Magnepan .7- MMGi - Mg
12 Magna Riser Multi Riser
Mk 5 stands with replacement jumper wires are available for immediate purchase- (please scroll down to see a few unsolicited owner comments).
The MK 5
Multi Riser is the result of almost four years of
continuing design innovation and refinement. While the
geometry retains the same attractive look with our high gloss grand
piano type finish; the choice of new metal types and gauges, stress
relieving, thermal bonding and resonance tuning techniques allow for
gains in performance that truly takes your speakers to new levels which
creates sonic bridges that bring you closer to the music you love.
We create Magna Risers because we love the sound of the speaker but
realize that the factory builds the design to a price point.
We offer the
Multi Riser for those who good is not enough
and who want
their Magnepans to more fully realize their potential.
Magna Risers are limited edition
designs produced by Magnepan owners with a love for Magnepans; for other
Magnepan owners. We are singular in focus- we only build
stands for Magnepans and will only offer designs we
ourselves would be glad to live with in our own homes.
The Multi Riser Mk 5 benefits
from years of development of the Magna Riser line where dozens of
prototypes were tested until the design met our demanding standards.
We are passionate about great sound and even more about our love of
music. If a design does not help connect us more with the musicians and
move us more into the music we will not make it available regardless
how attractive the look. Each pair is individually resonance tuned
in listening sessions specifically for your speaker model before shipping.
Our designs are based on a
1. The MMG, MG 12
and .7 all benefit from an improved and proper vertical orientation-
please specify when ordering which speaker you own so your stands can be
sized and resonance tuned for your model.
2. Each model of these
Magnepans realize additional gains and flexibility when multiple
elevations are available- with the Multi Riser multiple elevations are
possible. Depending on whether you use a subwoofer or not the ability
to dial in the bass performance of your speaker in your
specific room helps you maximize your speaker’s performance and with
a subwoofer they allow your Magnepan and subwoofer to more seamlessly
3. The Multi Riser allows
for greater stability making your speakers far less
susceptible to being knocked over and sustaining catastrophic damaged.
4. The added stability
also allows for another by product that results from the
improved geometry and very intentional choice of metals and metal
The design allows for a more effective mass loading and resonance tuning
which provide sonic benefits.
5. Listening sessions
confirmed our impression that the solid jumper bars supplied from the
factory do not allow your speaker to realize as much of
their potential as possible. We include a pair of our proprietary
cryogenically treated jumper replacement wires with each set
of Magna Risers. These wires are burned in and oriented for
optimal directionality. Even though a short length we can hear the
difference properly directionally orienting the jumper makes and there are
Magna Risers are
the result of intentional design choices and extensive R&D. We
listened to many combinations of types of metals, metal gauges, and
metals until we found a blend that allowed the speaker to more
fully realize their intrinsic capabilities while not favoring any one
frequency band. This combination of critically selected elements allow the
Mk 5 Multi Riser to cross new performance thresholds.
Each set is sent out to a commercial
metal finisher and undergoes multiple in house prep stages and five
additional prep stages at our coater before finishing. The powder
coating process is a little costly but the end results are worth
the extra effort offering a durable and very attractive finish. Our
metals finisher creates grand piano like high gloss black finishes that
enhance the look of your speakers. Optional color finishes are available upon special order at additional charges.
We dedicatedly make high
performance stands that really improve the sound of your Magnepans but
in the end we feel the buyer is the best judge of how an audio product
impacts the sound they hear and that is why we offer a money back

Magna Risers are limited production
semi-custom designs. They are offered as much as
anything as a way of sharing the sonic discoveries we have made.
The performance gains owners hear seem fairly uniform-improvements in
inner detailing, image focus, transparency, sound staging and overall
realism. Bass and high frequencies are often noted as areas of improvement
with more authoritative, extended and detailed bass and refined highs
being noted. The speakers also seem to play with a sense of added dynamic swagger
that is at times commanding.
The MK 5 version allows
for greater insight into the performance. Some owners have shared stories
of being more able to forget that they are listening to their system
and enjoying a sense of being lost in the music and while we cannot
promise that your speakers will be the equal of speakers costing tens
of thousands of dollars or more; we do think you may find yourself
listening longer, gaining new glimpses of not only what a musician
is playing but also how they are playing a musical phrase or bending
or sustaining a note. Some owners have reported loosing track of time
and listening late into the night. The MK 5 allows your Magnepan
to reveal more of its inherent abilities with performance
that is engaging and distinctly worthwhile considering your modest

“Fantastic upgrade…Magnepan .7 with Magna Risers…everything is
better…soundstage (lifelike size and organized), detail, bass more precise and
the mids and highs very present and “musical”…tonality and transparency as good
as it gets…and the most important thing…without losing even a little of the
“Maggie Magic”…thanks Robert for a great product and service second to one…greetings
from Peru, South America”
“Magna Risers are darned nice upgrades for the Maggie .7. I installed the jumper wires and stands today. Initially just
the new jumpers. Did not think we would notice a difference, but the sound did
improve a bit. Installed the stands. Better yet.
My impression is that the overall presentation is less fatiguing
at higher volumes and remarkably transparent at lower volume levels. Really marked improvement in the
musicality of my system thanks to Magna Risers. Thanks so much for your
"The stands have transformed my system like a serious upgrade in source components might for a fraction of the cost" (MMG owner)
"The Magna Risers are working quite well. I am getting a nice wide soundstage, yet good placement of instruments...the Risers have given a much clearer sound. Wonderful experience and excellent responses." MG 12 Multi Riser owner
"The Magna Risers made great improvements in the Maggie .7. Greater air around vocals, deeper soundstage, improved clarity in the highs." (Multi Riser Mk 5 owner)
had about an hour to do some semi critical listening in my usual seat 9' away,
and the detail is amazing. Diana Krall's live version of "Case of
you" is unreal. Followed by Alan Parsons "I wouldn't want to be like
you" loads of bass detail and huge sound stage.” ( Magnepan .7 owner)
“The sound difference is pretty obvious right from the
start…more detail…the soundstage presented much more organized
and-surprisingly-bigger. Fantastic Upgrade. Great Product and service…and the
treble is more extended. I am amazed…honestly. They must be one of the best
deals in audio per dollar.” “I noticed gains on my sound but without any penalty
to the “”Magnepan Magic””.
You can purchase with confidence- we
