves a strength-to-weight ratio of 60 while reducing overall weight by 50% and reducing external dimensions by 30% without compromising internal volume. The curved outer and inner walls of the housing help to minimize internal standing waves and eliminate external diffraction.

The four solid aluminum blanks used to make the exterior surfaces are specially machined to produce curved surfaces without corners. A thick internal aluminum baffle holds the drivers securely, while 10 special rods tighten the front and rear panels, further increasing the rigidity of the structure.

Zero diffraction allows sound waves to travel more naturally and eventually "dissolve" into the listening room. The shape of the front panel provides not only the aesthetic appeal of the model but also facilitates the seamless integration of all drivers. The specially designed three-point MPOD base plate ensures maximum stability of the loudspeakers.

The back of the midrange driver is equipped with a special horn-shaped chamber made of hard carbon fiber. The shape of the chamber provides efficient dissipation and attenuation of standing waves without the need for a large number of damping materials.

The Magico M6 uses an improved version of the revolutionary tweeter traditionally used in the "M" line. The 28mm beryllium diaphragm has a diamond coating and an optimized geometry calculated using the most advanced modeling tools. The physical properties of beryllium made it possible to increase the diameter of the diaphragm to 28 mm, which, together with the new acoustic chamber located behind the dome, brings the tweeter sound as close as possible to the theoretical ideal.

The new 6" midrange driver used in the M6 ​​features a graphene cone that is 30% lighter and 300% stiffer than its predecessors. At the heart of the magnetic system is a massive neodymium magnet and stabilizing magnets, allowing a stable magnetic field of 1.7 Tesla to be obtained in a 15 mm air gap. The voice coil is made of titanium. Unprecedented assembly accuracy is ensured by the use of the latest 3D laser scanning techniques. This allows you to optimize the performance of each speaker in its assigned frequency range and minimize deviations from the precise piston movement. The suspension of the midrange driver provides stable cone travel within +/- 6mm, which allows you to reproduce mid-range frequencies up to 120 dB with virtually no distortion.

Three new 10.5-inch speakers with cellular carbon and graphene drivers are responsible for reproducing full and deep bass. Just as with the Q7 loudspeakers, special attention has been paid to the elimination of eddy currents that occur in the metal elements of the speaker magnet system. By creating chaotic magnetic fields, eddy currents provoke the movement of the voice coil and, as a result, distortion. A powerful magnet system effortlessly drives a 5" titanium voice coil with a total journey of one inch. The branded crossover (Elliptical Symmetry Crossover) uses Mundorf components from Germany.

World’s Most Expensive $5 Million Speaker

World’s Most Expensive $5 Million Speaker

Rub your eyes as much as you wish, but that won't change the fact the price you see for this pair of stunning speakers is a cool $5m. If we owned them, we'd almost be scared to use the speakers for their intended purpose out of fear that we might do some damage.

Hart Audio D&W Aural Pleasure speaker systems do not flaunt their size - in them, the bulk of the cost is in the cases. The cabinets of both loudspeakers are cast in solid gold (18 carats). If it seems to you that such a price tag is too high for paying for aesthetic pleasure, the company has a cheaper model. Hart Audio D&W Aural Pleasure in silver cases will cost “only” $315,000 – but will be sold by the piece.

World’s Most Expensive $5 Million Speaker

 Is it expensive again? It doesn't matter - 99 pairs of phosphor bronze were also produced, and the price tag is $63,000 apiece. What about sound? These tiny speakers, despite their size, give out a luxurious bass (frequency response 16 - 27,000 Hz with an error of 3 dB) - branded speakers work wonders.


As we’ve mentioned above, the gold edition costs $4.7 million, while the bronze version is priced at a mere £40,000 – $62,800. The Silver edition is also a bit expensive, costing £200,000 ($313,900).


They sport 3 speaker drive units, the main driver delivering bass and midrange sounds, while also comprising a tweeter in its middle, for treble, plus an additional upper-placed driver that the producer describes as a super tweeter, which can deliver a huge array of frequencies, adding to the quality of this system’s sound and covering virtually all audio formats.

On a technical approach, the speakers feature an impedance of 5 Ohms, a frequency range from 47 Hz to 37 kHz (+- 4dB & 39 Hz – 47 kHz +- 10db), a sensibility range of 97 dB 1W at 1 meter. These technical data and their conformation are good reasons for them to be placed in the room’s corners.

JBL 4349 Studio Monitor Review

Around two years prior JBL presented the L100 Classic (checked on here), an advanced variant of the 1970 L100 speaker complete with Quadrex froth grille. Seeing the refreshed rendition of the speaker from the notable Memorex promotion was cool, and evidently I'm in good company to have that impression. The L100 was a hit, and JBL delivered more in its series of new speakers dependent on famous plans yet using new innovation. The JBL 4349 ($7,500) is an enormous stand-mounted screen with an uncovered horn that takes up the top third of the bureau. It very well may be had in either a Black Walnut Wood facade with a dark barbecue or a Satin Walnut Wood Veneer with a blue grille. Go with the Satin Walnut Wood Veneer to expand the retro styling sway.

It might resemble an oldie but a goodie, however JBL's retro-propelled 4349 studio screen comes loaded with the organization's new pressure driver and HDI waveguide.Whichever finish works for you, it's the enormous, dark, shaped composite horn that is probably going to get your consideration when you first see it. The horn is JBL's new High-Definition Imaging ("HDI") waveguide, which houses another 1.5-inch double stomach pressure driver. The lower part of the horn has a board with high-recurrence and super high-recurrence trim controls. The grille covering the lower part of the speaker conceals a 12-inch woofer and a couple of front-terminating ports. The bureau estimates 29 inches high, 17.5 inches wide, and 13.5 inches down, and tips the scales at a strong 83 pounds. The quality of the facade is well done, and the fundamental MDF bureau is strong and very much supported. The details given by JBL express the ostensible impedance as 8 Ohms, with 91 dB effectiveness. Recurrence reaction is evaluated at 32Hz to 25kHz (±6dB).

Before I continue on to talking about arrangement and tuning in, I needed to examine the D2415k pressure driver. It depends on the D2430k utilized in the profoundly respected M2 speaker framework however involves double drivers a large portion of the size as in the M2. The ring-formed polymer drivers utilize a "V" molded math said to diminish separation modes. This new driver is matched with the HDI horn, which goes about as a huge waveguide to give an advanced scattering design. The Sonoglass composite material utilized for the HDI horn is thick and sonically inactive.

The vast majority of my listening was finished with the 4349's being controlled by the Naim Uniti Atom. The 4349s should be put on a stand, so I matched them with the JS-120, a stand that works with a few JBL speakers. The 4349s sit on the stands with practically no mechanical association.

It might resemble an oldie but a goodie, however JBL's retro-propelled 4349 studio screen comes loaded with the organization's new pressure driver and HDI waveguide.Joss Stone's "The Chokin Kind" from her collection The Soul Sessions (Tidal, Virgin) sounded somewhat more slender in the midrange than they did through the as of late investigated B&W 603 S2s or any of the Performa Be models from JBL's sister organization, Revel. The general impression is that of a recessed midrange and more forward high pitch. I attempted various settings of the trim controls and observed turning up the HF change leveled the equilibrium a piece. However, the 4349 plainly outperformed different speakers as far as productivity and lucidity in the upper midrange or more. Regardless of whether mated with the humble Naim or a bigger Krell intensifier, the 4349s played very uproariously and neatly. There were no indications of stress or separation.

Paula Coles' "Tiger" from This Fire (Tidal, Warner) gave an exercise to the 4349's 12-inch woofer. I realize that some might be distrustful of a straightforward paper woofer, however the 4349 is verification that JBL stays equipped for planning entirely competent drivers with more normal materials. For this situation, the generally high hybrid point implies the woofer needs to cover a wide recurrence range. I viewed the bass notes as full and strong however inadequate with regards to a portion of the itemized subtlety I found in the as of late explored Revel F228Be and F328Be and Magico A3 speakers.

JBL 4349 Pros And Cons


The JBL 4349 expands upon the notable retro plan of JBL studio screens, which have been a pillar in proficient settings for a really long time.

The blend of a 12-inch driver and an enormous, ported nook gives solid, full-bodied bass.

The 4349 is very effective and can play uproariously with only a couple of watts of intensification. Fortunately the 4349 is equipped for keeping up with very low contortion levels at incredibly high volumes, keeping up with its levelheadedness well beyond the point numerous speakers would be self-destructing sonically and maybe even truly.


There is an observable plunge in the midrange. I had the option to dial in better apparent equilibrium utilizing the tone controls, yet never enough to totally dispose of the hesitant midrange.

The JS-120 stand appears to be somewhat weak for the 4349. I can perceive how it would be ideal for a more modest speaker, however the 4349 is a major kid. This may not be a worry for low-traffic regions, yet assuming you are putting the speakers in moderate-to high-traffic regions, they ought to be on stable stands that precisely associate with the speaker.

How does the JBL 4349 contrast with the opposition?

There are not many stand-mounted speakers of this size that I can imagine, so the probable contenders to the 4349 are other horn-based, retro-styled plans. Two strike a chord immediately: JBL's own 4367 ($15,000) resembles a leveled up 4349 however includes a 15-inch woofer and a similar pressure driver used in the profoundly respected M2. My restricted listening experience with this speaker was extremely certain.

Klipsch, another veteran horn-speaker maker, likewise offers the Heritage Cornwall IV ($5,998),a three-way with a 15-inch woofer.


The JBL 4349 is an incredible blend of present day innovation and old-school feel. The blend of the all-new D2415k pressure driver and new HDI waveguide gives staggeringly unique highs, with quick homeless people and great imaging, while at the same time remaining very spotless and liberated from twisting. While many "8 Ohm" speakers have critical impedance plunges that make them harder to drive, the 4349 stayed simple to drive neatly and noisily. While I didn't have any low-fueled cylinder enhancers to give a shot with the 4349s, I firmly speculate they would turn out great. The speakers never appeared to pressure even humbly controlled enhancers, including a Russound MBX-Amp, which had the option to drive the 4349 levels sufficiently to make discussion unimaginable without hollering, notwithstanding putting out a small 50 watts for every channel.

While I was not actually an enthusiast of the midrange plunge, a portion of my companions who got an opportunity to tune in with me loved 4349's voicing. The wide scattering given by the HDI horn gave a wide perfect balance to different audience members. We as a whole concurred that the mix of apparently easy elements, detail, and absence of mutilation of the upper midrange and high pitch were amazing. Assuming you love the exemplary studio screen style yet need to exploit the new advancements in speaker innovation, the JBL 4349s merit taking a nearby pay attention to
