Yesterday, when I wrote:
Lots of speaker madness coming soon, especially if you like Mission, I was expecting the ones I have, and another pair, that arrived with dead tweeters and went immediately back the way they came. I wasn't expecting the other new arrivals so soon, and I'm very excited.
I have a pair of Mission 707s, for the first time in 3 years. They're made in England, 2 way 8 inch systems. The new pair are black, were refoamed last year by Frank at The Speaker Shop, and sound great. This is one of my favorite Missions, and I'll have more to say soon.Here's a recent reassessment from HiFI News. I'm excited to check them out, and am expecting the Marantz 1152DC to drive them with authority.901s I had last year. In fact they look just like that, but there isn't a single driver on the other side. I know all 16 drivers are working, and expect they'll need an equalizer, or to have equalization applied. I have to solder some cables for them, because they only accept 1/4 inck mono jacks, but I think they're going to be fun.
