“The rig absolutely KILLED this weekend. Really impressed with the consistency in dynamics and clarity as well as the power and punch of the Magellan 800 through 2 210’s. Felt like I had a lot more headroom than my previous 800w rig. Had some aggressive effects running too, and never had to struggle to find a balance or adjust any settings with every switch. Portability is key for me as well and it delivered in that area too – feel like it can definitely handle the road.” – Eli Marcus
