The new Scansonic MB-B series is now available.
The MB1 B is a stand-mount, two-way mini monitor. The main goal was to create a small speaker that does what it does really well. The reflex port is placed in the front, and it uses special inlays that reduce noise to an extremely low level. While the speaker is small and stylish, the music performance is lively bright and bold, with a bass performance that defies its compact size. The speaker is front-ported to allow for placement near the rear wall.
These already great sounding speakers (designed by Michael Boerensen of Raidho) have now been upgraded and optimized by Scansonic’s new chief engineer Benno Baun Meldgaard from GamuT Audio.
The following changes have been implemented into the MB-B series speakers:
Cabinets - The internal construction has been changed, in order to optimize airflow which combined with the minimalistic use of damping-material has created a very dynamic and linear low frequency reproduction. The old acoustically vented cabinets have now been replaced with a ported cabinet, which is tuned for optimal impulse response - resulting in a more linear, dynamic and detailed low-end reproduction, while at the same time making in-room placement of the speaker much easier and versatile.
Drivers - The woofer and midrange drivers, have been fitted with a new low loss spider which greatly improves the dynamic capabilities as well as expanding the frequency response in the bass region. - A very nice side effect of this is that the break-in period has been reduced greatly (around 100 hours).
Crossover - The crossovers have been completely redesigned. This has resulted in a much more linear and natural sound, which is clearly visible throughout the whole line. The crossover has been designed to time-align all drive units at listening distance - The result is a speaker which not only presents a big and precise soundstage - it also boasts a timing that will make your foot tap and put a big smile on your face!
