Scansonic is a baby Raidho.
Designed by the same people, build in the same factory in Denmark.
Latest "B" model with many updates.
Very high tech speakers - they have the famous Raidho ribbon tweeter and two carbon fibre midwoofers.
Shop demo. Very low hours (less than 50). The speakers would be 10/10 condition if it wasn’t for two small scuffs on the side.
MB-2.5B is a slim 39.2" high floorstander with two carbon-coned midwoofers and a sealed ribbon tweeter.
The MB-2.5B cabinet is braced and curved, with carbon reinforcements. The speaker is crossed over at 2600Hz and the added woofer assist up to 500Hz.
The MB-2.5B features a very high quality crossover with top quality components and a complete cable harness from Ansuz Acoustics. The filter has been carefully tailored to linearize the frequency region where cone and cabinet geometry play a role and also to carefully tune the speaker to a natural sounding frequency response.
The MB-2.5B is designed for medium rooms and makes excellent extended tight bass.

REVIEW (for the original 2.5 model, not the improved B version I’m selling):
Alan Sircom, HiFi Plus April 2015, concluded:
"...you won’t find anything close to doing what the MB‑2.5 do for the money. They have enough of the Raidho genetic code to sound like Raidho, but not enough to stop a prospective Raidho owner from changing their mind... That’s the big thing about the Scansonic MB‑2.5, there are those who’ve heard what Raidho do and love it, but hate the price. They simply cannot or will not make that kind of financial commitment on a pair of loudspeakers, no matter how good. Those people will see the Scansonic range as a golden opportunity. It brings them much of what the Raidho speakers offer in a more affordable, more approachable package. Very highly recommended!"

The MB-series features the same good solid, two-way binding post. The feet are machined from aircraft quality aluminum and can be adjusted to level the speaker. For added rigidness, Scansonic added a carbon sheet to the top panel; this, paired with extensive internal bracing, makes the cabinet inert and silent.
Speakers come with the original cartons, spikes, manual and warranty card.
