    Scansonic MB1 B

    The MB1 B is a small and very elegant 2-way speaker, designed to blend in anywhere. The elegant enclosure is curved and heavily braced with solid carbon reinforcements. The speakers are designed around a sealed ribbon-tweeter and a 4.5” carbon-coned woofer. The sound is open, crisp and very dynamic, and MB1 B is able to produce a soundstage that performs beyond its compact size. The reflex port is located at the front which makes the MB1 B a good choice in rooms with little or no space, placed in a bookshelf or on the matching stands.

    Key Features:

    - 2-way bookshelf speaker pair
    - Low mass ribbon tweeters
    - 4.5″ carbon cone drivers
    - Rounded cabinet design reduces diffraction and colouration
    - Reflex port at front of speaker for ease of placement
    - Visually and tonally matches the rest of the MB Series speakers

    Matching Scansonic Speaker Stands included

    Designed for the Scansonic MB-B Series bookshelf speakers, the included stands will both elevate and support the MB1B speakers.

    The design of these stands matches the adjustable aluminium feet seen on the larger MB B models. Every aspect of these stands is designed to enhance the look, feel, and performance of your Scansonic standmount speakers.



    Vincent SV-237MK

    Supplying the MB1B speakers with the pure and texturally-rich sound they deserve is the SV-237MK hybrid tube/solid-state amplifier from German manufacturer, Vincent. Now featuring digital inputs that are convenient for day-to-day use and enable greater possibilities for connections, the Vincent SV-237MK is the successor to the unbeatable SV-237 integrated amp.

    Key Features:

    - Hybrid Tube & Solid State Amplification
    - Switchable Tone Control
    - Class A operation for pure playback
    - 4 x High-Quality Speaker Binding Posts per channel

    Danish design and craftsmanship

    The MB1 B has a solid foundation in the Nordic design tradition. It is simple, sleek, elegant and visually square when seen directly from the front, and curved and organic when seen from an angle. The rounded edges of the cabinet reduce diffraction and minimise the sonic imprint on the frequency response. It does not matter if your home features a modern or classic décor, or anything in-between, the timeless design of the MB1 B will fit in any space.

    The internal construction has been changed, in order to optimise airflow which combined with the minimalistic use of damping-material has created a very dynamic and linear low-frequency reproduction. The ported cabinets, which are 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.

    Ribbon Tweeters

    It was clear to Scansonic from the very beginning, that some core techniques from the Raidho speakers would be of great 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.

    The MB-B ribbon tweeter has a membrane with an extremely low mass. It is formed by a Kapton-aluminium sandwich that is only 20 um thick, and the resulting mass is app. 0.03g, 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 colouration.

    Redesigned 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 MB-B range. The crossover has been designed to time-align all drive units at listening distance. The result is a speaker which not only presents a large and precise soundstage, it also boasts a timing that will make your foot tap and put a big smile on your face!

    Weaved Carbon Cones

    For the MB-B series, Scansonic developed a ridged, dustcap free, carbon membrane. By carefully optimizing the shape and stiffness, Scansonic has 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.

    The drivers are carefully designed to match the slim enclosure. The carbon-cone benefits from a very low weight, which in combination with the powerful magnet system, offers a very dynamic sound.

    A nice side effect of these design choices is that the break-in period has been reduced greatly to around 100 hours, meaning you can hear the best sound your speakers can offer sooner.

    About Scansonic HD

    It would be impossible to introduce Scansonic without first mentioning Raidho. Having worked with Raidho speakers for more than 12 years, this Danish group of engineers and designers found themselves facing a completely new challenge when they were tasked with creating a new range of high-performance speakers for the Scansonic brand.

    From the start, Scansonic's team were dedicated to building on all the experiences and strengths obtained from designing the Raidho speakers. At the same time, they also had to be aware of the long heritage and the Nordic design tradition of the Scansonic brand. The ultimate goal was to create the very best possible speakers within reasonable financial limits.






    The Rightful Heir to the Original SV-237's Throne

    Under the leadership of Frank Blöhbaum, who is the developer of the Thorens electronics and the Auto-Bias control of the T.A.C. tube amplifiers, the circuit design was completely revised and improved.

    In the output stage section, various changes have been made. These changes provide a much better transient response to complex loudspeaker loads. This means that when playing back music, which is at its core, patterns of transient responses, the improvements can be heard by simply listening. The musicality and sound reproduction are much better than its predecessor. Even the most difficult loudspeakers can be powered easily without sounding strained.

    "A gorgeously rich and spacious amplifier that made listening to music a rewarding experience."

    Tube Amplification

    The preamplifier section is fitted in its second stage with 6N1P vacuum tubes. The greater voltage level provides better signal stability. This results in a higher spectral purity of the signal and a further improvement in the fine details of sound. With this integrated amp, the musicality and classic "warm" richness that only comes from vacuum tubes are maintained.

    An advantage of the improved circuit design is a greatly improved signal to noise ratio. It results in an excellent playback quality even on the most critical loudspeakers. Enjoy explosive live performance and orchestration as a result of excellent dynamics. Moreover, the volume control has been finely adjusted so the level can be set precisely using remote control.



    Exceptionally Pure Sound

    The SV-237MK can be operated in Class A mode. Outputting 10W of power per channel in this mode, it has a crystal clear sonic characteristic and completely eliminates harmonic distortions. Class A mode is a feature typically seen in high-end power amplifiers, and rarely seen on integrated amplifiers. Vincent has cut no corners with the SV-237MK.

    An advantage of the improved circuit design is a greatly improved signal to noise ratio. It results in an excellent playback quality even on the most critical loudspeakers. Enjoy explosive live performance and orchestration as a result of excellent dynamics. Moreover, the volume control has been finely adjusted so the level can be set precisely using remote control.


    Plenty of Connection & Tone Options

    Selecting your source and adjusting your sound couldn't be easier with this unit. With plenty of both analogue and digital connection options, this integrated amplifier is perfect for hooking up a CD player or DVD player for a truly spectacular stereo experience. A feature that's now expected from Vincent's integrated amplifiers is switchable tone controls. The front of this unit features controls for the treble and bass, which can be bypassed with a single button for the direct sound.
