- Floor Standing Speaker
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 Magneplanar 20.7 loudspeaker was conceived and designed by perfectionists, for perfectionists. The listeners for whom the 20.7s are ideal for whom Magneplanars have always been ideal are absolute sound types. This Maggies magical ability to transport you to a different space and time and to there realistically recreate (with lifelike scope and size) the sound of actual acoustic instruments is extraordinary and, of course, the very definition of the absolute sound. Indeed, the 20.7s come as close to achieving Harry Pearsons goal of reproducing the sound of real instruments in real space as any speaker. The 20.7 is a 3-way, full-range ribbon design with a quasi-ribbon bass and quasi-ribbon midrange, and true-ribbon tweeter.
