Reviewers from hifinews have found the following***:
The Magico A1 is a supreme vocal performer, though not, in this case, because the midband is emphasised while bass and treble are in recession. The A1s cut through what might have descended into murk to expose a level of detail, of structured edginess and complexity that typically escapes many larger but no less costly loudspeakers.
