Recommended Posts

Item Condition: 8/10
Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.
Suburb or Town: Glen Huntly
State: Victoria
Payment Method: CASH, PAYPAL, BEER, Whiskey
Reason for selling: Too Many speakers

Further information: 

 

I purchased these used in 2017 and these have been the longest speakers I have kept. They have seen off many other speakers, floor standers may have more bass and output but these just sound right to me.

It’s a sealed box so there isn’t much bass but what it has is GREAT.

These love a bit of power to make them sing….. Lots of power.

These sounded best with Naksa 70 & B&O ICE 125ASX2  an amp with lots of bass control.

 

For a while I had these speakers at work in a large warehouse and mini Topping class D Tripath amp and it wasn’t too bad even with these tiny bass drivers.

 

 

It is the Whatmough house sound in a tiny package.  These sound good on stands over putting them on a side table or shelf.

 

2 way sealed enclosure using 140cm bass driver

25mm soft dome tweeter

Efficiency: 85dB input level 2.83v - 1watt into 8ohms

65Hz to 20kHz +/- 3dB

300H x 185W x 180D

6kg

Finish: Burnt Cherry (?)

mounting bracket on back

 

There are a few marks on the speakers nothing major.

 

 

 

60cms Stands I had made in 2018 by Anthony (Grizzly) they cost me around $330 I think (could be more)

Perfect for these speakers and LS3/5a size speakers

has spikes and floor disc. These work well on hard floors. For carpet a heavy weight on the bottom of the stands will keep it balanced. I used books or LPs.

 

 

Willing to separate. Open to reasonable offers.

Lovely looking speakers with beautiful stands. I would have snapped them if I am in Melbourne and love the Whatmough house sounds as an ex owner of 201i leadline and 502i.

      Firstly, I love these speakers. When I first heard these speakers I absolutely fell in love. They sound amazing and have a soundstage to die for. They are also very well regarded in the audiophile community. I now have the opportunity to upgrade and the upgrade bug has totally hit me hence my reason for selling.

      …The flagship model in the twenty5 series is also the most capable. The mid-range dome driver makes it the most revealing while the substantial bass driver coupled to an extended ATL produces tangible bass that brings music and movies to life…

      Hi everyone! 
       
      I've got a mate who's happy to sell me his old speakers for $500. 
       
      Just wanting to know what kind of amplifier would need to drive these well? I'm still happy with my Audioengine A2+ powered speakers but this offer seems too good to turn down! 
       
      Help me out! There's all this mixed information about Mission and whether their Made in China status has negatively influenced their products! 
       
      Thanks anyone and everyone in advanced
