KyraMonaghan131's review of Mission Model 70 MkII

“Brilliant little speakers”

★★★★☆

written by KyraMonaghan131 on 15/12/2022

First heard these in 83 and liked them for their forward lively sound. I have had a number of other speakers but never really been happy with any of them. They normally sound closed in and congested. Anyhow saw these on ebay and got them almost 40 years later. One driver have the foam coming away, so I reglued it. Cleaned the cloth and restained the black ash veneer.
They work well at low volumes as they project the sound really well. In my small study they sounded a bit thin and not great though.
Anyhow as a test moved them into my main room, firing across the width of the room which is 10 x 25ft either side of the fireplace. Driven by a quad 405, could not believe how goood they sounded, tight bass, really crisp vocals and cymbals, and good imaging. They really are amazing speakers considering the price and age, just really liking them. Listening to ACDC Hard as a rock, they sound very good, this is very well produced album, give it a try.
They take a lot of power as they are not that sensitive, so can really drive them. Even loud there is not much bass driver movement, probably because of the the closed box design. I also have some mission 753, that have a lot more bass, but the vocals seem dulled and hidden, I prefer the little mission 70s.
