I am living in the Philippines and was interested in purchasing a set of Mission speakers for my 2 channel audio system.
After much searching the internet, I came to believe that unless you live in the UK or Canada, you can pretty much forget about the Missions.
Well, I wrote the following email to Mission in the UK and got the following response back about 2 days ago:
Subject: Mission dealers in the US and Philippines
I am wanting to purchase a pair of Mission M66i floor standing speakers and a pair of Mission M60i Bookshelf speakers. I spend half my time in the USA and the other half in the Philippines. The problem is ... I can't find on the internet anyone in either the USA or the Philippines that sells Mission speakers ... And it really suprises me that there are no dealers in the US that I am aware of ! Can you give me a list of merchants in both the US and the Philippines that can access these speakers for me. Also, your website does not say what the suggested retail price is for your speakers. Can you also tell me the price for a pair of both the M66i and M60i speakers. Thank's so much for any help.
I'm afraid that we do not currently distribute to the US and Philippines. The only route I can think for you to take would be to contact our distributor in Canada. We do not have the prices on the website due to them being diiferent all over the world.
Well, I called around some high-end audio shops in Manila, and found 2 that can get me the speakers here in the Philippines.
Here is the cost quote to me:M66i
Floor Standing (per pr)
35,000 pesos = $752 USDM60i
Bookshelf (per pr)
13,300 pesos = $286 USD
Now, I have no idea if this is a fair price or not since the the Mission website does not give a suggested retail price, but that's the best I can do over here.
What suprises me (from the email above) is that Mission isn't even aware of the fact that these speakers can be bought over here in the Philippines, and from reading this thread, it looks like there is a company in the US selling them too.
