High-end 2-way shelf-top speaker with genuine cedar wood veneer

Stylish products deserve stylish packaging. We took this basic principle very much to heart when developing the Magnat Humidor: The high-end 2-way shelf-top speaker combines the highest quality components, balanced acoustic tuning and unique design in a harmonious way. Its stylish body made of sturdy MDF wood is covered with a two-tone genuine cedar wood veneer. This means that the Humidor clearly enriches very room, not only acoustically but also visually.

Compact format, strong sound


The Humidor has a markedly compact shelf-top speaker format: With dimensions of just 140 x 245 x 258 mm, it is at home in just about any living room surroundings. The compact design is quickly forgotten, however, as soon as the Humidor starts performing: The precise treble ranges, clearly intelligible mid-range as well as the precise, strong bass foundation show impressively what modern technology and experience can achieve. To this end, the Humidor has opted for a high-quality aluminium-ceramic subwoofer. This high-end- material combines optimum rigidity with high internal damping. The Magnat Airflex bass reflex port provides for additional bass without any flow noise. Used as the tweeter is a silk dome with a particularly wide surround to improve the dispersion characteristics over 20 kHz. Both the tweeter and the subwoofer are driven by extremely powerful magnet systems. Together, the chassis duo ensures the highest sound precision and convincing dynamics over the entire frequency range.

Highest quality components for incomparable Magnat sound


The high-quality design and construction method is continued in the Humidor down to the smallest detail. The crossover was phase and amplitude optimized in the complex development process and fitted exclusively with selected components. For example, the coil of the deep bass branch is of a low impedance design in order to achieve the absolute maximum bass and efficiency. All of the internal wiring is of a large gauge to guarantee low-loss transmission of the audio signal. The high-end connecting terminal expertly rounds of the Humidor with its solid metal support plate and the gold-plated, acrylic varnished screw terminals.

Stylish enclosure for high-end technology


The Humidor not only produces outstanding sound, it is also very attractive visually. The sturdy MDF enclosure ensures resonance-free reproduction and is covered with a stylish, two-tone genuine cedar wood veneer. Added to this is an attractive solid-metal sound guide for both speaker chassis as well as an inlaid solid-metal logo on the top of the enclosure. All of the metal elements, including the connecting terminal, are presented in a fine champagne shade to match harmoniously with the wood colors.

Perfect sound thanks to computer-optimized measurements using the Klippel system


Responsible for the perfect sound of the Humidor are the high-quality components as well as the precise coordination and tuning. The shelf-top speaker has undergone an elaborately complex and time-consuming development process. During this, all the components were adjusted and improved in a large number of individual steps, also with the help of the high-precision Klippel laser measuring system. With the help of this, the subwoofer, in particular, was optimized to such an extent that it extracts an impressive bass foundation from the compact enclosure with high level stability.

This meticulous development, the decades of experience gathered by our engineers and the high-quality components have combined to create an exceptional loudspeaker in the form of the Magnat Humidor: High-end in the smallest of spaces with a stylish wood design.

Bookshelf Speaker with Character:

Magnat Humidor Offers Unique Look and Audiophile Sound

It does not come as a surprise that a Humidor contains precious things. However, in the case of the new Magnat Humidor, it holds highly sophisticated hifi components instead of cigars: The compact bookshelf speaker impressively demonstrates that outstanding sound does not necessarily need much space. What really is important are flawless development, carefully selected materials and components as well as years of experience in speaker development. Even at first glance the MDF housing, featuring a genuine cedar veneer and Champagne-coloured metal elements, shows the high quality of the Humidor. And when this speaker with a height of less than 26 centimetres starts to play – ideally in combination with a Magnat MR 780 receiver – it quickly becomes clear that its acoustical performance perfectly matches the elegant appearance.

Humidor: This word usually describes a special container, often in the form of an ornate wooden box, designed to keep precious cigars fresh and preserve their flavour for a long time. The Magnat Humidor does not contain cigars but the most brilliant, audiophile hifi sound. The new stereo speaker set from the Pulheim-based audio experts derives its looks from original Humidors and features an equally sophisticated sound: This high-end bookshelf speaker relies only on the finest components and exclusive Magnat technologies, resulting in an unrivalled acoustical experience delivered from an extremely compact cabinet. Its two-coloured genuine cedar veneer and the classy Champagne-coloured metal elements show even at the very first glance: This speaker provides pure audio of the highest quality.

Classy looks, outstanding acoustics
With its size of only 140 x 245 x 258 millimetres, the Magnat Humidor easily finds its place in any environment. Thanks to its classy looks, it is a true eye-catcher and adds to the character of any room. Its acoustical values perfectly match the initial optical impression: The Humidor was developed with the aid of a special laser-measurement tool called “Klippel” which helps to achieve a perfect combination of MDF-housing, drivers and internal electronics. The result can be heard loud and clear: Magnat Humidor plays music – no matter if Jazz, Classical, Rock or Pop – like a speaker of much larger size.


High-tech material composite
The unique look of the Humidor is based on careful design decisions. Its precise and powerful sound is the result of decades of development experience and exclusive Magnat technologies. The midrange driver for example features the famous Ceramic-Aluminium-Sandwich cone. This classy and sturdy material composite provides the perfect ratio of stiffness and inner dampening, leading to a very balanced audio reproduction throughout the whole frequency range. A silk dome tweeter with a wide bead for optimum sound emission takes care of the higher frequencies.


High-class components
In addition, the Humidor uses an amplitude- and phase-optimised frequency switch with high-class components as well as gold-plated and acryl-sealed connection terminals for high-end cables. This sophisticated composition of materials and components results in a compact bookshelf speaker with a frequency range of 34 to 50,000 Hertz and a power handling of 75 / 150 Watts (RMS / maximum). In other words: A speaker that combines a classy look with the most precise and powerful audio reproduction.


Outstanding team player
The Magnat Humidor is now available in stores and online at an MSRP of 799.00 euros per pair. Magnat wants to point out that neither whisky nor cigars are necessary to enjoy music with these speakers – but they will not harm the experience, either. A more serious recommendation comes from Magnat concerning a suitable receiver and CD-player to combine with the Humidor: While the bookshelf speakers will play very well together with any high-class stereo receiver, Magnat has thoroughly tested the combination of Humidor with the hybrid-valve-receiver MR 780 and the high-class CD player MCD 750. Many hours of real-life tests with these products have made it clear that this ensemble guarantees an outstanding acoustical experience. Magnat MR 780 and MCD 750 are available both online and in stores. Their MSRPs are 999.00 euros and 399.00 euros respectively.
