Mirage Speakers

I recently picked up a pair of mirage omni 60s and like them quite a bit (great price on ebay). They are 2-way bookshelf size but fill my smallish room quite well (good bass). I am currently using the omni 60s for front and bose 161 (if you're just gonna rip on bose don't post) for surrounds. I like the sound in my room, which is a strange shaped smaller room. Actually, one of the selling points on the mirage was their ability to handle non-standard placements well. I use my system (an onkyo SR502) about equal for dvd and music. Right now I am lacking a sub, but don't miss it (I am constantly impressed with the base of these speakers, but suspect they will be lacking for some movies).

The question I have is how do people rate these speakers, and mirage speakers in general?

The reason why I am asking is that in 6 months to a year I will probably bening the expansion and/or upgrading of my system and I am trying to get an idea of how to go.

Thanks.

Generally speaking Mirage rates fairly well in the audiophile world. They are part of API which produces Energy and Athena, which are also excellent products. I cant say that I have any experience with your specific speakers, but if you are happy with them, then that is more than enough.

I haven't heard the Mirage bookshelves, only their towers which sounded terrible---then again the guy was running them off a lousy Onkyo stereo receiver so that probably had a lot to do with it.

Mirage towers are outstanding driven by seperate components. TRUST ME!!!! I almost bought a pair. They can walk the walk right next to my maggies, sounding just as good, but having dynamics AND bass to boot. The only reason why I didnt was because they were almost 3 times the price oh my MMG's and couldnt justify it at the time.

They were WELL WORTH THE ROUGHLY $1400 HOWEVER!!!!!!!!!

Gavin,

You're probably right; Canadians generally do make some very good speakers.
