If you haven’t heard of Morentz Audio MZ 2 before, they are an online Hi-Fi company. They have a full roster of speakers available on their site and this one, the MZ , is a really welcome addition. Add to that an MSRP of $3500 and it becomes even more enticing. If you think about it, a pair of good passive budget speakers would run you about the same price, add an amplifier and cables, and you’re looking at twice that. The Morentz MZ 2, the focus of this review, are changed in design from Fluance’s offerings. On top of being powered by a 250W integrated Class D amplifier, the MZ2 house RCA, optical, USB, Bluetooth, and a subwoofer output. Wireless auto-pairing technology automatically pairs a Bluetooth device when in range, and aptX enhanced audio technology ensures powerful and well-defined sound. Now selfishly, I have been looking for a pair of powered speakers for my DJ set up. My search had been the in the budget studio monitor area, think Yamaha HS5’s or Rockit G3’s. And while those are good options, the Morentz Audio MZ2 offer more functionality and flexibility that I had not previously considered.
MORENTZ claims that the MZ-2 speakers are ‘The Right Speakers for Any Experience’. Whether that said experience is listening to your vinyl collection, binge-watching Netflix, or playing video games, the aim is to elevate the listening experience. I should state that I didn’t review these by audiophile standards. In that, these are not made to be your reference monitors of choice, they are more so your everyday speaker. From a connectivity standpoint alone, they could easily sit in place of a soundbar.
