As I continue to thoroughly enjoy my Magtech Amplifier mated to my Magneplanar 20.7 speakers, I just want to note here how very happy I am with my Magtech Amplifier. Prior to purchasing my Magneplanar 20.7 speakers, I had the opportunity to audition in another location the same speakers (20.7’s) with both the Magtech Amplifier and over $20,000 mono block amps by a very well known manufacturer. We very carefully controlled the listening session in terms of volume, high quality music selections, and in other important ways (listening position, etc.). This was not a double blind test, but a blind test involving me and another well informed listener. The results were completely clear to both of us - it was not close. The Magtech simply blew away the very high priced mono blocks - not by a fair margin, but by a huge margin.
I subsequently purchased a Magtech Amplifier, and I have never looked back. My extremely large listening space is absolutely ideal for this Magtech-Magneplanar 20.7 combination. Quite frankly, I can’t imagine owning another power amplifier. It is, without question, fabulous on every level.

They are beautiful, my wife has happily accepted them. But, what a revolution in listening experience!! The ESL sound was pure jaw-dropping!! To think I have been missing this level of detail and transparency for forty years I have been buying records!

My word, Roger, I can't tell you the pure joy of "practically seeing" Stevie Ray Vaughn's fingers move along the fretboard - it was that palpable on your demo disk. I played Connected - an album of Danny Thompson (the big bass player) and it sounded amazing. I haven't had a chance to listen to old familiar tracks to see the difference, but I will by and by.
I used an independent ear too - made my wife sit in the listening chair and listen - and she went
I am 53 years old, started with Magnepans when I was 17 years old and replaced these later by different types of electrostatics, all from Audiostatic (Dutch).
When Ray Rears delivered these at my place, I did the installation myself but it appeared that the Mark Levinson 432 was not capable of running these speakers. In fact, this strong amp was destroyed two times, with 900 euro each time, both times immediately after switching on without any music or volume. An open conversation by phonecall and some emails from Mark Levinson learned me that this amp was no match for your speakers. I really needed the ESL's.
Ray Sears actually was the one who made me happy, he was a very important part in this, and since a year now I am surprised every day. I like details and with your electrostatics I get lots of it.
This message is just to thank you, as it is not always easy making a major improvement in this hobby that also will work. A wrong choice is easy to make, as we talk about taste. The fact that Ray is located in my country made the difference.
So Mr Sanders, I am very, very happy with your components, which gave me more than my expectations.
Thanks from Cees in the Nederlands.

J'ai commencé mon chemin de croix dans la Hifi à 20 ans. J'en ai 42 aujourd'hui. La maturité de l'âge ne m'apporte pas l'expérience de l'expert pour autant. Avant de croiser le chemin de Monsieur Rogers Sanders, j'étais le genre de hifiste persuadé de l'importance de la source que je plaçais au premier plan. J'ai aussi acheté des câbles à des prix stratosphériques, convaincu qu'ils étaient essentiels pour atteindre le grâal.
Je ne me suis jamais véritablement intéressé à la technique électronique pure, hormis pour changer des condensateurs ou des connecteurs, tweaker mes électroniques sans en comprendre le schéma.
J'ai fini par travailler dans le domaine de la Hifi. Vivre de sa passion est le rêve de beaucoup. Se faisant, j'ai approfondi mes connaissances en électronique et la subjectivité de la hifi a fini par s'estomper au profit d'une objectivité toute scientifique. C'est alors que je me croyais très objectif que j'ai rencontré Roger.
