    Has anyone heard the new Mirage speakers yet? They are the Mirage Omnisat speakers, but towers and bookshelves instead of the sat's. I can't find any information on the Mirage site, but they are very cool. The towers only cost $1200CDN!! They sound very big. It is very diffrent from my Klipsch Ref. I can't say which one I like more, because I didn't have my own music. I think they came in last night. I'll go back tommorow and bring some CD's. See if there as great as I think they are[​IMG]

    Iam VERY impressed with the omni model 60 bookshelf speakers that I heard on stands....neat Idea, great sound ...fabulous for those who need good off-axis behavior...wide, deep, natural soundstage when listening to Bush, Fleck, O'Conner, Ma, Meyer,etc.....I haven't listened to hard rock on them yet though.....

    I heard towers today for about 20 min. Sounded great. Metallica was smooth, yet power-full and open. D.S "Money for Nothing" was amazing. Very open. Liquid like high's. Sting's voice flew across the room. Drums pounded.

    I'm not sure If I like them more then my RF3's. They do sound very different however. The only way to tell would for me to AB test them side by side. The mirage's had smoother more laid back sound. Some detail was missing I could hear on my Klipsch, but some notes I could here on the mirage, were less noticeable on the klipsch. Highs were fine on the mirage, but the mid-upper bass lacked some detail. With closer inspection, you may notice these mirage speakers look cheep. Oh well, no speaker is perfect.

    I listened to them today along with the klipch rf-5's. THe mirages were had a very wide open soundstage but felt they actually sounded better when standing up. Sitting down they were too diffused and overall they did not have enough meat on the bones and although a sub helped I still prefered the klipsches. However I could see how some may like their sound. I also found their tweeter bright at high levels.
