    Does anyone know if the new M6 is at Munich? I had assumed the "05.17" was a reference to a launch at the Munich High End show, but perhaps it was just an announcement about when information about the new speaker was going to be released.

    I also do not think it was upstream gear that elicited the sound I heard, since I heard the same issue on other occasions and with completely different upstream gear feeding the Magico's.
    BTW, I totally agree with you in regards to the fact that some instruments sound hard...particularly those that are of the brass orientation. This is not what I am talking about at all, since I feel it is a major failing if the speaker cannot reproduce this sound!
    Dave, the M3 was the first Magico I'd heard in a long time without the treble sharpness.

    Very good dual meaning advertising. It got everyone excited. Round 2 will now start when it comes to seeing the M6 in the flesh,

    Interesting. I have not heard the M3's. I wonder how they have done away with the problem??

    Keith, are you talking about the Q and S series, or do you include the older M5, Mini, V2 and V3? Could you be a bit more specific? I do agree that the tweeter of the M Pro, and I assume M3, is very different sounding that the Q series and first generation of S series.

    Yes, I am talking Q and Sv1 series - although I did hear the S5 on Constellation once which reduced the effect (and Constellation is known to be tame at the extremes). I heard the M3 on Soulution and wasn't bothered by the treble at all. I look forward to hearing the S3v2 at LAAS in two weeks.

    But also, Davey comes from SFs on tubes - that's a totally different sound. Its also not just the extension, but the shape of the treble curve.

    I heard the M3 extensively recently and I thought the tweeter was out-of-this-world good, very powerful, very well integrated with the rest of the speaker, and evident even at a close distance. It probably matched the seamless integration in the M Project

    Did anybody ask the Magico reps why the M6 was a no show?
