Mission 705 speakers

Recommended Posts

Item: Mission 705 Floorstanding Speakers
Location:Mount Martha 3934
Price: $600.00
Item Condition:Very Good
Reason for selling:We have downsized and these are too large
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
Extra Info:

For Sale - Pair of Mission 705 speakers in Excellent condition both cosmetically and acoustically.
 
These have been used (gently) as front stereo speakers in a 5.1 home theater room for the last  eight years.
 
The sub was pretty much superfluous as these put out enormous amounts of bass.
 
Reviews can be found here  -
 
 
I would suggest these speakers would be more suited to modern, jazz or rock rather than classical music.
 
Pretty much right in your face and definitely not subtle.
 
We have downsized and no longer have the room for these large speaker.
 
Designed in the UK and manufactured in the EU.
 
I don't believe these ever retailed in Australia. They were marketed in the US and Europe however given their size I would guess the US was the primary market.
 
These were imported from the US by the previous owner 
 
RRP in the US was US$1250. 00.
 
Previously powered by a Denon home theater amp. Currently hooked up to an ME750/ME24 pre/power amp combination for audition.
 
These can be auditioned in Mt Martha 3934 and these speakers are pick up only from Mt Martha as we do not have the original boxes and they are far to large to post,

      Item: Avantgarde Zero 1 XD Active Speakers DSP

      Reason for selling: Time for a change
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only

      These are the top of the line model, above the pro model and come with DSP, digital and an analogue (A/D card) for turntables etc.
       
      They are incredibly dynamic! They sound just as good when theyre shaking the house or playing whisper quiet. 
       
      I have all original packing so transport is not an issue
       
      As im going to need a complete new system Im happy to look at trades

      Item: ELAC BS 243.3 Bookshelf Speakers - black
      Location: Collingwood, Melbourne
      Price: 1,200, negotiable
      Item Condition: 10/10
      Reason for selling: Raising funds
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash
      Extra Info:
       
      Picked up from Vinyl Revival in Fitzroy late last year (Nov), selling to raise some funds.
       
      I auditioned a few bookshelf speakers and found these to be the best sounding and looking of the ones I tried in the two weeks I spent in there auditioning! I've had these in my apartment and they fill the space beautifully, lovely to listen to in the background but can definitely deliver if asked to. I have had them hooked up to a Sonos AMP. The jet tweeter delivers a lot of detail in the highs and they sound like much larger speakers for the size.
       
      The build and finish are beautiful. Glossy black, and really cool looking under the grille. 
       
      Bought for 1,995, selling for 30% off: https://web.archive.org/web/20190407073809/https://www.vinylrevival.com.au/collections/elac/products/elac-bs-243-2-bookshelf-pair
       
      Comes with original box and packaging. Pick up Collingwood.
