Bottom Line:   
I think this is a very good product. The sound is amacing for almost any type of music and it plays well in all levels. Unfortunately I have got a damage to one of the bass elements, near the centre of the bass element. I have problems finding shops on the net who have these elements in stock, so I would really appriciate if anyone have an idea to were I can buy a new or used element.

Bottom Line:   
Just bought a set of these second hand for £112. I`m adding to the wealth of good reviews already given to help any potential second hand buyers. Picked them up this morning, got home and decided to play some house music and see what they can do. I have an 85 watt/ch rotel amp, very heavy duty cable and a laptop. Once the music was playing I turned my amp up a third, bass is warm and engaging, mids are good but not amazing, treble is very sharp (I had to wind the treble down a bit). At two thirds of the way round the dial they really started to lay down some serious sound, and my little girl began to cry that her ears were hurting. All of my music is digital format these days, the 704s sounded amazing, far better than the kef Q90 floorstanders they are replacing (also very good speakers). If you can find a pair buy them, these are extremely good speakers. My amp isnt big enough to really push these missions, However, I will be upgrading soon. Love em.

Bottom Line:   
I recently acquired a pair of 704's for the paltry sum of $80. I buy and then re-sell previously owned audio equipment for a living. Within my personal collection are a set of 761i's and a pair of Model 70 MKII's. I found both of these for ridiculously low prices, gave them an audition and opted to keep them. Well, they must br pretty good, huh? That they are. So when I happened upon the 704's I had pretty high expectations. They did not disappoint. Despite their years, they still sound fantastic. They don't go quite as low as I would like, but isn't that what powered subs are for anyway? What they do produce, about 40HZ and up is most delightful. Great presence, a very broad sound stage, and extraordinary imaging are among their strengths. The only true drawbacks are their sheer mass (pretty large, especially when they on par in terms of performance with my Paradigm Monitor 7 v.3's - but about 20% percent larger), they are placement critical. One jsimply cannot set these just anywhere and get the best they are capable of delivering. The really need to be out in the open. Don't even think about stuffing them in a corner - this really limits what the listener will hear. Bite the bullet and walk around them if you have to, but get them away from walls and corners. I love pairing these up with the other Mission, the BA's, Paradigms, and RBH's I keep in my personal stash of goodies. Nothing I presently own put them to shame in anyway. Extremely versatile, too. I tend to throw everything I like at them. Hardcore rock n' roll? No problem. Jazz? Not bad at all. Full orchestration works? They love it. Don't know how they would handle hip-hop or rap. They'll never go there as long as I own them, so who cares? Neither are music anyway, are they? Yep, so very pleased I found these. Don't know I would have wanted to get them if I had to pay the cost of new, though. Oh, I'm sure they were worth it. I'm just not willing to pay that much (nor can I actually afford to). $80 I can afford, and boy did I get my money's worth.

Köpte dessa högtalare begagnade för en spottstyver. innan hade jag sonab b50, stora högtalare med dubbla 10" mellanregister på 4" samt en dome 1". kan bara säga att dessa mission 704 utan effektförstärkare spelar skjortan av mina gammla sonab, från bas till top, ljudet är rappt och klart, samtidigt mjukt. påminner om när man spelade lp- skivor men utan sprak o knaster.väldigt bra högtalare, vore kul att prova mot dyra så kallade hi end burkar.

I spent a lot of money going throught more than 20 pairs of floor speakers and finally I found this pair. It is the best speakers I have ever heard so far. No noe can beat 704.

B&W 704 speakers

I have used the B&W 201s and 602s2 before and have listened to the Matrix 804s before. So these are my benchmarks. The 602s I used on a Luxman LV 103 integrated and found the sound quite open and smooth. The Matrix 804s I've heard on YBA equipment back in the 90s and found them very enjoyable. T ... Read More »
