You probably compared to old prices before going discontinued. When it was released LX2 cost 200£, new mk2 now 229£ so quite modest bump.One slight problem. The lx1 mark 2 is about double the price of the mark 1's!!!
It's been a relatively long wait for new Mission speakers compared to 'old' Mission speakers.
I look forward to some reviews and comparisons with the mark 1 lx range and bronze 5g and/or 6g ranges.
