Those Magico's are one of the few high-high-end speakers that actually look like they have really loud bass (basshead here).
Funny how when people look at (the same) something they see different things. I used to own a horn system with a similar midbass horn, except mine was folded into an L shape as I didn't have the room depth. My first though was 'no way a single direct radiator 15" will keep up with the rest of that system'.

Also, wayyy wayyy back in this thread, back at post #2, with those Stradavari's... those are some of the nicest looking speakers I've ever seen. Ever.
This I agree with. Those SF's are really very beautiful and are the aesthetic inspiration for a future build of mine.

What is it that you guys like about those Stradavari's? They seem very...complicated. I am naturally drawn toward simplistic aesthetics when it comes to speaker design. That is what I love about the Boston Acoustic Classic Series speakers; you can't get more basic than that.

(In fact, I liked them so much I just went out and bought a pair)

Seeing what is out there just makes me feel good knowing at least I have a room and a system to listen to. I could never even imagine spending that kind of dough on the cables alone. Crazy people in this world!

Speaking only for myself, I love the wide baffle look, the lower baffle step and diffraction. If you have ever seen an SF speaker in the flesh, they are very beautiful and the craftsmanship is not in question. The design and choice of materials and their application in the design makes these one of the very best looking speakers I have ever seen.

One of my first DIY efforts involved a wide baffle line source modelled loosely around the Infinity IRS and big Genesis designs from the 80's. narrow baffle speakers are more common today for a simple reason - they are easier to sell as they are easier to integrate into the typical multi purpose living areas where most people listen or watch movies.

Most speakers are built as simple boxes because they are easy and cheap to build, not necessarily because they perform best. I find them mostly boring looking.

^^^ I am only speaking for myself and not commenting upon anyone else's taste or choices.

Re: Rare, weird, unusual, amazing and/or interesting...

I feel that all of my speakers fall into the Rare, weird, unusual, amazing and/or interesting...category:
Frontspeakers:
Carlsson oa51.3+ 2pcs 10" Aurasound subwoofers @80Hz 24db LR per side

surroundspeakers
Sonab OA-116

(Two pairs under renovation, made in 1976)

Current project:
"The Two-Way"

potential to be really really good!
Sounds better than it looks

probably weird,rare and interesting for you!

Talk about great sound dispersion—I bet those Sonab OA-116 speakers put sound in every square inch of that room.
