2 pairs available. Both fully working and both sound fab. Please see pictures for condition (both great).

780. Boxed in all packaging with manual. Rear ported. Pack a nice punch.
780SE. The most free from the box speakers I've heard. Front ported so can sit hard against a wall. Minor crack on grille (super glued now).

Both prices collected (from Bromsgrove) or arrange your own courier as I can box up.

780 £100
780SE £90

There was two versions of the 780SE, I think. The ones you have here and then another version that look very much the 780's you have for sale, later versions are rear ported.

They're great speakers.

Mission's model numbers were very confusing. I thought the older ones were the 760 and then they brought out an upgraded version with real wood veneer branded (Mission) Cyrus 780. Maybe this was changed back to just Mission when they seperated the brands.

Anyway very good speakers, Gramophone review here:

Thanks Lawrence. Never seen that review.

To quote "remarkably transparent and lively performer, whose outstanding features are tremendous detail and sharp imaging".

These, without doubt, are the most detailed, revealing speakers I have ever owned. Staggering transparency when paired with a decent amp (used Cyrus1 and 3, Pioneer Precision and 400X and Roksan).

Agree with the review that solid stands are mandatory. Mine are sand filled and make a huge difference to the sound.
