marty1787's review of Mission M73 speakers

“Bought these speakers on what hi-fi recommendation as...”

★★★★☆

written by marty1787 on 20/09/2007

Good Points
Nice detail, prominent vocals and midrange. Nicely balanced sound, easy on the ears.

Bad Points
Bass can be just horrid out of the box. Loose, boomy and uncontrolled.

General Comments
Bought these speakers on what hi-fi recommendation as they were a 5 star award winner. These are certainly not 5 star speakers. Out of the box the bass is just nasty. It's boomy and uncontrolled.



However, if you load these speakers with sand the bass improves considerably but I've still heard much better bass from speakers in the same price range. If you put these against the wall, Mission recommend using the foam bungs provided to block the bass port. Use these foam bungs regardless how far these speakers are from the wall for a better sound. The bass is significantly cut down so won't please bass heads but makes the bottom end much more in tune with the music and acceptable.

Quality speakers take time to break in, a week or two in some cases. Educated music lovers and audiophile know this...

Dissing the 'out of the box' sound is a classic amateur mistake, and I'm not being nasty, it's actually quite common- I made the same mis-judgements before I knew better. Live and learn right?
