I am new to these forums, I must admit that the reason why I signed up was because I am in need of advice regarding floorstanding speakers. I am very happy with my current setup but am considering upgrading? from a pair of Athena AS-F2 floorstanders to the Mirage 595is bipolar floorstandering speakers. The Mirage pair that I am looking at are being offered by a family friend who has hardly logged 15 hours of playtime on them and cannot use them because of his young children (at an outstanding price might I add). I have yet to hear these speakers personally but am interested in hearing any opinions as to whether or not it would be prudent to switch to these speakers. I have read a few reviews that say the soundstage of these speakers is superb, which could be a better match my listening area (20'x20').
I would be highly appreciative of any of the experts and persons knowledgeable with these two brands to give their two cents.
My current setup: (2.1)
Receiver: HarmanKardon HK3480
Front: Athena AS-F2
Sub: Acoustic Research S115PS
Input: Creative Audigy 2ZS Soundcard
Speaker Wire: StraightWire Stage(10ft), Sub -THX Monster
Used PURELY for music, mostly for entertaining company.
