Does Mission lx2 mk2 is a better speaker than Qaccoustic M20, though its a active speaker, and Wharfdale Diamond 12.1. Just to know for comparison and idea.

To my ears, it isn't. The Q Acoustics sounds much better, no matter what Amp/DAC i used with the Mission.

Amongst amps, I've tried out the mission with a Marantz PM6006, Cambridge Audio CXA81, SMSL DA9 and FX Audio D502.

The DACs connected were either the Chord Mojo, the RME ADI-2 DAC FS or the inbuilt DAC of the SMSL DA9 (over Bluetooth)

I am also looking for a pair of stereo speakers to set up either side of my 48inch Panasonic Plasma TV. These days of compressed music, my emphasis is for good live vocals if at all possible. I have listened to Q Acoustic M20. This is on my short list. Another speaker that impressed me was a Yamaha. I have forgotten the model number. However, I am leaning towards the M20.

Purchased M20 few days back, how good it would be with Boss 2 and how should it be connected with M20 and what OS would you recommend. Using it through Optical with my LG G1 .can it be improved in any manner. Which PSU would you recommend.

Haven't heard the Boss 2 but if i remember correctly, the improvements when connected to the Allo Digione Signature was very incremental and not as drastic as more accomplished passive speakers connected to a good DAC.

On the other hand, if you already have the Boss 2 on tap, it's always worth a try. However, i believe it's not required.
