    Outstanding Value!

    I absolutely fell in love with these speakers the first time I heard them and the honeymoon is still going. These things really pack a big sound in a small package, and they look fantastic as well. The only thing The center speaker seems perfectly matched with the satellites, conversation is clear and direct, but at the same time it doesn't overwhelm the smaller speakers. The ambiance created by this setup as part of a home theater system is astounding. Obviously its way cool when watching an action or war movie to hear the sounds of the battle raging all around you, but what really gives me chills is the things you pick up during a quiet scene. A dog barking in the distance that sounds like its coming from outside your house. A twig snapping to the left. subtle breathing from behind. That's what really makes this setup shine, it performs equally well putting you in the center of a raging battle as it does having you hiding in the jungle listening for the sound of footsteps. The only thing I'd recommend is to purchase a good powered sub-woofer to go along with the nanosats. These speakers actually do a pretty good job on their own, but any speakers this size will have some limitations in the low range, and when you pair these speakers with a good sub-woofer, a big screen plasma TV, and a blu-ray or HD-DVD player you may never go to the movie theater again!

    Superior 5.0 system.

    These things are simply a work of art. They're small enough to not be an eyesore on the wall, yet large enough to not sound tinny like most satellite speakers. Paired with an average 5.1 Yamaha amp, the sound is incredible. The clarity is better than any other system I've heard inside a home. I had considered Bose, but once I heard these things I never looked back. Simply put, these are the best sounding satellite-style speakers I've ever heard. The mounts worked great, and the speakers worked exceptionally well mounted upside down near the ceiling, with the center channel resting on top of the TV. The soundstage these things create is beautiful. They really shine with Blu-Ray HD audio. The center channel is strong and doesn't seem weak like on many systems, and having identical speakers for front L&R and surround L&R makes a huge difference in accurate surround sound effects. Worth every penny! I purchased from the Brier Creek BestBuy in NC. If you haven't heard these things, call a BestBuy to see which stores can demo the speakers - you will likely be pleasantly surprised. I would not trade this for any other system, and I migrated from floor-standing speakers due to space. You'll definitely want to add a subwoofer to the setup. I used the Mirage S10.

    Great speakers?Great Price!

    I spent a great deal of time wondering how I was going to crack the "Bose" craving I had but didn't like dropping over 4K for the 48 series for a receiver that wouldn't allow me a great deal of expansion or versatility. The Best Buy Magnolia Rep steered me toward the Nanosat series and I haven't turned back! These speakers are a steal for the price. Easy to mount and the sound quality is AWESOME! I was leary at first with it not being a "Name brand" like Klipsch or Bose, but these speakers sound just as good in my media room as they did in the store! Only downside I did have with this set IS that the sub was not part of the spkr package. However, the spkrs and sub together with the Denon 3808CI I purchased gave me the flexibility I needed for adding components/gaming systems at less than the Bose price. Something Bose's receiver wouldn't allow me to do. Overall, these speakers pack a great punch and the sound quality is great as far as the seperation of signals goes. If the sound is coming from the left, you are going to hear it from the left. XBox 360 is insane now with these speakers as well. I can hear bad guys footsteps coming from a mile away now!

    Great, but not worth the $400 over the entry model

    These are great speakers. I got them on sale for 480 which was less than the entry level mirage set. Instead of waisting time on all the good things (they are great) that you can read in the other reviews, I will only tell the bad. All the speakers are nearly exactly the same as the other mirage set. SAME DRIVERS AND TWEETERS. The finish is different, they are 1/4 inch taller, and the way the wall mounting braket attaches is slightly different. The center channel is also the same, except wider box and shape, but again: same driver and tweeter and such (it probably makes it sound slightly better due to the bigger size). Don't waist money on these, buy the cheeper ones. Another problem, the sticker that says 'mirage' curls off after a short time. Bottom line: READ THIS IF YOU READ ANYTHING: Basically, they changed the finish and changed the shape of the center speaker, and marked it up 450 bucks. Go with the entry level mirage set! Both sets are great! But they are the same.

    Great speakers in a small package

    I recently bought these speakers and totally impressed so far. I replaced a 12 year set of Eosone I had bought from Best Buy. When it comes to watching movies or HD these are far superior. My other speakers also took up alot of space in our living room and now with the huge front towers gone we have more space and the cats have nothing to scratch their claws on either now. Mine are powered by a Denon 2308 and I am still using my JBL 10 inch subwoofer. One other great thing was when I went into look at them they had them on sale in the store for $699. After I had the store rep play then for me in the sound room there was no looking back. I would recommend looking into these speakers for the price before spending all the money on a set of Bose.

    I am thrilled with these speakers, I had a heck of a time making a final decision as to which ones I was going to purchase. But the guys at Magnolia were very helpful and gave me a great demo that helped. I replaced a 20 year old system with these speakers, that ultimatly are in a odd shaped room. The omni-directional speakers were definitly the right decision for me. I connected these to a Denon Receiver, did the sound set up, and what a sound system this is. From a movie in surround to just playing music through the radio, very impressive, full sound. I used my old Yamaha Sub, also worked out just fine, as suggested any sub from 100-250W would be sufficient and they were right. Great choice for me.

    Love These Speakers

    I previously had bought a BOSE speaker system thinking I would like it. After I got done installing it in, turned it out and absolutely hated the way it sounded. It did not fill up the room with sound/music. I started doing more research and found this speaker system sounded a lot better atleast at the bestbuy sound room. Installed it in my home and I love the way this thing sounds. It is everything that I wanted. I did spend more then I wanted to however I am very happy with my setup. I am using the Yamaha RX-V863BL receiver. I would recommend anything with a good budget to pickup a set of these. They also come with great warranty.

    it is a great sound system. goes well with my Flat panel LCD SONY tv. bought a whole package incl, denon receiver, tv, and sound system along with psp3. all the minute details can be heard and felt through the speakers. only drawback the system doesn't include sub-woofer. should be purchased separately for another 400 bucks. so I purchased a mirage sub-woofer at a different online vendor for 250 bucks. the woofer is very good too. i am really glad i bought this system. would definetly recommend the nano mirage system.

    These speakers fill the room with a warm smooth sound. In use in a study with a PC which has an external amp - I tunes music sounds great, center speaker clear and clean sound. Best Buy I have made in many years. Have been watching TV and Movies on the PC and using the I-tunes for music. Rear Speaker mounted in the corners of the room easily. My wife likes the small speakers as they blend into the room and take up no floor space. Overall these speaker sound better than my Bose units in the main Den with the large screen TV.

    The sound is amazingly realistic. I connected these speakers to Denon AV Receiver 2310 CI. Now my home theater experience has totally changed after connecting my Verizon FiOS DVR for TV, PS3, Wii and iPod. My whole family is enjoying the sound quality. The sound quality is really great for such a small size speaker with strong body. I feel, it is a an excellent choice. I didnot see any cons till now.

    Bose Who?

    This sounds great at high volumes, and it packs a great punch with the mirage sub. If you get a bigger sub it may out power the speakers. The speakers come with mounts, and you can have the speakers fire up or down. The sound distribution is great it doesn't high vocals like Bose speakers. These speakers are great with music. I power them with a Denon 2808ci.
