Aperion is known for excellent quality and unbeatable CS. However, those speakers have a pretty low efficiency, and depending on your distance to them with an entry-level receiver... if volumes never break moderate you might be fine.
Mirage is known essentially for their omni-directional speakers. Some lovers for sure, but probably more who dislike them. In any case if you have a highly reflective setup, it might be a gamble.
In both cases, imho, the sub is not up to snuff. Firstly, I think you just need more brute power. Next, Id personally would want more extension as well.
If you don't get the entire rig all at once, you can drop the sub for now (save for a good one, while the present $800 will buy you some well-valued speakers in the meanwhile.
just my 2 cents, gl and hf.
I need help selecting between two AV receivers. I am looking at the Onkyo TX-SR605 and the Sony STR-910.
I am also selecting a 5.1 speaker system. I am choosing between the Aperion 422 Harmony and the Mirage Nanoset 5.1 system.
The room it is going into is 20'x20' 9' high. It is an open floor plan and is connected to a kitchen of the same size. So a 20'x40'x9' space.
These products are in my price range any help getting best sound would be great
