MB1 B

14.999,00 kr.16.999,00 kr.

The MB1 B is a stand-mount, two-way monitor. Our 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.

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, we have added a carbon sheet to the top panel; this, paired with extensive internal bracing, makes the cabinet inert and silent.

For the MB-1 we have a dedicated stand, with MB-series matching aluminum adjustable feet. The MB-1 also fits the X-1 stand.

    Lyd & Billede review:

    “Have I heard better speakers than the Scansonic MB-1 at this price? No. Would I like a pair of MB-1? Yes. This is something you definitely need to check out if you’re in search of some really good standmount speakers where the price isn’t sky-high. You get a soundstage here that you instinctively like, and it just feels sooo right all the way through. Big applause for the MB-1!”

    HiFi Choice review:

    “If you’re looking for rather superior speakers for use in a small or medium-sized room, and can afford both the speaker/stands package, at around £1,800 all-in and the kind of amplifier you’ll need to hear them at their best, this is a highly competitive design. By combining room friendliness – that front-venting port means that you can use them close to a rear wall – stylish looks and a very persuasive sound seemingly beyond its modest dimensions, Scansonic has come up with loudspeaker well worthy of a serious audition”

    I-Fidelity review:

    The ScansonicHD MB1 B grows sonically far beyond its discreet cabinet dimensions. This is certainly not HiFi, this is High End, intended for demanding listeners. Thanks to its ribbon, it delivers a fascinating resolution of the sound events with wonderful three-dimensionality. The interplay with the bass-midrange speaker is absolutely homogeneous. Added to this are its elegant design and flawless craftsmanship. Equipped with these formidable tools, the Danish manufacturer ScansonicHD can confidently face the market.
