    Hi all,
    I'm thinking of replacing my BOSE 901's with some new speakers currently I'm SERIOUSLY close to purchasing the Mirage OM-7 Omnipolar speakers and the OM-C2 for Center, the three speakers combined will run me around $2500.00...
    I've auditioned them in the hi-fi store and they sounded great in 2 channel stero (AUDIO), next week, I'm going to have them setup in the store for 5.1 / 6.1 home theater...
    I'm looking for the following:
    1. Opinions on these speakers (personal experience)
    2. Recommendation for other speakers
    3. Direct firing vs. Omnipolar (bi-polar) design as it relates to Home Theater...
    I'm primarily going to be using this 80% for Home theater and 20% Audio...
    Thanks in advance for your help/advice...
    -Alex
    PS. Please NO JOKES about the 901's, I already know how bad they are, no need to run salt on my wounds... [​IMG]))

    Although I have never heard them see if you can get a demo of the M&K s-150 THX speakers.

    David,
    Thanks for the info on the M&K s-150 speakers, I don't know a LOT about speakers as you can tell from my original BOSE purchase, please let me know if the M&K s-150 are comparable to the OM-7 in price and quality...

    Well the price of the M&k's are a little higher $2700 for a pair as far as Quality goes they must be decent considering
    they were used in the mixing process of Star Wars episode.
