Since S5 is unfortunately little bit too small for my room(but, it do sound pretty good)so, something like S7 would be a nice thing for me. I would pay $60K for something like S7 but, I am not willing to pay $185K for Q7...
But if they create an S7 with performance approximating that of the Q7, that would kill sales of the Q5.

I rather expect a Q6. A Q6 at 90k would be an interesting concept. What do you guys think?

if performance would approximate that of the Q7, it will be at a Q7 price.... there is no miracle unfortunately! Q7 sound is so superior because technology used are different from the rest of the range (and costly)

The midrange seems to be different from the S1, it looks smaller.

S1 is a 2-way. S1 has a 7" mid/woofer. S3 is a 3-way with separate midrange and woofer.

They look hot, and there did seem to be a huge price & functionality gap from the S1 to S5. So far I'm more a fan of the S1 than S5 (in the small-to-midsize room I've auditioned them both), so it'll be interesting to see how the S3 goes. Looks promising. I've been coming around more to the Magico S-series sound. The beryllium tweeters are fabulous, and the midrange is excellent.

Always hated side-firing woofers, so it's nice to see Magico stick with the front baffle. Not in the market myself, but it would be sweet if my local shop brought a pair in for audition.

With a narrower baffle than the S5,one would think this should be an imaging champ and soundstage champ.
