Summary: I bought a pair of these at bargain prices to go with my nano-stat mirage system. Best investment ever. The sound is fantastic. The speakers are very sturdy as the boxes were practically in tatters when I received them.
Summary: I started out with, and still have, Bose 901 series VI and although the Bose are great they actually can't match the quality of the sound that comes from these speakers and these things are not near as power hungry. Close your eyes and it's almost like being there. I'm also very satisfied with the bass that comes from these and cannot imagine, if these sound this good, how much better (if possible) that the higher priced Mirage speakers sound.

Summary: Posting here also, as I accidentally posted to the OMD-15 theater-speaker system category. I only have the stereo pair. These are excellent speakers for the money. I run them bi-wired, and augmented by a subwoofer. My room is 13Wx20Lx8H. SOUNDSTAGE: Huge and holographic. Extends beyond the side-speaker boundaries, and, on the right recording, has great depth, going beyond my rear wall. Great soundstage height too.
Summary: I have just recently completed the 100 hour burn-in and would like to give my impressions this early as I believe it certainly deserves 5 stars even now. I have connected it to a variety of equipment to test synergy and also see how far it can scale with better dac, amp, etc. The best gear I connected to it was this setup: audio-gd power filter, ref 3, dac9mk3, fbi-500, and decent cables and no weak links, using fast electronic music to test speed and detail, opera music...
Summary: After auditioning these for a while and reading about them at Nanosat Mirage i decided to pull the trigger. Sure am glad I did, these easily exceeded my expectations and match perfectly with the OMD C1 center which is now half off online.
Summary: I suppose a pair of cotton gloves is packed with each speaker because these babies clearly beg to be caressed. What an elegant design ---sleek, rounded and glistening. That sums up their sound as well; instruments just materialize out of thin air with remarkable realism and soundstage. Couldn't be more pleased with the look, the sound and the value.
