Scansonic M20 Loudspeaker Review
October 28, 2021 § Leave a comment
Fed with the familiar symphonic work-out that is Britten’s ‘Young Person’s Guide To The Orchestra’, here played by the Kansas City Symphony Orchestra under conductor Michael Stern [from Britten’s Orchestra, Reference Recordings RR-120SACD], the strength of these Scansonic speakers is in the detail they bring out in the various instrumental groups, and their speed and lightness of touch. But as the great final fugue builds to its climax, one can’t help but want for a bit more grunt and scale.
That said, these speakers don’t need massive amplifier power to do their stuff. With a Supernait 3 integrated from Naim, which admittedly falls below the lower limit of Scansonic’s suggestion, they were easily capable of going more than loud enough with no signs of stress, while still sounding both open and dynamic.
