    Default Fs: Mission 752 freedom floorstanders - excellent !!!

    Thought I'd never ever move these on, such has been my love for them, However I've had to spend a bucket load more to find a worthy replacement.

    They are the speaker that introduced me to the world of genuine hi fidelity, it was love at first sound.

    Coming from the mid 90's, They are regarded as a classic and one of Missions best efforts,

    They have brought me untold musical pleasure over the years and when you think they cant possibly give anymore they shine the more with every single upgrade I've put down.

    As I say, It will be with heavy heart and a bag load of fond memories that I finally let these go.

    Presentation is detailed, organic / natural, non fatiguing with fabulous imaging courtesy of it's excellent Aerogel mid- bass driver.

    Mids are beautiful where the 'music' is, vocals, horns and all those little nuances come through naturally.

    The silk dome tweeter was / is a nice step up from the slightly zingy, very warm / bright, waspish metal dome of its original (non Freedom) incarnation and was one of the things Mission rightly addressed with the revised Freedom (I've had both)

    My newly acquired Spendor D7's just shade them in terms of a being more extended in all areas and to be expected at a cost of thousands more !

    Honestly never thought I would Grant, had to spend a shed load of dough on the Spendors that replaced them and we are not talking big or miles better considering they cost thousands more.

    Any how I could have two systems they'd never leave the house. 140 just doesnt give any idea

    End of an era this is.

    Good speakers these and at a bargain price. Worth a few quid in petrol to go and collect them.
