I sent an inquiry to Magico asking how they compared to the original S3, this is what Peter Mackay responed with....

Thank you for your message and inquiry regarding the sound performance of the new A5 in comparison to the original S3.

We are pleased to report without hesitation that the performance level of the new A5 will easily surpass the original S3 loudspeakers. The advancements made at Magico over the past 2-3 years with transducer, enclosure and crossover designs are vast and have raised the bar significantly since the release of the S3.
WOW. The Magico "A" Game is changing things ...

I never really liked the S3 Mk1 despite the hystrionics on another forum about the impact of the new midrange enclosure. I thought the S5 Mk1 was a better speaker because it was better balanced overall & had better bass. The S5Mk2 OTOH is in another league to both speakers. Though how it would compare to the A5 I couldn't say?

I know Magico A5 is not out yet but I’m wondering if anyone has an opinion on how it might compare to other similarly priced speakers like B&W 802 D3 or Revel Salon2.

I’m also curious how it might compare to the older Q5 or the newer M series. I know these are in a completely different price range but I’m wondering if anyone has compare A2 to M2 for example.
