In designing hi-fi loudspeakers, the best aesthetics are those that appeal visually and enhance product function. Mission’s 76 Series has been conceived, developed and engineered according to these principles. The Series is constructed using a high quality cuboid enclosure with a lateral wrap and an advanced composite MDF cabinet for a flawless balance in frequency response. Each model in the 76 Series is capable of delivering audiophile standards of accuracy, imaging, grip and dynamism. And because Mission designs and manufactures every single component of the loudspeaker, each driver is tuned precisely to its enclosure, avoiding resonance, vibration, or standing waves which might otherwise color the linear nature of the acoustic.

Parawave Driver
Mission’s latest cone material, ‘Parawave’, is the result of years of research into the properties of aramid fiber and how they can best be used in loudspeaker cones. Aramids are man-made polymers with exceptional tensile strength that is five times stronger than the equivalent weight of steel. They formed into a three dimensional matrix, bonded with a compatible resin and cured extensively in order to be effective in a loudspeaker cone. This new cone exhibits near-perfect linear pistonic motion over its entire frequency range, retaining the speed and accuracy inherent in the material.

IDG (Inverted Driver Geometry)
Mission has pioneered the use of inverted-driver geometry. By placing the treble unit below the bass or mid-range driver, the length of path is equalized so the waves coincide at the listener’s head height. This principle is known as ‘time alignment.’

Side facing driver
On large floor-standing loudspeakers, it is often desirable to use a sideways-facing driver. In small rooms, these should be positioned facing inwards to create a taut, controlled bass, free of room gain and boom. In larger rooms they can be switched to face outwards, improving presence and extending the lower frequency response.

D2IS (Damped driver isolation system)
The unique D2IS system is designed to reduce the effect of front baffle vibrations on the hi-fi unit’s output. A low profile neodymium magnet enables the treble unit housing to be fully contained within the front baffle, mounted in a resiliently-damped, compliant cradle. This increases the decoupling of the treble and bass units, and eliminates virtually all unwanted mechanical and definition, particularly through the vital crossover region.
