Which is truly incredible. The fact that the M2 doesn't blow the A5 out of the water is really shocking given the A5 is what less than 1/3 the price of the M2 ?
Not sure of the point, I have people that hear the A3 or other non Magico speakers that sound really good as well at less than the $70K price point. No doubt the A5 sounds very good, but so do so many other speakers from many manufacturers as well as other models in the S line from Magico.
As I do these "shootouts" several times/week one thing I can tell you from my experience is the "winner" of the "shootouts" almost always varies from person to person.
