And it shows at the very first glance that it fulfills all of these aspirations. The most elegant materials in abundance – including a 10 mm thick solid aluminium top panel and an extremely sturdy MDF enclosure in modern fabric – speak for themselves. The 6 kg weight of the desktop enclosure makes it clear how solidly the Prime One is built.
The elegant look is accompanied by a perfect feel. The controls on the Prime One are made of solid aluminium, just like the top panel. The minimalistic, clear operating concept underlines the purist nature of this reference-class Bluetooth speaker. However, it is not just the exterior qualities that make the Magnat Prime One so impressive. Concealed inside is technology of the very highest level.
2 x 2-way for the best sound
At the heart of its high-quality stereo reproduction are the 2 x 2-way systems lurking behind the anthracite-coloured fabric of the Prime One. Typical for hi-fi, we have opted for the combination of a Klippel-optimised, high-impulse 84 mm bass-midrange driver and 25 mm fabric dome on each side. This kind of set-up can be found in nearly all compact high-end loudspeakers, and for a good reason: for perfect, fine resolution sound across the entire listening area, 2-way systems are the state of the art. An exceptionally large bass radiator with a diameter of 130 mm enriches the sound of the Prime One with clean low bass reproduction without any flow noise whatsoever.
Modern digital technology
Operating from the background, while also being an equally central component, is the high-quality amplifier section of the Prime One. The integrated module provides the best sound thanks to Bluetooth® 4.0 including Qualcomm® aptX™. Four separate amplifier channels including active filtering through a digital signal processor supply each individual chassis with the best possible sound without any loss. The efficient Class D technology ensures sumptuous power output from the amplifiers with only minimal warming. In addition to streaming via Bluetooth®, the Prime One also features an analogue 3.5 mm jack input for connecting other source devices. A USB charging output supplies mobile devices with up to 2.0A.
Genuine hi-fi in the smallest space
With the first few beats, the Prime One makes it clear that it takes its sonic demands very seriously. It delivers a high-end, richly detailed, finely arranged and absolutely hi-fi soundscape. The two 2-way systems build up a credible three-dimensionality in front of the listener and bring the finest details to your ears over the entire working area. This precise sound and neutrality give the Prime One a tonal authority that is unique in the Bluetooth® segment.
Thanks to its elegant appearance, the high-quality technology inside and its absolutely durable sound, the Magnat Prime One is a modern and convenient alternative to the classic stereo system and is the new centre of excellent sound in your home.
