Mordaunt Short M20 (Black)
Speakers Per Pair
Soft dome tweeter for smooth, detailed top end
Although budget speakers, Mordaunt Short hasn't compromised on the quality of its drive units. The soft dome tweeter gives a far smoother and more refined sound compared to hard dome types, and it has a cut-out on the bottom of its mount, allowing its axis point to be closer to that of the woofer. This makes the sound more focused as it radiates from both drive units closer to a single point.
Long-throw woofer for punchy bass
The woofer unit uses a long-throw lightweight bass cone for a tuneful and surprisingly powerful bass. A front-mounted bass port further enhances bass response, compared to the smaller M10. The bass port also raises the sensitivity, placing less of a demand on the amplifier. Deep notes, especially at lower volumes, are noticeably improved.
Like the M10, the M20 has a cabinet constructed of heavy duty MDF. This rigidity helps the sound quality as it ensures the cabinet doesn't distort and bring unnatural colouration to the sound. A neat touch with both drive units is the absence of visible fixings. This not only provides clean, good looks but also enhances the sound imaging as smooth surfaces enhance staging precision. Compact dimensions and a neutral finish help the M20 blend in to its surroundings.
For all types of music in all types of rooms, the Mordaunt Short M20 is your type of speaker!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bo H from Sounds never heard before I bought theses speakers to replace a 40ish year old set of studio monitors (I forget the name as the label on the back has faded with age, I think they were 'Maybach', 'Maybank' or something like that). I thought they were good but my new M20s blow them away, I'm hearing sounds that I never knew were recorded before (subtle reverbs, echo etc.) The bass is warm and punchy without sounding 'muddy' and the mid+top range is crisp without being sibilant or 'hissy'. All in all, for the price I don't think these Mordant-Shorts can be beaten for their audio quality, there might be better speakers out there somewhere, but it would take months or longer to test them all with my home audio system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by IanZ from Compact speakers deliver great sound I needed to replace a pair of 30 year old Mordaunt Short speakers following damage during move. I didn't hesitate to replace with the latest Mordaunt Short speakers as a compact reasonably priced speaker they deliver exceptional sound into normal sized rooms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Steve1211 from Great sound for the size and price I was looking to replace my wharfedale delta 30's that I had had for about 30 years. I read reviews and the mordaunt short sounded ideal for the size of my room. Glad I brought them as the sound is fantastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by speakerbob 007 from Qed M20 Running in times Budget speakers with excellent sound, at first they were a bit harsh, then after 24 hours they started to smooth out, but you'll have to wait till about 80 hours for them to really open up and let the music flow. Qed XT25 sounds like a good cabel to use with these speakers. I ordered these M20s on sunday dinner time and they were delivered to the shop in stockport at 9.45am the next morning. That's what I call good service. Many thanks to Richer sounds in stockport.
