Thought I would share with you my thoughts on my latest upgrade. Personally I have always been a big fan of Mission speakers, I don't really know why, the sound they produce just pleases me and makes me want to listen. On the other hand Kef's are somewhat tiring on long listening session, or at least that was my experience with a pair of Q4's. When I saw the 782 front's I almost laughed, they look a little too slim to be taken seriously. Unfortunately this diminutive nature means small bass despite a sidefiring bass unit. I'd say that these are flat to 60hz and after that your depth is compromised, more on this later. Setting the 782's up was more hands on than any other speaker I've owned in the past. At first I had them around a foot from the wall and the sound was awfully muddy. These speakers like lots of room to really create a sense of space and soundstage, infact I ended up settling on around 80cm from the rear of the cabinet to the wall! However when in this position the sound is wonderful, vocals are beatifully laid and the top end is allowed to breath without being swallowed by anyother part of the musical spectrum. Imaging is smooth and involving but isn't razor sharp however these are more laid back in nature than most speakers and hence sound smoother and are very easy to listen to for extended periods or at volume. Hang on.... its 1.10am... Jesus I'd better get to bed, I've got work tommorow. I'll finish this up then.
