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.
Excerpt: This is a great speaker! I have had it for 30 days now and it sounds better than I expected. I should have it broke in next month to give it the real test. I am playing them at a moderate volume.
Excerpt: I have been looking at the Mirage Omnistat 5 speakers for some time and then saw this deal on Vanns and could not believe it. I went to a local big name store and they could not even get these speakers and could only match Vanns price by offering me a lower end model. Needless to say, I ordered these speakers and they are awsome. The are beautiful and sound as good as they look. They have a full range of sound that the lower models simply cannot match.
