Awaiting stocks to review, the light bulb flashed above [well glimmered]. In brothers loft a forgotten pair of slightly worse for wear cabinet wise but still functional Mordant Short ms 100;s. [20 yrs+]

Hooked them up and bingo ! A sweet sounding speaker that can be postioned [recommended on rear] a mere 5 cm from the wall.

No boom, sealed cabinet, 8 ohm's imp. and as far as i can tell must have good sensitivity. Result, :)

You got it right there Fats2828, speaker manufacturers new what they were doing 20 years ago . . . the so called modern sound? . . . from what I read . . . seems to have a lot of hifi enthusiasts flitting from one brand/model to another on a regular basis in pursuit of what ???? . . . 20 years ago, once we had the sound we liked we stuck with it for years . . .

+1 for sealed cabinets; not many of us have the ideal placement for our all too common rear ported designs. There seem to be few cabinet designs now that recommend close to wall placement, which is what many, if not most, of us need. Reviews and manufacturers specs often don't bother mentioning anything about this.

Gramophone review of MS-100s from 1969...

Clicky
Thanks for that chebby, but it must be a later model than the one in that particular review. Mine measure

H320xW220xD190. :)
