Summary: I used to pay not much attention the rear speakers as I am not 100% into AV (mostly audio only). As soon as I put this pair up as the rear to complement the front OMD28 pair, the stage comes alive! In audiophile terms, the best word may be "Presence"!
Summary: I probably have had over 15 pairs of speakers come and go over the last few years and I spend a good deal of time restoring older classic speakers, with dedicated systems for just about every room in the house. My first experience with Mirage was a set of Mirage OMD 5s I dropped into my Home office system. Those OMD 5s outperformed a set of 1500.00 Bookshelf speakers I was running at the time.
Summary: I've had these speakers for about a month now. I have the glossy rosewood finish and am in love with how they look. They look way more high end than than even the original selling price suggests. More good news comes with the sound. I did as much research as I could before perchasing these and read that they lean more to warmth. I agree. I am not a fan of bright speakers and definitely prefer a warm sound when listening to music.
Summary: Just bought 2, 1 month ago and am adding 2 more.great out of the box.can only get better.matched with omd c1 center.omdr rear.velodyne sub.Yamaha rxv 1800.great soundstage.omdr adds depth compared to omd 5's.great value for the money spent compared to others.superb construction and finish.
Summary: There might be better words to call the sound they produce but ill call it spatial sounding. Its really different from what im used to, more direct placement sounding speakers. But for my personal application where its located in a nook only 1 foot from the rear wall and 1" away from the side walls its as good as it gets. Soundstage is huge for its placement and it fills the room nicely.
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 just received these Mirage speakers and I am more than happy with the purchase. They are a piece of art, sound amazing and worth every $. Believe it or not, but they come with silk gloves... Would highly recommend giving it a shot. delivery took only took 3 days. Any time again!
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...
