Mirage MX 5.1 Speaker System

Introduction

I've always been intrigued by Mirage speakers. Their brand and styling are unmistakable. Having never owned a pair and only partaking in a few brief demos, I was eager to spend some time with the MX 5.1 speaker system. I knew the MX speaker system was compact but when the shipping company arrived with a box that was smaller in diameter than my reference subwoofer I started to feel a little disenchanted. While I was excited about finally getting my hands on some Mirage speakers, I've never been a fan of tiny satellites. While I understand their usefulness in the marketplace, I've always been a big speaker kind of guy. My favoritism towards large speakers isn't just cosmetic; I haven't heard many satellite speakers that can convincingly fill a room with sound, good sound! Being the open minded individual I am, I put aside my assumptions and put the MX 5.1 speaker system in place.
