    Back in the 90's I fell in love with some mission speakers, sadly at the time I could never afford them as they always hovered around the £1000 mark.

    The speakers were rosewood, had four woofers and a tweeter, they also could be bi wired. Sadly I can not remember the model of them (but some reason was sure they were called 7.1 for whatever reason) if you can help me identify this from my vague description I would be most most grateful. :lease:

    Many thanks (in advance)

    Based on your description it sounds like they were the Mission 753 which retailed for about £700 to £800.

    You should find a few on eBay around the £200 mark second hand.

    I still own a pair of these speakers, which i bought back in the early nineties, they come to life when used with a powerful amp.

    IIRC the bass drivers in those were a bit cheap and nasty at only about £9 each. :rolleyes: I don't think our own Russell Williams was much of a fan either. From what I remember the 752F is a much better speaker and is a lot cheaper to boot!
