Danny Phillips loves the design of this sub/sat system – but will he also love its performance?
You might find this hard to believe, but the life of a home cinema reviewer isn’t all parties and press lunches. Hauling huge floorstanders and whopping subwoofers around the test room is a big part of the job, an activity that’ll give you a bad back quicker than you can say sciatica.
So when a system like Mission’s M3 (or M-Cubed) comes along, it's easy to breathe a sigh of relief. The five adorably compact satellites, each measuring just 90mm high, can be manoeuvred into position without the aid of a girdle, and when in situ they don’t take up vast swathes of living room space. Even the 274mm-wide subwoofer will slip next to your telly virtually unnoticed.
