Bottom Line:   
After a long search i found a pair of Mission 705, massive speakers which are build to last.
Of all the Mission speakers i owned so far, this one seems to be most balanced and full of power.
Sound is full of bass, good mid and a high that backgrounds in a very nice way.
Note that these speakers need power (and space), played them on a 105 w channel amp which was good but they really need at least double to show their class in my opinion.
Goes along with all kinds of music, would recommend them if you listen live recordings a lot.
Thanks for reading

bought from UBID. It sounded great. much better than anything I listened to before.

Went to www.bbb.com, the Better Business Bureau to complaint about ubid on their shipment.

Bottom Line:   
I recently purchased these speakers from a private dealer, and boy was I shocked when they arrived...the size od these things are immense (1400mm)

They are very good indeed for Home Cinema, With terminator 2 and Aliens pumping out suspence and action the missions are happy to oblidge with an encompassing sound.

Its a shame these things are soo big, and yes, they do need a large room to operate, but I dont regret buying them. I hate having to shove them into my small room, crushing the sound a bit, but its not such a problem with Home Cinema sound, its more the music that needs the big room.

I know that with a powerful 2channel amp these are very good indeed...

Bottom Line:   
You can't get anything similar for this price. Their sound is crystal clear and powerful, but you need a real amp to drive the 705. They draw tremendous amounts of current at high bass levels.
The bass response is very good, lots of tight, deep bass. Don't even think of a subwoofer! Midrange response is also outstanding, it works in its own vented enclosure. Treble: perfect, not too bright.

They perform superb with modern music (rock, dance,..) The ideal speakers for DJs at home, they reveal the slightest mismatch im mixing. I can't rate them for classic and jazz.

Unfortunately they're discontinued now (i think they are too big, 140 cm height but same power handling as the 704). Go and get a pair as long as they remain available.

Bottom Line:   
I have this speakers for almost a year now and still amazed!
The huge bass response makes me shiver every time when i watch the good old Terminator 2! :) Also when playing music they are great. good detail altough the treble is somewhat "soft" but the midrange is very good. Overal these "babies" :) are great performers. I love them!!
