I'm now feeling slightly vexed that I've got a 50% driver failure rate on my 20-year old Missions...

But it did give me the excuse to get my Neumanns! :mrgreen:

Actually they've never been driven hard - I'm generally a very quiet listener. Which makes me doubly vexed! ;)

I have a 30 year old pair and they still work as expected (I hesitate to say fine because I'm not a big fan of their sound). They spent the first 10 years of their life as nearfields in a working studio and then the rest of the time as kitchen speakers.
