I have the Mirage OS3 sats and can tell you they make excellent surround speakers. I'm running them with the OMD-15's for the fronts and the OS3-CC for the center. I am totally satisfied and please with the sound. I have found the Mirage design makes the physical placement of my surrounds less critical than other speakers. To me, the sound quality is top notch.


(Once my SVS sub arrives I'll really be rockin')

I don't put a lot of stock in specs alone. I use specs to group systems (speakers, receivers, computers, etc.) into categories, or levels. For speakers, you should always allow your ears to make the final determination. Specs alone just will not cut it.

I use specs but the final decision is by listening. I just got 4 OS3's, an OSCC and 2 MM-8 subs. I and relly happy with the full rich sound these produce. My main reason for considering Mirage was to down size from the MK speakers I had. I'm just as happy with my mirage setup as the Mk.
