Written on: 03/05/2010

I've got a Rotel system RA1060 (AMP) / 1072 (CD) and they are perfect with these speakers (i've got also a pair of dali lektor 2) and it's difficult to say what's my preference...

One of the best budget loudspeakers that i've ever known - in my oppinion much better than the 'WHARFEDALE DIAMOND 9.1'

Written on: 17/02/2009

Connected to Cambridge azur 340A SE & Cambridge 640c V2 using quality bi-wire cable. The bass sounds brash but is fine at low volume? Previous speakers were JPW sonatas and I have to say currently they sound better than the 902i. the speakers when cold sound they are in a fog. For the price they are value for money. Hope they improve or they will be on a well known auction site… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/01/2008

I have a humble system at the moment, mostly for financial reasons. However, it's not always been like that. Where my current set up include denon's mid-range amp and cd player with a pair of mordant-short ms10i's (!) on good stands with kimber cabling throughout (I like the neutrality) I have previously owned Audio Innovation valve amplification (mono blocks), trichord clocked Cd player and ruark speakers amongst other lower 'high-end' components incl. cyrus and audiolab. I tell you this so… Read Full Review

Great review,i can fully endorse the MS10i, MS20i & MS30i from any era prior to the Chinese takeaway ,sorry, takeover, The thing with this MS range is that the bigger they get the less focussed they become but obviously you get more bass. Like stated, get a pair of MS10i on rigid stands 20-30cm from a back wall and enjoy.These metal coned MS look the part but don't generally deliver if you're a serious listener.

Written on: 18/04/2007 by Brenna87 (1 review written)

Well I now have 2 Pairs of these Beauty's, 1 pair Powered by the Cambridge Audio A300 and the other Pair by the Cambridge Audio P500 both pairs have been bi wired to the amps and my word they sound Excellent.

The First Song I Played was Snow Patrol - Chasing Cars, I must stress these speakers must have been born for indie and rock as they are so clear at all volume levels.

I would Highly recommend anyone who's considering a stack up stereo and who is struggling for space and on budget to get… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/10/2006 by woody50 (1 review written)

Not a bad speaker for a bookshelf unit. Warfdales sound a bit better in the treble response, but they are more expensive. For the price, the Mordaunt Short 902 speakers are a winner.

If you get a pair make sure they are MS-902i and not the early MS-902… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/04/2003 by Carl. (1 review written)

They do take a while to run in ( technically they should be used for good 150hours!)Though you can appreciate their sound just after about 30/40h.It's definetely worth the wait. They are excellent value for money,bass,med,high, its all there and can easily handle high wattage amplifiers. The sound depends much on the amp/cd etc that you are using ( and connectors. But if you have spent say about £400/500 for a devent amp/cdplayer,connectors and good speaker cable) you 'll enjoy them at their… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/04/2003 by Hemathri. (1 review written)

This Mordaunt Short 902 speaker is one amongst the best I have ever had. It works equally fine(Balanced) on both high and low frequency. However, you need to try the combinations of the placement occordingly. When placed or mounted very near to the wall, this speaker sounds slightly different, may be due to the reflex bass, you will have not that much treble. So keep it atleast one meter away from the wall and 150 cms above ground. This will be breathe taking. A very good alrounder if plced… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/11/2002 by Phil. (1 review written)

I have had the MS 902's for about 1 year and 6 months and am very pleased with them. I am using these in a 5.1 system along with the 905C center and a Polk Audio PSW650 subwoofer. The speakers had lots of low frequency extension when placed near the walls, I now have them on 28"(about 0.75M) tall stands placed away from the walls...this really helped the depth of the soundstage but hurt the bass output. This is not a problem because they blend very well with my subwoofer. I am using an Onkyo… Read Full Review

These Mordaunt Short 902s are the first speakers I have ever purchased and they are simply excellent. They have an wonderful bass and the treble is sharp. I've been listening to SACD on them and the music really fills the room. They really are lively and accurate… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/01/2002 by indiecheese. (1 review written)

When i first got these Mordaunt Short 902 speaker's home i was stunned by the bass control even before i had run them in (36 hours at low volumes, no way). I think they're one of the best speakers i have ever had the pleasure to listen too straight out the box. On movies they sound clear and give real punch to Dolby Digital soundtracks but it's with music that they won me over. Great Great Speakers!… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/06/2001 by jc. (1 review written)

this review actually refers to the slightly larger 'signature' version of the Mordaunt 902's. being a new speaker, i took them on trial. it took me about 5 minutes to fall in love. yes the bass is good, plenty of it, but still tight and controlled, but the top end (courtesy of mourdants classic metal dome tweeter [ms20, ms25 etc.]) is just as worthy of praise. also they are some of the best looking speakers on the market. i can particularly recommend the signature version for those that want a… Read Full Review

I recently bought a pair of Mordaunt Short 902's. sound is excellent. for such a small unit bass is good, but this is also what lets the 902s down. No doubt floorstanders will make up for this… Read Full Review
