I just got used Mirage M-390i tower speakers. Yesterday, they replaced my Mission m30i (small bookshelf) so I could test them. All connected to the same receiver (Marantz 2215b) and with the same audio source (HTPC, audio CD, analog out). Well, they are totally different (no surprise here). I have to say that I still like the small Mission speakers better. They are just more clear if that's the correct expression. Mirage have better bass (no need for loudness at low volumes) but somehow they are missing something. I have to say though that vocals in Mirage speakers are excellent. They are also very easy to listen too. No fatigue even after few hours at moderate volume levels. Mission speakers are better balanced though. They do lack low end but they are not big enough to have a lot of it. With Mission, I do need loudness, but with it on, I do not need subwoofer for casual listening. Loudness with Mirage speakers would distort the sound too much. I will keep the Mirage connected for few days and then switch back to Mission speakers. Hopefully, my speaker preference will remain the same after the switch. This is my mini review in case somebody is interested in either one of the speakers. I am not an expert by any means not even an advanced amateur when it comes to audio so keep that in mind when reading this.
