PostSubject: What makes MGA different   Sun Jun 03, 2012 4:36 pm

How has MGA been able to come to the conclusions we have over the last 30 years?

MGA has always been on the inside looking out and the outside looking in. I have always based decisions on what sounds the best from the point of what is real first then making it tunable so that an individual can add any flavor they want. Lets not fool ourselves, it is all about taste or there would not be so many different pieces to the component, speaker, accessory list. MGA has always looked at high end audio from a different view point than the other companies. We look at all contributions to audio as being a part of the big picture but are not hung up on "the absolute sound". Why? If the industry was really after the absolute we would all have sound stages that were as big as a performance hall, or as big as the recording room. I have personally had rooms that cast what the industry calls the biggest sound stages in the world according to the press, pros, and performers but don't necessarily call these the absolute sound. MGA has had over 70 listening rooms built and designed by me to develop products. That's more than any other company in the history of the audiophile world. We have also had many prebuilt demo rooms that we did listening/testing/developing in to assure that no audio stone has been unturned. We have owned 8 High End Audio retail store fronts, and have owned 4 recording studios. We have been the acousticians for musical instrument companies, and music teaching facilities. Our products have been sold in 37 countries and 650 retailers.

We answer the difficult unanswered questions of high end audio and don't design products merely based on our own living rooms. In other words we are not close minded and see the audio industry as one big industry and not this little corner we call high end home audio. We know stereo products should be built like musical instruments if they are to sound like music. We spend much of our time de-bunking audiophile myths and are not impressed by anything but the ability for a component to deliver great sound. We also realize that great sound needs to be shipped and that most audio products that are built are based on look appeal and shipping requirements and not necessarily good sound. We have shown in our testing that the high end audio industry has a misunderstanding of the word distortion and as a result makes many components that are far too dampened to produce real music. In fact these components produce the distortion of missing information which ends up creating miniature sound stages and artificially small instruments.

Reading our forums you can see for yourselves how listeners all over the word have fallen into the common pitfalls of high end audiophile misconceptions and when they undo the bad that has been done their systems perform many times better than typical high end audio components.

Faceplates: we did tests of over one hundred components and found that almost every faceplate made in the audiophile world hurts the sound of the audio system.

Transformers: should be at least 4" from any circuitry and not in the same housing as the rest of the circuit chassis support system.

Interconnect barrels: interconnect barrels covering the RCA plug cause distortion.

Glue: the use of glue on crossovers and electronic parts add to the amount of signal loss.

Silver solder: solder using high contents of silver shift frequencies up.

MDF: heavy MDF speaker cabinets decrease sound stage size, shrinking the sound of instruments.

Oxygen free copper: causes holes in the sound stage.

Component screws: should only be finger tight if not removed altogether on metal or plastic chassis.

Stuffed speaker cabinets: need to be re-stuffed to adapt to different room dimensions.

Room walls: all room walls have different frequency codes and no speaker placement formulas make compensation for this.
