In terms of terminals trusts Mordaunt on the Australia-born Bullet Plugs – beyond all legends surrounding the connections from “Down under”, a very practical, solid way of bi-wiring terminals. Banana plugs, fork terminals or bare cable here tight circumference.

Austerity reveals himself to the 300 euro of more expensive Mezzo 6 elsewhere: the Aluminium dome tweeter with liquid-cooled voice coil lost his dwelling enthroned on the top of the housing in the Aviano 6 and must do without ventilation channels. For the developer sat on an oval acoustic lens to the positive influence of efficiency and directivity him.

The membranes of the two 17-mid-woofer retained the characteristic Form of the CPC without dust protection Cap. A continuous, evenly curved aluminium membrane that is optimized for high rigidity and wide beam RADIUS profiles of cones are the constant.

Hearing test

With the appearance of Mordaunt-Short came voltage in the second leg. The dynamic Dali took their charms together once again and tried to expose the speaker from England as a buzz kill. Sure, temperament is different than what offered the Aviano dynamics and joy of playing. The homogeneous, completely unobtrusive performance of Mordaunt-Short was in addition to the performance of the Danes roaring up similarly stiff as a delegation of the venerable British Royal family in addition to entertainer Hape Kerkeling.

The Aviano 6 paid attention to the score as a Beefeater on the Crown jewels. You can help a lot on the jumps the restrained and yet soft bass in the normal living room near a wall structure. Slightly arbitrary interpretations of others you must arrange permanently, however, – which may certainly rise followers of certain directions of of listening to, but not that comes close to the ideal of the low-end, like the disciplined, but by no means boring performance of Aviano by Mordaunt-Short.
In the Viking age, England was several centuries under Norman rule. In the AUDIO listening room succeeded the British after only a month, to restore their honour. The complex choral recording, which already turned lecturer 6 of Dali as a stumbling block for the eliminated the chances of victory of Dana, who came not to the neutrality of the Aviano.
Thus, the sensation was perfect: the Aviano 6 repeated as best box in the test victory, was the Rangordung of the actually thoroughly on its head. On the Heco METAS 500 (AUDIO 4/07, 74 sound points) came only Mordaunt-Short. But even Mr. perfect in terms of homogeneity with help from Heco once at the trick caught: the Aviano, smooth, tried to turn the children’s choir from the Johannes passion in a women’s choir. A subject should never try something with the favorite-choir recording of a present colleague. Their extremely precise figure secured the British box at the end but still a point ahead.
