-MORDAUNT SHORT PEFORMANCE 6 LE SPEAKERS (PAIR)
To commemorate Mordaunt-Short's 40th anniversary, a subtly revised Performance 6 Limited Edition has been released. This revolutionary speaker now gets the listener even closer to the original recording by revealing yet more layers of detail
When Mordaunt-Short launched the Performance 6 in 2004 it made a clear statement of intent to redefine what was possible from a floorstanding loudspeaker at this price point. The Mordaunt Short Performance 6 duly garnered acclaim from around the world with nearly every respected hi-fi publication lauding its praises. To commemorate Mordaunt-Short's 40th anniversary, a subtly revised Performance 6 Limited Edition has been released. This revolutionary speaker now gets the listener even closer to the original recording by revealing yet more layers of detail
The Mordaunt Short Performance 6 Limited Edition witnesses some extremely effective developments to improve on an already successful formula. Huge investment has been made to produce a number of enhancements resulting in improvements in two key areas - the crossover and cabinet.
Exhaustive research was conducted to find the right combination of DVP (Dual Value Parallel) capacitor values and types for maximum performance. This process has created a selection of crossover components which improve even further the quality of the signal path. The crossover has been redesigned with a new PCB and circuitry for improved levels of detail. ClarityCap ® capacitors are renowned for their astounding signal resolution and are used in all critical parts of the crossover.
The cabinet uses a new and even more effective formulation of the original proprietary polymer resin material while the internal cabinet detail has been subtly modified which affords more effective use of cabinet volume for a carefully enhanced bass response. This builds on the Performance 6's reputation for lifelike imaging and produces optimal low end performance. The cabinet is finished in extremely stylish midnight black lustre.
The ATT tweeter is coupled with Mordaunt-Short's Continuous Profile Cone (CPC™) technology driver complement. CPC's clean lines are fundamental to its superior audio reproduction. The aluminium cone surface and critically placed ridges ensure excellent rigidity and therefore minimum distortion.
This series of astute developments to the Mordaunt Short Performance 6 have produced a loudspeaker that truly encapsulates Mordaunt-Short's continuing commitment to creating realistic reproductions of all types of music as musicians themselves would have intended.
