Pretty sure I am in the know on what that is.

I'm 'Silent One' so my inside knowledge won't count.
SALE: Seamaster Season Finale - Everything must go!
It's a very bad morning for sleeping. Can't do it! Returned home late and though tired, I have been daydreaming about small speakers for the rig all day/evening long. In my current environment, acquiring speakers would be ill-advised. I could probably get away with Janos Starker or Anne Akiko Meyers. But, any material in the music library that was meant to swing and... trouble.
Sometimes, I simply tire of listening to cans, instead of sitting in front of the music. Had been looking at powered desktop monitors this month. Earlier today, I decided maybe I'll bring in some vintage Klipsch Heresy II's. However, when I went online, two things happened...and quickly. I tripped over a pair of vintage 1976 Klipschorn speakers and began to measure the listening room. It is small - appx 10'x10'. And a lovely pair of these diminutive speakers would dramatically shrink the room! I kept measuring the corners anyway...
I have until 2 January to restore wisdom and sanity. Then, in an effort to downsize, a pair of vintage Magnepans caught my eye. The seller inherited them from Pop and knows nothing about audio components. Not really interested in keeping them either. However, the price is attractive because one channel is faulty. I don't know anything about these speakers myself. I'm hesitant to sink my food money into what could be a rabbit hole in disguise. However, the price makes it hard to walk away! Hmmm, and maybe it's a simple fix...at least they have a much slimmer profile and the room would shrink a bit less than with the Klipschorn's.
It's quite possible once I fall asleep, I could wake up a prudent man. Or simply a man with temporary amnesia and go about my business, making absolutely no audio purchases.
Klipschorn's as near field monitors....I love that visual.. I wanna see the desk! Maggies need mondo power though....Big difference in amping between these brands.
I've got a 1980 Pioneer SX-D7000.
I don't see a problem or struggle with the Maggie's...may have a problem sitting too close!
Depending on the model, some Maggies will take all the power you can give them. I was listening to the 3.7's the other day with 1KW Monoblock Brystons....Impressive!
