Ultra-high-end speaker maker Magico launches ‘affordable’ A3

Machined into the metal of every Magico loudspeaker is a subtle, yet permanent, “ M”. Our
symbol is a simple reminder to the owner of a Magico product that they have purchased a
product born of an uncompromised, unapologetic pursuit of performance excellence.
The standards we have set for a product bearing our M logo are not without consequence. The
push forward into the development of new, exotic, costly technologies and materials has meant
that these products are accessible only to a fortunate few. While we have long wanted to bring a
more affordable product to the market, and despite constant experimentation and testing of
various methods for reducing costs to achieve this goal, the results have always fallen short of
earning the Magico M engraving.

Through Dedication. Passion. Knowledge.
We welcome you to the impossible made possible.

Magico is proud to launch the A series. At long last a Magico loudspeaker obtainable for a wider
audience; the A3 brings together a bevy of technologies unheard-of at its price point. A fully
braced and anodized aluminum enclosure, beryllium tweeter, carbon Nanographene cones,
neodymium based motor systems and our renowned elliptical crossover, the A3 is the impossible
made possible.

High Frequency driver

Extended high frequencies are provided by a newly designed Magico pure beryllium-diaphragm
tweeter with an optimized 28-mm dome surface based on the fundamental design platform and
geometry of the M-Project tweeter. The customized neodymium motor system is encased in an
improved back chamber with our latest generation damping materials that facilitate ultra-low
distortion, higher power handling, massive dynamic capabilities and extended linear voice coil
movement.

Midrange Frequency driver

The newly developed 6-inch midrange employs a Multi-Wall carbon fiber cone with a layer of
XG Nanographene, providing optimal stiffness to weight ratios and an ideal damping factor.
Overhung neodymium based motor systems incorporate extra-large magnets to ensure a
stabilized magnetic field in the 75-mm pure titanium voice coils of both the midrange and bass
drivers.

Low Frequency Drivers

Dual 7-inch woofers incorporate a version of the new Gen 8 Magico Nano-Tec cone. The same
properties and materials that allow for the proper combination of stiffness, mass and damping
are carried through to the lowest frequencies. The chassis has also been simulated and tested for
the optimal combination of stiffness and damping. Minimum acoustical impact is achieved through
reducing vibration modes while maximizing air flow. A new overhung neodymium (N48) based
motor system anchors the low frequency reproducers to accomplish a super stabilized magnetic
field. A pure Titanium, 75mm voice coils are consistent with the technology utilized through the
midrange.
The A3 Midrange and Low frequency drivers were optimized for minimal music related distortions
in its band pass, in both the frequency and time domains using latest state of the art FEA
simulation of acoustical, mechanical, electromagnetic and thermal behavior. All of this is now
being done on a single platform, allowing Magico to take the next step in performance
optimization.

Crossover
All four drivers in the A3 are acoustically integrated using Magico’s proprietary Elliptical
Symmetry Crossover topology that utilizes state-of-the-art components from Mundorf of
Germany. The 3-way network features a 24db per octave Linkwitz-Riley filter that maximizes
frequency bandwidth while preserving phase linearity and minimizing intermodulation distortion.

Enclosure
The A3’s massive sealed-enclosure is, like all Magicos, a tour-de-force of engineering. The
enclosure is made entirely from 6061 T6 aircraft grade aluminum, identical materially to the
enclosure developed for the Q Series. This braced, complex internal structure is finished
externally with an elegant brushed anodized “skin”.
The A3 enclosure is best considered as a simplified Q Series design, with the same materials, the
same craftsmanship, and the same attention to design and build detail.

A Magico

The A3 is in design, execution and performance a Magico. Unapologetic. Uncompromising.
The Magico A3.
The impossible made possible.
