    So what’s happens upon installing Magico’s MPods AFTER you have reach perfect speaker placement?

    Well you pull the pins! After the M3 speaker positioning was finalized, I wanted to get a better feel of the speaker so sat patiently allowing hours and days to pass while the speakers break in. From what I have heard, the MPods are a game changer and a must for the M series, so finally I was...

    You Hear What?

    I have made several friends in Audio around the country, and many of us have listened to each others systems - it is interesting to compare notes, and then ask the question, “You Hear What"?. Going back to the Yanny and Laurel playback asking what word you hear, I can’t help but think how this...
