Dilema. So I have mission m72 in black as L&R. I also have a pair of recently acquired B&W Dm100i. Bit of a decor fan and the B&W look far better than the Mission. However one of the B&W has a duff driver and needs replacing so cant really demo them properly at the minute. Specs seem similar @89db, power handling = b&w up to 75w and missions up to 125w. 1. Will the B&W sound better than the missions? These B&w are circa 1984 but seem more open sound even though sensitiviy is the same as the missions @ 89db. 2. I have 5.1 with a large mission centre speaker. (m7c2) Will there be a marked tonality difference across the front soundstage? My receiver has auto eq filtering, standing wave, etc etc. Obviously i have to pay for a new driver so need some opinions before paying out. Thankyou.
