    Note bottom page that both Rosewood and the Primavera (light oak) finishes were the equally priced, higher cost option over the black ash finish. (All were / are real wood veneer)

    Loved the pictures. I have a pair of 753's from new, bought mid 1990's. Had the speaker units changed by Wilmslow using Monacor, DT100 for the tweeters and SPH135C for the mids, about 5 years ago. They always sounded great and still do. I would have to spend a lot of cash to better what I have. If anyone is interested in pictures, I will post some. Love the Mission design, clean and simple. They are driven by Temple audio Monoblocks with Caiman SEGs as pre's.
