The Analysis Omega Ribbon Speakers Vs. Magico

Cont.

Yes, the 6’s were absurdly clean and clear. Yes, they could rumble down low and also sing to the heavens.  Yes, timbre, voices, placement, soundstage; all check, check, check. But these big and chewy 6 cookies just went crumbling down my acoustic chest. How come?

I went back to this dealer a second time, so befuddled was I.

I listened to the Magico 6’s again, this time doing a dizzying digital dance.  I also went into one of the smaller rooms and listened to the $18,000 Magico V2’s, the latter exhibiting the same family hallmarks with their cleanliness of sound and precision imaging.

But still, no dice; something was just not adding up to a musical gestalt. My unknown mind had dug its heels in and was not letting “me” run free. 

The Analysis Omega’s, costing $4,000 more than the V2’s and $138,000 less than the 6’s, were simply more musically satisfying than either of these Magico’s. Of course the all-ribbon bass of the Omega’s obviously did not run as powerfully deep as the mighty 6’s, nor the soundstage as huge, and ditto all the rest of a reviewer’s check ride in comparison to the two M’s. But I didn’t care.

If I was going to be sitting around contemplating my mortality and the meaning of it all, the Greeks, with their deep-rooted aesthetic perspective, and me were the ones who were going to be dialoging together.

And if life was indeed about to be short, then it was now time to go for the gusto. In went a subwoofer to make it all go boom. A 51” tall Hsu Research TN-1220HO subwoofer was added and all was now seamlessly satisfying.
