On a mission........
Member Name: tlamp
Advantages: Well priced and good looking
Disadvantages: Can be a bit heavy on bass depending on your amplifier.
The Mission 700 series is a very solid range of speakers, ranging from bookshelf to large floorstanding speakers. The 701's that we focus on in this reveiw are the second up in the range and are meant to be stand mounted ( the 700's would be for you if you are looking to puthyour speakers on a shelf) and theyvare therefore quite substantial in size. ( the 701e's are the floorstanding versions of these ).
The sound is very typically Mission, in that there is a lot of bass but in no way does that engulf the treble and the soft dome tweeters on these (oddly placed below the main units on these). the sound is rich and full of life and impresses in every sense.
The speakers come in a choice of finishes, beech effect light wood or black. On both the drive units and mount surrounds are black with a touch of white to the main drive unit.
In my opinion they are an excellent speaker and they make a great addition to any room as they are very modest but come to life once put to use.
The binding posts are of a very good standard and allow either wires to be screwed to the unit or banana plugs can be used. I would recommend these to anyone who is looking for a bargain set of stand mountable speakers.
Available on ebay at regular intervals for a very decent price.
Summary: Powerful, good looking and well built.
