The Mission LX CONNECT wireless speaker system couples innovative wireless technology and an award-winning loudspeaker series with versatile Hi-Fi grade connectivity options for a ‘True Wireless’ speaker system. It offers a new level of convenience and performance that changes the game for wireless speaker systems.
LX CONNECT offers wireless connectivity via an advanced wireless hub which hosts all of the connectivity options for your listening pleasure. The LX CONNECT HUB intelligently transmits left and right audio signals to the appropriate speaker via uncompressed 5.8Ghz wireless audio signal transmission. There is no trailing cable between speakers or hub, with no need for the speakers to be connected together via a cable, for genuine ‘True Wireless’ audio.
The speaker system is based upon the Mission LX-2 MKII speakers but with specially engineered, high-power digital ampliﬁcation modules to offer 50w of high fidelity power, from each cabinet (100w per system). Following the LX MKII series design and performance, the LX CONNECT speakers maintain the Mission trademark ‘Inverted Driver Geometry’ design and precision-tuned crossover to yield improved transient attack and astonishing detail. Mission DiaDrive bass units offer superior control of the low-frequency diaphragm while a reﬁned high-frequency performance and a re-engineered cabinet bracing system further helps to create a loudspeaker system that outperforms its price-class.
The LX CONNECT HUB acts as the central console for all of your music sources; including analogue, optical and coax digital inputs. It is a high-speciﬁcation standalone audio hub, in its own right. There is a dedicated HDMI ARC connection to bring high ﬁdelity, true wireless performance for TV, movies and games, while the Bluetooth aptX connection allows for wireless streaming of hi-resolution audio from tablets and smartphones.
The LX CONNECT HUB also doubles as a standalone high-performance USB DAC. It is equipped with the ESS Sabre32 ES9018K2M Reference DAC chipset and a Hi-Fi grade headphone ampliﬁer that will outperform most dedicated headphone amp / DAC combinations at this price-point, alone!
Unlike other wireless and active speakers, where controls and inputs are often placed awkwardly on the back panel, the LX CONNECT HUB is easily controlled via the tactile interface and LCD display. Or, for even more convenience, you can use the included remote control.
ADVANCED WIRELESS HUB
Sporting fantastic new Lux Black and Lux White, as well as classic Walnut Pearl ﬁnish options for the speakers; the Mission LX CONNECT is a truly wireless speaker system that offers an expertly presented audio experience for Hi-Fi lovers, gamers and contemporary digital music enthusiasts, alike.
Roon transforms the experience of browsing music. Artist photos, credits, bios, reviews, lyrics, tour dates, and composers are located automatically, then interconnected by links to build a surfable, searchable digital magazine about your collection.
And Roon finds all the same links between your personal files and the millions of tracks available on TIDAL, so you can start with the music you know, then explore and discover new music from the world beyond your collection.
In addition to music browsing, Roon is a multi-room, multi-user networked audio platform built to the exacting standards of audiophiles. It offers features like bit-perfect playback, DSD and PCM upsampling, multichannel playback, and signal path display.
Roon plays to a number of different types of devices on your home network – Roon Ready, AirPlay, Sonos, Squeezebox, and Meridian – and can be controlled from Mac, Windows, iOS, and Android.
