Mordaunt-Short Aviano 1 Speaker System | Sound & VisionThe Aviano 1s sound as commanding as ever, but fall short against the new class-leaders. There is now a tweaked version called the Aviano 1XR. It's exactly 12 months since Mordaunt-Short 's Aviano 1s made their last appearance in our test rooms. They were part of a six-way Group Test that had a bitter-sweet ending — the Avianos picked up a five-star review but lost out in the final reckoning to the Wharfedale Diamond Back in October it was the Wharfedales' all-round ability and cheaper price tag that helped them to victory.

The Aviano 1 XR of Mordaunt Short is a two way loudspeaker that uses a reflex interface to load the woofer unit. Mordaunt Short say that the driver units rolls off faster, supplying less overlap between the midrange and tweeter, improving off-axis response. The Aviano's are in a position to restrict lower frequencies that interfere with the tweeter, giving them a greater power handling and reduced distortion, and this allows the Aviano 1 XRs to play louder with great accuracy. The Aviano 1 XRs are a fairly small size: mm high, mm wide, mm deep and weigh 5kg. They're modest stand mounters in effect. They have a mm aluminium woofer plus a 25mm aluminium tweeter. The Aviano 1 XRs for their size pack surprisingly deep bass but at the same time it isn't over-loaded by excessive weight.
