Excerpt: I have been reviewing and researching the speaker systems for a very long time. I originally had BOSE 3.2.1 system. I was living in an apartment and was happy with BOSE 3.2.1. When I moved into a home, I was thinking of upgrading it to either 5.1 or higher systems. I did a lot of research and was mainly concentrating on traditional speakers. Because of my room dimensions and the seating, traditional speakers are not the ideal fit.
Excerpt: I just received these the 5.1 Mirage OMD set and they look absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately, as I am in the military, I am about to move to the West Coast and will then be immediately deploying overseas. As a result, all I had time to do for now was open the boxes, visually inspect them and then put them back in the box for shipping out West, where they will have to wait until I return from overseas to put them through the motions.
Excerpt: I stumbled across these speakers at the end of my speaker hunt. I was looking for bipolarreflective speakers and kept seeing mention of how certain models sounded as good as a mirage. I did some research before I bought these and read a number of complaints about the packaging they get shipped in, so I was fully prepared to be unimpressed and unconcerned when the boxes showed up three days ahead of schedule.
Excerpt: The rosewood color of the speakers pleased my wife as they matched her furnishings but the sounds they produced were no match for our expectations. It was clear, each note precise and distinct.
Excerpt: I consider myself an audiophile as I have always loved prestine sound. One thing I have noticed over the years is that once you reach a certain level of audio, the differences are subtle. Im not saying they arent there, its just that generally speakers that sell for over $2000 a pair are going to have crisp highs and solid mids and lows. Every once in a while you come across speakers that excel at more than just reproducing sound. They produce an emotional experience.
Excerpt: One of the OMD-15s strengths was its treble, which was extremely smooth. When I played a music, the sound was sparkingly clear and free from harshness. The vocals, strings, and percussion were wonderfully defined, with precisely the right amount of cowbell set slightly back on the stage.
