Don't recall if it was Sam Tellig or Wes Phillips at Stereophile who always thought highly (to the point of owning a pair) of Triangle speakers. Would like to find a local dealer in order to listen to the Magellan and Duetto. Like Paradigm, they've certainly gone 'up-scale' from what they used to offer in NA.

Duettos are the smallest Magellan range speakers. Although these are some very exciting speakers that also go pretty deep, I highly recommend the bigger brothers (Cello, Quator, Concerto)... This standfloors know how to produce big, dynamic, fast and engaging sounds as few other speakers do at least in this price range.

P.S. No matter what the YouTube video shows or what the article claims, the Magellans can't sing with an 8W per channel amplifier even though they have high sensitivity. They are no easy load and open up with lots of power... And I'm sure those Nordost cables aren't the best match for such energetic speakers either... It's easy to put this speakers to shame matching them the wrong way.

Did anyone pay a visit to the New York Audio Show 2017 Adirondack Audio room?
