    Hi, for sale is my Mordaunt Short surround system, which consists of:
    Mordaunt Short Aviano 1's in black (rear)
    Mordaunt Short Aviano 2's in black (front)
    Mordaunt Short Aviano 5 in black (centre)
    A pair of Soundstyle Z1 stands in silver

    I will also throw in my old Yamaha RXV640rds AV amp should you need/want it. Not sure what it's like now as it has been in storage for a few years, but worked fine when I last used it.
    All of the speakers come in mint condition, with grilles, and I still have the original boxes. I only have the polystyrene for one of them, but plenty if bubble wrap for the others. The amp has its remote and manual with it.

    The speakers have been well looked after, no pets, smokers, or children in the house to damage them.

    I can do a demo should it be required, just give me a shout.

    After £350 delivered, or £300 for pickup.

    Thanks for looking, any questions just ask.

    At the moment I'd rather sell as a complete set. If I can't sell all then I'm not selling any, as changing to complete Monitor Audio RX range.
    Will sell separately if all parts are wanted by people, so obviously that gives you first refusal on the centre.
    Will sort out prices if all are wanted.
    Thanks for your interest.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Might actually be interested in the centre and the 1's if that's more help?.

    Not looked into shipping costs, could do them both for £200 if you wanted to arrange collection?
    I'd like to wait a little bit to see if someone else wants the 2's and would split, if not I might anyway but not sure yet.

    I was kind of interested in the whole lot here but... I had a little e-rummage and found the 1's and 2's for sale on Amazon for £100 and £150 respectively and the 5 at Richer Sounds for £100. The 1's and 2's were brand new and the 5 manuf refurb. All included delivery.

    So... would you be willing to accept £250 delivered? I don't particularly need the stands.

    That's a little low. I understand mine are open, but all mint rather than a refurbished 5.
    Could do them for £300, but not including delivery (no idea on costs yet). I can delivery locally if that's of any use, not sure where people are located?

    Just had a very quick guess of shipping costs, think around £30.
    Will get the boxes down, measure and weigh it all, and if it's about that I'd do the speakers for £300 delivered. Then I'll sell the stands separately as a different thread.
    Sound ok?

    I've got all the boxes and the packaging from the 1's,but got plenty of bubble wrap I can use in the others.
    According to my measurements and the weight written on the side of the boxes, I'm happy to sell the speakers for £300 delivered, then will sell the stands in a new thread.
    How does that sound?

    The colour makes no difference to me as it's going under a unit!.plus the ones they have remaining in black are either ex-demo or returns!.don't really understand why they would sell brand new ones for less than ex-demo?.i thought the light wood affect was more desirable?.if i had a spare £300 i would buy them all and use the spare set in my bedroom!.

    But just brought some aviano 8's and if i spend any more decent amounts of cash this month my wife is going to kill me!.haha.

    Fair enough, but I really couldn't sell the centre for that cheap. Understand that the colour doesn't matter to you, but the price does to me :p
    Would much prefer to sell all the speakers in one go, but willing to split if all of them are wanted by various people.
    If I can't get £300 total (not including delivery) then I can't afford to buy the new speakers, so these won't get sold. Think it's a pretty fair price for them anyway.
    Cheers again for the interest.

    If rich1985 wants the centre speaker alone for £100 delivered, I'd do the rest for £210 collected.

    Thinking about it I'm sure I could sell the centre anyway at a later date, so if you want the rest for £210 you've got a deal?

    I'm currently umming and aaaring between these and some of the tiny minx speakers in a separate advert. As you can see I'm already sold on the Aviano range, its however not discreet.

    Yeh they aren't the smallest, but do sound better than the minx. They are great by all means, but would get swamped by your Aviano 8's and 5.

    Ok, I'll keep that in mind when the speakers are sold, I won't need them as replacing with floor standers.

    Thanks for the interest, looking to sell the lot though, as if it doesn't all go I can't buy the new speakers.

    Having to close the thread for now, may redo it at a later date.
    Cheers for any interest.
