The Mordaunt Short Carnival 2 is a small inexpensive monitor that has received great press. It was designed in England by the Mordaunt Short engineers. MS is a 44 year old British company now owned by the parent of Cambridge Audio. Once designed the speakers are then built in China to offer superb value.

What Hifi Sound & Vision summed their review up with:
"The Carnival series offers the best performance... no speaker package at this price level can beat Carnival."

The Carnival 2 is our favorite small, inexpensive, monitor and sells for under $300.00. We like them more than models from paradigm, PSB & Polk. The Carnival 2 uses a 5.5" Woven composite cone woofer with a Soft dome tweeter. The crossover uses Polypropylene capacitors for clean sonics and is bi-wire and bi-ampable. It is Magnetically shielded for video applications. The 2 is very neutral with good detail and excellent imaging. Bass will surprise you for such a small monitor., USA summed up with:
"The Mordaunt-Short Carnival 2 speakers reproduce music with an uncommon, delicate finesse and transparency typically found in speakers costing much more, which makes them an exceptional value. In fact, the Carnival 2s may be one of the best-kept secrets in recent memory."
