The aviano's are def. a better speaker then the carnivals (not to knock the carnivals, they're still a really good speaker) which really makes it mind blowing that the aviano 6 can be had for less then the carnival 6. I believe the Avianos are their mid teir speaker with the carnivals being at the bottom and the mezzos being at the top.
Mordaunt-short's biggest problem, at least here in the states is that there's hardly anybody that sells them. When I started researching them I think I only came across two retailers that had the 6's available for sale with one wanting twice as much money then the other so it REALLY limits ones choices.
and thanks, I'm really loving these speakers.
