Great Deal on Mordaunt-Short book shelf speakers! £99.95 @ Superfi & P&P

msmuse101msmuse101

Mordaunt-Short Avant 902i
These are beautiful speakers, I ordered a pair myself and they sound absolutely fantastic they've won multiple awards and they're a great addition to anyone's hifi system or home studio!
I use mine as monitor speakers for mixing my music and they're some of the best i've used.
Every where else they cost at-least £150 so a great deal at £99.95.

Heres some advice though (and i know this works, as I did it!) if thats not good enough for you, if you have a Richer Sounds outlet any where near to you, they promise to beat any competitive price by £10, this also includes internet prices. Go to them and tell them about the deal and they (despite selling them at £150) will sell you the speakers for £89.95 thats a saving of £60. They wont be very pleased but they have to honour the deal.
If your really cheeky as well Richer sounds will give you a free pair of sennheiser in ear headphones when you spend over £5 just ask and you'll get!

You're Welcome! lol!

    They wont care - as they are still getting a good turn on something that would be sitting on the shelves otherwise.

    I got the Prestwich branch to match a Sony AV receiver for £60 less than they were selling it for. I expected a big argument, but they simply said what a good price it was and matched it on the spot. Kudos to Richer Sounds

    Or just get them from super-fi delivered and save the petrol and time.

    Heat added... bought these years ago and not had a single issue. Sound excellent even with my average Cambridge Audio A5 amp :P

    get them and bi-wire them up!

    These are old speakers now, and Richersounds would love you to price match with them - they bought the mordaunt short brand years back, and if not resold, i expect they'd be making big margins on these

    Agreed, and as super-fi are also the most competitively priced anyway, it would be ridiculous if Richer Sounds got the sale after trying to sell them overpriced for £150.
    I've got the 904i floorstanders, wich are the same as these but in a cabinet, they are excellent.
    Hot!

    I got these on the Richer Sounds price match for £90 a few months ago. For £90 they are great speakers. Richer Sounds provide a great service without being desperate to sell you something They have got nice stands for them as well Gale T50 http://www.richersounds.com/showproduct.php?cda=showproduct&pid=GALE-T50-STAND
    They show as £39.95 but you should be able to get in store for about £25 as I did

    I've got the older MS 902s that I bought in 2001, and they're brilliant.

    These will probably sound a bit better than the average PC speakers but they are still very much at the bottom end of the Hifi scale. If you listen to a lot of music I can not overstate the enhancements you can find in music you have listened to for years played through a proper Hifi system. Also;

    'I use mine as monitor speakers for mixing my music and they're some of the best i've used.'

    If these are some of the best ‘Monitors’ you have heard I really cant imagine what other speakers you have used. They are not monitors by any stretch of the imagination and will have nowhere near a flat frequency response which is the fundamental principle of studio monitors and difference to Hifi speakers.

    My TV = £100
    My HiFi = £3000
    My Studio = god knows?

    Not everyone has £3000 for a Hi-Fi.

    As for £25 speakers sounding as good, that's just nonsense.

    Good grief, what drivel. At the end of the day we all have different priorities and preaching that ours are somehow superior is neither big, nor clever.

    Some people may have a huge passion for hi-fi, and thus spend thousands. Some people are less into their music, or simply cannot afford as much, and thus make do with a £25 CD Player.

    Personally, I have used speakers ranging from a quid, to a grand, so I think i'd be a decent judge for most of the population! I have the older 902s and they are a cracking set of speakers. Good all rounders and easy for most equipment to drive. A nice balance, and at a price I deem reasonable for such kit.

    What I would say is factor in the price of some decent cables to get the benefit out of them. I run mine with some decent gauge Gale Biwire cabling (The speakers are bi-wired if you wish to set them up in this way)

    With speakers there is a very good chance that you get what you pay for.
    £25 speakers will sound just that when compared to £100 from a reputable company.

    As for using them as monitors there is really no problem - after all - the music one is mixing is going to be listened through something similar at best. In fact 99% of all music these days is probably played through nasty car stereos or even worse, MP3 players and this is what galls me about those in the music industry trying to create the 'perfect' sound with £1000's worth of gear when it is going to be listened to through the cheapest in ear monitors ever imagined.

    I record and mix my own music and I don't use anything like industry standard equipment and I would defy anyone to say that it hadn't been professionally produced. In fact most of my monitoring is done through a mid range set of headphones before it is tweaked for the final mix through a set of fairly cheap (£70) Gale speakers.

    The MS ones on offer are not going to be bottom end - they may be among MS's low priced items but they will not sound as if they were.

    Anyone thinking about putting a mini hifi together using these could do a lot worse than pairing with this Teac DRH300.

    I’m not 'preaching' at all. Just trying to temper some of the earlier comments that seemed to be saying these were the best speakers in the world ever, their not. Regarding monitor speakers, you don’t have to spend a fortune on them, in fact no more than a set of normal Hifi speakers. The point of monitors is they are designed to have as flat as possible a frequency response to help you pick out any problems with certain frequencies within the audio. If you mix your music using Hifi speakers they will be mixed depending on that speakers particular characteristics. The track could well sound very different when played back through another speaker. Most studios use decent monitors when they are recording music but then listen back through a variety of speakers (and even car systems for some Hip Hop production!) when they are doing the final mastering.

    I like Mordaunt-Shorts and have owned them in the past, I am sure these are very good speakers in this price range and this seems like a good deal and as such……

    Mate, there's no need to be arsey about it they sound 10 times better than normal PC speakers, I know, as ive just swapped out mine for the Mordaunt-Shorts!

    As for you sayin that i mustn't have listened to many monitor speakers, you're right, i'm a 20 year old student slowly putting together all the elements of my studio, If you have experience good for you but don't talk down to me just because you've got more than me and you have stupid amounts of money to spend on equipment! I envy you if you have a better set up than me but for now with the very little money i have i'm very very happy with what i have and if you think my music wouldn't sound as good mixed through these as you're supposed beauties I ask you to listen to my stuff which i dont think is half bad for someone who started writing 3 years ago!

    A lot of people on here seem to have taken my words completely the wrong way.

    I like these speakers and think this is a good deal!

    I’m not much over 20 myself and have hardly any income and virtually no spare cash for equipment at the moment! What equipment I do have has been hard earned and added to gradually over the years when I manage to get the money together.

    All I was trying to do was impart some knowledge regarding monitor speakers and their use within a recording environment, and point out these aren’t really the best speakers for that particular job. I was not intending my tone to come across as ‘asrey’ or patronising at all and I am sorry if that is how you took it. I was in fact trying to keep it very neutral regarding my own personal opinions regarding speakers.

    I do know what I am talking about regarding speakers and studio monitor especially and I was just trying to help all you ungrateful lot by giving out some qualified and honest advice. All I seem to have got back has been abuse!

    I use these for surround, pretty good speakers, excellent price

    I love Mordaunt Short speakers. I have a set of MS310's from years ago and they are fantastic.

    well lets break out the violins. poor you- and shame on us 'ungrateful' lot. Next time you feel like thread spoiling with your so called qualified advice (!) just take a cold shower. Nobody asked for your life's story by the way.
