SCANSONIC RELEASES NEW MK-5 STAND MOUNT LOUDSPEAKER

Danish brand Scansonic is no doubt winning over the hearts and ears of audiophiles and music lovers with its new HD-series. Now, they’ve added the new MK-5 stand-mount model to the range.

Scansonic’s MK-5 is a compact two-way mini-monitor that features the same ultra-light sealed ribbon planar magnetic tweeter found in the brand’s Raidho-inspired M-series. Some readers will already be aware that Scansonic is Raidho’s younger sibling.

That tweeter’s membrane is formed by a Kapton-aluminium sandwich just 20µm thick. The bonus here is that it has an extremely low mass - approximately 50 times less than any conventional textile, ceramic, beryllium or diamond dome. According to Scansonic, this lower mass translates directly into higher resolution and less material colouration.

The tweeter is paired with a brand new 4.5-inch Kevlar coned mid/bass driver (hence the ‘K’ in ‘MK-5’) with underhung magnet system.

Kevlar is a lightweight, durable and extraordinarily strong material and, because of its low mass and very high tensile strength, Scansonic says it produces a smooth, accurate and detailed sound.

Styling-wise the MK-5 bears a strong resemblance to Scansonic’s Raidho-inspired and sleek- looking MB-series, and is available in a choice of black-piano or white-piano finish.

The Scansonic HD MK-5 is available now in a choice of black-piano or white-piano finish, priced at £749 (incl VAT). Price excludes stand.
