Summary: I brought the Mission MX3 to replace my trusty 701s which were the weak link in my system. I already purchased a Mission MXC2 Centre. The MX3 speakers are very solid, well built & look fantastic. Do they deliver the sonic goods? first impression they lack the welly of the 701s, however on further listening they reveal their class. The bass is much more fluid & punchy and less of a blunt instrument.
Summary: They say you get what you pay for. However with the MX3 you actually get more than you paid! I am a bit gutted because these gems are down to £200 and for this price they are a steal! But that's life hey! Audio quality - Have not had them that long but the more I listen the better they sound. Its a pleasure to switch on the Teac AG790 which powers these beauties. Sound is refined and detailed.
Pros: the metal base plates , bass port positioned at top rear of cabinet
Summary: I needed an update to replace 30+ year old handmade speakers which gave good service. Wanted smaller column speakers and these fit my requirements well, giving good clean, clear reproduction with my fairly old Technics separates and Sony CD player. Now just need to get a new turntable to listen and enjoy my vinyl collection again!
Summary: I bought a pair of these Mission speakers to go with my new Marantz system. The sound quality is so good, I am planning to buy a second pair. Highly recommend these speakers to anyone looking for great sound on a budget.
