"In my opinion the Magneplanar 1.7 was clearly the most important introduction at this year's show, simply because it offers truly lifelike sound at a price that most of us can afford. No, it doesn't go as low as the bigger boys. No, it is not a Q5. But, brother, does it play well where it plays. So well, in fact, that It will be a strong contender for my Best of Show Award".
