In 2004, something of a revolution took place at Mordaunt Short. The legendary loudspeaker manufacturer produced the flagship Performance model which re-wrote the rule book and used some truly groundbreaking technologies never before seen in the hi-fi world. Performance has since won countless awards around the globe and is considered to be a modern classic.
Many of Performance's most significant features have now trickled down to the company's new range - Mezzo. All this means that true hi-fi bliss is available to a wider audience, most notably you and all at a phenomenally affordable price.
Comprising a full loudspeaker series and a blend of scintillating sound and truly graceful aesthetics, Mezzo affords you the opportunity to experience music and movies as those involved intended, and what can be better than that?
The Mordaunt Short Mezzo 5 is a dedicated centre in woofer-tweeter-woofer configuration designed to deal with the demands of dialogue in movies.
Its ATT aluminum tweeter integrates fantastically with the rest of the range to aid front field energy which in turn produces an awesome home cinema soundstage.
The cabinet is a closed box design while the infinite front baffle guarantees consistent dispersion characteristics and performance. In short, your movie collection will burst into your living room!

Established in 1967, Mordaunt
Short is responsible for the development of some of the world’s most critically
From the beginning, Mordaunt Short has produced loudspeakers
of the very highest order which is underlined by that fact that our first ever
range enjoyed exclusive distribution through Harrods of Knightsbridge, London.
The very essence of Mordaunt Short can be found in each and
every speaker they create. Whilst Mordaunt Short is proud of their heritage
and the fact that there one of the few remaining British owned and engineered
speaker brands, they never rest on tradition. Instead, Mordaunt Short is always
in search of new technologies to take you as close as possible to the music
An incredibly forward-thinking company, Mordaunt Short produces
some of the most technologically advanced loudspeakers available today. All
Mordaunt Short products are a testament to this innovative spirit and style
but it is most apparent in models such as Genie and Performance. Their expertise
allows them to constantly challenge the status quo – does a speaker really
have to be made from wood? Why does it have to be rectangular?
But the most important resource they have, are the people who
work for them. With a dedicated team of ten engineers and a purpose-built research
and development centre in London, Mordaunt Short has some of the best resources
in the industry.
With an engineering pedigree second-to-none, you won’t
be surprised to hear that Mordaunt Short designs each and every component in
their products to their own specifications.
After a lengthy development programme, all Mordaunt Short products
are put before the ultimate test – the human ear. And not just any ear
will do. Before you get to listen to Mordaunt Short speakers, Mordaunt Short’s
head of acoustic engineering signs off each and every design.
Since its foundation, Mordaunt Short has produced legendary
designs including the Festival, Carnival and Pageant models of the early-Seventies
which was followed by the Pearl Edition range of the late-Nineties right through
to today’s Performance and Genie ranges. Every one of these models was
conceived from one continuing vision - to build the best loudspeaker money can
buy, combining engineering excellence, an enthusiasm for innovation and carefully
controlled manufacturing processes.
