"A Notch Above the Rest"
Forget about having to snake cables through your room in order to get enveloping home theater sound. Save space, clutter, and sanity with the Mordaunt-Short Alumni 3. This slender home theater soundbar creates top-quality sound that will bowl you over, not trip you up.
"The Mordaunt-Short Alumni [series] is definitely a notch above the rest," reports AV Max magazine. "Characters like good depth, diminutive but sharp and fine vocals, accurate texture and grain in the sound makes it a good music and movie package."
"I found the performance of the Alumni 3 LCR (left, center, right) speaker was good with both music and movie sources," notes Robert Silva in his review for About.com Home Theater. "Front dialog in films was good."
Superb Sounding Drivers
The Alumni 3 bristles with superb sounding drivers. It incorporates a full four 3.5" CPC midbass drivers for impressive midrange and bass response. It also uses three 1" tweeters for smooth, liquid highs with excellent dispersion characteristics.
The Alumni 3 has a frequency response of 100 Hz to 20 kHz and 86 dB sensitivity at 1 watt. It measures 5.3" high, 31.5" wide, and 4.3" deep.
Use It Solo or with Other Alumni Series Speakers
To fit with the most svelte and stylish of flat-screen TVs, Mordaunt-Short's London engineers have carefully crafted a cabinet just 4.3" deep. Use it solo for quality home theater sound. Or add other speakers from the Alumni series to tailor-make your perfect system, such as an Alumni 9 subwoofer for extra oomph or a pair of Alumni 2 satellite speakers at the rear for surround sound. You can start small, then add the others later.
Want clear dialog and great stereo without the effort and expense of buying multiple speakers? The Alumni 3 LCR is a serious soundbar. It's a huge step-up from the speaker system in your TV. The Alumni 3 does the job with truly enveloping sound quality.
"The Mordaunt-Short Alumni is definitely a notch above the rest of the shouty, forward and distinctly distorted small speaker packages; it is evolved, clean and serene. Characters like good depth, diminutive but sharp and fine vocals, accurate texture and grain in the sound makes it a good music and movie package."
