Mission LX-2 Speakers incorporate a design that was stripped back to its fundamentals and uses the best of Mission's engineering to offer great enjoyment for users.
Music is Master
Sharp, traditional but contemporary in appearance, the LX 2s are affordable, smart and practical in keeping with Mission’s regular design focus. They deliver engaging energy and detail bringing life to performances with all the vivacity and delicacy you’d expect from a Mission speaker.
Mission has always focused on conveying audiophile performance at an affordable level, and the LX Series illustrates this. Aided by refined moulding tools and software, Mission has managed to exploit the performance of the series using most current technology available. Yet Mission’s original slogan, ‘Music is the Master, Technology is the Slave’, has never been more apparent.
High-frequency drive units entail particularly reliable components which combined with Mission’s extremely consistent manufacturing can deliver the performance required. Given the tiny moving masses involved, one micro-drop extra of high-tech adhesive can destroy the balance of the design, thus affecting sensitivity and frequency response.
For the LX Series, Mission has carefully designed a tweeter with a neodymium magnet for maximum force in a small space, together with a 25mm microfiber dome chosen for its repeatability and consistency in manufacture. It delivers a sweet sounding but incisive upper frequencies as required.
The midrange and mid/bass drivers use cones manufactured from an advanced fibre formulation, impregnated to reduce hygroscopy as well as being very stiff for their mass, with excellent self-damping. With the use of a powerful ferrite magnet, the magnetic field is directed precisely within the area of voice coil excursion, enabling an ultra-linear performance that minimises colouration
In traditional Mission style, the stand mount LX-2’s tweeter is positioned below the mid/bass drive unit, in order to aid time alignment. By placing the treble unit lower than ear level, the path length from the treble unit to the listener is longer than that of the mid/bass unit. As the treble unit dome is physically forward of the mid/bass unit cone, the difference in path length helps to equalise the acoustic distance.
Extensive research and development was carried out to ensure internal cabinet robustness, eliminating any unwanted resonances and vibrations. Each speaker has been braced at main points, which means the full frequency range is clear and detailed. This means the sound emanates from the drivers and not from the cabinet.
'The LX-2s are the most convincing Mission product we’ve heard in years and one of the best budget speakers around. For: A sound packed with verve and insight, Strong dynamics and fine timing, punchy, good build and finish.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine September 2016)
'Finish is neat, and well up to the standards we expect at the price. We like the understated visual design touches that make the speakers look rather classy.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine September 2016)
'Stereo imaging is good too, with a pleasing stability to the presentation. We like the even spread of sound and the fact that the presentation remains consistent from a wide range of listening positions.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine September 2016)
'These speakers time well, communicating changes in momentum convincingly. Through it all they don’t forget the subtleties... Vocals are clear, easy to follow and packed with energy. Nuances are rendered with finesse and the mass of instrumentation and voices is organised really well. At no point do these speakers sound like they’ve taken on more than they can handle.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine September 2016)
'The LX-2s were originally intended to sell at £200. For that price we would have still praised their performance and recommended them highly. At the revised price they’re an even bigger bargain and deliver a huge slice of fun that few rivals can get close to. Take just a little care in partnering and they’ll turn in a performance that’s sure to get a smile on your face. Well done, Mission! These are worth the wait.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine September 2016)
'Best standmount speaker under £200.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine 2016)
