Hello everyone.

If anyone is not using their OMD-5 wall mounts, I would like to buy 2 from you.

I need to put my surrounds up on the wall.

Thank you.

Nick

I believe I may be able to spare 2. PM me with an offer.

They are truly great. I have a pair of M5si speakers (owned for 15 years) and they don't make 'em like that any more.
I would never sell them. They are in a stereo only setup, and the way they disappear in a room and surround you
with sound is remarkable.

Who has heard both the M(1/3/5)si's and the OMD-28s? Anyone running the si's in an Atmos setup? I would love to read your thoughts. I have only heard the Omniguide line of Mirage speakers.

I haven't listened to the new OMD line but am very familiar with the Si and OM line and personally would not use the Si series for HT for a few reasons, number one mainly being fear of blowing a driver since replacements are unobtanium. The other reason would be the amount of high current power needed to safely use them in a HT environment. The 1 and 3 especially. They are not efficient speakers and if used with a under powered HT receiver, you are asking to smoke the tweeters.

Mirage still has parts for the OMD line so that would be a much safer better.

The OMD-28s and C2 also need a ton of high current power 💪. I am running over 500W each.

After reading the speaker forums for a few days my head is spinning as usual. I guess I just need to embrace my Omni 260 set up for a while longer. Has anyone recovered the grills? Mine are showing some age.

I am looking for a pair of OMD-5s in Maple or Rosewood or OS3s in white. I had several pairs of Rosewood that I sold. But, now my wife wants a pair in the kitchen (we recently installed Denon Heos).

I had made a deal for a pair of maple but when the seller was packing them his wife saw them and claimed them (my wife was pissed).

I am willing to buy outright or trade. I have a pair of black OMD-5s, Rosewood OMD-15s, Omnican 5s & 6s, a pair of OC-55s, and a pair of outdoor Oasis Omnis in black for trade.
