    Hi all,

    I'm currently running KEF Eggs and I am now ready to upgrade. I've just had a demo of the new Mission Elegante's and thought they sounded great. Before I take the plunge just thought I'd ask what everyone else thinks?

    Thanks

    Andy

    Hi all,

    Has any one got any thoughts on these speakers?

    How do they compare to Kef 5005s/9000s?

    I ask because a retailer was telling me that, in his opinion,
    for home cinema use the Missions were superior to the
    Kefs. I haven't had a chance to demo the Missions yet, but wondered what others thought?

    AndyCS, sorry to butt in on your thread, have a free bump from me :)

    Hi

    Yeah i spent half an hour listening to the missions. I thought they were good....but not outstanding. I the had a 3 hour session with some artcoustic speakers...again very very good...but for the price they should have been!!

    I eventually went for the kef 9000 ace....sounded great. i had a demo with my amp and dvd player...and have to admit i had never heard the amp sound soooo sweet.

    I am just waiting for them to arrive...

    Chris

    PS:- I thought the missions looked the business :D

    I currently have a M&K 750 setup with a M&K V1250 Sub,the problem is they are the best for Cinema but I need better on Two Channel Music.
    I have looked at the Elegante's (E82's) in a 5.1 setup and have a Demo booked next weekend.
    Whilst they look superb I am now wondering are they good enough to improve on the M&K 750's?
    Should I look at something else or stick with the 750's.
    Whilst on this forum the Elegante gets full marks for looks I have not yet read a Jaw Dropping review of the sound.
    I have upgraded my Reciever to the new Aracm Avr300 as it is rated for its Musicality along with the Arcam Dv89 Dvd Player but I don't think I will benefit from this setup until I change the speakers. :confused:
