Magnepan / Krell

Although I’ve never heard this system, I am told by those in the know it is pretty spectacular. A lot of my personal affection went into the restoration of those beautiful Magnapan MG3.3R’s. I inherited this pair of speakers from a friend who emigrated to the UK now more than twenty years ago and so began the enormous task of not only restoring these somewhat fragile beasts, but also improving them substantially. I rebuilt the delicate ribbon tweeters by hand with new parts I imported directly from the agents in the U.S. and I designed and implemented my own version of an optimum cross over network for the speaker’s three way driver compliment. At the time I was done with them, they did not stand back for the then just released MG3.5’s.
