These two drivers use very different technology and are quite expensive. For sure they will sound different, but which one sounds better is a subjective question. The sound will change depending on the enclosure, crossover, room, amp, cd player, etc. Too many variables to be objective. So, I will say: I prefer the scan-speak (mainly based on their other tweeter that I listened).

And although I never heard Scan Speak my vote goes to Raven. I've been using it for 7 years now and still can't find anything wrong about it.

What about a Manger schallwandler? It's also a quite amazing product (and expensive)(http://www.manger-msw.com/) What about the Morel Supreme http://www.morel.co.il/index/index.htm and not to forget the tweeters which perform very well at a fraction of the cost of the above mentioned examples
So much is offerered, it doesn't end with a comparison between just two of them...

As always you have to listen for yourself and form your own opinion. Every brand has their own topproduct.

Here is a curve ball for ya.

If you're comparing Raven/ESg;

then consider http://www.stageaccompany.com/cdload.html

end.

If you want high impact, high spl, high sound quality,
high sensitivity;

then consider link above.

end.

If $600 is too much to pay for one tweeter;

then ignore link above.

end.

HeHEE!

I've used several Scanspeaks from the 9xxx series. Both the 9700 and the 9900 is exellent; used by dynlavy, Proac etc....
I cannot recement those drivers enough!

Thou I've never heard the Scanspeak ringradiator, I've heard from others that it's not as good as the price should indicate.

Kindly - Per.
