Don't hear much about Mordaunt Short probably been swallowed up by a conglomerate. I have heard the Festivals and Pageants and really liked them. If they had equivalents today I would be interested
The Mordaunt-Short brand is now owned by Audio Partnership, alongside Cambridge Audio. Very little is done under the brand these days, just a couple of very entry-level speakers. I've heard a pair and they're no more than OK, unfortunately
When AP first owned the brand they produced some fantastic ranges including Aviano, Mezzo and the Performance Series. The speaker market is incredibly competitive though, and there isn't room for endless numbers of brands.
