    The Missions are quite revealing of cartridge character and show up inadequacies rather well. The Bloom should sound pretty nice with them.

    Merry Christmas!
    I am Geoff. Been looking at mission 773 freedoms because I'm so impressed with the 780se. Outstanding little speaker. Managed to make room for floorstanders so that's my next purchase in the new year.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours.

    I'm not a fan of the 773 model. Did you mean the 770 Freedom? The Freedoms are OK, but would not be on my shopping list.

    The super little 780SE's are one of those rare things that are just greater than the sum of their parts.

    My tip is to find a way of getting Bev's System 800's. 94db sensitivity and they kick ass without any nasties, smooth and very detailed. Amazing imaging. You'd be knocked out by how good they are. But that's just my view of course, others may differ. (I have owned a few pairs though)

    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!

    Nope, not a typo but am also liking the look of the 752. What's your opinion on them

    They're OK. One of Mission's better efforts. I didn't think they were desperately dynamic, but pleasant enough.

    Ask Shane if you want another opinion. He's had them and the System 800's.

    I have to admit. I'm not really that keen on most Missions, the 780SE is an exception.

    Hhmm. Maybe he'll chime in.

    Naturally dynamic I would say, definitely not 'desperately' dynamic, they are not in your face and do not impose themselves on you,
    they just let the music flow in that natural organic way.
    I can listen to them endlessly without fatigue which makes each session a pleasure.
    Musical, detailed and lovely in the mids, vocals and instruments sound right, include great imaging too.
    Bass is tight and punchy rather than lowest frequency, earthshakingly deep the 6.5 inch mid bass driver does a great job all things considered.
    With every upgrade they just communicate back to you, revealing more. I find these humble speakers to be totally unfazed by big company in the chain.
    In my view they are a true hi fidelity speaker and an absolute audiophile bargain.
    I play soul, reggae, jazz, Steely Dan etc and they never cease to do the bizz for me everytime.
    This is in the context of small - medium sized room.

    I do like the look of them and it's nice to see them highly thought of. I'll be keeping my eyes open for some
