Magico to introduce A5 loudspeaker

Since the introduction of the smallest model to Magico’s entry-level A-Series in 2019 with the A1 standmount, the Californian-based high-end maker – known for its ‘no holds barred’ take on loudspeaker design – has been busy working on its £25,000 flagship A5 floorstander. Weighing more that 81kg each and standing 1,370mm tall, the five-driver three-way configuration incorporates the company’s first 127mm dedicated midrange partnered to three 229mm bass drivers all made from enhanced technology that uses graphene Nano-Tec carbon fibre sandwiched cones to achieve what Magico claims is an unprecedented stiffness-to-weight ratio.

Shared with the other models in the A-Series, the tweeter is a 28mm pure beryllium dome with a damped back chamber that helps to lower distortion and improve power and dynamic handling. Sensitivity is rated at 88dB into 4ohm and power handling at 50 – 1,000W.

The A5’s cabinet is a sealed enclosure in a brushed black anodised finish that’s machined from aircraft-grade aluminium with complex internal bracing, and is said to be the same material and construction method as found in the company’s even more upmarket Q-Series.

A dedicated sub-enclosure houses the midrange driver to isolate it from any stray back energy caused by the large bass drivers. All five drivers are integrated with Magico’s proprietary Elliptical Symmetry crossover, built with Mundorf components that incorporate new M-Resist Ultra foil resistors.

Magico’s founder Alon Wolf says: “The A-Series has been a great success in reaching a wider audience.” He continues: “The A5 builds on that success with a new midrange of extraordinary musicality.”

Magico's A5 floor stander is expected to be available from "Spring" and you can keep up to date about news on its release on the Magico website. The A5 will be distributed in the UK by Absolute Sounds .
