The bass is very well integrated, not like with the D where it was too thick and too slow.
The Magnepans are a tough act to follow. The whole effect is cleaned up, more architectural, and carries with it greater impression of image n&w. Red plot is Diamond, with a trasparent layer of the D over top. They are housed in a beautifully built curved enclosure, which is heavily braced to reduce resonance. The Diamond could be said to be more accurate and more dynamic but it was also ruthless.
You should know that I compared the N to many speakers and bw have they sounded utterly spacious. Disclaimer Any loudspeaker is highly interactive with its environment, the room that it is placed in.
The answer is that the frequency response is a great strapline for a technology story, but it really isn’t the most important factor. JMlab design book by using a newly designed acoustically relatively opaque cone material consisting of a layers of woven carbon fibre sandwiching an 8mm thick aerospace expanded structural foam core made from a material called Rohacell.
Intro I bought these magnificent speakers in an attempt to find more manageable replacements for 800dd Magnepan MG3. I like it deep and I like it strong.
They are that good. Too close and the midrange starts to sound too forward.
My room is far from perfect and therefore frequently causes problems for dynamic speakers. At the very least though, the results as mentioned as part of comparisons with other speakers, should provide something of a starting point. A more potent electromagnetic engine drives the new woofers, powered by a motor system with two neodymium magnets to provide a more symmetrical magnetic field over long excursions, thereby reducing distortion and increasing dynamic response.
They have fantastic soundstaging and their bass can be stunning. Kingko Audio and Omega.
Who other than the odd passing bat is going to care about a clean frequency response that extends three times further than the limit of human hearing? Actually, it may well have the best bass of all models in the series, past and present.
Yet there is nothing intrusive about the way that the high frequency content of program material comes across. If you want good bass, there is simply no substitute for a big cabinet and 80d0 drivers. It has become their trademark. Ultimately though there is just no substitute for listening to speakers in your own setup.

But g&w is still a hint of a quality that was also apparent with the Nautilusnamely a 800v unevenness, a suggestion of coloration that changes as the pitch of the music changes. Christiaan Punter 3 May No Comments. The D can really give you the illusion of listening to a small two way monitor speaker. Other than that, the midrange is very well-executed, and may well be the best part of this speaker.

It has the ability to convey emotion in a way that not many midrange drivers can. Even behind the speaker there would be plenty treble energy and this was what makes them so easy to live with: But the Nautilus tweeters are certainly never harsh or brittle.
Of course you could argue that the source is to blame. The Maggies 800v well actually have too much treble energy in absolute terms but even so, the quality of the treble is apparently difficult for regular tweeters diamond or not to follow. Even the general trends in the FR are remarkably similar. Diamond is the hardest of all elements, which allows fabrication of very thin, light and stiff structures that delay the first HF break up resonance to a very high frequency.
That is why I have two Rel Strata subwoofers. And it comes as standard with every speaker in the range, including the Diamond. Recording of V&w Diamond as Standards The hypothetical perfect tweeter is one that balances infinite stiffness with near-zero density.
