FOR SALE: One pair of modified "recapped" Magnepan planar Magnestand speakers (aka Magnastand). The panels have been placed in a custom wood frame and sturdy base and a high-end custom crossover (high-end audiophile caps in an outboard hardwood enclosure) has been utilized. Appears to be a Peter Gunn mod, but that is not documented. These have the best looking frames I have seen on Magnestands (imho,of course). Purchased at Van L Speakerworks in Chicago.
From a previous listing: "These are a gorgeous set of speakers
that truly sound as good as they look. For those of you not familiar with
"Magnestand"; these are heavly modified / upgraded Maggies that are
rebuilt in beautiful wood frames, extra bracing and updated crossovers. These
are easily some of the best-sound speakers that I've heard in some time.
There's no reason to write a book about their various sonic traits and
superlatives... these just sound like music... plain and simple. Real, live
music in your living room in a beautiful packaging. Completely custom from top
to bottom - taking the look and performance of classic Magnepan speakers to new
heights. "Peter Gunn" is a genius and knows Magnepan speakers as well as anyone."
Dimensions: about 56" tall, 16.5" wide and the base is about 16" deep. Fairly easy to handle with the angled braces.
Condition: Rating at 8. See photos. Keep in mind that this is a handcrafted product and may not have "factory" finish standards.
For pick up in Chicago. Audition should be available (but depends on my moving schedule). Or I can drop the speakers off in Chicago at FedEx,UPS or other shipper of your choice and you can have them packaged and shipped.
Feel free to ask questions.
Thanks for looking.
