Wireless hi-fi? Mission accomplished!

Combining award-winning acoustic engineering by Mission and electronic design by Audiolab, the Mission LX Connect is a compact hi-fi system with the convenience of wireless speakers.

Legendary British loudspeaker manufacturer Mission continues to build on its reputation for compelling musicality and innovative design with a new stereo wireless speaker system – the LX Connect. Fusing the convenience of cable-free speaker connection with the functionality and sound quality of a high-performance hi-fi system, LX Connect benefits from acoustic and electronic engineering of the highest order to deliver a complete solution for under £1000.

Central to the LX Connect’s design is the LX-2 MkII – a pair of Mission speakers launched in 2020 as part of the LX MkII Series. Recipients of numerous excellent reviews, the LX-2 MkIIs are traditional ‘passive’ hi-fi speakers, designed to be connected via speaker cables to an amplifier. To create the LX Connect, Mission has taken the LX-2 MkII, enhanced its design and added a suite of high-performance technologies to create an active wireless speaker system with a unique range of attributes.

 

The DAC stage supports hi-res PCM up to 32-bit/384kHz over USB and 24-bit/192kHz via the coaxial and optical inputs; DSD (up to DSD256) is also supported over USB. An RCA-stereo output is provided with fixed and variable output options, fed by a high-quality analogue stage – this enables the Hub to perform as an off-board DAC/preamp to connect to an external amplifier, or feed an active subwoofer to augment the LX Connect speakers. A high-quality headphone amp is also included, again derived from Audiolab – with its current-feedback circuitry, excellent gain bandwidth and high slew rate, a dynamic and detailed performance with all manner of headphones is assured.

Bluetooth reception complies with the Bluetooth 5 standard for optimum quality, reliability and range, and includes decoding for aptX HD, aptX LL (for AV media), regular aptX, AAC and SBC.

 

Generous hubby

The two LX Connect active speakers can be placed up to 20m away from the Hub, wherever the user desires. The Hub transmits to them wirelessly on frequencies between 5.2GHz and 5.8GHz, switching automatically to ensure the most stable connection and eschewing the crowded 2.4GHz band to avoid interference. The Hub can transmit hi-res audio up to 32-bit/192kHz to the speakers – impressive for wireless speakers at any price level – with fully optimised time alignment for perfect stereo.

The uncompressed Wi-Fi signal from the Hub is processed within the speakers by Mission’s bespoke Music Connect signal processing technology and passed to the 60W Class D amp circuitry that resides in each speaker, delivering ultra-low distortion and detailed, engaging sound.

Expertly designed to deliver high speed, low latency and excellent acoustic transparency, Music Connect also allows the user to select optional EQ adjustments. Three Bass EQ settings allow for stand mounting (0 default), close to rear wall siting and/or shelf mounting (-6dB), and free-space positioning (+6dB), adjusted by a switch on speakers’ rear panel. In addition, the user can select Music or Movie mode via the Hub – Music offers the optimal balance for audiophile listening while Movie offers a mild enhancement of bass and midrange to bring dialogue and effects to life when watching films or TV.

Further sonic tailoring options can be applied via the Hub, including a choice of three digital filters and four DSD bandwidth settings (applicable to the stereo-RCA and headphone outputs), left/right channel balance and adjustable delay – to sync a subwoofer with the LX Connect speakers, for example. The Hub includes an OLED display with adjustable brightness and can be controlled using the included remote or by touch-sensitive controls on the unit itself.

 

Get a Roon

The Roon platform has become the standard-bearer for high-quality digital music management and streaming. The LX Connect is officially ‘Roon Tested’, meaning it has been put through its paces rigorously by Roon and certified for use in a Roon audio environment – for example, when connected to a PC or Mac running Roon software.
