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.
Excerpt: Im grateful to the person who posted on an audio forum about these speakers being on sale at Vanns. After looking at the product page then reading as many reviews as I could, I purchased them even though Ive never heard any Mirage products before.
Excerpt: The Mirage OMD 15 is truely a unique speaker and provides a truely unique sound experience to boot. I have always been a fan of front tower speakers that had a presence. However, with the OMD 15 the presence came in way of it unique look and that was before turning on the receiver...and once the receiver was on the difference was audible immediatly. The music was around me and envloping me rather than coming at me.
Excerpt: purchased from online recently on sale. already had omd-5s which have been moved to surrounds. also have mirage subwoofer. the omd-15s are still being broken in but sound fantastic. i found myself prefering listening to music without the other speakers or subwoofer. their bass is that good and they have such a full sound . they can can fill my large great room. a satisfied purchaser.
Excerpt: Exceptional imaging! Wide, deep and tall imaging, youll love it. Outstanding clarity and detailed presentation that will knock your socks off!! Vanns price cannot be beaten for these speakers. Vocals are amazingly life like and lush, giving you the you are there feeling. The speakers could use a bit more bass, but overall there is nothing not to like about these babies.
Excerpt: I purchased these speakers knowing that she may be upset... Then she was blown away by the beautiful workmanship of these gorgeous speakers. Further, when I hit her with the sound she fell back with an eargasim.
Excerpt: Like a lot of the reviews before mine, these speakers are awesome! First the finish, You know when you see a hot rod with a paint job that looks like candy and makes your mouth water? well, thats what these speakers are like! Then the sound, at low volume, I started to hear things, from music that Ive heard for years, that i never noticed before. I cant wait to crank them up after the break in. Last, but not least, is Vanns.
Excerpt: I have never read so many reviews on speakers as I did on the Mirage omd-15 but due to the high price of $2500 per pair I thought that I would have to save quite a while to acquire them but when Vanns advertised these for less than $1000, I emailed Roger Kanno who reviewed these a few years ago to find out why these were so cheap. I quickly placed an order based on his reply.
