Scansonic M40

The M40 is a powerful and elegant 2.5-way, floorstanding speaker pair. The speakers each feature a high-resolution ribbon tweeter, normally only seen in much higher priced products. In the M40, the tweeter blends seamlessly with two 4” honeycomb enforced glass-fibre midrange/ woofer drivers, arranged in a MTM configuration with the tweeter in the middle. The two midrange/woofer drivers are supported in the lower frequency regions by an array of 2 dedicated bass drivers.

Don’t let the slim and elegant appearance fool you - the M40 system will really rock the house when all the drivers are put to work.

Scandinavian design and build quality

The M-Series speakers have a solid foundation in the Nordic design tradition. They are simple, sleek, elegant, and they elevate any room they are installed in.

All of the loudspeakers in the new Scansonic M-Series have protective front grilles that are easily removable, as well as adjustable feet.

Ribbon Tweeters

The M40 features the same Kapton/aluminium sandwich membrane sealed ribbon tweeter that can be found in Scansonic's higher-priced MB-Series speakers. This high-resolution tweeter promises an extremely fast, vivid and wide frequency response, allowing for an exceptionally open and detailed sound at the top end of the frequency spectrum.

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 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. 0.03g, 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.

Glass Fibre Cones

The unique ribbon tweeter is not the only redesigned technology present in Scansonic's new range of speakers. The new M-Series speakers feature even more agile, open and three-dimensional midrange, along with a cleaner, faster and more deeply visceral bass with a more significant punch and attack. These improvements are thanks to the refined bass and midrange drivers that feature advanced honeycomb-enforced glass-fibre cones, combined with a powerful magnet system.

The M40's dual midrange/woofer drivers are supported in the lower frequency regions by an array of 2 dedicated bass drivers, which provides smooth, full-range sound.

The latest evolution of the M-Series

The latest evolution of Scansonic HD's M-series loudspeakers is now available in Australia. The M10, M20, and M40 are the latest loudspeakers from Scandanavian brand, Scansonic HD. Scansonic's three new models are updates to the M5, M6 and M9 in the series.

Like the MB-B Series, the new M-Series is based on technologies that originated in the world-renowned Raidho Acoustics speakers, most notably, the signature ribbon tweeter. The M-Series features a range of affordable speakers where the goal is to offer a very high-quality level, all wrapped in classical and authentic Scandinavian design.

In the words of the manufacturer, the new trio is described as a “must audition for budget-conscious music lovers who covet the superb sound of sister brands Raidho and Gamut, which share the same designer”.

Each of the new M-Series speakers is available in silk white or black. The design and finish of these speakers result in a sophisticated and clean look that will compliment any home or theatre space.

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.
