I would give a "slight" edge to the Mirage, but both are tiny sets of speakers. You do realize where the 4/5 are supposed to go(to the sides of the listening area...not behind it) that a "wireless kit"... 1. Will end up with "more wire" than just running off the AVR. (Assuming this is a 14x14 or smaller room...because the speakers are tiny) 2. Produces "noise" when the surrounds aren't actually being used(going to put the wireless amp where you can reach it to turn it off?) 3. Don't use your microwave while the Rocketfish is on. 4. Don't answer your cell phone while the Rocketfish is on. 5. Don't use Bluetooth to the home theatre while the Rocketfish is on. 6. Make sure your home cordless isn't 2.4. 7. If you have a baby monitor(or your neighbors) don't have one on 2.4. 8. Make sure nobody around you has wireless security cameras on 2.4. 9. Make sure your wifi isn't 2.4.

Thanks for the Advice! Ill take that as a bad investment. I have decided to go with Mirage but was wondering, if i should go with the Nanostat or the MX. Also, is there a AVR that you would recommend for this set up in the price range between $200-400? Thanks!
