I like the Mirage sound but also like traditional speakers. Each speakers has glorious reviews. Anyone heard both?
I am thinking of buying the Sierra-1s to listen, and if I'm not fully convinced I can send them beck and buy the OMD-28 (which should sound like bigger & better OMD-5s). I like the fact the OMD-5s are easily wall mounted... it's not as easy to use Sierra-1 as surrounds.
Thoughts? Other suggestions? Thanks.
Since you own the OMD-5 you should give the Sierra 1's a try & compare in home. I did likewise ...albeit with the NrT version against my Energy RC's which BTW share similar drivers to your Mirage speakers and opted not to retuen the Sierras and I eventually sold the RC's. I have since upgraded to the Sierra Towers and I'll soon be adding STC....
