Mission: New Versions of Speakers 700 and Integrated Amp 778X

After launching the new version of the "770" speakers, Mission now also brings reincarnations of the two-way "700" speakers and the "778X" integrated amp. At the same time, they also present the new, modern LX Connect DAC.

Shelf Speakers Mission 700

The newly presented two-way speakers "Mission 700" are the reincarnation of the model from the 1980s carrying the same name. At the same time, the 700 is presented as a sibling to the Mission 770 presented earlier this year. Here, too, Mission relies on a newly developed polypropylene woofer and a model-specific drive system. With the help of software-based crossover mapping and simulation, a crossover was created that said to be an improvement compared to that of the original model.

The unconventional driver arrangement, known as "Inverted Driver Geometry", has been adopted from the original. By positioning the tweeter below the woofer / midrange driver, the length of the audio path is supposed to be balanced and thus timing improved. For the cabinet, Mission also stays true to the original as much as possible, including hand-applied rosé walnut or black real wood veneers and a laminated white baffle.

Integrated Amplifier Mission 778X

With the also new integrated amp "778X", Mission introduces a suitable playing partner. Although it is a new edition of the 778, the 778X is nevertheless equipped in such a way that it can also convince modern music lovers, according to Mission. Thus, in addition to analog RCA inputs and an integrated phono preamp, the 77X also offers digital connection options with up to 384kHz (PCM) and DSD256, as well as a Bluetooth receiver with aptX and AAC codec. In terms of power, about 65 watts into 4 ohms are stated to be available.

Mission LX Connect DAC

In addition to the reissued classics, Mission also presents the LX Connect DAC, a completely independent new product developed in cooperation with sister company Audiolab. In addition to analog, optical and coaxial digital inputs, this digital-to-analog converter, preamplifier and headphone amplifier also features an HDMI ARC connection. The ES9018K2M DAC chip used supports high-resolution PCM playback up to 32-bit/384 kHz via USB and 24-bit/192 kHz via the coaxial and optical inputs, as well as up to DSD256 via USB. A headphone amplifier and 'Roon Tested' certification are also part of the package.
