I must say that part of my instant and overwhelming love of these speakers are in part based on what they are replacing, a 5.1 mini JBL system. I had that system for 10 years and always loved how it performed even though I knew it could be out done. About 3 years ago I decided I would replace the JBL system and after reading the reviews the Mirage MX 5.1 seemed my best option. The price was the only thing that held me back. When the price dropped on Black Friday this year I jumped at it.
I'm the production manager for a national jazz festival and I know what a good professional sound system sounds like. I also know that any system worth it's weight will need to be adjusted for the space it's in. I followed the speaker placement described in the manual to the letter placing all speaker close or exactly to what the manual suggested. I then took both manuals, for the Mirage MX and my amp, a Sony STR-DN1010, to one of my sound engineers. I know what it should sound like I just don't know how to get there. He walked me through some of the adjustment and what to expect on my AV receiver and the Mirage MX subwoofer. I can't stress enough on how important this was. Night and day difference. Let me just say here, any reviews that aren't 5 stars are because these little beauties or the receiver they are connected to were not adjust correctly.
Pros - Quality, size and by all means sound.
Cons - I really can't think of any.
What is most remarkable is that speakers so small can create such a full sound. The satellites are about 4 by 3 by 3.5 inches (slightly taller with the grille), and use the Mirage trademark omnipolar driver. This tweeter radiates sound outward in a circle for a truly immersive soundfield. Whether listening to music or movies, the MX 5.1 creates a wide and deep soundstage with excellent detail. On the DTS CD, "The Eagles: Hell Freezes Over," the instruments and voices are placed precisely across the front 3 speakers and the enthusiastic crowd fills the rear of the room making you feel like you're there at the concert. And as for low bass response, that's where the sub comes in.
The subwoofer is a petite but powerful 8 inch cube. How this little guy puts out such clean low bass is a mystery, but that's what it does. Watching the intro to "Blade Runner," we heard the deep bass resonance of the Vangelis soundtrack and flaming cityscape and a grin slowly spread across our faces. "Avatar" was similarly impressive with the low bass rumble of gunfire and explosives providing a powerful and satisfying foundation for the climactic final battle sequence. The sub doesn't go down to the very lowest octaves but you can't expect that out of something this size. The bass that it does reproduce is solid and substantial without being boomy.Read more ›
The only cons I have is that these speaker are not great for center channel, I already new that since I did a lot of research on this speakers. I replace the center channel with the Mirage Os3 center channel is about $400 but worth every penny. Also note this are surround speaker they will not perform well for regular music, in other words they will not sound loud like a regular stereo, is playing music is not your primary use for these speakers I will highly recommend for surround that's hat they are made for. You can try various setting depending on your receiver to see which one match your criteria for regular music, on mines I have it set up on stereo 7 channel which works well for me. Overall you cannot go wrong with this speakers they produce excellent sound they look beautiful and they are very small so they can be easily place almost any where in a room.

Subs: 2 mirage MX subs
