    I've got a pair of Mission 773e's and want to get the matching center and rear speakers - 77c1 and 77ds

    Tracking these down is proving a problem, and although I will keep an eye on the classifieds and ebay - would I be able to use any of the newer Mission speakers (eg. m7c1) with the 773e's? Or would it not be a good idea?

    Also, for the centre back channel, should I try to get hold of a second 77c1, or use a 77ds? Or not bother?

    john_p, I might be selling my 77C1 in a few weeks as it doesn't tonally match my 775e front L/R speakers as well as I'd like. If I do decide to I'll let you have first 'dabs' so to speak :)

    I use 77Ds for my centre rear channel with no probs at all, sounds much better than the pair of M73s i was using, which were way too directional.

    The 77Ds come up quite a lot on the classifieds section, perhaps a wanted ad will bring up an unused 77C1, i'm sure i've seen a few go on here before.

    Matt - IMHO I wouldn't describe it as cherry, as to me Cherry paints a Rose-wood like picture, which is also available...

    I'd say it's closer to Beech than Cherry :D
