"Change of crossover design has turned a fine speaker into an excellent one. The 1 XR is one of the stars at this price level." What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision magazine.

We already knew the Mordaunt Short Aviano 1XR was a pretty special speaker so the What Hi-Fi 5-star review confirmed our opinion that this is one of the very finest speakers in its class!

Based on the already excellent Aviano 1, the XR goes one stage further by offering a number of improvements to the internal crossover. Essentially, this means that the two drive units on each speaker - the bass and treble - gel more cohesively with one another for a clearer, more accurate sound quality. As What Hi-Fi magazine went on to say; "A bolder and more stable sound than the original; stronger dynamics; works well with a wide range of music."

In terms of cabinet and drive unit design, the XR is standard Aviano 1 - no bad thing when the original is still extremely impressive for the money. Featuring the latest generation CPC (Continuous Profile Cone) aluminium woofer, the Aviano 1 XR has that characteristic detail and crispness throughout the mid-range and bass. Helping the sonic precision and dynamic response even further is a woofer brace. This internal cabinet bracing not only strengthens the cabinet but also supports the woofer, allowing it to perform to its very best ability. Mordaunt Short has paid particular attention to driver matching for an even smoother sound. For this reason, the aluminium tweeter features a special mounting plate for a more seamless integration with the mid-range. The cabinet itself is incredibly rigid for this class of speaker, internally braced and made from high density MDF. It gives the drive units the best support possible and manages not to contribute its own "voice" to the sound quality in a detrimental way. As you'd expect, the revised crossover remains bi-wirable for the potential to give even more dynamic sound.

The Mordaunt Short Aviano 1 is still an impressive speaker, one of the best at its price in fact, but if you want nothing but the very best in class, then the Aviano 1 XR is the new champ.
