gies to create some of the most exciting and rewarding loudspeaker
systems in every sector of the market.
In 1978, Mission Electronics launched the 770 loudspeaker. This
revolutionary product featured the world’s first commercially
realistic polypropylene drive unit. After this swiftly followed the
‘Engineered without
compromise’
Mission 700 in 1979 – the first
loudspeaker to use the now
famous ‘inverted driver array’.
Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, development continued
with an emphasis on materials technology. As polymer chemistry advanced, more advanced materials and composites became
available. Experiments on these materials yielded significant
advances in acoustic engineering; the lighter, stronger materials
more able to track small signal changes.
Into the 1990s, Mission became a force to be reckoned with. The
name spread internationally, and became synonymous with high

Pilastro was the culmination of all those years’ knowledge.
Engineered without compromise, it represents an ideal in
loudspeaker development – a statement product that is, without
doubt, one of the finest loudspeakers in audio history.
Many of the acoustic advances achieved
through the Pilastro project have since been
implemented in our newer loudspeaker
“one of the finest

audio history”
ranges. The new E-series loudspeakers all share the secrets of drive
unit technology and cabinet construction from their illustrious
predecessor and likewise, the M-series loudspeakers and even
the new 790 series all owe a great deal to the research that was
undertaken for that project.
Through an engineering-led approach to product development,
Mission remains today a standard by which other loudspeaker
companies are measured. With huge investment and with group
resources that include the ability to manufacture every single
component of every product, you can be sure that Mission will
continue to define loudspeaker reproduction standards.

PILASTRO
A
combination of advanced technological innova-
tion in acoustic design and fine craftsmanship
has won the plaudits of many critics and consum-
ers alike. Mission’s flagship loudspeaker Pilastro exemplifies this
commitment to sonic perfection. Over two years of research,
design and development has resulted in an outstanding
»>
loudspeaker that effortlessly fills any room with supreme sound
quality. The Pilastro is a true work of art and a statement of all
that is best in British design.

ilastro is one of an elite group of loudspeakers
in the world, which can truly be referred to as
‘superspeakers’. Their breathtaking looks and
superlative build, barely do justice to their high sensitivity,
huge bandwidth and explosive dynamic range.
Features include a unique ‘ring-dome’
tweeter unit, natural hemp mid-range
driver and ‘balanced force equilibrium’
bass drivers, all optimised to create
a frequency bandwidth from 20Hz
to 56kHz, all within 3dB of mean.
Dispersion is optimised through a

perfectly time and phase aligned.
Cabinet construction is equally impressive. A new material, ’Granitech’, has been employed for the first time in a
loudspeaker structure - virtually eliminating resonance and
producing sensational transient attack and rhythm.
The crossover uses silver wiring, hardwired between the
very finest audiophile components available, all built into a
separate enclosure in the plinth.

ission’s E-series consists of three unique
loudspeaker systems, carefully sculptured and
acoustically engineered by Mission’s highly
acclaimed R&D team. Featuring striking good looks and a performance
to match, each system has been designed to perform as well in
multi-channel as it does in two-channel stereo. Mission’s constant
pursuit of excellence has resulted in close attention being made not only
to the acoustic performance, but also to the styling of the product. The
cabinet design is directly derived
from the research into Mission’s
flagship model, Pilastro. A curved
profile to each of the cabinets
optimises dispersion and greatly
reduces resonance, with each range
using a multi-layer laminate for an

ission’s new E5 series is a superlative stereo
and home cinema loudspeaker system for
the discerning listener. The E5 is designed
along the E-series aesthetic and uses a complement of high quality
drive units and crossover components, finished in a choice of real
wood veneers, with a high quality satin lacquer finish.
The genetic lineage is self-evident, with our E5 range sharing many
design features with the flagship Pilastro and Elegante series
loudspeakers. Under the lustrous surface, audiophile tweaks such
as an alloy drive unit chassis and high power magnet system work
to great effect.
The reproduction of music from the E5 is remarkable. The perfectly
integrated mid-range is fluid and lucid, with pin-sharp detail, and a
bass dynamic that belies its slender profile.

more output per Watt of input power, ideally
suited to the demands of modern music and home cinema.
An innovative new cabinet construction is used (TFCT) to
construct a 38mm thick front baffle, coupled to a curved
cabinet construction. This creates an inert structure with
excellent acoustic properties – lowering cabinet response and
reducing resonance.
The ‘Paramid’ bass driver has a 32mm voice coil mounted on
a high temperature former suspended in a massive, shielded,
magnet system. It has a fast, dynamic response – damped to
produce a smooth and natural mid-range performance – yet
capable of explosive bass delivery.

M-CUBE
U
nderstated and tiny in proportion, the new
M-Cube is a revolutionary 5.1 home theatre
system for the discerning listener who desires
sound quality and discreet style in equal combination.
Just 9cm in size, the satellites can be wall or stand mounted,
and due to their use of radical new NXT technology, they
can be placed at different distances and angles from the
listener – wherever is convenient – without disrupting their
spectacular performance.
“no lightweight
when it comes
to delivering
power”
The rich and spacious sound belies the
size of the satellites and makes watching movies and listening to music an
irresistible pleasure. A powerful 250 Watt
amplified subwoofer is included in the
package – no lightweight when it comes
to delivering power, but as precise and
articulate as any, with quality stereo music.
M-cube is simple to set-up and install Five fully adjustable
wall brackets with cables are supplied, plus a selection of
Alternative ‘Skins’ to customise your taste.
