Scandyna Minipod Mk II Bookshelf Speakers

Scandyna introduced the Minipod Mk II bookshelf speaker, an update to the original Minipod first introduced over 20 years ago, with improved drive units and crossover. While the Minipod Mk II looks the same as the original, the mid/bass driver has been re-designed and now features a new 4-layer aluminium voice coil to improve efficiency. The crossover has been upgraded to incorporate the new driver and, to make use of the improved bass response, the crossover point had been changed down to 2700Hz from 3000Hz. These new enhancements mean that the Minipod Mk II carries on with the same wow factor for its ergonomic design and sound quality that it was always famous for.

Scandyna Minipod Mk II Bookshelf Speakers

The Minipod originated in the UK during the 1990’s, and was originally manufactured by Bowers & Wilkins Loudspeakers. Scandyna, a Danish Loudspeaker manufacturer owned by Peter M Hasselriis, has manufactured the Minipod since 1999. Scandyna has continuously developed new products; all following the same ‘form follows function’ design philosophy of the Minipod. The brands striking curved designs are engineered to reduce the unwanted reflective internal sound waves that can ruin a loudspeaker’s performance.

All Scandyna products are developed and engineered in high-tech factories in Denmark and designated OEM manufactures in China.
