Magnat Prime One

Magnat Prime OneReference class Bluetooth loudspeaker system. The name says it all: the Magnat Prime One is the number 1 of the new Connected Audio range from Magnat. It forms the perfect symbiosis of modern streaming and hi-fi stereo sound. With this combination, it raises the category of practical Bluetooth speakers to a new sound level. And it shows at the very first glance that it fulfills all of these aspirations. The most elegant materials in abundance – including a 10 mm thick solid aluminium top panel and an extremely sturdy MDF enclosure in modern fabric – speak for themselves. The 6 kg weight of the desktop enclosure makes it clear how solidly the Prime One is built. The elegant look is accompanied by a perfect feel. The controls on the Prime One are made of solid aluminium, just like the top panel. The minimalistic, clear operating concept underlines the purist nature of this reference-class Bluetooth speaker. However, it is not just the exterior qualities that make the Magnat Prime One so impressive. Concealed inside is technology of the very highest level. At the heart of its high-quality stereo reproduction are the 2 x 2-way systems lurking behind the anthracite-coloured fabric of the Prime One. Typical for hi-fi, we have opted for the combination of a Klippel-optimised, high-impulse 84 mm bass-midrange driver and 25 mm fabric dome on each side. This kind of set-up can be found in nearly all compact high-end loudspeakers, and for a good reason: for perfect, fine resolution sound across the entire listening area, 2-way systems are the state of the art. An exceptionally large bass radiator with a diameter of 130 mm enriches the sound of the Prime One with clean low bass reproduction without any flow noise whatsoever. Operating from the background, while also being an equally central component, is the high-quality amplifier section of the Prime One. The integrated module provides the best sound thanks to Bluetooth 4.0 including Qualcomm aptX. Four separate amplifier channels including active filtering through a digital signal processor supply each individual chassis with the best possible sound without any loss. The efficient Class D technology ensures sumptuous power output from the amplifiers with only minimal warming. In addition to streaming via Bluetooth, the Prime One also features an analogue 3.5 mm jack input for connecting other source devices. A USB charging output supplies mobile devices with up to 2.0A. With the first few beats, the Prime One makes it clear that it takes its sonic demands very seriously. It delivers a high-end, richly detailed, finely arranged and absolutely hi-fi soundscape. The two 2-way systems build up a credible three-dimensionality in front of the listener and bring the finest details to your ears over the entire working area. This precise sound and neutrality give the Prime One a tonal authority that is unique in the Bluetooth segment. Thanks to its elegant appearance, the high-quality technology inside and its absolutely durable sound, the Magnat Prime One is a modern and convenient alternative to the classic stereo system and is the new centre of excellent sound in your home. Frequency Response: 38 Hz – 30 kHz, Dimensions: 385 x 122 x 250 mm, Weight: 6 kg

Magnat Multi Monitor 220

Magnat Multi Monitor 220Fully active Bluetooth stereo loudspeaker set with phono input. The Magnat MULTI MONITOR 220 combines classic hi-fi with modern music streaming: The high-quality active stereo set provides a phono pre-amplifier for MM record players as well as Bluetooth including aptX in addition to further analogue and digital inputs. This enables the beloved vinyl collection to really come into its own, as well as high-definition digital music – from your smartphone, notebook or tablet, even in completely wireless mode. The Magnat MULTI MONITOR 220 makes things easy for its owners: It offers six different options for connecting source devices. Audiophile listeners are particularly delighted with the integrated phono pre-amplifier for MM systems, which can be switched on by connecting to the stereo RCA input. In this way, your record collection can really come into its own on a high-quality, high-performance system. The MULTI MONITOR 220 also plays back digital titles with just as much precision: Bluetooth, including aptX, guarantees outstanding quality for audio streaming. Users can also find other wired connectivity options on the back of the unit in the form of a 3.5 mm jack socket as well as one optical and one coaxial digit input. The source can be selected easily via the remote control provided. The MULTI MONITOR 220 processes digital input signals of up to 192 kHz/24 bits. To ensure that this outstanding quality can also be exploited to the full during playback, we only use high-quality components for the chassis: We have opted for a 25 mm Magnat fmax tweeter which, thanks to its dispersion-optimised sound guide and powerful ferrite magnet system, performs just as dynamically as it does in terms of precision. The deep bass range is taken care of by an FE Dynamics chassis with a ceramic-aluminium membrane and distortion-optimised magnet system. For example, the compact shelf-top speakers cover an impressive frequency range of 35 to 40,000 hertz. Those wanting even more power in the bass range, in particular, can connect an optional subwoofer via the Sub-Out port. The Magnat MULTI MONITOR 220 has a high-quality Class D amplifier with a power output of 2 x 40 watts RMS. The module with all the connections is housed in the right-hand speaker enclosure. This means that the stereo set does not need a separate amplifier or receiver but, rather, simply a power connection. All of the components are perfectly matched and deliver clear and exceptionally powerful reproduction, something that is otherwise only possible with considerably more expensive or larger systems. The left and right speakers are connected via a classic loudspeaker cable provided in the package. High-quality, gold-plated terminals are provided for the actual connection. This high-quality technology and the high-precision chassis are suitably accommodated in a sturdy, low-resonance enclosure made of E1 MDF timber boards. The white membrane of the subwoofer has a stylish look and presents a striking contrast to the silk-matt black-lacquered baffle. Those who like things a bit more discreet can attach the removable front cover with the acoustic fabric via the invisible magnetic fastener. Located inside each loudspeaker is a carefully tuned Airflex port with rounded edges. This enables the owners of a MULTI MONITOR 220 to enjoy additional performance in the bass range without any interfering flow noise. To ensure secure and acoustically optimum stability, the speakers are also fitted with resonance-damping rubber feet. The Magnat MULTI MONITOR 220 is a compact, high-quality stereo system that does not need an external receiver or amplifier and even meets audiophile demands – regardless of whether it´s vinyl or streaming.
