Background: In the early nineties, the original 760 instantly sold like hot cakes on a cold evening, but Mission – being the company it was – pushed hard to keep it at the top of the sales charts. A number of revisions arrived, with the 760i getting a larger magnet on the mid/bass unit and small crossover tweaks in 1991. In 1992 the 760iSE arrived with better polyester film capacitors, thicker internal wiring and a bi-wirable crossover layout. All models had a quoted frequency response of 70Hz-20kHz ±2.5dB and a nominal impedance of 6 ohms.

Personal review (by realspin April 29, 2015) The sound of the 760 was a revelation; it was the first smooth and musical sounding budget stand-mounter I had heard. It seemed to combine the benefits of the old generation of early eighties KEF Codas (warm, effortlessness) with a tighter, tauter sound that seemed incredibly modern at the time. In essence, it sounded more expensive than it actually was, and not in a boring way. Despite being really rather small, it seemed to have a very big heart and imaged way better than the eighties speakers it was beginning to usurp. This ability to give an ‘out of the box’ sound won it many friends.

Only at very high volumes did you hear it was compressing the sound, and even then it did it gracefully. In absolute terms the midband was a little opaque too, but the clever thing about the 760 was the way it covered its tracks. You always knew it wasn’t the best small speaker ever made, but it was never immediately obvious why not! The tweaks improved things, the 760i getting a slightly tauter bass and a little more clarity in the mid, and the 760iSE sounded bigger, smoother and more open – especially when bi-wired.
