July, 2018 – With the introduction of the new M-Series from Scansonic HD, new materials and designs has been incorporated in the well-known M-Series. A new and different driver design, to reassure an even lower level of distortion has been developed for this new series that includes three different speaker models. This is the next and natural step in the evolution of the M-Series.

The M-10, M-20, and the M-40 are all using the same ribbon tweeter that ScansonicHD introduced in the exclusive MB-series a few years ago. A high-resolution ribbon tweeter which is chosen for its musicality and extreme frequency response and not at least for blending seamlessly with the 4” honeycomb enforced glass-fiber bass/midrange drivers.

The M-10, M-20 and M-40 are all using a single or multiple 4” bass/midrange drivers, with a honeycomb enforced glass-fiber design of the actual membrane. This technology in combination with a powerful magnet-system delivers an open and extremely detailed sound. A driver which is capable of being integrated in a speaker design with a ribbon tweeter due to its speed and wide frequency response.

The new M-series is all about the music!

The M-Series are available in satin black or satin white.  Supplied with a removable, protective front-grill and adjustable feet.

The philosophy

Having worked with Raidho speakers for more than 12 years, we found ourself faced with a completely new challenge when we was asked to design a new range of high-performance speakers for the Scansonic brand.

From the start, we were very focused on building on all the experiences and strengths obtained from designing the Raidho speakers. At the same time, we 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 us 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.
