The Magnepan 1.7i is an exceptional loudspeaker! It is a true high-end product that will be especially appreciated by those who know and treasure the beauty of live music. The 1.7i affords a true high-end listening experience for far less cost than sonically competitive speakers. This classic 3-way “quasi ribbon” planar magnetic design is widely known for its tactile bass, effortless treble and an unbelievably realistic midrange. When paired with proper amplification, the overall sense of realism is best-in-class. As one professional reviewer states: “These remain one of the finest values in audio. In fact, they are steals.”

This posting includes the Magnepan 1.7i with grey fabric sleeve and matte aluminum side trim. As shown in the photos, I am including “Sound Anchor” stands which are heavy-duty steel platforms that raise the speakers several inches off the floor and allow the speaker to be pitched forward or backward. The stand hardware is stainless steel. The stands are worth well north of $500 when purchased new. I also include an assortment of miscellaneous hardware and the original Magnepan stands. Prospective buyers should note that the amplifier used with these speakers must operate comfortably at 4 ohms and must be powerful (at least 100 watts per channel at 4 ohms).

The speakers and stands are in excellent condition with very few signs of wear. I pamper all my audio equipment in a smoke-free home listening environment. You will not be disappointed!
