Not a final setup, as I'm only half moved house due to this lockdown malarkey... Proper rack will follow at some point.

Lounge rig: Arcam CD72 (although connected digitally to amp so kinda irrelevant), Audiolab 6000A, Mission 752 with upgraded Peerless D27TG tweeters, biwired with Audioquest FLX-Slip-stuff. Rega P2 not in shot as I currently have nowhere to put it.

PC rig: USB to Cambridge DacMagic Plus , Marantz PM6004, Dali Zensor 3. Housebrick speaker stands to follow!

Spare kit with nowhere to go:
Dali Zensor 5
Mission 751
Mission 753 (currently up on blocks)
TDL Studio 0.5, RTL G20, RTL3SE
Mission 780 (second edition)
Q 3020
Rotel RA-02
Rotel RC-03 and 3xRB-03
Pioneer A400 x2
Rotel 930AX
Rotel 935BX
Marantz CD6000OSE
Philips CD618

Yeah maybe time for a clearout...

Nice!

Good to see the Missions still in use. I owned various pairs over the years and still use my 750LE's.
Ooops, only just noticed this reply.

I love my Missions! Often use the 751s on the PC setup, but the Zensors are doing a better job with the acoustics of my new place. Got a pair of 780s (second edition, look like the 750LE) on loan at a mate's place as well, and they are arguably my favourite small standmount ever, so listenable.
Got the 752s for an absolute steal on Ebay- perfect nick, seller 20 mins drive away, £93... Another £70 for the tweeters to replace the flat, 'orrible units Mission chose for this model, and these babies now show clean heels to almost anything else I've heard. They've relegated my fairly new Zensor 5s back into their box...

Update-

Just swapped the tweeters out for Seas HO-881 units. I bought these for the 752s in the first place, but they were too bright and aggressive. Decided I wanted to try again, as they're higher quality units than the Vifa models I have been using.
I've taken a decibel off them with a couple of high-grade resistors, and the change is, on first impressions, very positive. The imaging is far better, and the slight midrange 'hole' of the first attempt with them seems to have been fixed, and the very top end has a nice airiness to it- something the Vifas couldn't quite manage despite their 30kHz ceiling. Everything seems to be as it should.
The overall balance has improved too, it now seems warmer, yet still open and punchy.

They sound even better than they already did! Can't grumble at that for half an hour's work.
