MISSION REENGINEERS THE MISSION 770 LOUDSPEAKER
44 years on from its debut, the British HiFi brand is bringing back the Mission 770 Loudspeaker.
British brand Mission is bringing back the Mission 770 Loudspeaker, re-engineered to reap the benefits of modern techniques and technologies whilst invoking the spirit of the original in terms of technical ethos, look and sound.
The new speaker is faithful to the original blueprint whilst making full use of modern techniques and technologies to elevate its performance.
The project’s design and engineering team was led by Peter Comeau, Mission’s current Director of Acoustic Design. Peter was a young reviewer for Hi-Fi Answers when the original 770 launched and well remembers its impact (he subsequently co-founded loudspeaker maker Heybrook in 1979).
For Peter, the new Mission 770 is a labour of love; just as it was for Farad Azima all those years ago.
MADE IN THE UK
The new Mission 770 loudspeaker is designed, engineered and made in the UK.
Mission’s parent company, IAG, has expanded its facilities in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire to incorporate key manufacturing, assembly and finishing processes for specially selected products, in addition to the R&D function already located there.
A 9,000ft2 production facility has been added to the existing building in Huntingdon, including a new anechoic chamber, making a total of 25,000ft2 of office, lab and manufacturing space.
