We heard you —“The 1.7 is too big for my small room.”
So, we down-sized the 1.7 and called it the “.7”. It was that simple. Most all of what you read about the 1.7 applies to the .7.
Ok, not everything. Because the .7 has a smaller bass diaphragm, it has less “bite on the air.” Consequently, the bass will be less than the 1.7 if you wish to use it in a larger room. However, the DWM Bass Panel can be used to supplement the bass.
The .7 offers full-range, quasi-ribbon technology at a price that some audiophiles spend for speaker cables. Value is what Magneplanars are all about.
The .7 has an optional oval base as shown below for modern decors.
For those that have followed the "i" upgrades of the 3.7 and 1.7, the improvements of the 3.7i and 1.7i were incorporated into the .7.
