Speakers Mission Model 70
For sale is a pair of British classic speakers Mission Model 70 in good working condition.
The Mission 70 is an extraordinary state of the art product. The design objective was to manufacture the most compact loudspeaker system which was nevertheless capable of reproducing the extremities of the audible frequency range. This resulted in a true hi-fidelity speaker system capable of handling musical materials with exceptional dynamic range, including digital master tapes, and remaining linear at all listening levels. The 70 is manufactured of sandwiched construction to dampen and distribute enclosure resonances and uses sculptured MDF for the baffle board. The bass unit is a high quality Mission product with a unique cone design and a quality 19mm ferrofluid damped dome tweeter. The filter is a full multi-component design incorporating Mission's own electrolytic capacitors and low saturation inductors. The driver geometry is inverted in the novel Mission style resulting in superb three dimensional stereo stage. The total design is carefully integrated to result in a wide bandwidth system free of unwanted resonances, distortions, frequency response anomalies and colourations. The 70s are recommended for use on bookshelves or stands and with amplifiers ranging from 20W to 75W per channel.
These speakers have an unusual construction, which contributes to their sounding remarkably lively. The enclosure is actually two clam shells -- the front and half of each side covered with grill cloth, and the back and the other half of the sides with veneer, it means that panel resonances are noticeably diminished. They are also odd in having the tweeter below the woofer, which, in some situations gives a bit of time alignment, and means that you listen off axis, which is a bit smoother. The original Mission 70 from the 80's were giant killers. Mission used to do crazy demos with them on the end of $20k or so worth of gear and the sound they put out was absolutely incredible. Even with moderate gear they were a hell of a bang for the buck. They have very dynamic, engaging and sweet sound. There are some tears in the grill cloth, which are hard to see from the listening position.
