‘Does astronomically priced speaker performance without the Apollo Space Mission speaker price.’ – HiFi+
Magico’s newest and most value laden speaker – The S1.
“The Magico S1 Loudspeaker does astronomically priced speaker performance without the Apollo Space Mission speaker price… this makes for the perfect ‘now’ loudspeaker; highly accurate, designed for modern life and without any of the fake ‘niceness’ or ‘impressive’ tailoring that normally comes with a high-end design. Highly recommended!
– Alan Sircom, HiFi+, Sept., 2013
“The Magico S1 Loudspeaker sounds sublime. The baby Magicos nailed the timbre of everything I heard through them. Male vocals and female vocals had a full-bodied, three-dimensional quality about them that just sounded right. Not crystalline, sparkling, rich, nor any other adjective really captures what I heard the S1’s produce. I’ve heard a few loudspeakers that offer greater outright resolution and perhaps deliver a more transparent listening experience, but tonality through the Magico was just superb.”
– Hans Wetzel, Soundstage.com, CES 2013 report (read it here)
“The Magico S1 Loudspeaker appears to have a more lively sound than other Magico speakers demonstrated at shows, but it retains the precision and control that have carved out such a strong following for the brand over the past few years.”

Magico S1 Loudspeaker
Magico LLC, the leader in high-performance loudspeaker design and manufacture, is pleased to announce its newest and most value-laden loudspeaker yet, the Magico S1 Loudspeaker. Following the recent introduction of the already-renowned S5, its smaller sibling, the S1, offers Magico performance at a price point never before attainable.
In 2004, the MINI, Magico’s first commercial product, set new benchmarks for what can be achieved with two drivers in a sealed enclosure, immediately changing the landscape of the High-End audio industry. Widely heralded as the world’s first “super monitor” and one of the most momentous loudspeakers in audio history, the MINI placed Magico among the most influential loudspeaker manufacturers in the world.
Eight years later, with numerous landmark loudspeakers introduced in the interim. the Magico S1 Loudspeaker continues this legacy. At only 9 inches deep and available in an array of Magico’s new M-COAT® paint blends, the S1 will fit effortlessly into any listening environment, making it the most versatile and accessible Magico product to date.
The floor-standing, two-way, S1 incorporates an entirely new 7” Magico Nano-Tec® Midbass driver with the same beryllium tweeter featured in the S5, making it capable of astonishing output. The S1’s new 7” Midbass dual-neodymium underhung motor system with pure titanium voice coil-former is powerfully efficient and low in distortion. As with all Magico drivers, the latest custom computer simulations are used to optimize electromagnetic and thermal behavior.
Tireless research and development in conjunction with new manufacturing techniques have provided the means for a distinct new product that is undoubtedly Magico. Continuing an uncompromising commitment to quality, design and performance, we are proud to welcome the S1 as the latest addition to our incomparable line of loudspeakers.
Featuring a uniquely contoured cabinet drawing design cues from the MINI and M6, the S1 utilizes the world’s first monocoque 3/8″ thick, 12” diameter extruded aluminum loudspeaker enclosure, minimizing diffraction effects, internal resonance, and damping requirements.
