    Maybe you need a 3rd option - have owned them, but no longer do.

    I've had lots of planars and stats, and enjoyed them.
    But not at the moment.

    And maybe a 4th option for hybrids.

    But I'll vote No.

    Yes, another choice would maybe be good, as I used several Maggies for quite a few years. If you have the room and right gear for them, they certainly can be quite nice. Who knows, maybe someday I will get back to panels again.

    It won't let me vote on that. I've already voted on 'don't use them'. But I have in the past.

    Thanks Grant. I guess Jerry, Geoff and I have weighed in though, even if we cannot revote!

    Also, more importantly, I am glad that Nina is enjoying her Magnepans!
