Scansonic is owned by the same parent company of the fabulous Raidho speakers, Dantax A/S in Denmark. They are designed by Michal Borensen, the same designer of the Raidho speakers and therefore have much of the Raidho DNA and magic that Raidho is known for. They sell for a fraction of the cost and offer superb performance for their prices.
From the Scansonic website Michael says:
Having worked with Raidho speakers for more than 12 years, I found myself faced with a completely new challenge when I was asked to design a new range of high-performance speakers for the Scansonic brand.
From the start, I was very focused on building on all the experiences and strengths obtained from designing the Raidho speakers. At the same time, I also had to be aware of the long heritage and the Nordic design tradition of the Scansonic brand. This time, the task also came with a budget and a desire to create the very best possible within financial limits.
It was clear to me from the very beginning, that some core techniques from the Raidho speakers would be of importance: The speakers had to be designed around a ribbon tweeter that works with at super lightweight diaphragm that is sealed around the edges to allow for a seamless transition to the midrange region.
Furthermore, they needed to be designed and developed with a speaker driver with a ridged, pistonic-type membrane.
WEIGHT LOSS FOR RESOLUTION TRANSIENTS AND SUPERB LEADING EDGES
The MB ribbon tweeter has a membrane with an extremely low mass. It is formed by a Kapton-aluminum sandwich that is only 20 um thick, and the resulting mass is app. 0.03 g., which is approximately 50 times less than any conventional textile, ceramic, beryllium or diamond dome. The lower mass translates directly into higher resolution and less material coloration.
WEAVED CARBON CONES FOR STIFFNESS AND LOW COMPRESSION
For the MB-series, we have developed a ridged, dustcap free, carbon membrane. By carefully optimizing the shape and stiffness, we have succeeded in making a very quiet woofer that blends beautifully with the ribbon tweeter. The woofer has an overhung magnet system, with long linear stroke and excellent bass performance
