2-Way standmount stereo speaker, 15-150 Watts RMS
Mordaunt-Short’s goal of acoustic perfection has created a series of firsts in the hotly contested high-end sector resulting in uniquely designed and manufactured loudspeakers which have become firm favourites of the world’s most challenging critics.
Now, this globally-acclaimed range is joined by an all-new compact model. Timbre matched to perfectly complement the rest of the series, we believe Performance 2 to be the ultimate stand-mount stereo or home theatre loudspeaker regardless of price.
Introducing Performance 2
Downsizing the incredible Mordaunt-Short Performance DNA to a more compact design was never going to be easy but the hotly awaited addition to the Performance family has truly been worth the wait.
Once you’ve been blown away by Performance 2’s stunning sculpted design, you’ll be in for an incredible aural experience thanks to the three years’ development behind this astonishing stand-mount loudspeaker.
Taking in all the innovations of its larger sibling, Performance 2 benefits from Mordaunt-Short’s patented ATTTM aspirated tweeter offering an open yet detailed sound. The elongated metal diffuser – whose form is defined by complex acoustic principles – floats freely from the rest of the cabinet in a discreet enclosure.
The unique venting system means
Performance’s tweeter literally ‘breathes’.
This is coupled with MordauntShort’s Continuous Profile Cone (CPC™) technology driver. 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.
To develop the ultimate crossover, exhaustive research determined the ideal combination of DVP (Dual Value Parallel) capacitor values for maximum performance. Premium components were then selected to form the basis of the perfect design. The resultant crossover helps Performance 2 achieve incredible accuracy and ClarityCap® capacitors - renowned for their astounding signal resolution - and are used in all critical parts of the crossover.
The cabinet is now made from an even more effective formulation of the original proprietary polymer resin material. Meanwhile, subtle modifications to the internal structure achieve a more effective use of cabinet volume for a carefully enhanced bass response. These developments ensure Performance 2 is completely in keeping with the flagship’s reputation for lifelike imaging and optimal low end reproduction. The cabinet itself is beautifully finished and offered in three stylish lustres; midnight black, granite grey and silver.
For sonic perfection, Mordaunt-Short has created a bespoke stand for Performance 2 which provides an inert, acoustically neutral foundation aiding detail and rhythm. And with their clean lines these stands also complement the speaker design beautifully providing the ultimate platform for Performance 2.
