    I need it to go with the 773e's I bought a few years ago, but I'm having difficulty getting hold of one now. Am I likely to be able to get hold of one brand new now, if so do you have any links or phone numbers?

    Or will I have to search for a second hand one?

    Thanks,
    Sam :)

    It'll have to be second hand I'm afraid. It took me 8 months to track mine down, but they do turn up occasionally.

    Try a "wanted" in the classifieds forum.

    OK, thanks for you help.

    I'll have a go and see what turns up. Either that or I come and steal yours. ;)

    I'm surprised that you want to use a quality speaker like the 773e with a lower quality plastic 77c1, whereas a speaker of the C2 or better range would be more suitable.

    If you need a shallow speaker then you can go for the newer M3C1.

    The 77C1 is from one of the older ranges and is a full-size centre speaker (arguably better than anything similar Mission have put out since).

    I was under the impression from when I first bought the 773e's that the 77c1 was designed to complement them in an A/V setup?

    I am interested in other recommendations that will fit in both sonically and visually though...

    When you mention the C2 are you refering to this: M3C2 ?

    The 77C1 is the one you want (maybe the 77C2 but they're much more expensive, much harder to find with very little (if any) sonic improvement).

    The more recent Mission ranges have had a "cheaper" entry-level centre, and an "upgraded" version that's more expensive.

    Go here:
    http://www.superfi.co.uk/index.cfm/page/category.cfm/category/39/StartRow/1
    and look at the difference between the M3C1 and the M3C2.

    The 77 range is more akin to the M5 range which you'll see doesn't include the entry level speaker.

    The c2 had the bigger aerogel driver from the 775 and was designed to work with that. The c1 IS the correct front for the 773e. Sadly you are about 7 months too late for mine as I sold my cherry one about that long ago.

    Thanks for all the advice. I've posted a request in the trading forum and I'll see if I have any luck.

    Cheers,
    Sam

    Oh yes, I think I may have confused the older c1 range with the more recent ones.

    I think the 77c1 must have been the one with 3 tweeters aligned vertically unless that was the 77c2......- Won an award in 1999 (What Hi-Fi).

    The 77Cx and 78C are the ones with the tweeter array.

    The 77C being the first version to be released, it had a passive radiator rather than 2 drivers and was fairly average.

    This was replaced by the 77C1 which had 2 main drivers.

    The 77C2 is just a larger 77C1.

    The 78C (not mentioned but has a tweeter array) is from the next range up and has now been replaced by the 78CSE in the same way.

    Thanks again for all your help. I've managed to arrange a deal in the classified forum already. :D
