Mordaunt Short AVIANO 6 Floorstanding Speaker
Mordaunt Short Aviano 6 floorstanding speaker features two 6½" mid/bass drivers for explosive results from music and movies alike. Computer-modelled bracing design and driver supports reduce distortion and vibration to extremely low levels whilst adding significantly to cabinet rigidity.
Mordaunt Short Aviano is an amazing hi-fi and home theater speaker series combining unprecedented levels of performance, refinement and value.
100% designed and engineered in the UK, Aviano scores instantly with a purposeful, muscular yet refined look and comes alive in any living space. Soft organic contours of the front profile combine with exquisitely finished cabinets in carefully chosen hues.
Aviano . . . A cut above the rest
The Mordaunt Short Aviano consist of an impressive seven-strong range comprising of a bookshelf speaker, standmount and two floorstanding audio speakers, a dedicated center channel speaker and two equally impressive powered subwoofers.
Under the skin, a raft of innovative developments join forces with Mordaunt-Short’s critically-acclaimed audiophile technologies to deliver incredible sonic results.
Key to these is a new tweeter housing which takes cues from the company’s flagship Performance Series. Meanwhile, a thoroughly updated third generation CPCTM mid/bass driver lifts the company’s aluminium driver technology to new levels of refinement and an all-new crossover design guarantees incredible clarity. And providing the ultimate platform for all this technology, a sonically advanced bracing system and internal cabinet assembly increases rigidity to the highest levels yet.
And the result… a speaker range which rewards you with phenomenal performance, sensational value and, most importantly, an immensely enjoyable listen.
From breathtaking music to explosive home theater!
While you might watch the same movie once or twice, chances are you know your music far more intricately and it’s here where you’ll notice the Aviano difference immediately. This is one seriously musical speaker range, offering the most incredible spacious experience, whatever music you’re into.
Carefully developed and tested using the widest possible range of today’s most popular amplifiers, Aviano is guaranteed to offer excellent compatibility with a wide range of electronics. So whether your musical passion happens to be jazz, classical, rock, blues or indeed any other genre, you can be sure it will sound simply amazing.
Thrills, spills, bangs and crashes are what matter most when you’re engrossed in an action movie. Fortunately the new Aviano home theatre range effortlessly delivers detail, excitement, punchy, insightful bass extension and of course, totally accurate sound effects. Mordaunt-Short has been designing true home theatre speaker packages for nearly two decades and each Aviano system sounds like it’s been developed in harmony… and that’s because it has! The front and rear speakers integrate perfectly and critically, the centre and sub interject as needed with precise effects delivering dialogue and lower frequencies with perfect timing.
Take a look inside
1. CPCTM aluminium cone ensures highly predictable driver performance with controlled piston-like movement at lower frequencies and minimal distortion at higher frequencies. Lightweight aluminium is chosen for faithful dynamics.
2. V-Form technology – an innovative driver cone connection to help maintain driver rigidity and results in a bigger, purer soundstage. Varied surround thickness aids pistonic operation and gives genuine timing improvements.
3. High flux density, self shielding neodymium magnet assemblies offer improved sensitivity and better dynamics than conventional
4. Tweeter magnets. Powerful Y30 magnets further enhance Aviano’s woofer.
5. Mordaunt-Short’s 20 year expertise in aluminium dome tweeter technology now features computer-modelled housing for improved dispersion characteristics. The tweeter utilises a high temperature voice coil with liquid cooling and damping for controlled high frequency performance and amazing detail.
6. New cabinet and driver bracing design provide ultimate rigidity and support.
7. Purist crossover design - isolate mounted to minimise distortion. Features premium grade components including high saturation
8. Inductors, DVPC (Dual Value Parallel Capacitors) and oversized resistors ensure optimal signal transfer.
