I doubt I'll be able to sell them locally (central WI). Is there an active market for Mirage speakers somewhere? Here in the classifieds, Audiogon, ebay? What do you guys recommend?
: The OMD5s are in high demand, and easy to ship. You could probably sell them here, and they would definitely sell on eBay. OS3-CC still in demand. Should sell on eBay. Much easier if you still have the original boxes. The Omni 150s - hard to say. Try eBay or locally.
Look at closed sales for prices. Sell them separately, not as a set, as they aren't matched.Some unsolicited advice
: Consider keeping the OMD5s and figure out a place to set them up. Or in storage.
Or, if you don't think you're going to get offered much for the Omni 150s, and you want the OMD5 cash, use them.
Either of those could be wall mounted and as a 2.0 would still sound much better than TV speakers, as well as for music.
BTW, I sold my higher end stuff when my first child was about 2. I don't regret doing it, as I wouldn't have used it, and I figured I could find something new when I had time again, and when it was a priority again. But I hung onto some modestly priced speakers, and even added some, and have gotten good use out of them.
The OMD5s are essentially irreplaceable, and not a huge investment, which is why you might hang onto them as 2.0. Or the Omni 150.
It's worth having something to play music with good quality, even if only now and then. Helps maintain sanity, the parent essentials coffee and scotch aren't always options. And you'll start listening to music for and with the kids soon. (There is some kids music that is actually good music.)
When you get time, hook up something that can stream music from a computer, or play it from a player.
