MORRISTOWN, New Jersey, January 8, 2004–Mission, the British loudspeaker manufacturer renowned worldwide for its leading edge design and craftsmanship of quality audio products, is offering consumers a breakthrough in audio performance and value with its stylish new Mission m3 Series entry-level loudspeakers, on display at the Hilton (Suite HC1310). The m3 loudspeaker series uses advanced sonic technologies to transmit all the power and excitement of music, providing audio excellence at an affordable price.
Featuring ten speaker models, including a miniature bookshelf, two stylish stand-mount and three elegant floor-standing units, plus a line of home theater speakers, the Mission m3 Series has been carefully engineered for maximum flexibility in custom installations. To match the aesthetics of any living environment, m3 loudspeakers are available in a choice of three finishes–Graphite Black, Beech or Cherry.
The m3 series features a brand new driver system, incorporating the new high-performance Mission DiaDrive bass unit for deep, rich low-frequency response. Traditionally lightweight cones have previously been used in speaker designs for enhanced midrange performance, but lack the necessary rigidity for accurate, pistonic bass. Mission’s DiaDrive uses a seamless, curvi-linear soft fiber outer cone that offers lightweight and optimum internal damping for realistic, low coloration midrange performance. This is coupled to a stiff, conical inner cone, transmitting voice coil energy at high efficiency for energetic, powerful bass performance.
DiaDrive units combine the best attributes of both soft fiber and high-rigidity cones in one multi-layer diaphragm, so that DiaDrive offers remarkable bass coupled with harmonious, natural midrange performance.
To match the remarkable attributes of the DiaDrive bass driver, an ultra-light, Viotex fabric dome treble unit reproduces high frequencies with exceptionally wide, dynamic range and finesse. An extended response to beyond 30kHz is just one indication of the speed of response from this unit. All speakers in the m3 Series are magnetically shielded, which makes them suitable for enthusiasts who enjoy movies as much as music.
Replacing the critically acclaimed m7 series, the Mission m3 Series are currently available at suggested retail prices ranging from $199 to $899. The line includes:
· m30 2-way bookshelf, SRP: $199
