Mission Speakers


Hi Guys

A couple of days back while strolling thru a market in mumbai I decided to have a look at Mission speakers @ vijay sales.This particular branch had only one pair of Mission M33i FS speakers.Couldn't audition properly since the floor was crowded but whatever time could listen, the sound output was good.Now am planning to carry my Onkyo 3100 AVR,as suggested by most of you in my previous thread, to the shop for an audition.
The price quoted by the delear for the pair of Mission M33i FS speakers was Rs 11,420/-.
I just want to know is the price ok or is he asking for too much?

okay i got it for 24.5k in Feb end - these days its touching 20-21k AFAIK.

And thanks - probably they had the cheaper mh3 center speaer which is only average at max. The m3C2i good and matches the timbre of the m34,35 well.

Do let me know of the price.

m33 is a single driver has its disadvantages - m34 is better with its mid range performance is 2 way and when paired with a sub is simply smashing (my vote for most people). M35 is a 3 way - overall better bass response, does not necessitate a sub with most genres of music (i have this).

BTW the bass response of m33/m34 can be improved by silver sand that can be introduced in the back cavities of the m33 and m34.

BTW the price of m33 came down to 11.5 and m34 17k in a forum. M34 for 16k is a good buy. I got my m35 for 24k but now available for 21-22k as mentioned in a forum earlier.

Re: Mission Speakers

Hi
Thanks 4 d quick reply.M 34i @ vijay sales is Rs 18K (latest) and M 35i is Rs 25,500.They say the prices have gone up since last few days.Those ppl say that M 35i is not compatible with my Onkyo 3100 AVR.Is that true? Any idea!!Pls suggest if I buy a Norge 1000 will it be a good option for music.This amp fits into my budget.
You have mentioned a way to improve the bass response by adding silver sand!!Pls can u tell me in detail abt this process.Never heard of it before.Adding sand will not harm the internal circuitry of the speaker?

bull@@@
the avr is rated at 115w/c at 6 ohm and the mission m345 is 150W at 8 ohm - the onkyo can drive the missions to respectable volumes. I have not comes across the AVR but if its ogt binding posts or similar and not proprietary connectors the m35 will play.

For music you can get the norge 1000 (will go good with m35) or wait for a few weeks or a month for me to review the MiniWatt amp. Or the Nad is a good amp 325 is good but out of your budget.

Contact you local HW guy or glass manufacturer for silver sand - actually any high quality fine sand will do. It needs to be introduced to a small packet at the back of the speaker (port present) - gives more weight and stability improving bass response.

go for m34 (save some money) - its good VFM and if you want to use with a 2.1 system. For a cheaper overall setup you can stick with 2.0 with m35 - for most genres of music m35 will do fine with a matching amp
