Magico, the leader in high performance loudspeaker design and manufacture, is pleased to announce the new S1 Mk II.
Testimonials (on the S1 Mk I)
“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 Mk II Loudspeaker
At first glance the Magico S1 Mk II loudspeaker appears similar to its predecessor however, it is an entirely new design and incorporates distilled elements from Magico’s ground breaking engineering accomplishments found in the S7.
Detailed and extended high frequencies are provided by a newly designed 1-inch Magico Diamond coated Beryllium diaphragm tweeter that offers matching sensitivity, wide dispersion and increased power handling. A robust motor system and long-throw voice coil design enables lower distortion and cutoff frequencies that enhance driver integration with the mid bass driver.
Captivating mid-bass performance is generated by a newly designed 7-inch Magico driver that sets a new benchmark of measured performance. The cone material is formulated using multi-wall carbon fiber and graphene nanoplatelet which combined is 20% lighter and 300% stiffer than the previous cone material used in the S5. The underhung neodymium base motor system uses two extra-large magnets which provide as ultra-stabilized magnetic field for the pure titanium voice coil to operate within.
Both transducers are acoustically integrated using Magico’s exclusive Elliptical Symmetry Crossover topology that includes state-of-the-art components from Mundorf of Germany. The dividing network maximizes frequency bandwidth while preserving phase linearity and minimizes IM distortion. Individual driver performance and the loudspeaker in its final form are tested and optimized for acoustical, mechanical, electromagnetic and thermal behaviors using the latest state-of-the-art Finite Element Analysis simulation testing equipment.
The monocoque enclosure of the S1 Mk II is formed from a single piece of extruded aluminum that is 3/8-inch thick and 12-inches in diameter. A massive new top plate is machined into an elegant 3D convex shape to minimize enclosure diffraction and break-up vertical standing waves. The thicker base plate incorporates a newly designed 4-point outrigger support that lowers the center of gravity and increases overall stability resulting in lower noise floor and increased dynamics.
