Mission 770


At the top of the range comes Mission's legendary 770, which is largely responsible for the company's formidable reputation now synonymous with state-of-the-art, and became the design reference in the laboratories of many of our competitors.

The original design was in the tradition of BBC two-way reflex monitors and over the years many unique improvements have been incorporated to ensure that the 770 remains the most sophisticated product of its kind.

The Mission drive unit's powerful motor system utilizes electrical dynamic damping - resulting in extended low frequency response, exceptional linearity, enhanced power handling and minimal Doppler distortion.

The dome high frequency unit is oil-cooled and damped for smooth response and increased saturation threshold. The crossover incorporates unusual and advanced components and the enclosure is visco elastically damped. The 770 also utilizes our unique frequency selective dispersive membrane.

In brief, the 770 is designed to reproduce the depth, feeling, emotions, drama and intelligence of music. This you must experience and may then share the view of many who consider the 770 as the best available, regardless of size or cost.

I've own my 770's for over 30 years. They've been re-foam a couple of times. I have never heard a better loudspeaker. If I did, I'd own it! These are about as perfect as you can get. Besides, its fun to see the faces on the 20 or 30 some-thing's when I crank them and blow the dust off the woofers. They hear them, then can't believe how well they respond and reproduce. I do cheat a bit. For the demo, I use a vinyl LP of the Beatles. Sometimes, new isn't always better.
