Following the launch of the all-new LX-2 and LX-3 loudspeakers, the British manufacturer shows its full LX entry-level series at Bristol Sound & Vision
Showcasing its six-strong LX lineup at the Bristol Sound & Vision show held in February, visitors to the fourth floor of the Marriott Hotel City Centre got the chance to experience Mission's complete entry-level range of loudspeakers for the first time. Touted as offering exceptional performance and value, the £160 LX-2 standmount and £400 LX-3 floorstanding speakers were launched almost a year ago. They are joined by four new models that augment the range with a further standmount speaker, two additional floorstanders as well as a centre channel model if your audio aspirations extend to multi-channel loudspeaker installations.
As with the first models unveiled, Mission tells us that its LX series has been designed to deliver compelling musicality. Cabinets are braced at key points to control unwanted resonances and vibrations. For the LX series, the Huntingdon-based company has produced a tweeter with a neodymium magnet (selected for maximum magnetic force in
such a small space) and a 25mm microfibre dome. It's positioned in an inverted arrangement and is partnered with a self-damping advanced fibre formulation mid/bass driver cone that measures 100mm in the £110 LX-1, 130mm in the £160 LX-2 standmount models, with two 130mm drivers in the £400 LX-3 floorstander, while the LX-4 has twin 165mm drivers. All designs are two-way configurations except for the £750 LX-5, which is a three-way floorstander that uses
a dedicated midrange and two 165mm bass drivers.
The complete Mission LX series is on sale now from your local distributor and available in a choice of white, black and walnut finishes. Click here to find out more.
