FINALLY, someone on here who has actually heard these speakers!!! I feel like I'm just suggesting them in vain cause nobody ever responds when I throw them out there, lol.
As you pointed out, these are some serious speakers.....IMO, one of the best speakers that nobody has ever heard of. Well, nobody outside of the audio shows, that is, cause people who have heard them at the shows are the ones who end up raving about them.
I can promise you you're making a great decision to go with the Super 8s.....that's the model I own and I've been in audio Heaven since deciding on them. I absolutely LOVE Maggies....I honestly thought I'd own them for the forseeable future, but I wanted to do my due diligence before settling on the larger ones. I listened to speaker after speaker - GOOD stuff - and kept coming back to the Maggies. When I heard the DeVores, it was all over.....they were exactly what I wanted. These things do it all, IMO.....they are very well-balanced tonally, they have a nice transparency about them, they are pretty easy to place, they are relatively small in size, and they are great for both HT and music.
You have excellent taste in speakers, my friend
