2-way reflex loudspeaker system (1989)
Introduced as the 764 in 1988, the 764i has been further refined to include a larger internal volume for deeper bass extension. Efficiency is improved by 2dB endowing the 764i with an even wider dynamic range.
The 764i introduces a new cone material; a specially developed mineral-loaded homopolymer cone conceived to optimise such conflicting requirements as transient response, sensitivity, damping and transparency.
The oil-cooled tweeter used is another Mission innovation - the new double-chamber impedance transformed super elliptical high-frequency driver. It exhibits a remarkably smooth response both on and off axis eliminating the hot-seat effect.
The 764i can be bi-wired for even greater performance and enhanced listening enjoyment.

The original 764 is capable of a room filling sound, but isn't the last word in dynamics and has a leaden bass if placed too close to the rear wall

Fairly detailed sound reproduction, great stereo separation, can be bi-amped or bi-wired.
Lacking in bass.
These speakers handle jazz/folk/blues like a pro - but I would definitely recommend using them in conjunction with a sub of some sort. If you really drive the bass on them, they will distort (where many others do not) but these are meant for more refined listening, not a house party.
One of the clearest speakers I have used as far as high end articulation goes, probably in part due to the small driver sizes. I have not yet played with the bi-wire feature yet on them, which will supposedly reduce noise/distortion and provide a more dynamic sound.
