Scansonic M-6 BTL

But this is missing the point almost entirely. This is what tomorrow’s everyman system should be like; room filling, dynamic, entertaining, affordable, and unassuming. These loudspeakers don’t entrance the listener in quite the same way the Raidho models can (in part because the M-6 BTL doesn’t have the same natural rhythm), but they are great sounding and especially great for the money. Would I sell this to my grandmother? That might be difficult because I'm fresh out of grandmothers, but I’d happily give this system to a loved one. And, unless they were already an audio enthusiast with their own preconceived notions of what is and what isn’t good, they’d love it too! In fact, my biggest criticism of this system is my typing: I keep writing ‘BLT’ instead of ‘BTL’ and it’s making me hungry!

I guess the point here is my first draft of this review discussed ‘the loudspeakers’ and it quickly turned into ‘the system’, because that’s what the Scansonic M-6 BTL is; it’s a complete system, just add phone or laptop! And it’s a very real, very credible system, too; not simply something that is good in spite of using Bluetooth. The audio world is undergoing great change and products like this spearhead that change.
