Great Sound, and a Crutchfield rescue
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
The Mirage Nanosat speakers sneak up on you. I recently upgraded from an aging but solid Advent system to the 5.1 Nanosat system with the S8 subwoofer, adding a Nanosat CC for the center channel. That left me with an extra Nanosat satellite, which I put aside as a spare. At first I wasn't blown away - the sound was different from what I was used to. But I quickly realized that the sound had opened up, regardless of the audio source. Both my wife and I noticed nuances in recordings we had owned and listened to for decades, even vinyl. The room was more evenly filled with music, and, counterintuitively, while the speakers themselves were harder to locate stereo imaging was more precise. I can, and do, listen for hours. But this review isn't just about the speakers. After 3 months, I decided to buy one more Nanosat satellite to pair with the fifth speaker from the original set, to use in a second room for now and eventually in a 7.1 set up. At this point, I discovered Mirage had discontinued my model. Crutchfield to the rescue! They found a "dent and scratch" speaker (a nick the size of a pin prick) and had it to me 48 hours later. Rachel Maddow and Pat Metheny now fill my kitchen - thank you Crutchfield, and Mirage!
