Danish Scansonic are the sister company of Danish brand Raidho. Scansonic’s new MK-5 is a compact two-way mini-monitor, featuring the same sealed ribbon planar magnetic tweeter found in the brand’s Raidho-inspired M-series.

The tweeter’s membrane is formed by a kapton-aluminum sandwich just 20μm thick which has an extremely low mass, approximately 50 times less than any conventional textile, ceramic, beryllium or diamond dome.

The tweeter is partnered with a brand new 4.5-inch Kevlar coned mid/bass driver (hence the ‘K’ in ‘MK-5’) with underhung magnet system. Kevlar is a lightweight, durable and extraordinarily strong material that was first used commercially in the early 1970s as a replacement for steel in racing tyres. Styling-wise the MK-5 bears a strong resemblance to Scansonic’s Raidho-inspired and MB-series, and is available in a choice of black-piano or white-piano finish priced at £749 including VAT and without stands.
