These will not be used with my main setup so I don't need to worry about matching and all of that. I would like to have them at least partially for the nostalgia factor of old hifi speakers but I want to make sure that 35 year old speakers aren't just going to be more trouble than they are worth. I own a pair of Polk RT16s that are 20ish years old and they are practically perfect in every way so I am optimistic.

This could be the first step in having a separate analog system and moving into the world of LPs...
I have a pair of those 770 "Freedoms" with stands. Great little speakers and have aged well. Not in my primary listening room -- in there I have 780 "Argonauts", same vintage. Love 'em all!

I currently have the following in my theater room:
Mission M74i Fronts
Mission M7C1i Center
Mission M30i Rears (Would have got the M7DS but they were no longer sold locally)

And I have the following in my music room:
Mission 760i Bookshelfs
Mission MS8 Sub (I agree that their subs are pretty weak when compared to say, Paradigm/Energy subs)
Hi, I joined this site seeking further information on Mission 760i model speakers. I acquired a pair through "good karma" and kijij- New Brunswick, Canada. I was so impressed, I bought a pair in Toronto (also through kijiji);
Had a family member in Toronto pick them up for me. The order of evolution began with the Mission 760 and was followed by the 760i-which was altered a bit. A while back, I found an article on what changes were made, I think it was the crossovers. I lost the article and was hoping someone here might know. By the way, I bought the speakers as a gift for my niece; they are older than she is. Wonderful near-feild capability and the early versions pre-date speaker technology's migration towards 5 or 7 channel development. I believe this period was a very significant 2 channel speaker development timeframe. Super happy to find 25 year old speakers in mint condition and sound quality. Kindest regards to all Mission owners. Great to share their noteworthy gifts.
