Slight burnish mark on top, and a few warn edges but overall very attractive speaker.

Scansonic MB-1 Monitor speakers with Raido DNA
Ask us about 6 MONTHS NO PAYMENTS OR INTEREST thru PayPal.Call us at 770-667-5633 to discuss these as well as all Scansonic speakers.Underwood Hifi Inc is glad to be selling the exceptional speakers from Scansonic of Denmark. Scansonic is owned by Dantax, the parent company of Raido. Raido makes world class speakers at world class prices. Scansonic is designed by the same design team headed up by Michael Borrensen, of Raido fame.They therefore have much of the Raido DNA and magic that Raido is known for. They sell for a fraction of the cost and offer superb performance for their prices. No they are not as good as Raido but we feel a steal for their cost. Michael said:Having worked with Raidho speakers for more than 12 years, I found myself faced with a completely new challenge when I was asked to design a new range of high-performance speakers for the Scansonic brand. From the start, I was very focused on building on all the experiences and strengths obtained from designing the Raidho speakers. At the same time, I 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 me from the very beginning, that some core techniques from the Raidho speakers would be of 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. Furthermore, they needed to be designed and developed with a speaker driver with a ridged, pistonic-type membrane. WEIGHT LOSS FOR RESOLUTION TRANSIENTS AND SUPERB LEADING EDGES The MB 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. 0.03 g., 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 coloration. WEAVED CARBON CONES FOR STIFFNESS AND LOW COMPRESSION For the MB-series, we have developed a ridged, dustcap free, carbon membrane. By carefully optimizing the shape and stiffness, we have 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.There are 3 models in the MB line and they offer exceptional performance for the money.The MB-1 is the baby in the line and a superb monitor that is the best monitor we know of at its $2300.00 price. They are great for small rooms and wonderful when mated with a sub in larger environments. They use the Scansonic ribbon tweeter and 4.5" Carbon coned bass/midrange driver with overhung magnet system. These are crossed over at 3.5KHz. Resolution is superb and imaging and soundstaging are outstanding. They work great with a quality REL, Gallo or Sumiko subwoofer to provide true full range high performance sonics. The matching metal 2 post stands are $990.00 a pairAs one reviewer said:Raido-DNA- The first time I heard a Scansonic MB-1 my jaw dropped-literally. This was at the fair in Munich and I am sure that many producers of considerably more expensive speakers who heard the small wonders, left the Raido room, because it was there that the speakers were on display, with worried minds. It was a big room but the small speakers performed at a level that speakers at $1600-$2500 are not supposed to be capable of. They were simply one of the biggest surprises of the fair. Have I heard better speakers than Scansonic MB-1 for this price? No. Do I want a pair of MB-1? Yes. This is really something you need to consider if you are looking for some really good stand speakers where the price is not sky-high. Here, you get a sound picture you will immediately like, and it all just feels sooo right.

Grand Teton CHERRY... by Wavetouch Audio..
Grand Teton buyer feedback (May 17, 2015)Just hooked up my Grand Teton speakers. Awesome!!! Room filling sound in a 25' X 20' Room! Not just "room filling" sound but Very very detailed and more Dynamic than most larger speakers. Very detailed midrange and very good bass extension, rated down to 40hz at first I didn't believe this bookshelf speaker could deliver quality bass that low but after 10 minutes and a couple of drum test records boy I was proven wrong. I have had Magnepans and Martin Logans and in many ways the Grand Teton's are more detailed and transparent and Definitely more dynamic. I love them, a very natural speaker to listen to and the sound stage is way BIGGER than you would think from any bookshelf speaker this size or even the Wilson Watt Puppy's , yes that big , don't believe me find somewhere to listen to them. In a big room you will need 15 watts or more. I have run tube and solid state, both have there good points. Watch my Youtube video. Grand Teton buyer feedback (April 25, 2015) Grand Tetons being played with the eico hf-81 tube amp with el-84's. Tears..... So delicious. Listening to that CD you gave me. Whoa man. Thank you!!! Soundguy feedback - GT SE. (April 4, 2015) If anyone is looking for the most incredibly revealing, natural, non-fatiguing, beautiful sounding 2 way speakers that are worth far more than their cost, these are it. They really should cost a heck of a lot more than they do! Voices, instruments, floating in space, pinpoint accuracy, holographic, 3D depth and width of the soundstage, even behind me, depending on the venue/recording. I listen to Jazz, classical ensembles, orchestra, Vocals such as Eva Cassidy etc. Pretty much all kinds of music except hard rock. Drums...amazing realistic impact, cymbals etc, all right there... These speakers are so good, also very sensitive and revealing of ANY change upstream. In all the years I have had stereo, have never heard this kind of realism and quality of sound coming from my system. The speakers are amazing, GT SE buyer's review (Mar. 13, 2015) Just received the Grand Teton SE's with their matching stands. Incredible speaker! At this moment, it's paired with a 10 watt tube amp, and it is absolutely phenomenal. my fairly large living room. Effortless sound, clarity, depth, width of the soundstage is amazing, going way behind the speakers, and behind my head, depending on the recording and the venue, pinpoint accuracy of instruments, and a naturalness to the music, and they are not nearly broken in. Will be trying some good SS amps in the days to come, and will post my impressions. How a 2 way speaker of this size can have this much sound, filling the room front and back behind me, is beyond me...and this is with a CD player and DAC that are old school! I have been around live classical music all my life, (pro musician)...these speakers have that live sound in spades. The build quality is first rate, rock hard cabinets, beautiful to look at, and well made. Product Weakness: None so far. Product Strengths: Effortless beautiful sound, clarity, bass impact, amazing soundstage Associated Equipment for this Review: Amplifier: Woo Audio WA5 SET Amp (Elrog 300 Tubes), Sources (CDP/Turntable): Sony XA7e, Speakers: Grand Teton SE Cables/Interconnects: Jena Labs,Tara Labs, Anticable Levlel 3 Speaker wir, Music Used (Genre/Selections): Jazz, classical, pop, etc, Room Size (LxWxH): 25' x 18' x 25', Liv. room has a sloped cedar ceiling to 25 ft. Feedback from Nick (Speaker professional, Speaker City USA. Jan. 16, 2014)SEs are the best sounding speakers I've ever heard. SEs sound smooth with zero grain and clear holographic sound images. At this price, SE is a true bargain! I highly recommend! Nick, Speaker City USA.(Burbank,CA)"Supplier of fine audio since 1977 GT SE buyer's review (Dec. 26, 2014) In summary, the Wavetouch Grand Teton horn designed speakers are both revealing and warm, have great extension at both ends of the frequency scale, are tolerant of placement closer to side walls than most box speakers, sound great in the near field, are coherent and transparent, have a huge sound stage, and are an easy load for any amp to drive. They are not inexpensive at $3K but compared to others speakers I have heard, they are worth every dollar. Many more videos and reviews ==> click here!

LSA LSA-1 Statement Monitors - Like New Condition - Cu...
For sale is a mint customer trade-in pair of the LSA-1 Statement Monitors complete with matching stands. This pair of speakers is only nine (9) months old and the customer just traded them in towards a pair or Raidho loudspeakers. They come complete with grills, owner's manual, binding post plates, and several reviews. Own this high value and high performing loudspeaker at a great price and already broken-in for the new owner to enjoy! Here is what LSA states regarding the LSA-1: LSA1 Statement - $2799/pr Heralded as one of the best monitor speakers available under $3000/pr, the LSA1 Statements are a musical work of art. Starting with the crossover, we upgrade all capacitors to Dynamicap metalized polypropylene caps, upgrade all resistors to Mills wire wound, and additionaly upgrade the crossover's inductor to a massive 12 gauge air-core ribbon inductor. The higher current capability of the inductor speeds up the response time of the woofer, yielding better dynamics and more control of low frequencies, enabling the Statements to deliver convincing bass down to and below 40 cycles. To top it all off, we then replace the fabric dome tweeter with a folded ribbon design made by Aurum Cantus. Our design team spent countless hours performing measurements and listening tests while incorporating this tweeter. Integration is seamless. High frequency performance is detailed, effortless and extended flat to 40kHz. The Statement monitors convey music in its most natural and uninhibited form - always detailed, engaging, and supremely organic. Several patrons have reported loss of sleep as a 'side effect' of ownership, due to extended evening listening sessions. We receive this as the music lover's highest form of praise.

Harbeth P3ESR Monitor Speaker with FREE SHIPPING!
East End Hi-Fi is selling one of the most highly regarded mini-monitors of all time! The Harbeth P3ESR's have a history of awards too long to mention. These classic BBC speakers are available in Cherry, Rosewood, Eucalyptus, or Black Ash.TAS 2015 Editor's Choice award winner.Stereophile 2015 Recommended Component.The EAR said of the P3ESR's: "I like the incredible stereo image, the speed they often have on offer, the low distortion of a sealed cabinet and forgive them the limited low end. Let me tell you, the Harbeth P3ESR knows every trick in the book to make the listener accept its small size, because they sound a lot bigger than they are. Harbeths are well known for their midrange performance and Alan Shaw has preserved the quality of the larger models is this speaker. Voices are truly excellent and an instrument like a piano is reproduced in an amazing way." "Yes the P3ESR should be considered a musical instrument and instruments never come cheap. They are worth every single dollar, pound or euro."The HiFi Zine said:"It is difficult to sum up what the P3ESR can do in typical audiophile terms because in a way (to put it most simply) they offer the cleanest window onto the music that I have had the pleasure of ever hearing from a small speaker." "These tiny speakers offered room filling sound that clearly benefited from the improved upstream electronics (PS Audio PWT/PWD combo, SMcAudio VRE-1 preamp and Spectron Monoblocks), revealing detail, timbre and resolution up there with the best I’ve heard. "For those who tell you that these little monitors do not deliver bass below a certain frequency I say stop listening to Hertz and start listening to music.""If someone told me now that I had $2k to spend on speakers and I would have to live with my choice for years without chance of exchange, I’d buy these Harbeths on the spot."Whether it's Classical, Jazz, or other genres, the Harbeth speakers perform mightily.

Jm Reynaud Bliss Silver Monitor Speakers
East End Hi-Fi is selling this brand new pair of JM Reynaud Bliss Silver speakers in cherry. As good as the Blisses are, the still relatively new new Bliss Silvers, introducing the new woofer suspension technology and other upgrades, are dramatically better. Not a replacement for the Bliss, which remains happily in the line, but a refined and stunningly upgraded Bliss. Everything I said about the Bliss applies but the upgrades place the Silvers among the clearest sounding speakers I’ve ever heard in anywhere near their price range. Overall definition is outstanding. The midrange is as clear as the Harbeth Radial but both sweeter and robust, at the same time. An overall natural warmth with a surprising sense of ease for a stand mounted speaker. Not a hint of brightness or assertiveness. Listening to a cello and piano duo: the two instruments are each perfectly and separately realized. Treble range is clear and smooth, midrange present, savory, and clear. Bass is solid with good body, tight, and extremely well defined. Clearly it’s stand-mount bass, but the absence of low end authority is not conspicuous because what is there is so well defined. Most interesting – and this is a feature I am hearing in all of the Reynauds which use the new technology – there is a dramatic increase in sense of space and imaging.The Stereo Times said: "Music was delivered in modest, compact and perfectly proportioned fashion by the Bliss. This was particularly impressive when listening to complex orchestration where it is particularly difficult to convey, with clarity, each musical line and strand within the dense undergrowth of musical ideas." "All musical elements were weaved into a coherent, naturally proportioned musical statement; all a result of the Bliss’ meticulous attention to inner detail, colors, textures and its special way with pruning even the slightest twig of musical color or dynamic into a sonic Whole. This was a glorious feat for such a diminutive loudspeaker. I have auditioned quite a few excellent stand-mounted loudspeakers from the likes of Harbeth, Totem, Acoustic Zen and Focus Audio, and to my recollection, none of them surpassed the continuous life stream of vitality, coherency and natural proportionality to images that the Bliss asserts""At its price point, the Bliss is in the top of its class as a stand-mounted, two way design. It can easily saturate a small to medium sized room with its lively, vital sound"Whether it's Classical, Jazz, or other genres, the JM Reynaud speakers outperform other monitor speakers.

They are available in dark walnut real wood veneer, piano ebony (upcharge), piano black lacquer, high gloss white lacquer.Soundstage Hi-Fi said:"The Gold GX100 has been my second experience with a speaker from Monitor Audio, and again I’ve been smitten with the speaker’s wide range of talents. Not only does the GX100 look like a piece of fine furniture, it sounds superlative from top to bottom. Based on my experience, it is a true reference product; that is, someone will have to spend significantly more for only small improvements in performance. I found its sound highly engaging, and capable of holding my interest. I was able to sustain my utter enthusiasm for its sound for long periods without ever getting fatigued. $2195 isn’t cheap for a pair of speakers, but the buyer of a pair of Gold GX100s will be rewarded with something he or she can own and cherish for many years.

Clearwave Loudspeaker Design Duet Six (6) ALL ACCUTON ...
Ask us about 6 MONTHS NO INTEREST and NO PAYMENTS with PayPal. Risk free trial of 15 days less shipping costs. SAVE 50% versus if these were found in dealer showrooms. These will come factory direct with a full warranty. This is an all new official product from Clearwave. This speaker is the next generation after the very highly regarded Symphonia 7R, which was rated "Best of 2013" by Parttimeaudiophile. We feel this speaker is even better, and it's not nearly as large! Bass and imaging is outstanding, and we use only top shelf parts. Lets start with the drivers. We are using the amazing sounding 6" Accuton woofer that has the latest generation motor, and the cone surface area is like a 7" driver-- thanks to the unique basket. You can really hear it dig down deep... down into subwoofer territory. The transition to the 1" Accuton inverted dome tweeter is seamless, and here we are using only the best parts in the signal path. The crossovers are hand wired. The Supra wiring is used throughout. Best of all, this speaker has gone through many refinements, and we built it so that each design consideration was utilized to its fullest potential. This is evident from the hand crafted curved front baffle edges for low diffraction, the point to point soldered crossovers, to the carefully selected and matched transducers. Here's the list of features: Accuton 6" woofer Accuton 1" tweeter Low parts count crossover using the following parts: ERSE air core inductors Clarity Cap MR in tweeter signal path Clarity Cap ESA everywhere else Mundorf Supreme resistor in signal path(tweeter) Mundorf 10 watt resistors everywhere else Cardas soldering all point to point from binding posts to drivers High-end Supra wiring Cardas copper binding posts with gold plating Custom engraved binding post plate and port ring to lower resonance. Double thick 2" baffles 1" material everywhere else with vertical bracing Flared port for low noise Proprietary damping material to turn vibration into heat Size: 8.25"W X 13.5"H X 12.25" D Frequency Response: 42hz-25khz (43hz box tuning frequency) Impedance: 8ohm (flat impedance response) Minimum Power Requirements: 35watt (tube) 50watt (ss). All of the above is $2995 with a 15 day audition period money back (less shipping costs). Try them out and be amazed! Pictured here is the Standard real Rosewood veneer with lacquer finish! Most companies would upcharge for all of these features. Thank you for the interest. Clearwave Loudspeaker Design Jed K. Customer Review: As we progress in our search for ‘better sound forever’ one can actually come across something that fits the bill (in at least one category). Digital will always progress and improve but amps, cables and speakers can only go through iterations on proven themes. So, the speaker in question here is the Clearwave Duet 6 monitor. What differentiates this from others is the truly big speaker sound that comes out of a monitor. Robustly built with a 2” front baffle and 1” on all other sides with vertical cross bracing and some proprietary sound deadening inside these ‘monitors’ tip the scales at over 30 lbs. apiece. At 13” tall by 12.5” deep and 8” wide, they are deceptively heavy and inert. The finish I chose is Indian Rosewood which is darkly beautiful, to my eyes. The drivers are Accuton sourced with a 6” mid woofer and and 1” dome tweeter, both with fixed, perforated metal grills that have no effect on the sound. Out back is a carefully crafted rear port with a really nice looking mounting plate for the Cardas binding posts. As I’ve said, fit ‘n finish is beautiful. It’s rated at 85db and I’m told it behaves more like 88db. I have no problem getting into lease breaking sound with my Marantz PM15S2b integrated (90W/channel). Neither cool nor warm sounding, the music is extremely clear and clean sounding. My in room measurements with my Rat Shack sound meter gets me +/- 2db from 1KHz all the way down to 40Hz, down 6db @31.5Hz and down another 4db @25Hz. Granted, my room is not that big but this is without any room treatment. This is from the listening position and at about 67db listening levels. As I’ve gotten used to the sound, I’ve increased it to the low 70s so everything is taking on a more lively nature and it’s incredibly engaging. Being so clean and accurate sounding, tone, texture, timbre and air are rendered in a big and beautiful manner. Dynamics are first rate because as the lower mids and bass kick in, the flatness of the response serves up lots of pressurization in those regions that I’m not used to and it fills the room like an in house event. Again, I’m getting big speaker sound from this monitor. It easily rivals and betters in many ways an old pair of Legacy Classics that I used to have. The main reason seems to be that this monitor is perfect for my space and I wouldn’t hesitate to use it in an even bigger space. There’s no need whatsoever for a sub as it already skirts into the upper regions of that lowest octave. My room fills in the rest (with slightly more volume I’m getting 54db @ 20Hz just 1 meter from the speaker). Vocals, solo instruments, and intimate pieces shine with great lateral spread and center fill. Jazz ensembles are fondled by this speaker. Rock can be bombastic. World Music (for lack of a better word) is finely delineated. There’s no congestion, smear or fogginess. Because of this I’m getting the best stage depth I’ve heard. Nothing wavers or wanders. This kind of coherence can only come from a great crossover as I can’t, for the life of me, hear one. This speaker speaks with one voice. Soulful and rich (not fat or euphonic) are terms I hesitate to use since they can be many things to many people but when rendered correctly, are apt to use, as they imply a sense of realism (to my ears). When used in my HT setup, soundtracks better my local Cineplex. There’s a scene in “Jack Reacher” where Jack has to prove his mettle to a gun range owner and when he fires off some rounds into a metal plate it takes you to that shooting range. It’s been awhile since I’ve been to one but one never forgets the concussiveness of a 30-06 and the sound it makes when it strikes a 1” thick metal plate. I’ve heard it before on different systems but it never braced me like it does now. So what we have here is a supremely musical reproducer that covers most of the audible range and does so is such a convincing manner. Heard that one before? So have I. Now I can say it with the conviction of having lived with it for a few weeks. I don’t know what it is with ceramic drivers as I’ve heard some a long time ago and wasn’t really impressed. They appear to have made some might big strides since and now I’m a big fan. If their size seems right to you and your limit is around $3K, these should be on your short list. All the best, Tim

B&W CDM-1NT Black
This is one amazing set of speakers. This is the predesessor for the amazing b&w 805 series which is an amazing speaker and its price point is proof. The CDM 1NT uses the nautilus tweeter in this setup allowing for a crisp and vivid soundstage with amazing warmth and detail. The lows are a bit shy but can be paired with a sub if desired, depending on the genre of choice. Altogether you will not find a bad review of this speaker. Likewise you will not find many for sale as people hang on to them for a very good reason. The speakers are over 10yrs old but look like new. Not a scratch or ding anywhere. They are truly in excellent condition.

KEF REFERENCE 1 LOUDSPEAKERS Silver and Black Gloss Finish
I have for sale a pair of the KEF Reference 1 speakers in the silver and black gloss finish. I am the first owner and they are in as new condition. The speakers are truly special-highly detailed without fatigue, mid-range clarity, wide axis dispersion for a large sweet spot, and excellent bass particularly for a book shelf speaker. The build quality and overall aesthetics are amongst the best of any speaker I’ve had. A very modern look with a clean appearance and very high WAF. I found that listening to music, often times due to the wide dispersion, it almost had a wrap-around effect I have not experienced from any other speaker I’ve owned. It comes with two port plugs to adjust for the bass in your room. The speakers are amongst the best I’ve had. Doug Schneider of Soundstage declared the KEF Reference 1 in his review: “KEF’s Reference 1 is the best stand-mounted speaker I’ve ever heard. The bottommost octave excepted, it’s among the very best speakers I’ve heard of any size and price. As its name implies, the Reference 1 can indeed be considered a reference for stand-mounted loudspeaker design.” Paypal please add 3.5%.

Anthony Gallo Strada Floor Stands - SHIPPING INCLUDED!
Selling a pair of new Gallo Strada Floor Stands. I Just purchased these for my new Strada II speakers but unfortunately they won't work for me as I need to have the speakers and subwoofers to occupy the same space and there is not enough room for both. I will pay the shipping and the PayPal fees if purchased through PayPal. Each stand in a separate box. Only 1 box opened to see if it would fit in the same space along with my subwoofer. Only rated 9/10 because I opened one, these are brand new.

MAD England 1920s DEMO Piano White - Small Reference Sp...
Care Audio made a huge Splash at Axpona: Judged as one of the Five Most Significant Exhibits by The Absolute Sound and we also won a runners-up by AVShowrooms. Like us on our Facebook page MAD 1920s is the most enjoyable small speaker I have listened to. MAD many times chose to go to Audio shows with 1920s instead of their larger flagship speakers. People could not tell if they were listening to the $40,000 Dukes standing next to them or 1920s. They sound so big it is unbelievable. My son could not believe when I told him that we were listening to small speakers and not the $10,000 big speakers. These speakers are so musical and have phenomenal bass. Very easy recommendation for a second system and would offer an upgrade in lot of primary systems - they are that good. Don't let their size or price make you think any other way. The following quotes really sum up their sound. You can expect a sound that is smooth, open, natural, clear, detailed and unexaggerated. It all adds up to a package that is involving and coherent — like the original 1920 — but with more accuracy, clarity and even better bass.The 1920S is a ‘small wonder’, with a big sound that outperforms any speaker of its class and price.'This Loudspeaker sounds mature and sophisticated, way beyond its size and cost.' You can find the specs at http://madengland.com/loudspeakers/1920s.php I urge you all to come for a listen or to borrow them to listen to them in your own system. The most surprising part of course is the bass. Full, tuneful and textured. As always - Trades are welcome! Same day delivery arrangements can be made in Tri-state area.

Wilson Audio Duette Silver
Wilson Audio Duette Loudspeakers Price: $12,500 USD per pair asking 5995 Great condition perfect working order, original owner manual etc. small scuff on lower right section. Prefer local pick up in Norther NJ Wilson Audio Specialties Sound Stage Review Conclusion For audiophiles who like big-speaker sound but are limited in terms of space or placement options, the Wilson Audio Duettes should be on their short audition list. Their flexibility also makes the Duettes an ideal choice for the audiophile who may move from time to time and doesn't wish to abandon well-loved speakers. Not only can they work in a small room, but they are also easily able to fill even a medium-sized listening room with superb sound. Beyond their impressive bandwidth and remarkable resolution, the Duettes made listening to music exciting and enjoyable. I looked forward every day to coming home to listen to discs -- both new and old. Ultimately live music is the standard by which audio components must be judged. The Wilson Audio Duette comes closer to bringing the speed, weight, and energy of live music into a listening room than any other similarly sized speaker I've heard. That's high praise indeed. ...S.

Scansonic MB-1 Stand-mount Mini Monitor - created by th...
Loudspeakers from Denmark, created by Michael Børresen, designer of the renowned Raidho speakers.We have all three Scansonic models (MB-1, MB-2.5 and MB-3.5) in our showroom. Call or email for an appointment. Come see us at the Newport Beach Show and win a pair MB-1. The MB-1 is a stand-mount, two-way mini monitor. The main goal was to create a small speaker that does what it does really well. The reflex port is placed in the front and allows for placement near the rear wall. 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 MB-1 are available in black-silk and white-silk, the price is $2300/pair, the speaker stands are not included and retail for $1000/pair (dual post stand) or $800/pair (single post stand). We are authorized dealer in the USA. REVIEWS:Michael Lang, STEREO magazine (Germany) Mai 2015: "...a compact whirlwind! Lively, with the finest resolution, easygoing in the positioning and not too picky about the amplifiers used with it or the other environmental influences. A very successful debut..."Sven Bilen, Jan. 2015, concluded: "...have I heard better speakers than Scansonic MB-1 for this price? No. Do I want a pair of MB-1? Yes. This is really something you need to consider if you are looking for some really good stand speakers where the price is not sky-high. Here, you get a sound picture you will immediately like, and it all just feels sooo right. A big applause for MB-1!" Check out the entire review 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, Scansonic added a carbon sheet to the top panel; this, paired with extensive internal bracing, makes the cabinet inert and silent. Listen to what Michael Børresen himself has to say about his new creation:Having worked with Raidho speakers for more than 12 years, I found myself faced with a completely new challenge when I was asked to design a new range of high-performance speakers for the Scansonic brand.From the start, I was very focused on building on all the experiences and strengths obtained from designing the Raidho speakers. At the same time, I 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 me from the very beginning, that some core techniques from the Raidho speakers would be of 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.Furthermore, they needed to be designed and developed with a speaker driver with a ridged, pistonic-type membrane.WEIGHT LOSS FOR RESOLUTION TRANSIENTS AND SUPERB LEADING EDGESThe MB 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. 0.03 g., 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 coloration.WEAVED CARBON CONES FOR STIFFNESS AND LOW COMPRESSIONFor the MB-series, we have developed a ridged, dustcap free, carbon membrane. By carefully optimizing the shape and stiffness, we have 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.More information on our website: www.highend-electronics.com

Langerton Configuration Holograf - hand made in Germany...
We're very proud to introduce a new German brand to the US and Canada. Langerton evolved around Norbert Heinz, the renowned loudspeaker designer.The Configuration Holograf is Langerton's smallest loudspeaker and the current entry model. It's a phase-corrected Compact-Speaker-System with wide and precise spatial imaging. Listening with closed eyes gives the impression of a far bigger system. Factory lead time is currently 3-4 weeks.REVIEWS:Greg Voth, The StereoTimes (April 2015): "...the Langerton Configuration Holograf is a great speaker worthy of audition by anyone with a moderate space looking for a smaller profile speaker… or just those mildly curious. They played very well in our good-sized loft with a 13 foot ceiling - that’s not an easy feat. My wife agrees that the Holograf is perhaps the one speaker she would select to replace the ET’s for a smaller speaker in our loft… even at the $6k price point. When you give the phase-corrected Configuration Holografs some personal time, you’ll appreciate each persons’ involvement in bringing these small miracles to market. Highly recommended..." Check out the entire reviewHiFistatement.net (July 2014): "...speakers with huge musical competence that entices the listener to continue listening for hours. Not only do they 'play well' with any type of music, they are exceptional with everything. That is, everything except poorly-produced source material – that is delivered without mercy... Speakers for demanding listeners!”Specifications:80 W Long Term Power Handling250 W Short Term Power Handling86.6 db Sensitivity46 Hz - 22 kHz Frequency Response6 Ohm Impedance13 kg Weight (each)25 cm Width x 35 cm Height x 38 cm DepthFinish: Piano lacquer, black or whiteLangerton from Germany is a very new and at the same time a very old company. New, because Langerton just started in 2013. This year’s Hifi-Deluxe show in Munich was Langerton's entry into the market. Old, because the head of research and development, Norbert Heinz, has been one of the most brilliant minds in the speaker industry for about 30 years.He is the founder of the loudspeaker manufacturer ASCENDO and left his former company last year to concentrate again on what he likes the most - research and development. Norbert Heinz asked Walter Langer and Andreas Krebs - they know each other since 30 years, and worked together for 10 years on several projects - to set up a no-compromise production facility and to take care of a showroom, sales and marketing. They were very happy about Heinz's confidence in them and they liked this challenge because music was their first love and they are all maniacs in their quest for perfection - Langerton Configurations was born.Langerton designs and manufatures phase-corrected loudspeakers, cables, component and speaker stands, room acoustic devices, absorbing and decoupling feet and bases. All this crafted in Germany to the highest standards with best available parts and cutting-edge technology and engineering.
