Re: Maggie's MG IIIA

I checked our Master Index and found that the MG IIIa was reviewed in Vol.9 No.4 and Vol.10 No.1.

Then looking into the following Recommended Components issues, I found that the IIIa held a Class B (Full-Range) rating until Vol.13 No.10, when it was replaced by the Magnepan MG3.3.

Here is the entry from our March 1987 issue: "Hard to set up, requiring more than the usual love and care, but uncolored and easy to drive. Works beautifully with smaller ARC amplifiers. Tonally very neutral, apart from a tendency to brightness in smaller rooms, which can be alleviated by inserting a 1-2 ohm resistor in the ribbon tweeter feed, and a degree of 'Maggie slam' in the upper bass. Coherent, transparent, musically satisfying, excellent value for money. JA, MC, and AHC recommend this speaker highly. JGH cannot, based on it failing his 'goosebump' test, albeit when compared to more expensive speakers."
