I am going to demo these two brands. I would like to hear opionions on the quality of the speakers. Are they comparable? Are these only avail from dealers for retail? or will i be able to work a deal with the venders. Let me know your thoughts. They will be matched to a Pioneer elite vsx 74txvi and a velodyne foundation sub in a small 12x13ft room. Thanks for any input.


Here are the two packages im going to listen too:


mirage omnisat v2


omnisat v2 FS x2 $500

omnisat v2 cc center $400

omnisat v2 satelite x2 $250



definitive technology mythos


five $500 x2

six $350 x2

seven center $350

I don't have any experience compairing the omni v2 system to to the def tech mythos, but I can give you my input on the omni v2 system. My system is as follows:


Front R/L: 2x v2FS

Center: 1x v2CC

Rear R/L: 2x v2SS

sub: Omni S10

Reciever: Pioneer Elite 74TXVi

(sound familiar?
)


I absolutely love this system. I've had the v2 system for about 6 months now. It has beautiful soundstaging (which is the omnipolar claim to fame ), so they're great if you use your system primarily for movies. They also don't have a particular sweet spot b/c of the omnipolar tech, so you can sit in many different positions and the sound still sounds like it is coming from where it should be. You can just sit back, close your eyes and they sound just comes at you from no particular place - the speakers themselves seem to fade away.


A lot of people think that the mirages aren't that great for music but I think they sound really good - especially vocals! The sound they produce seems so effortless and smooth. Very clear, yet plenty rich with just enough oomph. The v2FS speakers, despite having the 6 woofers, are a tad weak at the low end, but is easily made up for by the sub (I have the crossover set at 100Hz). The auto MCACC of the elite also does a great job at calibrating these speakers. Anyways, I hope this helps, and if you have anymore questions, especially considering our similar setups, feel free to ask.

Are the Omnisat's versatile to be used for front as well as rear surround speakers?


Thanks

I also have the Omnisats for a second system:

v2 floorstanders

v2 center

Mirage S10 sub

I also have 4 of the v2 sats, but I'm not using them at the moment (the room the system is in presents some serious challenges for surrounds
)

It's a terrific system, both HT and music.

I also have 4 Omnican 6 in-ceilings for surrounds in my main system (Omnicans have the same design as the Omnisats). Very pleased with them also.

Yes, I do believe they are very versatile and can be used in such an arrangement. In fact, the HT specialist who I buy my gear through actually had his mirage setup so that he could switch between 5 V2 SS omnisats, or the more powerful V2 FS/CC/SS setup. The 5 ominsats did sound very good, especially if they will not be in a large theater room or you live in an apartment or something where floorstanding speakers might be a little too much. Of course they will not be able to produce the lows that the V2 FS speakers do, but that can easily be compensated for with a decent subwoofer. As I have the Mirage S10 it is a great subwoofer - albeit I'm a bit biased
- but the more affordable S8 is also good or any powered subwoofer would probably work fine (to varying degrees of course). I hope this helps!



Cheers,

Steve
