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.would be of importance:
The New generation - B versions - have been upgraded and optimized in almost all areas:
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!
