Scansonic MB5 B Loudspeaker Running The GamuT

Running The GamuT

So, these Scansonic speakers are designed as a junior version of the Raidho range, originally designed by the same hand but now re-tuned by the former head designer of GamuT. So how did we get here? Well, having sold off its ScanSpeak factory in Denmark after 20 years of ownership, Dantax was co-operating with overseas partners to develop and manufacture products until in 2009 it took over Raidho, and more recently launched the Scansonic brand as a more affordable counterpart to the Raidho line.

And GamuT? Well, the two companies didn't quite merge. As the Dantax announcement of 2015 put it: 'After some years of weak results, the bank and the board of Gamut A/S have decided to liquidate the company, and Dantax Radio A/S has purchased all the assets. Dantax Radio has also hired Gamut's chief designer Benno Baun Meldgård, who is known as one of the very best designers in the industry. The amount of the investment is only a modest amount.'

And the original designer, Michael Børresen? Having parted from Raidho along with colleague Lars Kristian Kristensen who originally brought Børresen onboard at cable brand Nordost before they created Raidho, he now runs speaker company Børresen Acoustics. Yes, still in Denmark.
