Summary: When i was looking for new speakers,i tried many products in a price range from 120 EUR to 550 EUR.There was: B&W 685, JM Lab Chorus 706 V, Monitor audio BR2, Mission M32i, Klipsch RB-61, Eltax Liberty 3+, Canton GLE 402, KEF iQ 30, Wharfedale Diamond 9.1, 9.2 , 9.3, Infinity Primus 150, Dali Concept 2, and M-S Avant 902i. Some of these speakers i've been listening to 2-3 times,because i needed to be sure in my final decision.And i chose Mordaunt-Short Avant 902i.
Excerpt: Now you’ve made reference to these before… Yes, I replaced my Avant 902s about two years ago and though a bit out of date – you’re not likely to get them brand new – if you’re after a certain type of speaker and on a real budget then these are the kind you can get cheaply on places like eBay (in fact out of curiosity I just looked and you can get some for about £10, so from that perspective, assuming they’re not broken it’s a bargain) so from my perspective they are...
Pros: Good power and would be excellent for dance music
Excerpt: A year ago I suspected that our hi-fi wasn't sounding quite as crisp and balanced as it had, and a back-to-back test with some other bookshelf speakers proved that the tweeters in my old Mordaunt Short MS15s were tired and failing. The challenge then was to find a replacement that could deliver our large and eclectic music collection (from Mika to Mozart) with uniform competence and authority.
