Recently Arrived. Mission 770 mkIIs in mahogany.

Three years ago, I called it 'tiger ebony'. I never thought I'd find another pair like this, but here they are, sounding fantastic. When the Altecs arrived in the winter, I listened to nothing else for months. When The Energy Reference Connoissseurs showed up, the Altecs moved out, and I've enjoyed a number of smaller speakers. I hadn't heard 770s in over a year, and am reminded of all that I love about them.

Just Arrived.

  I hope your Labour Day weekend is great so far. This weekend a stunningly good Marantz 1120 arrived, a pair of Celestion SL6s, a pair of SL6is, and a pair of Mission 737R cabinets with crossovers that I'm going to fill with some very special (and appropriate) Mission drivers that I've been saving (for years :) for just such an occasion.
