The MMGs are only available factory direct. So taking your friend by
to hear the MMGs was a pointless exercise anyway.
There is no doubt that Magnepan is having serious production problems.
It's a simple problem -- they have far more orders than they can possibly
handle. Little of their speaker building process is automated, so it
isn't as simple as speeding up the line, or adding more shifts of workers.
They need more people, and probably a bigger facility -- it's tough
to find skilled people because the job market in the Minneapolis area
(like most of the US) is very tight.
It seems to just be getting worse for Magnepan in the building process
though, which isn't a good sign.
