So, after long, to long time, the wait is over.

This morning I received my new S3 (2023).
And wow, out of the box those little and heavy speakers sound....well, magical, just to think how well the will sound after break in.

Those are the first new S3 (2023) to lend in israel.

@exupgh12 I am looking forward to reading your comments as the project settles in, as I am interested in the new S3 and we have the Luxy and MSB overlap, so your impressions will really resonate here. Would you please post your approximate room dimensions at some point?

Thanks for the pics. Happy Listening!

Awesome simply awesome

Congratulations! They look stunning.

Happy listening!!!

Thank you for the words @joey_v , @dcathro

The new texture of M Cast (my preference is toward nonglossy color and \ or coating) is different from the previous generation, it's no longer rough (like an army tank finish) but simply mat color, beautiful to watch.

Thank you for the words Lee,

I’m sure your visit at Magico factory was a delight, from my humble experience it’s really interesting to get a look behind’s the scene of a manufacturing processes.

All ought just few days into the break in process, I can all ready say, the new S3’s are way better then previous generation.

they are easier to drive, much more airy, sound details just jump on you with so much information that was not there before , soundstage Is about the same but so much more defined.

The lower end is moving more air in the lower octaves.

all ought I’m around 40+ hours into the break in process, Ivan say that way those speakers sound is going to make tough choice for any one considering M2.

Alon and Yair done superb job in designing the new S3, I can only imagine what next S5 and S7 push boundaries and the current M series.

Very impressive system
How big is the difference between the S and M models ?
Did you hear both ?
