I am looking for some advice on selecting speakers for my home theater. I have been a long time lurker on this site and finally became a member. I have been doing a lot of reading and research but it seems that I am more confused than before. My system now consists of 5 Mirage Omni Micro Sats and an S10 sub powered by a Yamaha RX-V773. I like the current setup but have purchased a home with a larger theater/living room.

So as it stands now, I have narrowed my setup to the following:

#1
Front L/R speakers- Mirage OMD-15
Center speaker- Mirage OMD-C1
Surrounds- Energy Veritas 3- way speakers

#2
Front L/R Speakers- Energy VS6.2
Center speaker- Energy VS5.2
Surrounds- Energy VS 3-way

Which would be a better option? Definitive Technology BP speakers were also considered but I don't want to spend too much money...$2000 being my budget for speakers. Thank you in advance for your help.

It's really up to you. Depends on whether you like the soundfield that Mirage speakers create, or whether you would rather have direct radiating speakers in your front sound stage.

I have no clue. I was hoping someone has auditioned the Energys and the Mirage OMD-15s and would be able to tell me the difference. I do prefer Mirage but am open to suggestions.

But that choice of the Mirage diffuse sound vs direct radiating is such a personal preference thing. I don't know that anyone can answer that question for you.
