Scandyna | MiniPod | The Future Shape of Sound

The Future
Shape of Sound
The history
The history of the Podspeakers started in the UK in the 1990’s
when a group of B&W’s best developers - including the men
behind B&W’s legendary Nautilus speaker - were assigned the
task of designing quality sounding speakers at an attainable price.
The result was the Minipod series.
Today the Danish HI-FI producer, Scandyna International, holds the
license for manufacturing and marketing the Podspeaker product
line. And since 1996, Scandyna International has ­continuously
developed the concept – recently by introducing the Micropod SE
and the Megapod Kit.
All speakers are produced in highly specialised factories in
Denmark and by designated OEM manufacturers. Thereby,
Scandyna International has put more than 40 years of experience
with loudspeakers and HI-FI into the brand.
40 years jubilee
The Minipod Jubilee is launched to celebrate the 40 years jubilee of
Scandyna this September 2007.
More than 100,000 Minipods have been produced. First from B &
W in glassfiber, later from Scandyna in ABS. Minipod is manufactured in Denmark.
4,000 pcs. (2,000 sets) will be manufactured of the Minipod
Jubilee. All Minipod Jubilee have a special number starting with
2007-0001.
The Plus X Award
“Cheap” has ruled long enough ­– nowadays, success is again more
and more defined by innovative technology, excellent quality and the
consequential concepts.
The costumer wants again to buy ­quality and abstain from “cheap”
low-price products. Instead of boring mass ­products, real brands
come back in the cart. And with the brands also comes authenticity, service and gorgeous designs – aspects that make purchasers gladly
invest a little more money.
Products from the sectors, amongst ­others, car entertainment,
consumer electronics, will face the decisions of the jury. The
winners can claim with reason that they are the top of their
business line and possess the certain Plus X against their competitors.
Our products Minipod, Cinepod, Bass Station and Micropod SE
have been awarded the Plus X Award for outstanding design.

Minipod Jubilee
We dare to be different. Our vision
is to reproduce superb sound quality
while redefining conventional speaker aesthetics.
The Minipod Jubilee was launched
in September 2007 to celebrate
Scandyna’s 40 years Jubilee, and
how else to celebrate but to give
you the ultimate version of our classic Minipod speaker. The Minipod
Jubilee model is a 2,000 pairs limited edition in charcoal grey with
touch feel, special made drive units,
golden binding posts, golden spikes,
special x-over and new gold logo. In
short, probably the best Minipod we
will ever make.
The Minipod loudspeaker follows an
organic design, where 'form follows
function'. Each characteristic of the
design has a precise acoustical justification.
The Minipod is essentially an amalgamation of three spheres to form
one pressure-vessel, minimizing cabinet vibration, sound radiation and
distortion, allowing sound waves to
move more freely.
All Minipod Jubilee have a special
number starting with 20070001,
and every customer will get a signed
booklet with serial number.
Only available until end of
2,000 pairs. sold.
