Magnepan has been manufacturing innovative, world class stereo speakers for 47 years. Jim Winey, the inventor of the Magneplanar loudspeaker, first owned electrostatic loudspeakers and began experimenting to design an improved electrostatic speaker. In 1969, Jim invented the Magneplanar, a thin-film magnetic equivalent to the electrostat and founded Magnepan. Magneplanars are American-made with virtually all American parts. And they are proud to say– “Made in America. Sold in China”.
The 1.7 is a departure from Magnepan’s 41-year history of using planar magnetic drivers for the bass or lower midrange. The use of quasi ribbon technology down into the lower midrange and bass will provide a new level of coherence. The 1.7i is a 3-way, full-range, quasi-ribbon design with a quasi-ribbon bass/ midrange, tweeter, and super-tweeter.
