    Default Magnepan MMG

    A local shop has a used pair available for $300. Are these Magnepans any good? The original price is $550 a pair.

    RuSsMaN owned a pair for a few months and he gave a favorable review of them. Maybe he'll chime in.

    If you decide to pass, I might be interested. Let me know what shop in case you don't want them.

    for 300.00 cant go wrong with em, by word of mouth alone. I'd try em with my hsu stf-2 sub to see how that would sound. I heard nothing but good things about em, and at that price, I'd snag em just to try em.

    I think I'll pass. Audio Concepts in Dallas. Website audioconceptsonline.com
    I often check their used /demo stuff. I've found some good deals. They have had some real nice older high end stuff come in and out this year. Good place to look for 2 channel.
