Description of the Mission MX-2 Bookshelf Speaker:
Every Mission MX-2 Bookshelf Speaker is designed to deliver maximum sound for minimum outlay, in a practical design that’s purpose-built for modern living.
Every model is specifically designed to work well when positioned close to a wall, making the speakers easy to position in typical rooms.
They are also engineered to deliver a balanced sound both on- and off-axis, aided by an integrated treble waveguide that optimizes dispersion, thus ensuring great sound wherever the listener is seated.
The result is a range of speakers that is smart, practical, and affordable. Most important of all, they communicate music with engaging energy and detail, bringing performances to life with all the vibrancy and finesse one expects of Mission designs.
Open and expansive:
The soundstage they present is open and expansive, with good focus and separation.
The midrange is nicely resolved, the vocal in Sufjan Stevens’ Chicago loaded with detail and character, while the top end has ample sparkle and bite.
The big gains here over the MX1s are fundamentally in terms of scale – the MX2s are simply a bigger listen.
In terms of insight and refinement, there’s been little gain. This lack of advancement is shown up by the formidable opposition at this higher price level.
Mission MX Series:
MX Series is a groundbreaking loudspeaker range from Mission.
Providing extraordinary sound with superb value for money, the range promotes the brand's classic, audiophile sound to the next level by providing a modern and engaging musical experience.
MX fuses Mission's signature strengths with leading technology to present a range of speakers that will suit the home audio needs of every listener.
In keeping with the theme of practical living, every Mission MX-2 Bookshelf Speaker model has been designed for optimum performance with the drive units’ protective grilles in place.
Traditionally, speakers sound best with their grilles removed, but this leaves the drive units vulnerable to damage.
Although the grilles may be removed if the user wishes, the Mission MX-2 Bookshelf Speakers have been deliberately tuned for grille-on use — thanks not least to the built-in waveguide — thus further enhancing both practicality and aesthetics.
The Mission MX-2 Bookshelf Speaker sports a sharp, modern look in keeping with Mission’s customary design focus, coupling keyed tonal graduations with a selection of smart wood-grain finishes, able to slot neatly into any domestic environment.
All the Mission MX-2 Bookshelf Speakers may be single- or bi-wired (bi-wiring is recommended for optimum performance) and the lower section of the floor standers may be mass loaded with dry sand to enhance stability and provide additional cabinet damping, thus further enhancing transient response.
